====================================

During our last Fit-to-Be Bare contest, I presented academics titled, “What the Hell Should I Eat?” One of the topics that spurred lots of questions (and continues to) is why we ask athletes to limit fruit intake in their quest to change body comp. Our impetus behind this is that fruit is, generally, very dense in sugars (fructose in particular). Fructose is a major contributor to insulin resistance in the liver, increases in triglyceride production and smaller/dense LDL (the bad stuff) and subsequent (delayed onset due to fructose vs. glucose/sucrose) insulin resistance in the muscle tissue. Here is a great story from cardiologist Dr. William Davis on how one of his clients gave himself diabetes with fruit.
