I'm very confused. I have been trying to slowly change my diet to start (finally after being diagnosed 2 years ago) eating healthier. I've been eating a salad every day for lunch. I've also been trying to eat a piece of fruit every day rather than sweets. I've been eating a small banana almost every day, but it has caused gastrointestinal issues, so I realized that I need to switch to another fruit. I'm not a big apple eater and a lot of winter fruits don't do anything for me. So I switched a couple days ago to Mandarin Oranges (Tangerines). I just looked up the nutritional information on them and there is are 26g of Carbs - 4 Fiber (which is what I need), and 21g of sugar!! Is this a good type of sugar? I thought fruit was supposed to be good for us? Can someone explain this to me please? I think I'm going to ask my doctor to send me back to the nutritionist. I give up!!!
