What would you suggest in place of fruits?

If you want low calorie, stay away from fruits and particularly juices.


The whole fruit smoothie I listed is less than 300 cal.

If you have a low to non existent activity level you should lower the amount of fruits you eat because of the higher amount of calories. For someone who exercises regularly it is a non issue.

This is dumb. If you are eating lots of fresh fruit you are likely eating less calories in other areas. The micronutrient in fruit greatly outweigh their sugar content.

I'm not arguing. It is just an opinion a trainer mentioned to me.

I wouldn't think that would be common, but Upperaltiger mentioned the calorie content in fruit was high. so I was asking what the alternative was.

Just made one out of soy milk and water (50/50) with Spiru-tein (plant based protein shake) with honey and half a mango.

I like to experiment with different juices. I use a juicer for hard vegetables and fruits and a bullet blender to mix that juice with soft fruits and other ingredients (protein, honey, lemon juice, almond butter, ground flax, soy or almond milk, etc)

Maybe I should have said carbohydrate, sugar, or specifically fructose. Some people like to minimize the intake of this, particularly in the AM when insulin sensitivity is greatest. You might use a few blackberries and raspberries, both relatively low in sugar, but very high in phytonutrients.

My protein shakes are generally:
1cup almond milk
1/2 - 1 cup egg whites
1-2 TBSP of flax, chia, and hemp seed
Small handful of blackberries
Maybe 1/2 - 1 cup of raw oats

Not as sweet and fun as some others listed, but I would argue, better for glycemic load.

re: Healthy smoothie advice needed


I've been looking for just such a smoothie
