    Anytime, EXCEPT as a late night snack. That will spike insulin production. I used to believe that old admonishment of eating fruit alone. But imo I think fruit eaten w/ whole coconut creme or any full fat dairy product(cream, kefir, yogurt) or other full fat foods (even a few soaked nuts, an avocado), slows down it's digestion & slows down the blood sugar spike normally associated w/ eating fruit alone.

    For sure, today's hybridized fruits are tons sweeter & much bigger than ancient fruits. They were smaller, less juicy, more bitter & sour & less sweet.

    I think you can eat too much if you want to loose weight that is what happens with me. Also, don't try living on it or even close to that. I think it is very rare that a person can do this if at all possible. I nearly ruined myself trying.

    We can measure calories in, but we can't really measure calories out, because metabolism is dynamic and can change minut-by-minute. This leads people to (incorrectly) assume that since calories out can't be measured or tracked, then it must not exist.

    If you want to see an example of your metabolism change, try eating a few spoons of sugar or some fruit. Very shortly afterward, your pulse will likely speed up in reaction to the sugar. This is an indication of increased metabolism. Our bodies are CONSTANTLY adjusting to the amounts and types of food we give it. Eat very low carb or calorie restrict for a few days or more, and your body will slow down metabolism. This may mean that your temperature slightly decreases, your pulse slows down a bit, or any number of unseen internal processes are put on hold.

    This is why those suggestions to 'cut 100 calories a day and lose 10lbs per year' don't work; aside from the fact that calorie intake AND activity levels change every day, the body is very good at lowering it's daily calorie requirement when it senses chronic undereating. This is the reasoning behind calorie cycling; a few days of lower calorie eating to burn off some fat, then a day of normal or higher calories to prevent metabolism from lowering in response.

    Actually, any medical textbook or published article in a medical journal that I've read does indeed say that EXCESS dietary fat is stored directly as adipose tissue.

    Uptake of individual fatty acids into adipose tissue in relation to their presence in the diet

    The role of dietary fat in adipose tissue... [Public Health Nutr. 2007] - PubMed - NCBI
    My n=1 experience supports the eating excess fat = gaining fat scenarios. When I ate ZERO carb, high fat/protein during a 2 week elimination diet (to diagnose a possible fructose malabsorption issue), I gained some fat. I continuted to eat high fat/low carb, kept putting on fat. When i significantly reduced my fat intake and increased carbs, I've started losing some of that fat.
