You’re right that it can spike your insulin, it depends on the fruit type and how much you eat. And yes, an apple contains the most fructose from all fruits.
It’s better to say it won’t spike your insulin that much, and it has so many other health benefits that you shouldn’t be afraid of it. Especially red fruits like berries and apples are great, rich of anti-oxidants.
But most people take 1 or 2 pieces, and the benefits from fruit are big so imo it’s not a problem. Besides, if you eat it with protein the insulin will release slower. And especially when you eat it in the beginning of the day (when your insulin sensivity is higher) it’s not a problem.[/quote]
I never said don’t eat fruit, just pointed out that it’s not a “free food” just beacuse it takes a lot to make a difference. Hell I eat 4-6 servings of fruit daily.
You mean I can stop carrying all these watermelons about with me? Cos all bodybuilders eat loads of watermelon…[/quote]
I don’t know, watermelons are kind of heavy. Might be good GPP…
I have had to tell a few of my clients that if they want to reach there goals … eating 2 lb of grapes is not ok just because it is a fruit. Same with nuts, just because it is natural does not mean it is ok to eat without regard.
To me, Glycemic load seems more important than glycemic index when talking about changes in blood glucose as it is serving specific.[/quote]
