Do you know how much fruit it would take to get to 80g of fructose? A LOT, on average a piece of fruit has about 4.5 grams. Soda pop has more like 60g.

Fruit is excellent, healthy -- when you tell ordinary people about the whole fructose concern they just won't eat it and instead have a trashy muffin ("oh look, muffins...they're healthy right?") or something. Seriously, people today are really THIS dumb.

The fruit scare is ridiculous. 2 pieces of fruit is considered a lot to your average joe. haha

Let's face it, the whole sugar craze in America has made fruit non-delectable to the masses. If you tell your average joe that he can eat an infinite amount of fruit, he will tire after the second bite of the first one.

In essence, fruit has far less sugar in it than people attribute to it. There are groups of people that live off of fruit entirely (probably not the wisest choice, but...) and have no sugar/weight related issues -- the same cannot be said for someone who lives entirely off of cake.

As per original question: brown rice is tasty...and eat fish as it tends to increase carb tolerance.
