Sorry I am FULL of questions today... I use to eat a lot of apples -- 4+ a day. It wd fill me up --now that I stopped eating apples due to fructose issues.. when i eat other fiber rich foods -- don't fill me up at all.
Just cause it fills you up, doesn't mean it's good, if that's what you're diggin at. Actually I'm not really sure what you're diggin at. 4+ apples per day is horrendous. So I'm glad you stopped doing that. Anyway I think if you eat anything the size of an apple 4 times a day, that it would fill you up. 4 apples a day is still not a good idea.
Apples do weird things to my tummy and spike my blood sugar like crazy. They also give me this weird pain that feels like hunger, but isn't exactly. Very strange.
However, bananas. Ye olde sugar bombs? I love them, and I can eat one and not want to eat again for hours. So strange how different fruits affect us differently. :)
Well, a large apple has about 15g of fructose and only 10mg of vitamin C. That's a pretty terrible ratio, if you ask me. It would not be ideal if it were your only source of vitamin C. On the other hand, it wouldn't really be that bad if it were your only source of fructose and you got additional vitamin C from elsewhere.
It might be worthwhile to at least eat them at times of low liver glycogen so that fewer triglycerides are manufactured. If you ate all 4 for breakfast, it would be better than during times of near-maximal liver glycogen stores.
Are you not eating them because they gave you problems or because someone is telling you they are evil and you shouldn't have them? I'm of the opinion that they are not as bad as some make them out to be. Eat them like Grok did. In season and occasionally. Grok didn't flood himself with sugar year round and that is what you want to copy. I don't see any need to avoid them altogether. I'm sure if Grok ran across an apple tree loaded with delicious apples he ate them. He just couldn't run out to a grocery store and get them every day. I know some say that modern day apples are sweeter, but I say hog wash. Prove it to me. Even if they are sweeter, are they really that bad? I don't think so. Everything in moderation.
