Best Fruits for Weight Loss
Losing weight can be a difficult process, especially if you are struggling with decisions about what to eat and what to avoid. Yet, one of the best ways to integrate weight loss into your regular life is to just keep it simple and eat what you know is healthy. Instead of fad diets or calorie counting plans, sticking to the basics of healthy eating and avoiding greasy, fried and processed foods can itself go a long way towards getting you the body you want.
One of the best choices when it comes to foods is of course fruits and veggies. Fruits especially can give you a nice boost as a snack or after dinner treat without packing on the pounds.
The best fruits when it comes to losing weight are those low density and high water content fruits. When you get a craving for something sweet therefore you can always opt for a nice slice of watermelon, cantaloupe or honeydew. These melons are a great way to curb a sweet tooth craving and keep to your diet plans.
Berries are also great diet fruits. Strawberries, raspberries and blueberries all make a great addition to a smoothie or a yogurt parfait. These colourful fruits are packed with antioxidants and loaded with vitamins and minerals. Vitamin C especially is great for cold and flu season, so adding a few of these delicious berries to your day can also help to ward off any illnesses floating around. You can always load up on frozen berries or buy and store them yourself so that you have fresh berries available all year long.
Citrus fruits are also great choices for vitamin C boosts and can be a tasty weight loss strategy. Vitamin C is actually considered to be a fat fighter itself, one reason why these citrus fruits like oranges, grapefruits and lemons often appear on diet guidelines. Vitamin C can help to reduce fat by aiding in its mobilization and dispersal from the body.
So if you’re looking to keep your diet resolutions but to satisfy a sweet tooth or sugary craving as well, turn to these low fat high impact fruits.
