IT’S TIME TO FINALLY ADDRESS WHAT ALL THE HYPE IS ABOUT WHEN IT COMES TO OUR DEAR AND DELICIOUS FRIEND: FRUIT.
In the age of the internet, the health and fitness industry (and every other industry) has more “experts” popping up than a game of whack-a-mole. I have come to discover through many nutritional courses with leaders in the industry such as Charles Poliquin, Sebastian Oreb, Daine McDonald and Mark Ottobre just how incredibly in-depth and highly specific the world of nutrition really is. So while the “whack-a-mole experts” intentions may be for the greater good (and I believe they are) unfortunately, with only a surface level understanding of nutrition, broad and blanket statements often cause more harm than good. It’s important to not look at the world of nutrition through a straw if you want to better understand the whole picture. So for those of you with a little bit of weight to move, I’m going to delve deeper into the truth behind fruit; what it really does and how it really affects your health and body composition!
First off, what’s all the hype about? Why are people all of a sudden saying fruit makes you fat? Does it really? Did it still make me fat 10 years ago? To answer this question we need to get a little ‘sciencey’ and break down exactly what nutrients our body is getting from fruit to determine what kind of effect it will have on our body. Fruits have a range of vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients critical to the optimal functioning of our bodies, which funnily enough can and do contribute to fat metabolism!
