    Im following meal plan 1 which calls for fruit (FR) twice on training days but none on Rest days– is it recommended not to eat fruit on rest days? If so, why?

    It is not recommended to eat fruit on rest days because you aren’t exerting as much energy on rest days so the sugar from fruit has a better chance of being stored as fat instead of used for energy.

    Thanks, Naomi! Would that still be the case if fruit were to be eaten within the assigned macro/calorie allotment?

    That is correct. It is the SUGAR in the fruit, not the carbs, that could cause fat storage as oppose to energy burn. If you eat a potato with 20g of carbs but virtually no sugars, and eat a piece of fruit with 20g of carbs but a higher amount of sugar, the fruit is more likely to be stored as fat than the potato because of the sugar content, even though they have an equal amount of carbs.

    It is not advised in this plan to eat fruit on rest days.

    Is it okay to have 1 serving of fruit per day (1×7 = 7 servings per week) instead of 2 on training days and none on rest days (2×5 + 0x2 = 10 serving per week)

    Nicole does not advise having fruit on rest days.
