Along with vegetables, fruit is one of the healthiest foods you can eat. But all fruits are not created equal. Some are very high in sugar, which can lead to blood glucose spikes and crashes, excessive hunger, and persistent sugar cravings.

If you’re limiting your sugar intake, and especially if you have a health condition like diabetes, it’s a good idea to eat mostly low-glycemic fruits. These fruits don’t contain as much sugar, so they don’t stimulate the body to produce as much insulin – a chemical that, among other things, makes you hungrier.

In general, berries and melon are quite low in sugar when compared to other fruits. Papayas, lemons, limes, peaches, and nectarines have a low to medium sugar content. Apples also have moderate sugar, but their fiber content makes them a healthy choice.

Avoid figs, bananas, mangos, and tangerines. They tend to be very high in sugar.
