Time your carbs, and go easy on fruit.
Certain fruits, such as apples and pears, are naturally sweeter with a higher fructose content. In addition, farmers have bred these fruits to be bigger and contain more sugar than they would ever have in the wild. If weight loss is your goal, you’ll be best off sticking with lower sugar fruits such as berries, which are also loaded with fiber and offer the most antioxidants for the buck. We’d also recommend avoiding snacking on fruit as much as possible during the day. Stick to eating more fruit and carbs in the hours post-workout, when your body is screaming for nutrients and is more likely to shuttle those sugars and carbs into your muscles instead of storing them as fat.
