Diet Killers Series: Boot the Fruit

Bodybuilding.com shared some tips on what could be sabotaging your diet and bikini bod!

Really, Bodybuilding said it perfectly, so I’ll quote:

This one may seem strange because they’re part of the food pyramid, right? It’s true, fruits do have vitamins and minerals, but they also contain a lot of natural sugars. You don’t want that extra sugar because your body should be focusing on the complex carbs you eat and the body fat you already have for energy.

Adding another source of energy will make it harder to shed those pounds. You’re dieting, so your pyramid looks a lot different than King Tut’s or the USDA’s.

Personally, I have a tiny amount of fruit (a few berries) in my greek yogurt as my pre-workout meal, but other than that fruit in my mind is a cheat-treat!  I have met so many people who get fruit confused with health foods. Yeah, it’s natural sugar, but it’s still sugar! 😀

Polk-a-dot-bikini time ladies! Trim out some of the fruit in your life and let’s press on!
