Someone was asking the question, “If sugar is so bad, why is fruit so healthy?” There are a few things you really need to understand concerning this topic.
First off, are fruits healthy? I never actually said that fruit is so healthy. Having certain fruits on keto is not a great idea. In fact, fruits are not a part of a healthy keto plan.
The fruits we consume now are hybrids. They have been created over the years to be sweeter and sweeter. For example, a honeycrisp apple has 19g of sugar.
Fruits should be seasonal. Consuming them all year round is not natural.
Another thing to realize is that whole fruit and fruit juice are not the same. Fruit juice is basically pure sugar, where fruits do have certain nutrients.
Fruit does have good protective nutrients, but it also has a large amount of fructose (a type of sugar). 100% of fructose goes to the liver. Fructose won’t spike the blood sugar as much. However, your liver still has to deal with it. Sending too much fructose to the liver can lead to insulin resistance, which will raise insulin. The liver will also convert the fructose to fat, cholesterol, and triglycerides.
So, is fruit safe for diabetics? Well, think about this. If you have diabetes, eating fruit is like adding sugar to a condition that is already too high in sugar.
The ketogenic diet and fruits do not mix. If you’re wondering what to eat on keto instead, a small amount of berries are a better choice.
