I've been receiving a lot of questions about fruit. Many of you believe fruit must be demonized.
It fascinates me you eat a boatload of nuts because the irrational rationale you are telling me is "Eat fat to burn fat" and "fruit will make you fat".
First: You can't eat anything to burn fat. When you ingest calories, you suppress fat oxidation. If you wanna burn fat, then STOP FRIGGIN EATING ALL THE DAMN TIME ( ie. fast). Now, If you eat in caloric surplus, then you will inevitably store dietary fat courtesy of the boatload of nuts you ingested.
Second: Nuts contain a boatload of calories! And we all know you won't eat the recommended serving because that's only a small handful. Once you eat one nut, you end up eating a zillion! Be aware that one cup of raw cashews is 960 calories. 1 cup of strawberries is 46 calories. So your irrational rational to eat nuts and avoid berries is NUTS. The same is true for dairy. Just so you know, I eat dairy. I eat berries. I rarely eat nuts. If I want nuts, then I'll factor them into my daily macros.
Third: Calories Count. Accuracy will allow flexibility with your diet. If you track your calories and macros, then you will be able to reach your goals without having to demonize or obsess over food.
Fourth: It wasn't until I embarked on Intermittent Fasting & Flexible Dieting that I was able to satisfy my hunger and maintain my lean body 365 days a year WITH EASE.
