ive heard fruit uses different processes to digest and it should only be eaten on its own. so is that bullshit or real because a like to put a banana in my post workout drink but i dont want it interfering with the other nutrients i consume
Your body does not know the difference between fruit or other carbohydrates...in the end, they are all CHO. A very fibrous meal will slow gastric emptying and digestion as will a high fat meal. Your banana will not make much of a difference but a better source may be a simple carb such as gatorade which empties quickly....basically. I eat a banana and go for some gatorade powder...and then eat a full meal 30min later.
Generally they say now to eat fruits before meals or separately. Yet there is also no scientific research to back up this widely spread belief. So enjoy your fresh fruits with cereal, salads topped with yogurt or smoothies.
