There seems to be a hole in my whole grains.

Total Expenditure for the Day: $6.03
We ended the day with a total family expenditure of $26.15. Ed went over when he at the food provided at the office (we still rung up the expense as if he bought it). Takeout simply is not Eating in 3D friendly.
What’s the dealio with sugar? I understand that we aren’t supposed to suck down sodas, consume large amounts of high-fructose corn syrup or even swig natural fruit juices in high volumes. But what about the sugar that we get from eating fruits, vegetables, and drinking milk? Clearly, all fruits aren't the same. Some have more sugar than others. Does that mean that an apple may not, in fact, be quite as good for you as a strawberry? Or, do the other benefits of fruit – even the sugar ones - offset the amount of sugar they contain?
I consulted the Internet on this topic last night and I found an interesting array of experts and lay folks poo-pooing fruit juices but very few comment on the sugars in actual fruit.
One interesting study from a couple year back conducted across the pond suggests that fructose – the sugar found naturally in fruit - might be more harmful than other types of sugar because it may contribute more heavily (punny) to the 'intra-abdominal fat' weight around the stomach which is linked to diabetes and heart disease.
Researchers are toying with the idea that the number of calories in food might not be as important as the type of sugar it contains.
So?! Should I be concerned about blowing my 40 g of sugar per day to get my 2 servings of fruit and 3 servings of milk? Three 8oz glasses of 2% milk + thee apples add up to 75 g – nearly twice the RDA before you’ve eaten any carbs or vegetables. That’s a pickle.
