I can't of course speak for anyone else, but just one small Mandarin orange or wedge of watermelon and my body says, "That's real sugar! Where's the rest of the bowl of it?" so I don't eat those anymore. And it isn't just the sweet taste; I can eat stevia-sweetened home made low carb desserts and no reaction. Somehow my body knows when the sugar's for real or not.

My body does too; fruit and low-fat frankenfoods are full of fructose, which can raise insulin levels without raising blood glucose.
