Carbohydrates In Fruit
Cellulose is an in digestible carb which makes it sound as tho it should be illegal. When it is added to things, I don't like it much. However, cellulose is in all fruits and veggies and my feeling is that in its natural source and when the veggies and fruits are cooked (at the beginning of the diet) all will be OK.
Throughout evolution, homo sapiens ate fruits and veggies and even though
it feeds some bacteria, I do believe we are adapted to the natural fiber
(cellulose) in these foods and that it maintains the normal good guy
bacteria in our guts if we don't overdo it with things like fiber in
the bottle or in the cereal dish.
