    Did you go to school with Dr. Mehmet Oz? I usually find your blog useful - but this post and your backing of it completely nullifies any credibility I thought you had. ALL carbs - strawberries AND donuts turn into glucose in the body. You only need so much glucose in the body at a time. Obiously if you eat too many donuts vice too many strawberries the impacts are different - but too much fruit will add pounds. For the average person who just wants to squeeze into jeans this is OK advice - but for an athlete it's bogus.
