I've been Zoning for about 2 weeks now and feel great. But just have a quick question about sugar. Is there such thing as good sugar if sowhat foods is it in, and how do I find out if a food has it.

Good sugar is in low-carb-density vegetables, berries, and fruits.

How can something low in carbs be a good source of sugar?

good sugar is glucose, the bad sugar is fructose (although it's not that bad). Look at the glycmic index for fruit. The lower the glycemic index, the higher percentage of frutose.

Charlie
In the "zone" context of the Joe's question Pat's answer makes sense.

Take blue berries for instance
Low gi, low gl, high fiber, high nutrient density, good glucose to fructose ratio, antioxidant, and anti inflammatory factors to boot.

Thats a nice way to package your sugar

Stevia is a good natural sweetner. No calories or GI.
