Sorry - apples are 'bags of sugar', fruit is 'candybars'. Harris does not, in general, like fruits.

From Harris' Panu site: "Most modern fruit is just a candy bar from a tree. Go easy on bags of sugar like apples. Stick with berries and avoid watermelon which is pure fructose. Eat in moderation. If you are not trying to lose fat, a few pieces of fruit a day are fine."

Apples have high glycemic loads. If I test my BG after eating an average sized apple, not one of those softball-sized ones, I am over 200 after 1 hour. That's the type of load I;m talking about. It's right up there with them tropical fruits: watermelon, cantaloupes, bananas, etc.

Weird. What makes apples any different than all the other sugar-laden fruit? Also, what kind of apples is he talking about? The sweetness of a conventionally grown apple from a mainstream supermarket is much different than that of a high-quality organic one. The size is different too. One is like 3 times bigger than the other. I eat apples, but I eat the small, high-quality organic ones. They're fine.

Stay away from most fruit except berries and red grapefruit - and only have a half a GF at a time if you really want to...the rest are packed full of sugar and will spike the sh*te outta your blood sugar, causing insulin crash and inflammation (and no weight loss if that is your goal).

As for veges, the more colourful they are, the more sugar and GI load they have. Consider the taste difference between green and red capsicums (peppers). Red is so much sweeter and more flavoursome - because they have a whole lot more sugar!! Same goes for carrots, corn, pumpkins, potatoes, sweet potato, tomato, beetroot etc - all of these will cause a nice big sugar high, followed by a crash.

If you want to have them - make sure that they are only around your training times (before or post workouts) and other wise stick with as much greens as possible (broccoli, spinach, cauliflower, green beans, lettuce, celery etc).

Personally, I've gone right off veges as well - my body was having too much of an insulin response, and now I am pretty much living on protein and fat, with carbs only around my training, and that is only a cup or so of green beans or broccoli usually.

Well, I don't know about worst. But for best, Apricots! Low calorie, low sugar, and one of the lowest fructose fruits. They are pretty much the only fruit I eat other than berries and the occasional grapefruit.

bananas from what I have read are very high in sugars. Personally I would go with berries if you are going to eat any fruit at all. I'll eat a plum every now and then, but berries are my main stay so far as fruits go.

as for vegetables. I stay with the green ones haha :p Broccoli, spinach, kale, seaweed, avocado, etc... thats just my opinion.

Had to bye-bye sugars and starches, so I stay away from all fruits except berries, and then only in really small portions. Same to potatoes and other starchy things and carrots (sugary). Nuts are way too high in omega 6 for me, though I do eat chia seeds (again, small portions - though I find with these you only need small portions).

To put this into a little context, I'm eating for clear skin.
