Fruit on a Diet: is it helpful for weight loss?

by | May 18, 2021 | What to Eat | 0 comments

in principle and yes and no. depending on what fruit, depending on what stage of the diet.

Why fruit?

That is, fruit is fructose. It works a little differently from classic glucose.

The muscles do not immediately metabolize it. Glucose directly penetrates the blood and immediately provides some urgent energy needs, contained in ordinary sugar or other carbohydrate products.

It goes to the synthesis of glycogen with an excess goes to the synthesis of adipose tissue and so on.

That is, fructose gets into the body, and liver absorbs it immediately. 

Practically does not cause insulin emissions. Therefore, some things there on fructose are prescribed for diabetics.

And there is an opinion that fructose goes then in fat. not really.


Fructose, then, in the same way, can go to the synthesis of glycogen and the synthesis of fat tissue, and everything will, of course, depend on the volume eaten as a whole. If you have a positive arctic balance, that part of the fructose will go into fat.

If it is not present, then some of this fructose will also go to glycogen before providing some energy needs.

It’s just that the path of fructose is slightly different through the liver.

As for the release of insulin, it is significantly different.

And so the fruits on a diet are recommended. Also, fruits have a fairly large amount of fiber (at least in most fruits), such as:

  • apples
  • oranges 

Fiber slows down the absorption of sugars and reduces the glycemic index of fruits even more strongly.

But fruit is sugar the same sugars; it’s the same carbohydrates. If we can use fruits at some early stages of the diet, eat them for breakfast, at lunch, and maybe even after lunch. Then as the carbohydrates decrease, the first thing we reduce is sugar, which is just the same fruit.

And we remove them in the first place, leaving only complex carbohydrates such as buckwheat and brown rice, and so on.

Eat or not fruit on a diet?

From fruits, if something can be left for the diet, it is apples. In general, apples contain a fairly small amount of fructose, also, a large amount of fiber.

But, depending on what stage of the diet you are at, I recommend that you remove all the fruits in general in the last stages. But this is naturally done temporarily while you’re on some rigid low-carb diet. If you take a classic diet at all, in a classic form. When you stick to a specific diet, to be there in good physical shape. Then, of course, yes, fruit is allowed.

Here it is desirable in the first half of the day.

Although in my opinion, it is not very important, especially if we are talking about such fruits as apples, you can also eat an apple somewhere in the evening. The main thing is not to overdo it with the total amount, of course.

Therefore, in general, fruits like apples on a diet, are of course, allowed. But everything will depend on the specific diet. In the last stages of a low-carb diet, I recommend removing all fruits altogether.

But, it is done for a period.

In general, fruits, especially such as apples, are equal to proper nutrition.

It is challenging to eat many apples to get fat from them.

You can lose weight on them and not lose weight if you eat a lot of them. That is if you stick to some simple diet to keep yourself in shape. Then with the correct number of apples, you will hardly gain weight.
