Fruit friends and fruit foe?

Answered on August 19, 2014

I am trying to follow a low carb diet, especially in the mornings before my workout in the late afternoon. However, I still like to eat some fruit in the morning, usually a banana.

Just wondering what fruits are lower in carbs and would be a better option to eat in the morning to limit my carb intake - and which are a bit higher in carbs so would be more suitable for eating after working out.

Thanks

Yeah, I don't think athletes have to worry about fruits.

I'm editing your post because I thought it would be fairer than removing it completely. If you remove the offensive crap, you had something to say.

berries are lower. blue, razz, straw. citrus are higher. bananas seem to be a fav. post WO due to potassium and other goodies. also, you can google glycemic index to find out how carbs will break down.

If you go too low carb, your workouts will suffer. Your body needs glycogen that it gets from carbs and stores in your muscles in order to make it through intense workouts. Check out the book "Paleo for Athletes", it goes in to tons of details about what's optimal to eat before and after workouts (though it's somewhat geared towards endurance athletes). After an intense workout is the best time to eat high glycemic index carbs, for instance.

Low carb? Paleo isn't low carb. You can go easily up to 100-200 grams easily and still lose tons of weight. Of course I can cut to 50 grams a day and lose a ton of weight- mostly water and muscle. But if you want to do paleo right- you need carbs . Just eat a shit load of plaeo approved foods and you'll lose weight and gain muscle. Cut the carbs and welcome to the yo yo syndrome. Slow and steady. Paleo will work wonders.
