Fruit at night
I've recently had a medical, which showed high sugars in the urine, and a subsequent fasting blood test showed a glucose level of 8.3. Okay, not good news but expected given my lifestyle.
I'm 40 and overweight (19 stones, 6'3"). Doc wants me to go straight to treatment for diabetes, but I know they need 2 blood tests to confirm it so not going down that route yet. I'm going to try the old weight loss/exercise thing first. That's a bit of background for you.
So, with the help of my wife, and a friend, I've got a sort of diet planned out, low carbs, multigrain bread (minimal amounts taken), wholemeal pasta (reducing the portion), more salads etc. All seems to be taking care of itself, apart from 1 area - fruit.
I know fruit has natural sugars in it, and given my potential diagnosis, I want to avoid sugar. So what's the story here. I've a bit of a problem in that I work very random shifts, so may get home at 10pm, sometimes later. Can I eat fruit late at night, is there a limit to the amount of fruit I can have in a day. Favourite fruits are banana, grapes, raspberries. Any advice you can offer will be gladly received. Thanks.
