I'm definitely sensitive to fructose and need to limit it. Does anyone know how much acorn squash contains? I'm not sure if it is all glucose, fructose, a mix of the two, nor even how much sugar is in acorn squash to begin with.

Squash are awesome if you are low carb, they pack a lot of nutrition, flavor and sweetness even though they have a negligible amount of carbs. You could eat quite a lot of it before reaching 50g net carbs (which tends to be my personal limit). (more)

Just eat real food. Strawberries are real, whole food. Just don't add an assload of table sugar to them like most folks do. (Yes, that means I support adding any amount up to an assload of sugar to strawberries.)
