    Duly noted. Thanks!

    You don't have to turn it into a calculated "carb up" or refeed though. Just eat a piece of fruit 30-60min before you workout, and have your serving of sweet potato and maybe 1 serving of fruit after your workout.

    But Leida, you are doing a program that has you deplete you muscle glycogen and eat really low carb and really low calorie for 4 days a week. Your experience with eating startches in that situation is going to differ from someone who isn't following UD2.0

    Thanks for this guideline! I'd been working out on an empty stomach; I'll give this a shot.

    Use it sparingly. A little bit brushed over a pork loin or some grilled chicken is great. You can make a great Asian marinade with chili paste, tamari, fish sauce, garlic, ginger and a little honey. It's also good in some buffalo wing sauce to take the edge off. Even a teaspoon in a cup of tea won't kill you. It depends what your goals are. The less fat you want to lose, the less you have to limit honey consumption.
    Don't put your trust in anyone on this forum, including me. You are the key to your own success.

    I keep my fruit consumption down to 1 to 2 servings a day, and usually a cup of berries or these days, 1 Spartan apple or 1 pear. Sometimes I'll have 1 banana besides, but not every day.

    Comments like this and in this thread were why i was seeking help on my thread about hunger. We all know to avoid veggie oils, commercial/added sugar, and grains. But apparently dairy and fruit and starches are off limits too! Steaks and salads and bacon for life hehe

    But really, is one glass of apple juice the same as one apple? A banana is bad or poisonous for us? Why is a tomato or carrot better for my body than a pear?

    Well, it would take way more than one apple to make a glass of apple juice. Yesterday I made a smoothie with 5 strawberries, a banana and a half a cup of coconut water and it gave me about 10 oz of smoothie.

    Dairy, fruit and starches aren't off limits by the way. And who on earth says bananas are poisonous? Who are you quoting? Someone in this thread? (which by the way is a year old.)
