Of course, there are other studies that debunk the healthiness of fruit saying that it is high in calories, carbs, and sugar. Again, we are reminded of the good carb vs bad carb debate. Good carbs are considered food that are absorbed slowly and resist a spike in blood sugar and provide a huge amount of fiber. Foods included in this category are whole grains, vegetables, fruits, and beans. Bad carbs are foods that are absorbed very quickly into our systems and are turned into sugar for energy. Foods included in this category are white breads, rice, and other processed grains that have been stripped of their fiber. Many dieting websites make a point to monitor your fruit intake for fear of it “wrecking” your calorie intake. I believe that given the choice between a piece of whole wheat toast and an apple, you should always try to choose the apple. Integrate fruit back into your diet! Everybody processes things differently, so be sure not to go overboard.
