  • It's not that you shouldn't eat them, it's you need to limit them. Any fruit will impact your suger levels, some will impact them more then others.
    Bananas have a high sugar content when they are very ripe. Eat only 1/2 a banana at a sitting.
    Grapes, cherries, tangerines, mango and pomengranites also have a very high sugar content.

    Plums, pears, pineapple, kiwifruit and oranges are also pretty high, but not as high as those listed above.

  • On thing I could find was this:

    "Fruit Cocktail – Fruit is an integral part of a healthy diet. However, you should be buying fresh fruit and not fruit that is soaking in thick, sugary syrups. Not only is the added sugar unhealthy, fruit can lose a lot of nutrients when it is processed and canned."

  • My FIL is diabetic and he was told no bananas (though he eats them anyway on occasion because he needs the potassium) and no watermelon, and nothing canned or frozen in sugar.
