Thanks to Levels for sponsoring this video. To get started, go to and get 2 additional months free on the annual Levels membership.

Using a continuous glucose monitor from Levels, I tested my blood sugar after eating five popular fruits: a banana, strawberries, grapes, an apple, and an orange. How do you think they will match up? I share my results in the video.

  • I read somewhere that you should eat the fastest digestible food first. So that would mean eating the fruit then your meal. Do you think either way would effect blood sugar in a significant amount?

  • I use a finger stick and I’ve found the strawberries almost don’t touch my glucose and apples spike it hard. I wonder why we are so different

    • Different metabolisms, different foods paired with the fruits, different types of apples…There are many factors involved, so it is good that you test yourself to see how you respond.

  • Never liked fruit. One of the happiest days of my life when I figured out I didn’t need to eat any. Good info for those that do though.
