Why Fruit is Not Allowed

When I talk about the Dukan Diet to people for the first time one of their first questions and concerns is almost always: "Why am I not allowed fruit?" or "Isn't fruit good for you?"

Until now I would always respond that there is a lot of sugar in fruit and that we make fruit out to be healthier than it actually is. This was my go to answer because this is what I understood from the book.

After reading a bit further into the "Eat This Not That - Supermarker Survival Guide" I have a better and more thorough answer for all you fruit-skeptics.

So why is fruit cut out completely in the first two phases and then restricted in phase 3?

From my new understanding this is the reason:

Fruit has two sugarey components

-Glucose
-Fructose

If you eat too much fruit your body can't metabolize it fast enough so your liver puts some glucose into your blood stream.
You can get type 2 diabetes when your body can't clear glucose from your blood stream because there is too much glucose and your pancreas burns out.

Once your livers capacity for fructose is met, however, the extra fructose doesn't go into your blood stream, it is stored in your liver as glycogen.

Your liver can only store 90-100g of glycogen.

The rest is converted into fat.

Too much fructose, found naturally in fruit, raises your blood lipid levels which can cause fat deposits in your artery walls, increasing your risk for heart disease.

I hope that didn't end up confusing you more.

So although the amount of fructose you would find in let's say, an apple, isn't nearly as horrendous as a soft drink, it's still there and important to detox out of your body to make this diet successfull and then later to enjoy in moderation.
