Hello divine beauties!
I am back with another article which is about high sugar fruits you must avoid. Whether you are trying to control weight or diabetes, staying away from these foods will improve your health. Since fruits are essential in your life as they provide you with nutrients, do not stop consuming them, you just need to limit the intake. Let’s see which fruits I am talking about.
Bananas are rich in calcium, protein, phosphorus and carbs and hence need to be consumed daily by people who are trying to gain muscle mass or weight.But, bananas have a higher glycemic index than other fruits. The body digests and absorb high GI foods more rapidly which causes fluctuation of blood sugar level. Still it does not mean that you should ignore bananas fully. Bananas offer numerous other health benefits too like they give ample energy before workout and amp up the metabolism too.
Most of the people are fond of oranges. Oranges contain anti-oxidants and are rich in Vitamin C. But this fruit contains high sugar content and more calories than other citrus fruits. While the same amount of grapefruit provides 46 calories, orange has 62. So it’s better to add grapefruits to your groceries than oranges.
Mangoes are not only delicious but sugary too. An average portion of a mango contains more than 15 grams of sugar. While an occasional treat of a slice of mango won’t hurt you, never opt for mango shakes and juice. Apples are, in this case, better than mangoes and offer more health benefits too.
Grapes contain high sugar and consuming one cup of grapes can give you more sugar and carbohydrates than you require. This, if you already have high blood sugar, can affect your sugar levels instantly.
Dates are perfect when you need instant energy. Dates do not increase cholesterol and don’t have proteins but their carbohydrate content is largely made of sugar. This is the reason why diabetics are allowed dates only in small portions. But, it still remains to be a superfood that can increase your overall health.
Pineapple is a tropical fruit and is also high in sugar. Therefore limit the consumption and don’t eat pineapples more than five times a week. This fruit is also high on glycemic index (a scale that measures the extent to which foods affect blood glucose level). Again, instead of avoiding this food completely, do include it to your fruit salads and raita for it offer major antioxidant and vitamins boost.
We all love watermelons during summers but did you know the flesh of watermelon contains about 250 milligrams of citrulline per cup, i.e. 46 calories? This might not sound huge but turns out to be a lot of calories when watermelon is consumed in large amount. The only saving grace here is that a major part of watermelon is just water.
