Recently one of my clients asked me about eating fruit on an empty stomach as a snack option. We all love munching into a delicious fruit and for some people it’s a great choice but for others it can be a disaster. Why? When you eat fruit alone it tends to spike your blood sugar, making you more ravished an hour later with decreased energy. Try pairing fruit with a healthy fat such as almonds or protein like Greek yogurt. Always listen to your body and figure out what works for you. Be in touch with your true hunger levels; you may find that you will feel more satisfied and have longer lasting energy to hold you over until your next meal when you do a combination instead of a fruit alone. But if you find that your body loves munching into that amazing apple and it keeps you fueled until your next meal, go for it. Everyone is different, with different body types and lifestyles.
