how to you manage to keep carbs so low eating fruit? Cantalope is 45g for a whole one and I will assume eating 3X a day you ate at least 1/2 in total which would have been 22 1/2g

Granted the berries I eat are 5-8 the cantolope is a very small 1/2-3/4" slice 4-5" long watermelon maybe a 3x3" square. And a 2"- 2 1/2" Apple. The raspberries are the worst for me, because once I'm in the berry patch it's not easy to stop eating.

I did make exception on those days, I think I was getting close to 18 or 19 carbs on those days. The chart I have says 1/4 cup of cantolope is 3 net carbs. Since they were store bought and not ripe, I don't think they were that high in carbs, I'm sure my garden fresh, ripened on the vine ones will be another story.

this brings up a good point I never thought about...

Hope someone know this.. a ripe vs unripe fruit can change the carb count? I know it does taste sweeter when ripened but are there actually a carb count difference?

I would say yes, if you look at the glycemic index, it lists foods with lower levels if unripe, like bananas. I'll just have to have only 1 or 2 bites instead of a small slice. I am currently enjoying the heck, out of garden tomatoes, and I have some heirloom type that gets me in trouble. I can eat 3 small early treat, but only 3 ounces of Berkley tie dyes. But it's worth it to have a sweet tender tomatoe.

I found this... seems it does. I dont eat fruit at all so it wont change me but I do find this interesting and advice might be to eat less ripe fruit if you are going to eat fruit

...

I favor foods with low GI. I do limit carbs, but not to anything like some of you! I'd think I have 100 g/day - not sure.

I think it matters whether the blood glucose response is fast or slow, even though both choices may be 20 g of carb. I think the fast pushes against the slow acting Lantus (for me). I'd prefer that the GI control how fast my glucose rises.

I know some of you are avoiding insulin and chose the LCHF-diet approach. I get that for sure! I'm just not there. I have no choice but to take daily insulin.

What I'm trying to do is eat, manage and not gain weight.

I'm on the learning curve.

f-d

Default Fruits

I am allowed 2 cups of melons for my carb exchange on my diabetic diet/per lunch and dinner. Watermelon works fine, but when I switched to honeydew my BG shot up...sticking with the watermelon.
