Ideal Times To Have Fruit

Untitled

To support healthy blood sugar levels and ideal insulin sensitivity, it's helpful to save fruit consumption for just before or during workouts or just after completing  a workout.  The idea is to ingest healthy fructose along with naturally occurring fiber and micronutrients to serve as fuel during exercise or to help replenish muscles that are primed to soak up natural sugars from the bloodstream.

Kiwi offers an abundance of vitamin C and fiber, and seems to have a protective effect on insulin sensitivity - pubmed has a number of studies on this effect.

Watermelon’s abundance of water, potassium, and variety of antioxidants and amino acids makes it ideal for replenishing depleted muscle cells and promoting healthy recovery of fatigued tissues.
