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.
