I read a Nerd Fitness article  and there is good stuff.

Most of fruits comes from trees, it’s for this reason they’re healthy foods. But they’re also composed of sugar and sugar is a bad new for our body. Let’s see.

Fruits and vegetables are planet’s plants that are full of vitamins, minerals, antioxidant and even more.

Fruits are also composed of sugar that is why we’ll enter in the sugar’s science.

A fruit can have a combination of different sugar’s type :e sucre :

  • Fructose

  • Glucose

  • Sucrose (a combination of fructose and glucose)

This combination of sugar that grow with the fruit have a different effect in our body than processed sugar and high-fructose corn syrup.

The difference is fruit’s sugar has fibers and these fibers help our body to slow absorption of sugar in our blood system .

Fruits have a lot of things good for our body and eat them for snack or before a training is excellent.

Fruits can also be part of our healthy meals each day.

Caution

When a person changes diet, an old unhealthy diet with a lot of calories and sugar for a new healthy diet with a lot of proteins and plants, this person may feel lost. Since our bodies have been sugar-dependent easily because of food industry, we must be careful.

When we want sugar, we should think to a fruit rather than a candy. By this way, we give a signal to our brain « Yeah sugar ».

On the other hand to not slow down your weight loss process, don’t eat more than 1000 calories of fruits per day. Burn more calories than you consume is the most important part to lose weight.

Since than food industry put a ton of sugar in fruits, we must be careful to not become sugar addicts. Eat fruits in moderation.

Fruit juice

I show you the scam ! It’s sugar water (apple juice, orange juice, grape juice, etc.). When fruits are squeezed in factories, there is all sugars but not fibers. And they add preservatives, another type of sugar for flavor and a lot of others ingredients. The scam is that food industry try to make us believe that is healthy fruit juices.

Here, 4 fruit juices, the most popular with the typical amount of sugar inside :

  • Orange juice – 21g of sugar
  • Apple juice – 28g of sugar
  • Cranberry juice – 37g of sugar
  • Grap juice – 38g of sugar

Make a comparison, a 33cl (12oz) of Coke contains 49g of sugar. These numbers are interesting, right ? Do you see the scam ?

Dried fruits

Dried fruits keep healthy vitamins and healthy minerals from fresh fruits and it’s very convenient to carry. It’s convenient for snacks but you have to eat if really with moderation.

We can eat a huge amount of dried fruits because they’re dehydrated then they take less space in the stomac than fresh fruits. The results is than we can have an overconsumption of sugar and calories very quickly.

A tiny handful (a small quarter of cup) of dried grape = 130 calories and 30g of sugar.

Tips

Eat dried fruits to a limited amount and avoid fruit juice unless you squeeze it yourself.

If you’re healthy, continue to eat fruits like you do if it works.

If it’s hard to lose weight and you eat a lot of fruits in your diet, increase your consumption of healthy lipid, protein, vegetable and decrease your consumption of fruits.

If you want to lose weight, eat real fruits in moderation and rarely dried fruits and canned fruits.

I know you’re smart then appreciate fruits and be aware of what you eat.

What is your favorite fruit and what is the fruit you eat in large quantities easily ?

Your Life Reflects Your Thoughts

thoughts

If you have a real vision, a real dream, cultivates it, put it in your heart, in your mind, be obsessed with it. You are your thoughts. In your life, good things don’t happen because you’re a good person, it happens because you wanted in a conscious or unconscious way. Your life is a manifestation of your thoughts. When you’re obsessed, when you think only about that, you attract it in your life. When you think to be happy, you’re happy, test.

If your vision or your dream is a career in the fitness industry, be obsessed with it. Includes people in your dream, this is what I tell people who want to be part of my team : « Listen, if your vision or your dream doesn’t include helping others, your vision is too small. I’m not interested ». There are people who have a phenomenal physics, it’s the world class but all they do, it’s make selfies to show their abs and that’s not interests me.

I don’t want that new generations see these people and say this is what is being a man or a woman, show abs all day. It doesn’t mean anything, a homeless person can have abs. Abs aren’t a goal to have a healthy body but on Instagram people make believe anything.

People like Instagram with filters, everyone thinks it’s raw pictures. The person took the photo the day after the competition and displays it on Instagram 6 months later and when you see the person in real life, it’s not quite the same.

Be obsessed with your goals, your dreams to help people and not by something that makes you look cool. Everyone is beautiful, no one is more beautiful than another, it’s subjective and it’s not important. What you have in your head and in your heart, that’s what is really important. I’m a pessimistic person because sometimes I look people and I say : « Why are you doing this, tell him something to help ? ».

I guess when you think fitness industry, everything that’s inside is healthy but the truth is that in many ways it’s unhealthy, especially mentally. It’s like the guy’s story who a few days after the competition had taken diuretic for his rendez-vous with a girl (everytime I think back, I tell myself that it’s not possible), it’s sad.

Sometimes I drink Coke, beer, rum, I eat biscuits but I’m trying to eat healthy as much as possible. You never see me on Instragram with a huge pizza because I don’t want a person sees this photo and say : « Ah I also have a slow metabolism, I can do the same ». I want people to be responsible for contents they place. I do it as often as possible to give to people great information.

Be obsessed with your dreams and you attract them in your life
