    Sugar - fruits & greek yogurt on a cut?

    Hey ya'll,

    Q: Will eating fruits and 0% plain greek yogurt be harmful to a cutting diet?
    I would like to lean out as much as much as possible, while making "newbie gains", before I try to bulk in autumn. However, I cannot decide whether or not to cut fruit out of my diet. I read that 1-2 servings of fruit per day (such as an apple or banana pre-workout or blueberries) is beneficial for energy and antioxidants. Yet some people say to cut fruits due to the sugar content. Also, I was considering adding 0% plain greek yogurt to my diet for the protein. The lowest sugar brand I could find has 18g protein and 7g sugar per 6oz.

    So, any opinions on fruits and greek yogurt? What do the rest of you ladies do while on a cut? Thanks!

    I ate greek yogurt and fruit every day of my cut and lost weight fine. I am a greek yogurt addict. In fact, I may have even eaten them twice a day, oh no, or even some naughtier foods with sugar added that wasn't just naturally occuring. As long as they fit in your macros and cals, no problem.

    Get it out of your head that sugar is bad. It's not. Eating sugar will not inhibit your weight loss. There are only two reasons to be concerned about your sugar intake: If you have problems with dental hygiene or diabetes.

    i did keto for awhile and saw no difference when i didnt have carbs, so keep the fruit and oats, etc. if youre concerned about carbs making you fat then cut them off by the afternoon hours and you should have nothing to worry about

    Sorry mike, its not carbs in the afternoon that makes us fat...its too many calories whether they be morning noon or middle of the night.

    But otherwise you're right on.

    OP, a little off topic here, I apologize ...

    Are your stats correct? If so, you may benefit more from eating at maintenance calorie levels, lifting heavy, and thereby doing a "recomp" rather than trying to lean out more. I didn't check your pics but unless you've got a lot of muscle already, leaning out further may just make you look emaciated. Just a friendly suggestion

    Thanks for the information, everyone. It's encouraging to hear that I won't have to drop fruit from my diet. I'll track my progress and adjust if needed.

    Summertown, Yes. I'm currently 5'4'' and 105lbs. Here is my current plan:
    * 1.3k-1.4k calories per day
    * Daily macros: 150-160g protein/35-45g fat/60-100ish g carbs
    * lifting 3-4x per week (heavy weight, 8-10 reps)
    * HIIT running 2-3x per week (15-20min)

    Do you think I'm eating too few calories? Or should I change anything up? I think my maintenance was estimated at 1.7-1.8k calories per day, but it could be higher with the HIIT training.

    You're worried about fruit and yogurt being harmful on a cutting diet. What's more harmful is the fact that you're 5'4", 105 lbs and cutting.

    It's clear that you constantly undereat, because you're seriously underweight.

    Increase your calories or continue your path of unhealthy...the choice is yours...

    I've only just started "clean eating" ... I eat all the time honestly. It's just that, I've been big into distance running since I started college. Whatever I eat always gets burned off no matter how much I stuff my face. I don't have an eating or body-image problem

    How many calories would you recommend I be eating per day then? (And if I'm going to be eating more, what should my new macros look like?)... *edit* and do green vegetables like spinach and broccoli go towards the daily calorie count?

    You don't NEED to 'eat clean'. Eat a healthy, well balanced diet INCLUDING 'not-clean' foods. You'll save your sanity AND get results, too.

    Read the threads linked in this post: http://forum.bodybuilding.com/showth...hp?t=122789461

    And you can't seriously be 'eating all the time' and eating the macro's you posted.

    How many calories would you recommend I be eating per day then? (And if I'm going to be eating more, what should my new macros look like?)...
    Start here http://forum.bodybuilding.com/showth...hp?t=121703921
    There is an entire thread DEDICATED to the topic.
    Help yourself do this and spend some time calculating what you REALLY need out.

    *edit* and do green vegetables like spinach and broccoli go towards the daily calorie count?
    Depends. Some people count them, some people don't.
    What matters is what YOU do consistently - because regardless of the TRUE numbers of your intake - what you need to assess is:
    1. your results
    and
    2. how you can change what you eat to better these results

    At this weight you should be bulking.
    I eat a ton of fruit on a cut - helps me with satiety.
    Greek yogurt is an everyday staple - whether I'm cutting, bulking or maintaining.

    I think Greek yogurt is actually a pretty optimal food for cutting. High in protein, low in carbs, fat free... try to stick with the plain, you can add a little splenda if you don't like it entirely plain. The sugar isnt the normal cane sugar which has fructose and glucose, but it milk sugar, which has lactose and no fructose... much better. Fruit is great in moderation, too; tryh to stick to the lower calorie but micronutrient dense and water packed fruit.

    Lol.

    I've heard this one before, from every single girl when I was at school.


    When they're feeling self-conscious about their weight:

    'Oh but I only had a piece of bread and an apple today!'


    When someone says they're undereating and to skinny:

    'Oh but I eat all the time! Honestly I do!'

    LOL, I should videotape myself once and post it here to see what I mean by eating.
    Girls, please, stop being so scared of food.
    Food is nutritious, food is good, it helps to build muscles, it gives energy. It's OK to enjoy food, it doesn't necessarily have to be purely fuel.

    Honestly, this is one of the main reasons why I am not posting much in the female section anymore.

    Yup.

    Yeah I'm getting tired of the teen section, will probably move to Powerlifting section soonish with some of the other posters.


    Also maybe it's just me, but the wonderful picture I just posted now seems to say:

    Some of the smarter teens are posting in Nutrition now.
    It's a pleasure to read them, gives me hope - since I'm a mother of a boy.

    You need to be eating at least 2000 cals. I suspect your maintenance will be higher, but that's a starting point. Losing any more weight with your stats will do nothing for you. Get your minimums in protein and good fats. From there fill your cals with lots of carbs and some extra fat. Maybe a tad more protein. Don't get fixated on a certain macro breakdown. See how it falls out based on what you like to eat and how you feel.

    OP, you stats are more or less like mine (5'3", 99 lb), and I wouldn't recommend cutting Greek yogurt or fruit out of your diet. Both are good, healthy and nutritive.
    You're not going to get 'fat' because of the fruit! In fact, you [we] don't have to worry about putting on some weight. Raise your calories intake to your real maintenance level (or above if you plan to bulk), watch the amount of protein and good fats/day you need and don't worry about the carbs.
    Part of my diet are 1 lit milk, 250 ml yogurt and 5 pieces of fruit every day and it has never been a problem.

    I thank everyone for the advice and/or concern. I guess that I've been too concerned about getting a clean diet "right" when I should be more concerned about just eating more and healthier in general. However, I'm not "scared" of food and I don't avoid it--it's rude to make assumptions about people. I love eating but I've been a god-damn distance /RUNNER/ for two years ... I can burn a good 2.5k+ calories on my long runs. 13+ miles on a single run is normal for me, especially on weekends. So when I'm running, I do eat a ton.

    I've decided to try weight lifting though, because I enjoy trying new things! Therefore, I'm not going to be doing as much running. I'm used to just eating whatever I want and as much of it as I want. (I'm used to eating ice cream and heavy pasta dishes every day, no joke). BUT, If I stop running so much, I thought that I needed to monitor what and how much I'm eating. That's why I'm being overly concerned about the diet thing. Trying to switch from a totally "uncontrolled sh*t-storm of food" diet that I used to while running to a diet designed for weight lifting has been a challenge for me. And I'm still trying to figure it out.

    And, I'm hearing you guys out: continue to eat more, keep it balanced...
    1.8-2k calories to start?
    160-170g protein
    60-80g fat
    300-ish g carbs?

    Macros not so important... it's more about eating enough, getting adequate fats and protein ... and tracking my progress. I think I get it now. Thank you again for the advice and help, everyone.

    agreed on all 3. AND, agree with what kimm, EL, and others are suggesting.
