    Just a small observation

    On my off days when Im very low on carbs Im usualy pretty cold.

    But by just adding 3-4 pears(I guess thats roughly 30-40g carbs)I get very hot and sweaty.
    The thing is carbs from say brown rice, oatmeal or potatoes doesnt at all do that to me. Only fruits.

    I guess increased bodyheat=more kcal burned. But if those kcal burned is only the carbs I consume then that is no good.

    So my question is would those 3 pears a day be detrimental or good for my diet. Does the increased bodyheat and extra vitamins mean more fat burned, or is it just the carbs burning and the fat stores are not affected.

    Is it only the carbs in the fruits that are making me hot or does fruits contain something that increase metabolism?

    I can't answer your questions, but I would suggest that the fruit maybe hindering your progress as you stated in your other thread.

    If anything I would say ditch them, they may be stalling your progress.

    I havent eaten fruit anything during the diet except last week cause I had mad sugar cravings and figure its better to eat pears then sweets. Il ditch them now probably. But they do wonders to my stomach. I get almost constipated when dieting normaly(even though I eat oatmeal almost everyday) and fruits make my stomach a ok.

    Does psyllium seeds work good for that purpose?

    I know that fruits have a higher glycemic index number that that of brown rice, oatmeal, etc. Maybe that has something to do with how your body is burning it.
