Go to your local supermarket to find gas on sale for under $1 per pound! Per pound? Yep, in the form of bananas. Most other fruits, as well. As you probably know already, fructose (and any sugar) is a major, major problem in human diets. Its excessive consumption leads to increased LDL cholesterol, blood sugar, and body fat, as well as obesity. Want another reason to avoid it? It can give you as a diarrhea. You may or may not know this from experience already, so this may serve as a friendly reminder. Fructose is absorbed in the small intestine, or at least supposed to be. If not enough GLUT 5 transporters (molecules that carry the fructose to the liver for processing) are present, fructose can reach the lower intestine where your body’s healthy, normal bacteria digest it. Guess what they produce? Gas!
Ask your trainers for hints on how to avoid fructose, or eat healthy sources and amounts of it.
