Does Fruit Cause Blood Sugar Problems (Diabetes, Candida)

It goes without saying that sugar has had a bad press and in fact still does. For many people this negative view of sugar also includes the sugars in whole fruits.

Can the sugar from whole fruits lead to ill health and disease or is there some other dietary factor at work, which plays a major role in blood sugar issues and conditions like diabetes and candida?

Does eating a high fruit, low fat raw vegan diet actually aid bodily health, including a healthy level of blood sugar or does it cause blood sugar disorder?

In this video we talk about the real and major dietary cause that can lead to blood sugar issues and the associated conditions like diabetes, candida, hypoglycemia and hyperglycemia.

    great video! this is what everybody needs to know

  •   Elizabeth Donaghy  |   

    very clear explanation, thanks for clearing this up for people. Most just do not understand the damage that is done to the body when they consume such high levels of fats each day.This is why I get a little nervous when I hear some raw foodies trying to help people transition to this lifestyle and they say something like, “To get started, just try to add in more fruit, as much as you can, into your daily diet.” But they need to follow that statement up by telling them that at the SAME time, they also need to decrease the fats or they may run into trouble with these sugar issues. The SAD diet needs to be actively phasing out as they are adding in more and more ripe, fresh fruits; they can’t just pile in the fruit while staying on the SAD diet. Thank you for all of your wonderful videos, you both do such a great job of gently delivering the message of this lifestyle!Peace & Raw Health,Elizabeth

    Thank you! I get asked this a lot! you explain it better than I could!

    So true. The fat makes all the difference. I found it out the hard way when I first began 80/10/10. NEVER want to make that mistake again. No fat no problem! 🙂

    True that fat can block the system. But the blood sugar will drop anyway when the body will use the sugars in fruits that burns to fast. This is why whole grain is the main food for humans, because it gives stable constant energy that last for more than 6 hours without feeling low in energy. My food is: whole grains and whole grains products, with seasonal vegetables and little fruits in season too, beans and some fish and animal food if needed.

    Great explanation. I’ve been asked that question. Thank you for clarifying.

    Thnx for the informative video. I do have a couple of questions though. If you or anyone can answer them it would be greatly appreciated:In the video you state that insulin cannot properly transport sugar to the cells when there is too much fat in the diet. And that because of this, there will be too much sugar in the bloodstream, causing more insulin to be produced in the continued effort to carry the sugar to the cells. You also state that the insulin “gets a lot of that (sugar) out of the bloodstream” causing a sugar crash. How exactly does the insulin get the sugar out of the bloodstream at this point? Can you be more detailed please?Also, in your opinion, is it better if the fats you eat (nuts, seeds, avocado) are eaten with greens and low sugar fruits like tomato and zucchini?Thnx again…

    I went raw July 213 with blood sugar levels in the 300s. 2 types of
    insulin didn’t work to get my sugar levels down but going raw did. 7
    months later my blood sugar was 98 today and I am down 45 lbs, eating
    abundantly RAW about 98%. I will have beans once a month or so, for
    hummus, use maple syrup if I’m making truffles to take to a potluck and
    treat myself with balsomic vinegar, occasionally…otherwise I am raw.
    Here is the Harvard study that backs up what Paul is saying.

    My Doctor told me that if I eat fruit, because I have Hashimotos, I should only eat half a banana per day…I don’t listen to her.

    Another point is fructose doesn’t require insulin correct me if im wrong

    Really helpful for those pesky but important questions about blood sugar and fruits. Thx!

  •   mascottie  |   

    Does this go for fats such as coconut oil and avacado?

  •   Brittany Sides  |   

    How would you address this issue for people who have hormonal imbalance (I have hypothyroidism) and need more fat in their diet? Should I then lower the amount of fruit I’m eating and eat mostly greens? Sometimes fruit makes me feel very spacey, sometimes it doesn’t. I always feel best after I eat my salads though, and I feel no different when I eat 10% or 20% fats. If anything I feel better eating more fats because my energy is more stable (but only if they are good fats like avocado/coconut/tahini-I don’t do well with nuts). I would really appreciate a reply! Thanks, and great video!

    Hi, I’d like to share my experience. When I went on the raw food diet I
    was eating a lot more fruit than I ever had in my life. I was eating no or
    very little fat and I got low blood sugar. I went to see Dr. Gabriel
    Cousens at the Tree of Life in AZ and he gave me some herbs and told me to
    only eat one grapefruit a day or some strawberries once a day for about a
    year. This corrected my blood sugar problem (the herbs helped too). My low
    blood sugar was not because of fat. I think some people do have a tendency
    towards blood sugar problems. Just thought I’d share that what you shared
    in the video isn’t everyone’s reality.

    Tried eating low fat high fruit diet and my blood sugar shot up and almost
    killed me.Might work for some people,but not for me.I am diabetic type 2 I
    am not overweight person,yes it’s possible to be type 2 and not
    overweight.Have to severely restrict or limit certain fruits.Might possibly
    be type 3 diabetic combination of type 1 and 2.Parents and grand parents on
    both sides all were type ones.Do much better on high fiber veggies/animal
    protien & fat diet.Can eat strawberries,blueberries,apples but still have
    watch the amount.

    Lately, I’ve been interested to see how I can reintroduce fruits into my
    life again (‘reversing’ my t2d now)… But I just dont understand how fat
    causes an insulin spike? I know that certain proteins, like beef, does
    this, but fat on its own can do this as well? I was wondering if you can
    provide me some reference for further studying this topic myself? Thank you

    So you are telling me eating olive oil, avocados, nuts and seeds are
    unhealthy for you …

  •   Himanshu Sarkar  |   

    Nice Video! Apologies for the intrusion, I am interested in your thoughts.
    Have you ever tried – Trentvorty Abraded Diabetes Theorem (Have a quick
    look on google cant remember the place now)? It is a smashing exclusive
    product for getting rid of diabetes without the headache. Ive heard some
    incredible things about it and my mate at very last got astronomical
    results with it.

    Daily consumption of banana marginally improves blood glucose and lipid
    profile in hypercholesterolemic subjects and increases serum adiponectin in
    type 2 diabetic patients. In this study, we explored the effects of
    consumption of banana in thirty hypercholesterolemic and fifteen type 2
    diabetic subjects. They were given a daily dose of 250 or 500 grams of
    banana for breakfast for 12 weeks. Fasting serum lipid, glucose and insulin
    levels were measured initially as well as every 4 weeks. Daily consumption
    of banana significantly lowered fasting blood glucose (from 99 ± 7.7 to 92
    ± 6.9 and 102 ± 7.3 to 92 ± 5.7 mg x dL(-1) (p < 0.05) after consuming banana 250 or 500 g/day for 4 wk, respectively) and LDL-cholesterol/HDL-cholesterol ratio (from 2.7 ± 0.98 to 2.4 ± 0.85 and 2.8 ± 0.95 to 2.5 ± 0.79, p < 0.005) in hypercholesterolemic volunteers. Analysis of blood glycemic response after eating banana showed significantly lower 2 h-postprandial glucose level compared to baseline in hypercholesterolemic volunteers given a dose of 250 g/day. The changes of blood glucose and lipid profile in diabetic patients were not statistically significant, but for plasma levels of adiponectin, there were significantly increased (from 37.5 ± 9.36 to 48.8 ± 7.38 ngnml1, p < 0.05) compared to baseline. Although it remains to be confirmed with larger group of volunteers, this pilot study has demonstrated that daily consumption of banana (@ 250 g/day) is harmless both in diabetic and hypercholesterolemic volunteers and marginally beneficial to the later.
