In general... correct me if I am wrong... which I am pretty sure I am... lifting light weights for more reps and less sets makes toned muscles and lifting heavier weights for less reps, but with more sets makes more sculpted muscles right?

Hi CarrieAnn,

I have found lifting in the afternoon the best for lifting heavy and with a lot of energy. I find if I am able to eat most of my calories in the morning and at lunch I have a better workout in the afternoon.

For whatever reason, I don't lift well if I've had smoothies before hand (I'm sure one of the more experienced 'Fruit Lifters' could offer their opinion on this). I prefer eating whole fruits that have good water content like apples or oranges before a workout works better for me.

I hope this helps and would be interested to hear what you have been finding with your diet and workouts.

Cheers,

Jason

Hello All!  I am new to this group and looking forward to learning as much as I can about this lifestyle and how it works with my training routines.  I just want to make sure that I constantly have the fuel in me to keep lifting heavy and breaking my own personal bests. If you have any advice about fueling up to lift heavy, please fill me in!

@Markalark
Fruits, my personal favorites-> (bananas, dates, pineapple, watermelon, apples, and oranges) and greens, my personal favorites-> (spinach, kale, bok choy, and broccoli). I also occasionally have potatoes and black rice. 
IMO adequate calories and enough rest will do it regardless of what specific foods you eat.

@Chris Heyman
I tried doing floor presses with my barbell but chickened out when the stand I had the bar on started to wiggle. I just do plyo push ups and dips between some barrels I have in my yard.

@peachesandrice

Yoga is awesome! I need to start doing it again, I just felt so good after it. I'll throw in a session or two per week and see how that works out.

@TheFruitWarrior

I'm always hungry too. It seems that no matter how much raw fruit and veggies I eat I can't stay full for more than 2 hours. If I eat raw all day I can consume an upward of 5000 calories (and still be a little hungry) but if I have a cooked vegan meal in the afternoon I feel good with 3000 calories. I have daily weight fluctuations, probably due to water retention? Lets say I eat 100% raw fruits and veggies, I'll wake up around 2-3lbs lighter than usual. With cooked food for my last meal, I will wake up at my "normal" weight. Not sure how that works out seeing how I eat more calories eating raw, probably does have to do with digestion and absorbtion.

@William Goering

Thanks for that, good to know!

@Kelly

Well if you are feeling good and seeing progress then thats what counts.

Hey Will,

I am so happy to hear that!  Thank-you for the input.

Comment by William Goering on June 7, 2013 at 12:11am
You will adapt after a while. Being full on fruit and salad is little diffrent than potatoes and all that heavy stuff
