The whole point of carb-backloading is to do it with glucose or starch which is essentially chains of glucose, not fructose. Since glucose will elicit an insulin response, in order to shuttle glucose and amino acids into the cells, it is... (more)

nuts are far more calorie dense than fruit. take the nuts out, keep the fruit. it's VLC mythos that fruit will magically prevent fat loss. energy balance will always rule, even if people are too stupid to believe it.

My son loves raisin. I understand that it's a fruit and the sugar content, but I never hear anyone talk about them. Are raisins avoided for some reason I am unaware of?

Are raisins avoided for some reason I am unaware of? Raisins should be avoided because they have astronomically high sugar levels, and half of that sugar is fructose. Fructose is toxic. The body can dispose of it safely in small amounts but... (more)

Commercially grown produce is sprayed with wax, pesticides, chlorine derivatives, etc. You do want to wash to get a least some of it off. Ingestion of some of those things over time can't be good for you. This all in addition to what Andrea is... (more)

It's obviously not natural but it's still fruit and, presumably, has a similar nutrient profile just with the added convenience of not watching out for seeds. Seedless fruit is easier to eat at your desk but is there more to it? For example,... (more)

In a word, fructose. Fructose signals our bodies to pack on stores for the winter. Fructose is available in large amounts only at the end of summer, when ripe fruits are abundant. So we pack on the fat to be able to survive the lean times. (more)
