What A Huge Fruit Meal Did To My Blood Sugar (Raw Vegan Diet)

Check out my book:

For almost eight years now, I've been dumping huge amounts of sugar into my blood stream with almost every meal. I eat a raw food diet that sources most of its calories from low fat, high sugar fruits, and this confuses a lot of people.

I'm regularly told that this is simply too much sugar (as much as 400 grams of carbohydrates per meal, on occasion) and that I'm going to get diabetes or develop hyperglycemia. I must be regularly getting blood sugar spikes that do damage, they say.

Well in this video, I determine if there's any truth to this. I test my fasting blood sugar levels, eat a huge meal of bananas on film, and then retest a few hours later to see what happened to my blood glucose.

    1. +Spidey 2002 The truth? So you admit then that you rape and torture cows
      because you cross species breastfeed?

    2. +Susan Parker
      What you refer to does not make sense. the studies you site use pure
      fructose as a sweetener. The studies did not look at it taken as fruits.
      Besides, fructose although found in fruits, is not present in such large
      amouts, actually in many fruits, it is almost non existant.

    3. And WE, the rest of the world are Omnivorous. WE do not live by YOUR lives.
      So we’re even. Yet we are ahead.

    1. +Abel Carden he’s yet another vegan monkey who’s speaking from a place of
      comfort . I don’t think anyone should be eating this amount of bananas it’s
      garbage eat one than have some kale or something healthy bananas are highly
      over rated

    2. My normal reading was 87, this few week I been eating a lot of watermelon,
      2 sun dry bananas, papaya, mango, my reading was 129 I am going to stop eat
      fruit for now and do my exercise and do my reading a month from today hope
      fully it going down to 100. last time it take me 3 month from 116 to 87.

    3. Hi, I’m like your channel and I think many of your videos are very
      informative, however you seem to often miss one key factor–that everyone
      is different. I am a student studying biochemistry and this factor, when
      looking at scientific studies, cannot be emphasized enough. Some
      individuals may experience may not experience a spike in blood sugar when
      consuming large amounts of fruit. Some individuals may not experience a
      spike in blood sugar when eating a sugar cookie, others will. Some
      indiviuduals actually have less of spike from eating processed sugar than
      fruit. Yes, i know that doesn’t mean that eating cookies are healthy. A lot
      of the information you provide is very interesting and informative but some
      of it should be taken with a grain of salt. Here is the study i was
      referring to :
      https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2015/11/151119143445.htm
      The reality is that due to our many different genetic compositions and
      lifestyles, no one diet is ideal for everyone. Many of our ancestors ate
      different diets and we all have different genetic predispositions. Your
      videos are great, just something to consider :).

    4. I usually do my exercise 6 day a week my reading 87, I didn’t do my
      exercise for 1 year every things I ate it go to the roof. trend mill do a
      good job 4 miles a day and some dumb bell…today my reading 95.

  1. The science is there, as you’ve shown, for eating lots of high-sugar fruit
    being fine but it is so hard to give up avocados and balsamic
    vinaigrette’s! Is it possible to limit, rather than eliminate, my fat
    intake while eating a lot of sugar from fruit? Oh and also what about nuts?
    Does that mean that I only eat rice and oats and whole grains?
    I’m still nervous about eating so much sugar! I am not diabetic but I eat
    healthy and am looking into going raw at some point.

    1. +Hannah Patten I generally have some avocado every night. I don’t suggest a
      no-overtly-fatty-fooda diet. See my series on fat for more info.

  2. I could eat a salad with nothing but lettuce, tomato’s, chicken breast and
    maybe some carrots. My sugar will still be up around 200 before 2 hours
    are up. If I eat even a quarter of a banana, I’m over 200 in no time.
    It must be nice to eat all the bananas as in this video, but I never could
    eat one, and not pay the consequences.

    1. +manyasospapa
      [It seems fiber helps our body to metabolize fructose without a insuline
      peak]

      That’s hilarious. I suggest you read the science on why fructose does not
      spike insulin. It has nothing to do with “fiber”.

      If you admit to not knowing any of the science of fructose metabolism as
      you clearly don’t, I’ll point you in the right direction.

      [our body doesn’t respond the same way]

      Science does not speak in such generalities. I asked you for the science
      that “proves you wrong”.

      dL: “Eating like this, he is likely to have a fatty liver.”

      Now that we’ve confirmed that you have no science but only vegan talking
      points, want to see the science behind this statement?

    2. +danL1011 I see you’re an expert, I believe you wrote some books just as Dr
      Greger, who said sugar on fruits doesn’t do anything wrong to our livers,
      UNLIKE table sugar. Educate yourself, internet hero kid. Sugar on fruits IS
      NOT BAD, it doesn’t matter how much fruit you eat.

    3. +mustafa ahmed “real men cause the suffering and death of sentient beings”
      Lmao my whole fam is vegan. My bro is 200 pounds and could snap your ‘real
      man’ neck in half. You do realise the worlds strongest animals are always
      herbivores right? Also before insulting someone like andrew who is better
      informed than you. Look at your self. Heres how it works.

      A: You eat banana

      B: the sugar enters bloodstream

      C: it tries to enter cell, if there is a lot of fat (bodyfat AND DIETARY)
      then it sits in your bloodstream. Waiting for even more insulin to
      overpower the pile of grease

    4. Once u stop eating animal products and as minimal oil as possible u won’t
      have that cuz ur body comes in shock when u have literally no sugar coming
      from actual good sources and spikes as its so used to fat

  3. One thing you did not do is test your insulin response. Your sugar response
    could be normal and your insulin response really bad. Read Joseph Kraft.
    Fat has nothing to do with diabetes. Fat can decrease insulin sensitivity
    but it does not go onto diabetes. The Inuit did not get diabetes and they
    ate huge amounts of fat. They do now. BUT, it takes 20 years.

    1. +bighands69 If you look at Greenland, then they have average cancer deaths
      compared to the other Nordic countries and half the amount of
      cardiovascular deaths. The low cardiovascular deaths can maybe be tied to
      their diets, but also to their very young average age – older people die
      more of cardiovascular disease than young ones.

      Link to data – page 54:
      http://norden.diva-portal.org/smash/get/diva2:763002/FULLTEXT07.pdf

      There is nothing in general to indicate that their diets are far superior
      to a primarily omnivorous diets. If anything, it is minor. I’m guessing it
      has more to do with them not eating a lot of processed foods, as that is
      the same in my native country (Faroe Islands) and the life expectancy there
      is at the top in the Nordics, even with 25% of the populaton smoking
      (highest in the Nordics).

    2. Too bad lipotoxicity (excessive fat) is directly related with insulin
      resistance, and the is usually the onset for type 2 diabetes.

    3. +Lemonz1989 Is it really fair to compare greenlands to nordics, when they
      have 7-10 years lower lifespan and higher meat intake? Maybe they are just
      killing themselves before dying to heart diseases.

    4. +Jake H Yes, that was what I was saying. They (Greelanders) die at a
      similar rate of diseases as white Nordics, except for lower heart disease
      rates, which can be explained by several other reasons. People use Inuits
      as an example of the benefits of eating meat, but they don’t take into
      account their young average age and the significantly lower life
      expectancy. Young people usually don’t die of heart disease – it isn’t
      necessarily their diet that is the cause.

  4. it doesn’t make any sense. many people say that eating a high fat vegan
    diet is the best thing for people and there is a lot of proof for it. an
    equal amount of people are saying that eating a low fat raw vegan diet is
    best and there is also proof of peoples health to support this. then once
    we consider that a lot of people live in colder area where fruits and
    veggies simply cannot grow, they still manage to survive and lead good
    lives on their diet. there are also people who just eat insects. take a
    quiz with thousands of people choosing one of these diets, and many people
    would choose different diets to be their life style choice. some people
    simply do not want to eat certain things that other people may live on. how
    can this be?

    the only answer that makes sense is everyone needs a diet tailored to them
    due to genetic differences. what works for some people might not work for
    others, or else this matter would be straightforward and simple.

    1. The longest lived people everywhere eat high carb low fat, mostly whole
      foods. It’s very high in nutrients and it’s a diet that works for almost
      everyone who sticks to it. Sure, a high fat diet can work, too. But there
      are more question marks over its healthfulness. A plant based high fat diet
      can be made to work. But if you’re eating animal products it’s highly
      unethical, wasteful and bad for the environment.

  5. Good video, but blood sugar starts rising about 15 minutes after the meal
    and you took great liberties with summarizing the conclusion of the
    studies. My recommendation would be to test blood sugar at regular
    intervals (15 minutes) after the meal has been consumed until blood glucose
    levels normalize. This would give a more accurate representation of the
    meal’s effect on blood glucose.

  6. I became a HCLF vegan 4 weeks ago. Prior to becoming vegan, I was fat, but
    my fasting blood sugar was 93. Now, it’s 118. I consume zero animal
    products, and am on the starch based diet by Mcdougall. So far, I’m not
    impessed.

    1. +Tyler Cooper i get that and that makes sense though i was actually talking
      about how pale he looks and his skin and hair look really unhealthy. I’ve
      noticed it on a few other people doing this as well. It’s an indicator of
      being malnourished. I’m not hating, i’m interested in many diets but i
      noticed a pattern with the people that do this diet.

  7. You’re probably going to end up insulin resistant due to having to eat all
    the time. Eating raw and with little fat will almost always leave you
    hungry and wanting another meal very shortly. That’s why you ate all the
    food and said you were still hungry. I also know all this from experience,
    as I was a vegetarian for 7 years and now I’m paying the price. You need
    fats. Saturated fat does NOT clog arteries — that’s a myth. A poor diet
    low in vitamin C does — it’s basically scurvy inside your body, causing
    inflammation and scaring, that causes arterial plaquing. You’re also likely
    going to have loose, saggy skin and collagen issues when you get older.

    1. hmmm, that is not the consensus of opinion .. the fiber in fruit slows the
      process and lessens the glucose and insulin response .. fruit is broken
      down into sugars and requires insulin

    2. Anytime you eat you spike insulin. Hence, if you’re constantly eating due
      to not being satiated, insulin is high all the time.

  8. The video. First of all, the timing. He should have tested his blood sugar
    one hour after eating. Not two. His blood sugar already fell.

    He’s not pre-diabetic or diabetic, so he’s going to experience normal
    reactions. Jumping his blood sugar over 20 points is NOT a good thing. A
    pre-diabetic or diabetic should NEVER spike 20 points.

    Believe me, if I ate all those bananas, i’d be diabetic now. I brought my
    blood sugar down to normal because I stayed away from bananas and potatoes.
    I ate more fruits and veggies. I still ate chicken then, I ate eggs,
    cheese, milk, dairy, half n half. I lost weight.

    1. On most days, when I just eat a banana during lunch time, my blood sugar
      would approach 200 mg/dL, even 2 hrs afterwards. I’m diabetic btw,

  9. I’m on your side Andrew, but my friend issued some comments when I showed
    her this video. We need to address her issues and set her straight. Should
    you have taken your postprandial reading sooner, like one-half-hour after
    your meal? (Her comments follow below)

  10. This guy doesn’t know it but he is hypoglycemic as a result of
    hyperinsulinemia.
    That is a precursor of diabetes type 2.

    If he would be able to measure his insulin levels he would probably be
    admitted in a hospital.

    Listen to what he said I ate 2 more bananas after that because I was
    feeling hungry.
    That is not normal either.

    When you feel hungry it means your blood sugar has dropped too low.

    For ex I have the same problem as this guy when I get close to 70 i feel
    hungry and i have brain fog.
    If it gets lower I feel horriblle

    I WOULD RECOMMEND YOU DO A HYPOGLYCEMIA TEST WHERE YOU DRINK 100 GRAMS OF
    SUGAR IN A 200 ML GLASS OF WATER. AND MEASURE EVERY 30 MINUTES TO 1 HOUR

    IF YOU FEEL FINE ALL THE TIME AND THERE IS NO CRAZY NUMBER TOO HIGH TOO LOW
    AFTER 6 HOURS YOU ARE OK.

    IF YOU FEEL HUNGRY SWEATY , LIGHT HEADED YOU HAVE HYPOGLYCEMIA

    1. Fruit doesn’t cause blood sugar spikes and dips in the same way that
      consuming refined sugar with no fiber, fat, protein and micronutrients
      does. They digest differently. That’s why fruit is among the healthiest
      things to consume and soda one of the unhealthiest.

    2. Refined sugar comes from sugar cane or sugar beets, last time I checked
      they are natural occurring plants.

      You don’t know anything about biology.

    3. I agree that fiber slows down the process.
      It is a lot better to eat a whole fruit then a smoothie or fruit juice.

      About the last statment I would say everything in moderation there is no
      food you can really label “healthy”, if you eat too much of any thing you
      will eventually get sick.

      Healthy means Balance , there is no food that is superior , balance is the
      key that I have learned the hard way, and it is so simple and obvious that
      we overlook it.

  11. Nice post, but not conclusive at all because you showed us your glucose at
    2hrs. post prandial. The major spike would have occurred within about an
    hour and you would have been way down after 2hrs if your diet is very low
    fat. I wonder what your a1c is. Remember that test is an indication of
    glycated hemoglobin: the malady which causes premature aging in
    uncontrolled diabetics. There’s evidence that the blood sugar spkes
    (>140) cause destruction of pancreatic beta cells in everyone. The usual
    counter I’ve heard from 8-1-1 type dieters is that since the glucose spikes
    of low fat high carb dieters are transient (due to low fat), that its
    actually not harmful. It’s not a good argument to say “look at me, I’m
    fine” because a)- you’re very young and b)- you don’t know what might be
    going on with your internal organs, such as your pancreas and liver. I
    wonder what your triglycerides are like. Some 8-1-1 dieters have a prob
    with triglycerides, some don’t. Theoretically at least people who have
    high triglycerides are at risk for fatty liver development.

  12. Try doing it with a fruit that has a higher glycemic rating, like
    watermelon. You will be over 120 within 2 hours.

  13. I also eat a lot of fruit. What about the production of advanced glycation
    end-products from excess sugar intake?

  14. fructose, sucrose, and carbohydrates will have to be processed by the body
    (enzymes>digestion) and convert it to glucose (blood sugar) before it can
    be absorbed. slow process, but very healthy.

  15. Thanks, a friend is diabetic this video should be on a loop in every Dr.
    office. He never was given this good info.

  16. I feel like your blood glucose response was not typical. I have been vegan
    for 12 weeks and losing weight. I find that my morning readings are higher
    than yours and my insulin response to eating goes up more than yours. I
    dont think you’ve ever had serious weight issues and have probably not
    developed any insulin resistance. Most people who have been over weight and
    turning to veganism for weight loss and increased health will have a level
    of insulin resistance and wont have that small increase of a response that
    you had . I have to watch the amount of fruit I eat in order to keep my
    readings lower. Lots of fruit in the day will give me a 2 hour after eating
    level of 150.
