I have a ravenous sweet tooth and there's no way I could stick to any kind of healthy diet without fruit. I stay away from juice though - you miss out on the fiber when you drink your fruit instead of eating it. Yogurt and fruit smoothies are yummy and keep me away from milkshakes.
I know that I was looking up information on the Low GI diet and found that most fruit is okay but that watermelon has a high glycemic index. The website stated that just because it has a high glycemic index does not mean that you can not eat but you need to combine it with food that has a lower glycemic index. I am not sure the website, I justed went to one of the search engines and put in low GI diet.
I adore my fruit too, but don't know a lot about what a diabetic can eat. I am a security guard and my boss was supposed to relieve me, He didn't show up but another coworker did and said he had to go to the dr today because his sugar was too high and so was his blood pressure. I told him he shouldn't have ate those doughnut's, those sugar free carmel clusters that have 10 grams of fat a piece, and turn down my offer as a walking buddy. I wonder if he's thinking about that today?
Fruit in and of itself isn't bad for you - unless you are allergic to some of them like myself. Also remember that chocolate in and of itself isn't bad for you - it is all in the quantity! Moderation in everything is key!
Fruit is not a bad thing. If you are diabetic, you should combine it with some protein. Fruit is great for you, has lots of fiber and should be a part of everyone's diet. If you eat it by itself though, it has too many simple carbs and will spike your blood sugar. That is why it needs to be combined.

Fruit for the most part is a big major no no for me and it has 100% nothing to do with the PCOS or Diabets and everything to do with being sensitive and alleric to various fruits out there on the market
I can get away with some fruits if they are 100% organic and haven;t been treated with homones or the like, but i ngeneral i stay clear of them because they are not worth the health risk that they do pose.
I have been tested, and ws told that I do not have any insulin problems, everything is perfectly fine. With that, I have found some different opinions on fruit. I have heard that ones with a lot of water ex. watermelon, is okay. However, I have also read that it is not okay and you shouldn't touch it. I love fruit, during the summer I am always eating on watermelon, cantelope, honeydew just about any fruit I can get my hands on. What is your alls experience? Is it okay or not?! Thanks!
