    Dehydrated Fruits on P3?

    Is it ok to dehydrate our own fruits on p3? obviuously with nothing added. Or even apples on P2?

    I asked this question yesterday. Two of my favorite nutritional "experts" both gave me a big NO. They told me that it changes the composition of the apple and makes it more of a dessert. Also one of them mentioned that the enzimes in the apple are probably crucial for the diet. I also read somewhere on-line (hcgdietinfo ?) that dehydrated fruit is not P3 friendly.

    really? i wonder why they think that.

    i eat "crispy greens" apples during P2 without an issue- but they are freeze-dried.

    dried fruits are ok for P3 but in limited quantities, and only the lower-sugar types. it is very easy to eat a LOT of dried fruit without realizing it, and for that reason i'd guess that most sites just say to avoid them. i'd be super cautious with stuff like raisins and pineapple, and only eat that later in P3.

    Okay mgsondance, you made me go searching for an answer again. Thanks
    I found a couple of places that sounded like the advice they had given me. Here is a good explanation:

    I really wanted to cry- actually had gone out and bought a dehydrator and borrowed an apple peeler, corer, slicer hoping or a weekend of dehydrating bliss :'(

    sounds like you don't lose nearly as much nutrition from home dehydrators, so i'd say to go ahead! but as i said, you really have to watch portion size because per volume, you're eating a lot more fruit when it's dried.

    My favorite tuna salad from Whole Foods has some dried cranberries in it (along with onions and canola mayo)...I bought some yesterday but was thinking I needed to avoid the dried cranberries...but it sounds like maybe a few are ok?

    dried cranberries almost always have sugar added to them- so i'd say no for P3. the problem is they also have natural sugar, so you don't know how many of those sugars are natural and how many are added.

    I have no formal advice, only my experience. I have eaten dried dates (w/ marscapone cheese in them, wonderful) and a couple of dried apricots this p3 and I stayed 4-5 lbs under ldw. I made sure that they had no added sugar, but I know they have alot of natural sugar. When I combined them w/ the fat I had them early in the day, just so it wouldn't be sitting in my stomach all night. I have no idea if that helped or not, just saying. I also had a lara bar here or there (dates, and nuts). I did much better this p3 than last p3, and the big difference that I see is I have only had 2 mug cakes and in those I use only a portion of the half and half and add water to equal the amount called for. I seem to do better on the dried fruit than the mug cakes. That is what is nice about p3's you get to experiment and correct, this protocol is very educational.

    you might be someone who does better in the long run eating fewer fats, and more good carbs.

    Maybe so. I will be trying oatmeal in the next day or so. I really have no desire to eat breakfast until p4. Maybe that is what my body is telling me-good carbs. Well, it is actually probably saying-moderation.
