What are positive and negative effects when you mix an over average amount of fruit (let's say one meal a day/500 calories) with a SAD?
For example what effects would it have on:
2) body fat
5) muscle mass
Would you recommend this to a SADler? And which meal would you replace (breakfest, lunch, dinner)?
the use of fruit is usually to post for a photo that will be slapped on the packaging but thats where its involvement ends - no fruit inside just refined sugars, artificial colourings, flavourings and GMO animal products usually.
Thanks for your reply! But that isnt really/at all answering my question, I guess!
Not gonna aswer any of these either. Just consider that with good things like fruit, a lil bit of something is better than a whole lot of nothing.
It could negatively affect candida and bloodsugar/diabetes. 500 calories is much more fruit than most SADers eat. Combining high fruit/high fat is bad news.
Weight, body fat, muscle mass, I can't see how those would be significantly affected. If anything it would assist with weight loss because perhaps the carbs would replace calories that would otherwise be from fat.
On average, I don't think it will affect most people in good health negatively much. Only if they have severe diabetes. Breakfast would be best. There are people on standard omnivore type diets who do eat lots of fruit especially the tropical permaculture guys .
Thanks a lot for your answers!
Does anybody know about scientific sources that deal with this topic?
