Today I want to cover some interesting things about fruit. Fruit contains vitamin C, phytonutrients, and fiber. But does the bad outweigh the good?
Fruits have at least 5 times more sugar than vegetables. In fact, 85% of a piece of fruit is sugar. If you’re eating fruit for health reasons, you may want to get your nutrients from a different source.
Fruits have very low amounts of many nutrients that your body needs, including:
• B vitamins
• Vitamin D
Certain fruits have lower amounts of sugar and are fine to consume in small amounts, including:
Fruit contains glucose and fructose. Fructose might be low on the glycemic index, but it’s not a healthy alternative to sugar. Only the liver can metabolize fructose, which means it can overload the liver and cause a cascade of issues.
Other problems with fructose:
• It causes you to feel less satisfied
• It increases cortisol
• It decreases insulin sensitivity
• It contributes to a fatty liver
