Why are apples NOT recommended for someone who has diabetes?

There's a common misconception floating around the Internet that apples are not recommended for somebody who has diabetes. This is misleading at worse, and downright dangerous. While it's certainly true that apples have a lot of carbohydrates, they also contain a lot of fiber. It's the fiber contained in apples that help counteract the high level of natural sugars that they have.

Nobody is suggesting that you sit down and eat 30 apples in one shot, but if you do have an apple a day, there's certainly nothing inherently wrong with this provided that your monitoring your carbohydrate intake on a daily basis. Most medical experts agree that consuming approximately 75 grams of carbohydrates per meal is perfectly acceptable. Therefore, if you're sitting down for a meal that you know contains approximately 35 grams of carbohydrates, and you want to eat an apple, definitely eat the apple!

The last thing you want to do is find yourself in a situation where you're constantly in fear of eating foods that are generally considered to be healthy for most people. Yes, you need to monitor how much sugary type food your consuming, and yes it's true that an apple does contain a lot of natural sugars, but these types of sugars are generally far healthier than the processed sugars contained in candy bars and other similar types of synthetically created food.

In the final analysis, it's simply not fair to say that apples are absolutely not recommended for someone with diabetes. It's too extreme of a statement. Any one food item can become a problem if you're eating too much of it. As mentioned before, it doesn't make sense to sit down and eat 30 apples, but neither does it make sense to sit down and drink 30 cups of water in a row.

As with anything else related to the type of food you eat, moderation is key. Watch what you are eating, get some exercise on a daily basis, and you can begin to reverse the effects of diabetes within 30 days.
