Does Fruit Make You Fat
No one thing: No single item will make you fat. It might be that some foods have more wasted calories compared to nutrition.

Too much might.: Whenever we make a given fruit easier to ingest, such as when we drink blueberry juice as opposed to eat actual blueberries, the convenience leads to overdoing it. I'd imagine that calorie-wise you're taking in more in the juice than you would in the actual fruit if you were just eating blueberries. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
People say you should eat 3-5 servings of fruit a day, what if I eat way more than this? Does fruit make you fat?
Weight loss: If you have adipose tissue that you'd like to lose then consider an increase in cardio and a balanced diet. However, do not always do the same exercise or you will increase your risks for stress injuries. Mix things up with running, biking, swimming, or circuit training.

The idea behind: protein supplements is that, when combined with weight training, aerobic training and calorie restriction, they help reduce body fat and develop quality muscle mass.

Do sweet potatoes make you absorb carbohydrates better I heard they make you respond to insulin better also are they known as fat burners I eat 2 aday?
Misinformed?: Sweet potatoes are not a healthy food. They are just a bit less dangerous as 'sugar' calories than white potatoes. Complex carbohydrates are still 100% sugar calories. They are just not quite a glycemic as simple sugar or 'white' carbohydrates. Sweet potatoes are not fat burners. They do not make you absorb carbohydrates better. Why would one want to absorb sugar 'better'? ...Read more

Does fruit do anything when looking to gain muscle? I drink a lot of those nakéd smoothies, but fruit doesn't help to build muscle does it?
Balance: You need a balanced diet to build muscle. Fruit supplies carbs (which you need), vit c, fluids, and fiber, at a minimum. Yes, you need protein, which body builders often do to excess (your body can only use so much).

Does overcooking vegetables make them lose their nutritional value? Can you still get some benefit from them if you eat fruit too?
Nutrients in Vegetables: There is no single best to answer to this question. It depends on which vegetable and which nutrients you're talking about. Generally vegetables pack the most nutrients when they are fresh, not overcooked, and not over boiled (for water-soluble nutrients). It is perfectly OK to eat vegetables and fruit at the same time. You will still absorb the nutrients from both. Enjoy! ...Read more
Not a disease: Being thin is not a disease.
