    Fruits after workout..

    I'm trying to lose weight, and every night I run for a while on the treadmill and then do weight training for about an hour. My question is: Is it okay to be eating a small bowl of fruit after I workout? (chopped kiwi, melon, pear, grapes) Will it affect my weight loss, or is it okay?

    Fructose raises blood sugar levels very slowly, and doesn't replenish glycogen stores well. If you opt for a fruit, chose one with higher glucose then fructose. Again, not a big fan...

    Who's gonna say that??? ****, protein can replenish glycogen stores...fructose can too, it's just more work than for good ole glucose.

    Fruit is best kept away from PW, eat it an hour later with a meal. For BBing, you should do anything for more than one hour...so run, eat something then weight train later.

    Bkman4, don't worry bro, we still love you

    To set the record straight with fructose PWO, please check out this article Bignbuff provided:

    Referring to the three ways the body uses glucose, assuming that blood glucose levels are adequate, the glucose will then be stored as glycogen. Muscle does not have the necessary enzymes to synthesize fructose into glycogen; therefore the liver converts this fructose into liver glycogen. It would only take three, 8-ounce glasses of orange juice to fully replenish liver glycogen stores. Since the liver is responsible for supplying energy to the entire body, once its stores are full, a rate limiting enzyme in glucose metabolism, which is responsible for signaling the body to store glucose as glycogen or convert it to fat (phosphofructokinase), signals the body that all stores are full. If the glycogen stores are signaled as full, then the third way our body uses excess glucose is to convert it to fatty acids and store as adipose tissue. In essence, fruit sugar is easily converted to fat.

    Thanks swas...good post.

    To the last sentence: yes fructose is "easily" turned into fat, but that is no reason to avoid fruits, just fruit juice. The fiber in fruit slows fructose absorbtion even though there is very little fructose in most fruit anyway. Either way there are so many things in fruit that are beneficial to us that we know about, and plenty we dont', that the benefits far outweigh the chance at storage.

    yep, fruits are chocked full of antioxidents, try and stick w/ the high fiber fruits, although most fruit is good, rasberries, strawberries, blueberries among the highest in fiber.. you deduct the amount of fiber from total carb count.
