You may even sweat, get tunnel vision and feel like you need to eat something right away. This could result from blood sugar levels being out of their normal range.
Fruit is NOT a free food. It must be factored into Carb macros and realize that fructose can cause insulin levels to spike, the body doesn't burn its own fat while insulin levels are elevated. 1 fruit a day limited to bananas, apples or berries and an occasional orange. With bananas, I limit the intake to before or after workout however, when I start competition prep I will need to limit to no more than 3 X a week and eventually eliminate bananas for fat loss to get lean.
