What fruit do you find makes your BG's go up more?

Yesterday, we had watermelon, well I should say we pigged out on 1/2 of a watermelon. Plus we had ww pasta for dinner. OMG! This am my BG's were 300!!!!! Never not even after cortisone are my numbers that high. What did I learn, portion control is important, and watermelon is filled water, AND sugars.....duh! I knew that!

I love fruit, I adore this time of year when the fruits are plentiful and good. Yet, I have learned every summer that too much fruit isn't a good thing, peaches, watermelon, grapes, etc are among my most likely to raise BG's....all things in moderation.

How about you?

Cherries. Oh my, cherries are bad!
And I just bought a big bag of fresh cherries....have to go lightly on them...maybe freeze some for next winter.
Everything in moderation and portion control!
Oranges are probably my favorite, but they sure don't like my D! Also grapes will send me way up.
Pineapple, grapes, and watermelon. Cantaloupe and honeydew are 'medium' for me. Berries are good for me - strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries. Peaches, nectarines and plums are also medium - I can have one.
