Fruits are also high in sugar. But with careful choosing the right fruits that are fresh from the farm that is organic.

High Sugar Fruits

However, different fruits have different levels of sugar, therefore it’s important to be very mindful of that. For example, take a mango that has 46 grams of sugar, and if you’re a lover of mango, it would be best not to have a whole mango at one eating, but just a few slices at a time.
Mango is juicy and delicious, from experience growing up in the tropical area where

      To your health.


  2. Wellness is very necessary for one to live a wonderful life. Wellness should be a top most priority for everybody and we should not focus on wellness on the inside or outside alone, we should focus on both. Thanks for using this article to pint this out. This is a great article.

    • You’re welcome Kelvin, I appreciate your kindness and support of this post; having wellness of the body is overall, because what you put on the inside it does reflect and show on the outside, so both area’s  is effected, therefore, I am very conscious of my intake.

  3. Personally, I suffer from type 1 diabetes so fruits can be really tricky for me. All of the nutritionists I’ve been to have told me that a banana is one of the fruits – along with mangoes – which contain the most sugary extracts. It’s best to eat them with precaution and in small portions so we can manage or blood levels even if we’re not diabetic. 

    • You are correct Stephanie, some fruits are high in sugar, and you have to be mindful in choosing the ones that are much lower in sugar like Strawberries, Blackberries, Kiwis, grapefruit, Lemmon, and vegetables as Avocado and cucumbers are few of many that is less sugary things to eat. 

      Thanks for your comment.


  4. It’s definitely necessary to have a healthy and well-balanced diet on a regular basis. I’ve been striving for that all my life and focus on low-carb fruits, eggs, fish, vegetables, almonds, and nuts. I also drink lemon water and various herbal teas. 
    You are right that many people eat too many calories, too much sugar and salt, and don’t care about nutrients in their diet and then they wonder why they become ill. I think children should be taught these facts about nutrition from an early age to prevent all the degenerative diseases that are so widespread nowadays.

    • That’s wonderful Lenka, you’re doing the right thing, taking very good care of your well-being, and for sure if families practice that at an early age with their children, there wouldn’t be so much obesity and illness derived from poor eating habit.  “Of course, give and take the unfortunate who are not able to maintain a good balance diet”. 
      Thanhs for your comment.

      Stay bless.


  5. Hello Elizabeth!

      on our wellbeing, cause our health is our greatest wealth.

      Thank you and stay blessed.


  6. Thanks for sharing this wonderful article and advice on healthy eating. I must admit, when it comes to fruit, especially Mangoes and the Sugary fruits, I could very easily get well carried away. So i should try harder to keep this in mind in the future. I really should eat more vegetables as well.

    • Many thanks Kwidzin for commenting, yes fruits and vegetables are a great fit for the body, and it is easily consumed by blending it and have it on an empty stomach daily. Then your solid meal an hour or two later.

      Stay blessed.


  7. Nice content, we have so many healthy fruits and vegetables around us and yet we fall for the junk food, we should create more content like this, good effort  Elizabeth! However, I think you should include a bit more appealing images from royalty-free images websites, and they are others like sites like that, and they have no watermark on them.

    • Thanks a great deàl for your comments, your suggestion is welcome, and I do need to do more research and write more contents for the better benefit to all.

      I was guilty of eating junk food too, but I got wiser, and it was because it had affected my health. Now I know better so I do better.

      Have a great day.


  8. Elisabeth, you have done well to prepare an article like this. I have always read that fruits are good for our health. But from this article is clear that some fruits are better than others. I was a fan of Mango, now I have to reduce my intake of mango since it has a very high sugar content. As for berries, I like straw berries and will continue to take more to stay healthy. Thanks for this and keep writing.

    • Thank you, Dr. Mau, for your kind comments, also you are welcome. If illness didn’t knock on my door, I would be still in the dark, I grew up on an island where all the fruits were organic and plentiful during my youth.

      However, since my cholesterol founding, I learned to research and educate myself in my intake. With everything there is moderation, so instead of eating two or a large mango, have a small one or slices of a large one, and that goes to all our intake, a small portion.

      Stay bless


  9. Since this pandemic started, my goal has been to keep a nutritious diet. I also want to maintaining a healthy weight. And this can only be achieved with discipline. I am excited about this journey. I personally loved mangos. But yeah, I will have to change them for berries and avocados.

    • Hi Ann Thanks for your comment on this post, I do follow this regiment too, especially since the pandemic, I mostly do smoothies daily. We only have one body it must be taken care of.

  10. Thanks for the information on fruits and vegetables and how it contributes to our health and wellness.  I have to admit I did not realize that mangoes contained that much sugar.  I think there’s an old saying that “everything in moderation”.  So like you said in the article…enjoy the mango just have a few slices and not the entire fruit.

    You also said there are many great options with berries, plums, lemons, and oranges and one of my favorites, grapefruits.

    The good news is that with all of these options there’s something for everyone.



    • Hi Richard, I am glad the article information is helpful, yes for myself too, I have changed my diet and have been mindful of my intake. Mongo is still one of my favorite fruits, but now that I know better, moderation is the best.

      You are absolutely correct, there are options to choose from, and grapefruit definitely is less surgery.

      I appreciate your comment. 


  11. Thanks for this great insight on fruits and sugar content. I have eaten a ton of mango without realizing how much sugar I was actually taking in! I agree that healthy diet choices are one of the biggest keys to a happy and healthy life. Vegetables are also something I need to get in to my diet more for overall health. Great article!

    • Hi Jerry, I appreciate your comments and that you have gotten helpful information from my article, during my health issue and research did, I knew I had to share.

  12. I completely agree that the first step to a healthy mind and body is getting your diet in check. 

    Learning more about the foods you are eating helps with this tremendously as it allows you to set goals and accurately track your progress based on the nutrients you are getting from everything you eat.

    Personally, I require a lot of protein in my diet in order to function at capacity. I don’t really like the idea of depending solely on meat for my protein though, and I am always looking for new ways to supplement my diet in a healthy way. 

    Do you have any suggestions on fruits are vegetables that provide adequate protein for me to start limiting the amount of meat in my diet?

    • Hello JerromyC, I appreciate your feedback and likes on my article. 

      My suggestion on some of the fruits and vegetables that are high in protein are black beans, lima beans, cauliflower, broccoli, these are plant base. Fruits like kiwi, banana, guava, blackberry, and raspberries are just a few. All these can be found in any fruit. And veggies store. 

      However, “This information doesn’t intend to diagnose, cure, or prescribe for treatment whatsoever, it is mainly information to maintain and promote a healthy lifestyle of living.” 

  13. The doctor advised me to eat more mangoes to keep my cholesterol balance, but I have been afraid that mangoes will make me fatter. After reading your article, I know that adding some potassium to mango can prevent stroke, which is a very useful information for me.

    I’ve never liked lemon juice, but now I know it’s an important source of vitamin C and can improve skin health and lose weight. Although I really don’t like the taste, I will try to accept it. Thanks Elizabeth.

    • Hi, Julia thanks for your comment, and I am glad this information is of value to you because this is my intention. Please keep in mind that everything you do is in moderation, so when having any portion of a meal or snack, do it in moderation. I know, it worked for me.

  14. I recently went to my doctor and he suggested medication to reduce cholesterol arising out of a family history of heart disease. He did not include me trying to implement a balanced diet as you have articulated. Never knew that mangoes lower both the HDL and LDL forms of cholesterol. I also need to stay away from fruits that cause weight gain so I was leaning towards avocado but found out that it is high in cholesterol. I therefore will bring in more grapefruit which is abundant and I love. Thank you for all these tips I am going to see how best to implement them.

    • Happy 2022 Hugh, you know we are from the tropical Island with access to all kinds of helpful fruits and herbs that are great for our well being, and Grapefruit is one of them, do some research on the type of product to help cholesterol, that’s what I did when I was told mine was high, and I came upon the product (Nutrim) which is apart of my daily intake.

      However, as we get older our body slows down if we are not staying active all kinds of diseases developed including Cholesterol. Dr’s best diagnosis to this problem for us is that it is a family trait – what do they know, besides do the test and see what has developed in our blood.

      Thanks for sharing Hugh, stay blessed.
