What is so bad abut them?


Every single fruit contains some amount of fructose. Fructose is one of simple sugars, also called fruit sugar.

One gram of fructose is (4) four kcal. That is why; eating to much of it will result in weight gain. Fruits like bananas, avocados, grapes are especially high in fructose. That is why they were listed on high GI food list. Fructose will also reduce level of hormone responsible for you feeling full and raise one responsible for you feeling hungry.

That is why you may feel always hungry after eating fruits, and reaching for more.



Eat or not to eat?


Eat. There may be reason why they are potentially more caloric but it is the same like with having anything else. You may have a slice of cake or you may inhale whole one. It is up to you.


With fruits is the same. One banana here and there will do more good than harm. Key here is not to include only fruits with high fructose level.

If you like them it’s good, they are still healthy. Have them once for a while. After all, they are good source of vitamins, water, fibre and more.


Be careful when you are fan of smoothie. As you know, most of them are banana based. One here, two there and your score might go higher than expected.
