    Is fruit a fast burning carb, or slow?

    I'm looking for a good snack in between meals and I've been eating nuts and fruit. I was wondering if this was a good idea because i am unsure if fruit is a fast or slow burning carb. Is fruit a fast or slow burning carb?

    Fruits are slow burning carbs, generally fruits are pretty juicy and it's difficult to get them to light up and burn with standard heat sources.

    Just eat the fruit and stop worrying about the "speed" of the carb. It makes no difference to overall body composition. What does matter is overall caloric intake for body weight and macronutrient consumption for body composition. Please refer to the stickies for more info.

    Take a variety of fruit and toss them in the fireplace. Record times it takes for each to burn.

    (Maks sure you do it with adult supervision around)

    Well yes, basically.

    Fruits are now zero points according to the new Weight Watcher's system, meaning you can get all of your daily carbs in from eating fruit @ zero calories.

    Wow. Haha! Thanks for the replies everyone. I guess I'll treat fruit as both slow and fast then, right? Good postworkout recovery, and between meals to keep my metabolism revved?

    inb4youmissthepoint...wait, too late.


    Stop referring to the SPEED of food. It DOES NOT MATTER. Meal frequency is also a myth, no need to eat several times a day, it doesn't "rev up" your metabolism.

    Edit: Please read the stickies. Do me the favor? Kthanks.

    I put bananas on the grill a few weeks ago, took forever to get black grill marks, lol.

    The only reason I see that the digestion rate of the fruit would matter is for diabetics/hypoglycemics. I know personally, I can not eat "fast" digesting carbs pwo without some type of negative reaction.

    If you do not have these type of issues, do not worry about it.

    Grilled bananas sound interesting.

    I have grilled peaches with brown sugar and eaten them with vanilla ice-cream. The outcome was magic.

    Fruit in actual fact is less than ideal as a post work out carb source seeing as fructose refills liver glycogen primarily (yes I'm aware there are other sugars in fruit). To anyone in this thread confused: post work out nutrition is insignificant in the grand scheme of things. Daily nutrition and hence hitting your macro nutrient goals whilst ensuring micro nutrient sufficiency will always be decisive with regards to body composition.

    Dear god I can't believe no one has commented on this. The calories should really be counted in everything, especially fruit. Fruit can add up waaaay easier than vegetables can. Avocados especially have a lot of fat.

    If you eat avocados without counting calories, you are running a big risk here IMO.

    Grilled fruits are excellent. That's pretty much the only useful thing to draw from this thread.

    That sounds really good.

    For the bananas, I split them longways and laid them on the grill with the peel still on, peel side up. I tried it without the peel and they fall all apart when you try to pick them up off the grill. I imagine they would be good with some honey and ice cream.

    I will try your peach idea next time I fire the grill up.
    There is no spoon.

    The speed of the carb burn is absolulty important and calorie counting has proven to be less effective when trying to achieve lean body mass. Depending on the level of activity as well as what your trying to achieve calorie requirments vary drastically. not to mention that you can achieve the same amount of calories from a McDonald's big mac as a you can a healthy chicken breast dinner which would you argue is healthier? The chicken dinner served with leafy greens and a side of beans contains a high number of complex carbohydrates AKA slow burning which will keep you full for longer and provide a consitant blood sugar level (no spike in insuline will result in less of the carbohydrates being stored as fat as well) aka a consistant level of energy. To answer the original question it depends on the fruit, the majority of fruit is high in fiber making the carbohydrates complex A.K.A slow burning however some fruits are faster burning such as bananas (high in protein though so also beneficial depending on the situation). hope this helped.
