rule of thumb, eat your fruit do not drink it. It is pure sugar by then!
I read many "juice" I personally do not. When I kinda crave OJ, I just suck on a orange slice and pow my sugar flies off the charts, Weird because when in the hospital on a diebetic diet they served ok- go figure

Juice is out for me. Remember a small serving6oz juice is equal to eating a large orange. I can eat most fruit without much affect to my bg. I can not eat grapes or
grapefruit these take by bg. up in a big way. Everyone is different all you can do is
try different things one at a time and see how your body reacts.

i am happy to know others noticed this problem…thought i had a weird system , or something…thanks jayabee…your reply is a logical reason…the fiber take longer to get into the system…juice is reduced of most of the fiber…now , it's so clear…duh !!!!

I most certainly didn't intend for you to feel a "duh" moment, Brenda. I'm glad you were smart enough to get it, and also smart enough to actually ask a question like this. It helps us all, because who knows how many in DC land had noted this but never stuck their neck out to ask the question. I myself learned this a while ago when someone else asked a similar question. Just tryin to "pay it forward". Blessings to you and yours

That is not amazing to me because the fruits have fiber in them where the juices do not. The fiber tends to counteract the carbs in the juices. If you have to consume fruiit is always better to eat it than drink it unless you are wanting to correct a low glucose reading.

That is strange. I can have like a orange section, a small piece of Mellon. Any more than that and yes even no sugar added juice and my numbers go ballistic!!!
