Fruit has a mixture of different sugars.

check out the fructose content of some of the fruits in that chart and see that a banana is practically split 50/50 with fructose/glucose at the 4/5 gram range. Soda pop has 60 grams of fructose -- practically 12 times that of fruit!

As you can tell, I'm not a fan of low-carb diets when they exclude whole foods like fruit. Give me a break...just stop eating muffins instead.
Actually, he asked about carb choices post workout and it got derailed, I'm probably part of the problem here.

I frankly don't agree with you at all about fruit, and I'll leave it at that.

You give a small child an orange and a piece of broccoli, I can tell you without even batting an eyelash which they are going for as their brain is craving the one with more CHOs. I don't need a huge amount of medical literature nor a definition of left and right-handed sugar to figure it out.

(And just to give a happy list, here is a list of the amount of fructose in fruits)
