Is Fruit Bad For You?

In general, fruit is extremely good for you. In fact, most fruits maintain a net positive macro-nutrient balance with fiber and vitamins contributing to greater health benefits than the natural sugar found in fruit. This might lead people to falsely believe that a diet high in nutrient dense foods means that the more sugar consumed on top of those “good” nutrients is even better. Not true. The problem with diets high in sugars from any source (including fruit) is the change it has on insulin levels as blood glucose levels fluctuate wildly up and down during mealtime periods as well as between those times of snacks throughout the day.
