Just a quick background -- I am a 5 feet 7 inches tall Asian Indian. I weighed 84 Kgs circa 2009-10. But with regular exercises and by changing my eating habits, I lost about 30 kgs over the past 3 - 4 years. I stopped using ANY oil in cooking and also stopped consuming sugar and salt at home. However, I used to eat Indian food once or twice a week where I would get some sugar, salt, and oil. After reading The China Study and 80/10/10 Diet, I have become a low-fat raw vegan since two weeks.
Here are my 2 questions:

1) Banana and Blood Glucose - Today I had a kale and banana smoothie with 5 medium (7") and 5 small (6") bananas. Before lunch, my blood glucose was 89. Two hours after lunch, it was 160 and 3 hours after lunch it was 125. I didn't have any fat food (not even avocado or nuts) in the past 7 days. I thought for a normal person the blood glucose after 2 hours should be less than 120 and it should fall to pre-lunch level after 3 hours.

Last week I had 8 small bananas and a handful of grapes for dinner and the next day my fasting blood glucose was 108. Usually it is 95.

Do these "abnormal" blood glucose readings indicate that I should not eat so many bananas? Would this eventually lead me to Type 2 diabetes?

2) Apples for monomeal - I like apples. In the last 2 weeks, I had a monomeal of 5 medium apples for my breakfast thrice. However, I don't remember reading ANYTHING on apples in the 80/10/10 Diet book. Not even a single recipe contains an apple. Is there any specific reason Dr Graham didn't include apples? Do you guys eat monomeal of apples too?
