I’ve eaten a whole watermelon and LOVE fruit but hear me out . . .

I know you’re thinking its natural sugar and it’s better than eating a whole box of milk duds. Yes, this is true!

There is so much hype about sugar these days: avoid it all together? limit your intake? fruit sugar is better than Snickers sugar?

Let’s clear it up once and for all.

Is fruit the culprit that has been keeping you from dropping those last few pounds?

I’m breaking it down for you here.

0001-37190112I could eat fruit all day long. I love it. I’m certainly not going to tell you to take fruit out of your diet all together. Fruit is a delight to the senses: fragrant, sweet, colorful, sometimes crispy with a big crunch, and the textures are each unique. Of course, it’s super good for you too!

Although all that is true, I believe in two key fundamentals to the Radiance Method and you getting your ideal body – Education & Connection.

It’s best to be educated on what foods work best for your body and which ones do not. As the food nourishes your body, you’ll feel and look your personal best. The combination of your Education & Connection with self are extremely powerful.

Once you are fully connected, you are able to quickly identify foods that work for you and those that do not.

That being said, let’s get to the point of today’s message to you, shall we;)

So, why is eating too much fruit a bad thing?

Sugar is a carb, and like all things, too much of anything can become a problem or add to one.

What you need to know is this:

• Not all fruits are created equal, especially when it comes to weight loss.

• All carbs turn into sugar and fructose is one of them.

• Too much of anything, if not burned off, and is stored as fat.

• Evening is the worst time to consume fruit. Pay attention to the time of day you are eating fruit. Eating late at night or when sedentary is not ideal for weight loss. The fruit is automatically stored as fat and not used as energy.

• Fruit is used as energy, so the optimal times to eat fruit are in the morning and before workouts.

• Fruit is extremely bloating, especially if you do not regularly consume it.

• Your body will get used to what you give it and create a tolerance. The more tolerant you are to a certain food, the less you will experience symptomatic results from eating them.

Make sense?
