I've been basically following a 70/20/10 split of carbs/fats/protein, and recently a lot of my calories are coming from fruit, since I really don't like upping the fat intake.
For example today on the fruit side of things I'm having 5.5 apples, 2 bananas, 1 cup red grapes, 1 kiwi, 1 orange, 1 pear, and 1 tomato.
The problem is that this is 202g of sugar, when the RDA of sugar for women is 40-90g.
I know there are lots of people on high-fruit diets who do well, and before I switched from 50% raw to 100% raw with more fruit, I had unbelievable fruit (sugar?)cravings. But I've read that to do well on a high fruit sugar diet, you have to be really active or you'll gain weight. I'm not sure how active this means.
I do 10 minutes of moderate-intense cardio every day, and 30-50 minutes of resistance training every seconds day, with one rest day on the weekends, and I've been getting ripped pretty fast. But I'm completely housebound so other than lots of cooking and cleaning, I'm mostly sitting on the computer. Is the cardio and resistance training enough to make up for the sugar, even though I'm not, say, a triathlete or going for day-long hikes or hours worth of rock climbing?
However, if I was to get more of my calories from fats instead of fruit sugars, I don't see how that would be any more useful, wouldn't that cause weight gain as well?
