The following chart explains why vegetables are better than fruits. The red line reports the amount of carbohydrates in fruits. The yellow line reports the amount of carbohydrates in vegetables. Fruits generally contain more carbohydrates than vegetables. That means that fruits will be used to produce a higher level of blood sugar (glucose) than vegetables. It is generally better to keep fresh blood sugar at a lower rather than higher rate of influx. Coincidentally, this analysis is somewhat consistent with the Atkins diet.
