In fact, it causes an Insulin release, after spiking blood sugars. Insulin is known as the fat storing hormone. If you don't spike your blood sugar, then you don't cause a huge Insulin release, and store less fat. Low glycemic foods, as well as fats and proteins, do not cause huge spikes in blood sugar. Carbs do, and fruit is a carb. Low glycemic fruits include apples, and berries. The more carbs you eat at one time, the more fat you will store. Of course we also burn these fat stores, so some carbs are good, just try not to have too many at one time, if fat loss is your goal.
