People with diabetes, hypoglycemia, and candida are told not to eat fruit. They don’t eat fruit because of its sugar content, yet they’ll eat candy, bread, cake, and drink alcohol. Does this make sense to you? Fruit is over 80% water and its sugars are simple and easy to digest.

Ask Roe

by Roe Gallo, M.A.

From Living Nutrition vol. 3

Q: Will I get too much sugar from eating fruit?

A: Your body needs carbohydrates (sugar) to make glucose. If you don’t have enough carbohydrates in your diet, your liver will produce the glucose you need to keep your blood sugar level in balance.

When you eat carbohydrates your blood sugar level rises and your pancreas secretes insulin into your blood. Insulin is a hormone which serves to carry sugar into your cells. The insulin signals your liver to stop producing glucose. However, if you eat concentrated sugars, your blood sugar level becomes too high, too fast causing your pancreas to produce more and more insulin and become overworked. If your pancreas cannot secrete enough insulin to keep up with your body’s sugar levels, your liver will not get the signal to stop producing glucose, therefore your liver will continue to produce glucose even though your blood sugar levels are already high. This puts your blood sugar levels way out of balance and your life in danger.

People with diabetes, hypoglycemia, and candida are told not to eat fruit. They don’t eat fruit because of its sugar content, yet they’ll eat candy, bread, cake, and drink alcohol. Does this make sense to you? Fruit is over 80% water and its sugars are simple and easy to digest.
