Fat Loss and Nutrition Myth
Fruit Makes You Fat
Is it just me or is this the crazzyiest myth you have ever herd in the weight loss industry. I guess I can see where they are coming from with all the carb talk. After all fruits are sweet because of natural sugars, which is a simple carb.
But come on…
fruit makes you fat!
No one way! I repeat, NO ONE will ever get fat because they have eaten too much fruit. So go ahead and have some more.
Fruit contains sugar and lots of fiber as well as a host of other good for you things.
The fiber and water in the fruit will fill you up with limited calories. See for yourself.
The fruit calorie chart below lists some of our favorite fruits:
- 1 cup of cherries = 75 calories
- 1 medium apple = 75 calories
- 1 medium banana = 100 calories
- 1 cup blueberries = 80 calories
- 1 date = 25 calories
- 1 grapefruit = 80-100 calories
- 1 orange = 60 calories
- 1 peach = 40 calories
- 1 cup pineapple = 65 calories
- 1 cup strawberries = 45 calories
- 1 cup watermelon = 50 calories
To help debunk this myth diet and fat loss myth think of this…
If you were to sit down and eat all this fruit in on sitting that would only total about 750 calories. Now compare that to foods we tend to eat on a regular basis…
the foods that DO make us fat.
- Grande Iced Caffe Mocha = 200 calories
- Grande Caramel Frappuccino = 430 calories
- Starbucks Low Fat Blueberry Muffin = 430 calories
- Plain Bagel = 300 calories
It is not unusual to go to a meeting or stop on your way to work and have a low fat muffin and a frappuccino. It does not look like much but that is 860 calories.
And all void of nutritional value.
If you compare the two there really is no need to worry about getting fat eating fruit and destroying your diet efforts.
As the myth busters would say, This myth is Busted!
The truth is that fruit is healthy for you and fills you up and helps you LOSE fat.

This is not true. However, “delicious” is a subjective term, right?
So what I might think is awesome (natural peanut butter sandwiches on flax bread with blueberries), might be your idea of boredom.
You do not have to give up your favorite foods completely when you are on a fat loss program.
Now I’m not going to lie and say you can eat whatever you want, and however much you want, every meal and every day.
You just need to harness the power of portion control and improve the overall quality of your diet, and you’ll still be able to get a lean and sexy body this summer with your favorite foods.
So keep your nutrition SIMPLE. Focus on whole, natural foods and limit high-calorie, high-sugar foods to just a couple of treats per week. Combine that with your favorite Turbulence Training workouts and you’ll lose fat fast.
