Weight loss : Yes, fruits have sugar. Vegetables have less but both fruits and vegetables have carbs, wt loss depends more on total amount of calories you eat.

YES,choose low glyc.: All sugars are carbs (though not all carbs are sugars). Minimizing sugar is crucial for weight loss. Some fruits have much more sugar than others. Glycemic index measures how much a food raises blood sugar. Dates actually raise blood sugar more than pure sugar! low-glycemic fruits like berries, cherries ; apples can be eaten in moderation; avoid high-glycemic fruits. See http://abt.Cm/1qoyvhx.
