Interesting, I can eat very little fruit (I wish that I could) without increases in BG that I don't want. I do eat avocados frequently. Never even thought that was the only exception to fruit. Take a look at all of the benefits that are associated with avocados and read about fat content (for those who monitor all fats extremely closely).

I have great results with it and it compensates for all of the things that I do longer eat but, by doing so, I have very good control without medication.

1 oz or 2Tbs of mashed avocado has 2g of carbs and 1g of fiber. Avocados are considered a fruit. Hope this helps.
