View Full Version : Fruit question...
12-04-2005, 09:31 AM
Last time I had blood work done, I came in just under the cutoff point for type 2 diabetes. I have been reading about the Hallellujah diet and also the Raw detox diet and am thinking that keeping fruit intake low and eating the low gi fruits..at least for now, is what I need to do. Dates, etc are probably not good for me right now either.
Any input from you veteran rawies?

I personally know some people with diabetes that have improved and they ate fruit. I personally don't have any experience with this as I don't have diabetes. Here are some stories of people who did have diabetes and some articles that may give you some info that may help you:

Hello Jan, my name is Malinda and I want to take a minute and respond to what you said about diabetes, fruit and the Hallelujah Diet. A few years ago I was diabetic. My doctor was furious and I did not want to go on meds. Anyway about this time I heard about the Hallelujah Diet. I took a class and did the diet for several months. I lost weight and no longer struggled with diabetes. My doctor was thrilled. OK, so I do have to be careful with my fruit intake. I pretty much only have fruit before noon. And only as snacks in between my veg juices. Never in the afternoon unless it is an apple. I limit my morning fruit to 1-2 a day. Any more than that and I can't handle the sugar. Keep in mind that everyone's body is different and responds differently. If blood sugar is a concern, then be careful with fruit intake for a while and use a glucose monitor. When I went raw I used my monitor for a year until I learned what fruits and how much fruit my body can handle. Although fruit is an excellent food, there are a lot of WONDERFUL veggies and veg juices out there to try.
I do not limit what kinds of fruit I eat and I eat a variety. I only eat one serving instead of indulging myself. I also do not feel I am missing out on anything and I am enjoying great health. :D
