Sugar detoxes are becoming more and more popular, but one big question a lot of people have when starting their detox is: “What about fruit?” We all know fruit has sugars, so naturally our panic alarm goes off in our head. There is tons of talk these days about the damage that fructose can do to your health and fructose is in fruits. That’s a pretty scary thought. If you are supposed to avoid fructose, does this include fruit? We grew up learning how great fruit is for us…so shouldn’t it still be included in our diet?
Many people have different theories on this. I don’t know about you but personally, I love hearing evidence backed up through serious scientific studies. So I’m going to break down a few different sugar studies that have been done specifically to determine whether or not fruit is a sugar we should keep or kick to the curb.
