  • If you make dried fruit at home and not buy the store bought, it’s very good for you. Anything pre-made, shipped in bulk, and sold retail has chemicals and preservatives. I can hardly eat pre-packaged foods anymore. I make everything from scratch from breads, to snacks, to meals. I hardly used boxed anything! Most of that stuff is rough to digest. So I get where this guy is coming from, but to say it’s all bad would be wrong. Too many anti-sugar advocates. Fruit sugar is fine. Everything in moderation. Look we’re all going to die. No one is going to outlive death. Enjoy yourself but be smart so that you feel good.

  • Hey there, have you seen Lean Body Maximizer? (search for it on google) You will discover the crimes we commit against our bodies. With “Lean Body Maximizer”, you will discover how to burn calories fast.

  • The dried cranberries in my cupboard have added sugar but if you dry fruit yourself you do not need to add sugar. We were traveling last week and I ate some homemade dried persimmons. I think it was a good snack choice.

  • The body creates its own cholesterol… stop eating animals… eat those ripe bananas, order lots of fresh dates, throw some straches/legumes/veggiez in a slow cooker, eat some fruits in season & most important MOVE YOUR ASS you gatta chare the body UP

  • Of course the keto guy says dried fruit is unhealthy. Keto is a hack; it works for some by having your body run on ketones as a fuel alternative. It’s just that though…AN ALTERNATIVE!! Our natural fuel source is carbohydrates; that is scientific fact. Carry on ��

  • I buy dried prunes and apricots with no added preservatives or sugar, and both of those have high potassium, which is something a large portion of humanity is short of.

  • Freeze-dried foods of fruits and vegetables made by natural cultivation have already been completed. It can be easily returned to the original state with water, and the taste and mouthfeel are restored to the original state. Those dried fruits and dried vegetables whose cells have not been destroyed can be stored for a long period of two to three years, and are expected to save the future of food shortages.

  • Automatic thumbs down ��
    1. You automatically lost all credibility by saying “dried fruit is the worst snack”
    2. There are A TON of dried fruit options out there that do not contain added sugars or preservatives.

    This information is very misleading.

  • …yes that’s on the ingredients label all that added sugar. People can read the label �� I have a dehydrator. And I understand it’s not a typical house hold appliance but we dehydrate food all the time and don’t add anything to the fruit other than fresh lemon juice to keep the fruit from Browning.

  • My mom cut freash pineapple she cut the skin and i ate it and it poked my mouth and it just keeps on hurting me and my mom just said to eat suger

  • I eat prunes in small servings so the GL of my servings never go over 5. That’s the same GL as berries. Prunes keep me regular so i’ll continue to enjoy them

  • I want to tell everyone that potatoes, fruit, and starch doesnt spike blood sugar:) I tested it with myself and my blood levels remained even in the perfect range of fasting glucose levels. However maybe it can vary from individual to individual. So far I tested several fruits, sweet and plane potatoes, rice crackers with peanut butter (peanut butter may have something to do with it)

  • Anything consumed in incorrect quantities tends to be unhealthy. Dried fruit is NOT a “convenience food”.
    I dehydrate bananas to prevent them from ripening excessively and keep them for extended periods of time. Same with apples. If you know how many chips equal one fruit then there is no problem whatsoever. And yes, anything store bought and processed is a gamble in itself.
    This video generalizes. And that is just as bad as no information at all.

  • My father is a lawyer and he don’t eat anything throughout his working time, plz suggest me some gd dried fruits mixture for my father. Dr plz give your suggestions

  • Great video content! Forgive me for the intrusion, I would appreciate your initial thoughts. Have you ever tried Melubras Physique Patenier (search on google)? It is a smashing one of a kind product for getting a flatter belly fast without the headache. Ive heard some super things about it and my mate after a lifetime of fighting got amazing results with it.
