Great informative article.
Not only would list be better sorted by lower to higher carb /glucemic index, but include more of the lower carb fruits like blueberries, blackberries - nothing on here is lower than 25 carbs (Grapefruit) and there are fruits that are lower carb.
wow, didn't know that. thank for the article
Seeing where the banana is placed really enlightened me. I had no idea that it was so high.
Excellent article, good need-to-know information.
The g index is close to the carb count. It kind of helps. Fruit is great for you, and all fruits are not same. I love cherries but to many are bad for me whatever scale it falls on.
I am not diabetic, but I thought the article was quite informative, thanks!
I didn't get what this article was talking about. OK fruit is OK to eat. But then it proceeds to tell you how bad everything is. And I still don't understand this glycemic thing, why didn't the article simply point out what fruits are best to eat and which one's to avoid. Now that would have been helpful instead of all the double talk the article contained.
Grapefruiit can be very dangerous if you are taking medication. Check with your pharmacist before eating grapefruit or drinking grapefruit juice.
I, too, would have liked to have it by numbers, so copied it and put it in a table I could manipulate. Different people work different ways. Thank goodness for software!
This was a good article. However, what it does not address is the rush of sweetness that comes with some fruit eating. Not just the actual glycemic index and 'carb' reaction. But also the rush of the body FEELIng the sweet. Some of us are quite sensitive to that. It triggers much overeating and even binges which of course lead to sugar problems.
Gotta know ones own body and soul when it comes to food.
