Sorry I am FULL of questions today... I use to eat a lot of apples -- 4+ a day. It wd fill me up --now that I stopped eating apples due to fructose issues.. when i eat other fiber rich foods -- don't fill me up at all.

Yes, I can, Meredith! Hmm...I definitely want to explore this avenue of thought. I never even thought to implicate the pectin before you guys chimed in. Thank you! :)

Can you tolerate cooked apples? Like in applesauce. Raw apples bloat me belly, but if I cook them down it's all good. I think it must break down the pectin? Mayhaps. I dunno, but it works for me.

Hi Danielle. Yes maybe someday we can meet. I am not opposed to that. Hey nice pic of you and AV! I put new pictures on the Share your Paleo Before and After thread. My face is on the pictures on the wall.

Ditto. Eating an apple if I'm a bit peckish is almost always counterproductive for me.

A lot of people eat apples when they aren't ripe. Heck, they taste good when they aren't ripe. But unripe fruit also contains a lot pectin. Apples in the store during the off-season usually need a week or so of ripening before they are edible.

That makes sense, Jack. I used to enjoy those sickly-sweet spotted brown bananas, but since adopting a Paleo diet, I now I prefer the ones that still have a bit of green on them. :)

@Jack Kronk -- I use to get this gas pain on my right side--upper . Again I thot it was just way too much acid in my system (I love me my coffee!) But after reading somewhere on the internet (can't remember where) it sounded just like fructose intolerence-- once I stopped the apples the pain went away

banana is starchy in addition to it's fructose. that's why it fills up better than an apple. and if you get an unripe banana, it's even more starchy.

apples are not anti-paleo. and eating multiple apples per day is not "horrendous." everyone stay calm.

Eating an apple always leaves me hungry. I've never tried eating 4! I would hope I wouldn't be hungry after that many. I believe that protein is what satiates hunger and not fiber rich foods.

Apples do weird things to my tummy and spike my blood sugar like crazy. They also give me this weird pain that feels like hunger, but isn't exactly. Very strange.

However, bananas. Ye olde sugar bombs? I love them, and I can eat one and not want to eat again for hours. So strange how different fruits affect us differently. :)

KL,

Just cause it fills you up, doesn't mean it's good, if that's what you're diggin at. Actually I'm not really sure what you're diggin at. 4+ apples per day is horrendous. So I'm glad you stopped doing that. Anyway I think if you eat anything the size of an apple 4 times a day, that it would fill you up. 4 apples a day is still not a good idea.

Are you not eating them because they gave you problems or because someone is telling you they are evil and you shouldn't have them? I'm of the opinion that they are not as bad as some make them out to be. Eat them like Grok did. In season and occasionally. Grok didn't flood himself with sugar year round and that is what you want to copy. I don't see any need to avoid them altogether. I'm sure if Grok ran across an apple tree loaded with delicious apples he ate them. He just couldn't run out to a grocery store and get them every day. I know some say that modern day apples are sweeter, but I say hog wash. Prove it to me. Even if they are sweeter, are they really that bad? I don't think so. Everything in moderation.

Well, a large apple has about 15g of fructose and only 10mg of vitamin C. That's a pretty terrible ratio, if you ask me. It would not be ideal if it were your only source of vitamin C. On the other hand, it wouldn't really be that bad if it were your only source of fructose and you got additional vitamin C from elsewhere.

It might be worthwhile to at least eat them at times of low liver glycogen so that fewer triglycerides are manufactured. If you ate all 4 for breakfast, it would be better than during times of near-maximal liver glycogen stores.

It's possible it wasn't the fiber that was making you feel full.

Fats are satiating. Try adding a few nuts or other fat foods to your fiber foods.
