Does Fruit Make You Fat?

In addition to many valuable vitamins and nutrients, fruit also contains fructose. This is suspected of being deposited on the abdomen in the form of fat deposits when consumed excessively. Fruit is said to make you fat. However, this is only the case if you eat a lot of fruit in addition to your other meals and as a result consume more calories than you use up over the long term. Fructose, which is naturally contained in fruit or other foods, can generally be regarded as less of a problem. The fructose used as an isolated ingredient is particularly critical, for example as a sweetener in some soft drinks. Excessive consumption of fructose in this form can lead to gastrointestinal problems, for example.

Apples, bananas, grapes, and the like do not automatically make you fat if you use them to replace parts of other meals, for example, a slice of cheese or sausage at breakfast. Of course, excess calories can also be burned off with sufficient exercise. Try to eat the fruit in the morning or afternoon and eat vegetables in the evening. The high sugar content in fruit raises insulin levels and inhibits nighttime fat loss.

The roughage in the fruit (especially in the peel) counteracts this increase in insulin and makes you feel full. You should also bear in mind that fruit contains a large number of vital substances – without them, the body would lack a lot.
