    No, no no. Sorry if anyone got the wrong idea! Eat your fruits! I'm just saying that some people eat an excessive amount of the extremely sugary fruits, and that you should try adding more veggies into your diet! Not saying stop eating fruit! Fruits give you vitamins that are rarely so well packed any where else.

    Sorry if anyone thought I was saying to stop eating fruits.

    Sorry, now that I look at that, it came out wrong.

Don't replace your fruits with veggies, ADD veggies to your diet on TOP of the fruit. Replace other things, NOT fruit.

    This is what I was trying to say. Don't you hate it when you post something, and realize that it wasn't quite what you meant?

    Good! I thought that must be it but some people will read something on the internet and jump on it before checking facts just wanted to make sure it was clarified!

    The sugar in fruits is not processed, so don't worry about that, your body has to work to process the sugar in them, get away from that Aitkins way of thinking.

    Whatever you do, when you are competeing, do not try to cut carbs! Other, less active and stressful times are the times to do that. Your body needs the quick acting carbs during competition!

    Sorry for the confusion of that second post, WB. We were actually just talking about that. I said it wrong, what I meant was: eat more veggies. I didn't mean for it come across as eat less fruit

    Yep. Cutting out carbs will put you into ketosis, which is not an energetic state. However, all carbs you consume should be in the form of whole grains and consume more protein than carbs. That is how to feed your muscles and keep energy levels fueled.
