Fruits are fine, in moderation. The best would probably be berries, due to the fact that they are lower in carbs/fructose sugars than Other Fruits.

Apples, Blueberries, Grapefruit, Peaches, and Strawberries can create an excellent thermogenic effect. These are the best to use. I would opt for them earlier in the day also.

Although all fruits have a relatively low glycemic effect, some vary rather significantly in their GI, probably because of the fructose:glucose ratio and the amount of fiber contained within the fruit. Below are just a few fruits that can be consumed and what times are best to consume them:


Early in the day
Apples
Strawberries
Oranges
Grapefruits
Cherries
Pears

Later in the day (after 6pm) and possibly post-workout
Grapes
Bananas*
Peaches
Pineapple
Dates
Figs*

*Because of higher tryptophan levels, these may be helpful in inducing sleep.

The fruits consumed earlier in the day generally have a low GI (below 50) as to keep blood glucose at a more even level. The fruits labeled for use after 6pm, or after a workout, generally have a higher GI (around 70 or more) in order to rapidly restore glycogen levels and induce a state of sleepiness. This is especially true in the case of bananas and figs.
