    Hey Paul, did you notice all the sugar in the fruit??

  2. Lucy says:

    Although the fruit has sugar….it also has vitamins that oreos and skittles don’t have.
    Very interesting chart. Thanks for sharing

    You also have to consider that a lot of that sugar – especially in the soda, candy and cookies – comes in the form of “refined” sugar, high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS), etc. The fruit is a simple sugar – administered in a form that your body needs and can recognize.

    That said, I’m off to eat my “Breakfast of Champions” … a bag of M&M’s and a can of Mt. Dew!!

    Maybe we should just all live on a pure ketchup, carrot and breakfast cereal diet? 🙂

    Well it’s good thing I don’t have a sweet tooth huh?? ><

    Lucy and Laura, the reason I said that to Paul is he’s a diabetic and isn’t supposed to eat many kinds of fruit. Some have less sugar than others but sugar is sugar in this case but it’s so programed into us that fruit is good for us and some of it is not good for him.

    This is great but I think it’s important to keep in mind the difference between processed sugar and natural sugar (fruit).
