Yes, I am calling the eating of fruit a sin. Sounds extreme, I know, but it is what it is. All fruit contains fructose and it is SUGAR, nature’s candy.
I belong to several FB groups on LCHF as well as a food tracker site. I constantly see people still eating fruit on this WOE and then wonder why they cannot lose weight. The biggest culprit is bananas.
Do people not realize that bananas are fruit? Do they think it is the only way to get potassium? I hate to crack your reality bubble, but bananas are fruit, they are fattening, and they are not the only source of potassium. In fact, avocados are a better source because they give you those great monounsaturated fats that are so important for the body because of the high Omega-3s.
So, the next time you need a potassium boost, eat a 1/2 an avocado instead! The fat and fiber in avocados will help keep you full too, which is an added bonus!
Note: after the initial 2 week induction phase, you can (but you don’t NEED to) add a few berries to your diet, but just a few. But if you want optimal health and sustainability on the LCHF diet… quit the fruit!
