Sugar in fruits

Ask the Nutritionist

Posted by Leggzs72 on 5 years ago Since sugar in fruits are natural why can't we juice only fruits for lets say breakfast as a T2 diabetic?

    I'll defer to the Nutritionist on this question, however, I just finished reading Dr Joel Fuhrman's 'Eating for Health' book and he indicates that some of his adult onset diabetic patients have resolved their diabetes on his plan or significantly reduced their need for medications. I'm doing his plan for weight loss as I'm not diabetic but I thought I throw that our there for you to look at. On your question I think you really need to be careful with sugars, natural or not. Happy juicing!

    Dear Leggzs72, Here is a post on Diabetes and blood sugar control while completing a reboot - http://www.rebootwithjoe.com/sweetness-how-to-manage-your-sugar-intake-and-reboot-with-diabetes-2/ http://www.rebootwithjoe.com/protein-the-reboot-setting-the-record-straight/ Natural sugars are certainly better but you still need to be mindful of them. Let me know if you have anymore questions!
