    Apples and bananas during cutting


    So, my question is simple. Are apples and or bananas a good or bad thing while trying to lose bodyfat? I love them both, but they seem like sugar rich fruits.

    I personally incorporate a few servings of fruit a day when I'm cutting. Typically less on rest days.

    Apples are a great energy source, as bananas will provide you glycogen to repair your muscles after a workout! As long as you are not eating 4 at a time, you'll be fine!

    Now with my workout being first thing in the morning, I like to take my pre on an empty stomach. Will eating an apple cut back on the effectiveness of the pre. I have been battling or fighting myself if to or not to eat before workout.... i get up at 445ish and workout starts at 530am

    They are fine in my opinion

    Maybe getting for a show fructose can possibly slow fat loss a tiny winy bit but I don't think its a big difference. Ronnie Coleman ate a piece of fruit a day and Dorian Yates said a piece of fruit is fine getting ready for a show and they are extreme dieting so my opinion go ahead and eat a couple pieces of fruit a day
