Extra Calories and Weight Gain on a High Fruit Diet
I recently received an email from my reader Fiona who asked if it’s possible to gain weight while eating lots of calories from sweet fruit. And we’re talking from 50 to 100% more calories than you need… Fiona’s question resonated with my personal experience and a little experiment I did a couple of months ago. I’m my own guinea pig and I like to test some things on myself. Discover more in this video below.
It is quite possible to gain weight and put on some fat while eating extra calories from sweet fruit.
Extra calories can result in a weight gain no matter what’s the source of calories.
Even a hundred extra calories a day can result in a weight gain of 10 pounds over the course of the year.
It is always good to know your BMR (Basal Metabolic Rate) and your daily calorie quota based on your physical activity level.
