    Default The fruits dillema

    The problem with fructose arises when the liver glycogen levels are full. At this point, fructose gets converted to fat and that helps to increase the size of the fat cells. Since we aren't equipped with fuel gauges to tell us how full our livers are, many bodybuilders opt for avoiding fruit all together. But such extreme measures are not necessary. There are actually a few times when fruit is not only okay?it's actually helpful.
    What do you think about this?

    People need to care more about the fructose added in a lot of process food then natural fruits, whole fruits in normal quantities are healthy, it's a good source of antioxydants, fibers, vitamins, etc... I stay away from juice, even 100% natural because you can ingest the fructose/glucose of many fruits at once in a simple serving, not only it's absorbed much faster (insulogenic) but you don't get the fibers and as much antioxydants, vitamins, etc.. as the whole fruit itself.
