carb sensitivity

Hi everyone

I've read a few threads about it but had a few questions...

1) Would you say that most people who put on fat easily are carb sensitive?

2) what are the ways to find out wether you are?

3) There are conflicting advice on various forums. Some suggest limiting complex carbs, others say fructose should be avoided (a nutrition guru on bodybuilding even goes as far as to say bbers shouldn't eat fruit!). Is veg always a good option? What are your views?

Thanks agian for your help!

Thanks

    No.


    2) what are the ways to find out wether you are?


    Unsure,I'll let one of the otheres tackle that.

    3) There are conflicting advice on various forums. Some suggest limiting complex carbs, others say fructose should be avoided (a nutrition guru on bodybuilding even goes as far as to say bbers shouldn't eat fruit!). Is veg always a good option? What are your views?



    Avoid fruit? thats very generalized is'nt it,the benefits of fruit far outweigh any minor niggles IMO,whats are the nutrition "gurus" reasons? veg is great.

    That's his view (hope he doesn't mind me quoting him...)

    'Fruits are normally fructose, fructose stores in the liver. Once the storage is full it goes to fat storage. This is the abbreviated version, but it tells you why BBers don't need fruit.'
    and
    'In general, you can get everything from fruit you can get from vegetables. That, and veggies are more productive for a BBer due to higher fiber content, choline, etc.
    The people that NEED fruit in a healthy diet are ones that eat processed foods too often. Only then are the anti-oxidants and other considerations important. As someone even health and fitness orientated, if you don't eat out, you don't even need fruit.'

    many times I would dress myself in the "carb sensitive" label.....but really most people are fat simply cos they eat too much...and when I get fat its really more to do with portion sizes etc rather than being carb sensitive

    I think to NOT eat fruit is silly......I am sure it can be argued about fructose etc blah blah blah, but fruit is tasty, cheap, easy to eat, readily available, full of vitamins etc.all benefits which far outweigh any fructose is bad studies!

    genetics may play some part in how lean you are or how fat you get etc.but diet is a bigger factor IMO

    Do you mean carb, or insulin sensitive?

    high Insulin sensitivity is a good thing
