    If you want fruit, then go for the dark fruit such as blue berries...Since you are on a low carb diet, you might want to avoid eating a lot of fructose. It gets stored in the liver and has a more negative effect on the insulin/glucagon ratio

    yeah blueberries are great - high in anti-oxidants too. Carrots have sucrose as opposed to fructose - and you have to eat a tonne of them to effect your low-carb diet in a major way.

    Fruits are tricky in a low carb diet, but blueberries take the cake because they are sweet and have so many healthy benefits. Other than that you kinda stuck with veggies and maybe some Crystal Light in water to ward off cravings. Works well for me.

    I don't think you need to worry too much about having some fruit in your daily diet unless you are really going nuts. I eat peaches, strawberries, bananas, apples, grapes, pineapple etc all the time and I am doing okay

    If you are really concerned just check out a website with a list of nutritional information of foods (google, easy to find) and pick less calorie dense fruits. Berries tend to be low-cal generally speaking, and most have lots of fibre and antioxidants which provide additional benefits.

    a particularly neat trick is freezing the blueberries or grapes. tends to make you eat them slower, and it changes the taste some of blueberries in a nice way.

    Why worry about the sugar intake dealing with fruits? Why not just eat some greens...spinach, broccoli, asparagus, romaine lettuce...very full of vitamins and minerals, and don't have to worry about calories....

    Not saying don't consume fruits, but if one was on a low carb diet....why not just eat a bunch of greens? Curious.

    yeah, but a cup of pineapple has only 22g of carbs or a cup of blueberries 19g. thats a good bit of pineapple. so yeah, though fruits have carbs, incorporating some small amount isn't bad for extra taste.

    Am I going to have to school you in your basic foodgroups

    Berries are great; Grapefruits are also a good choice because their very low GI & GL. The only other fruit I eat are apples, simply because I love them.

    Don't forget the wonderful kidney beans, and soak them in baking soda to eliminate the gas issues

    also it should be mentioned that most of the sugar from fruit is fructose which doesn't effect insulin levels and fills up liver glycogen. So its not in the same category as just plain glucose.

    You could stick with low-GI carbs as well.

    When I want to cut up I INCREASE the amount of fruit and veggies I eat, for 2 reasons. 1. It helps keep my raging hunger under control. 2. It makes me feel great. F & V are something I eat as much as I want of whenever I want.

    Not to mention, if you are snacking on fruit or adding it to a meal it could very well help curve any desire to eat or binge on the real not so good carbs.

    from one of my standard posts in the weight loss area...

    which is better to eat?


    so just eating the one thing of raspberries with topping is around 55 cals, so even if all sugar its still only 14g
