Fruits That Promote Weight Loss

The Fruits Themselves.

Fruits that promote weight lossHey! Welcome to Bloggers4freedom, I am so happy that you have found me and I hope you enjoy my first post. I grew up in a family that promoted healthy eating. However, they only told me how to eat the same way they were told to eat when they were young; eat your vegetables, do not drink soda, don’t eat candy, eat a piece of fruit everyday. You were probably told something similar when you were young as well, which is great until you actually need to lose weight. It turns out that there are some fruits that promote weight loss and other fruits that do not promote weight loss. AKA… just because it is a fruit does not mean it is going to help you lose weight! I love bananas, I would eat them everyday and actually have done so.

Fruits That Promote Weight Loss- Ingredients

Bananas are loaded with potassium and vitamins but they also contain about 15 grams of sugar a piece which is about the same as a chocolate bar. That being true, bananas are not fruits that promote weight loss. Sugar, if eaten the incorrect way, can be so bad for you that people will cut it out of their diet completely. “Sugar Cleanses” as they are frequently called, can be a few day diet change to a permanent diet change. Dr Oz and Ellen DeGeneres have both recommended sugar cleanses and a key to healthier living. Both speak highly of the removal of sugar from their diets. Fortunately, many fruits contain naturally occurring sugars that are not toxic to your body in small quantities. Research has shown that sugar can be addictive. Once you start having a sugary diet, it can be extremely hard to change.

Types Of Fruits That Promote Weight Loss

Fruits that promote weightloss- strawberryThe fruits that promote weight loss are generally fruits that contain more water and are less dense. However, the most important thing to think about is the portion of fruit. Twenty or thirty blue berries sounds like a lot but it is just a handful and would be very healthy, eating the entire container would leave you with an upset stomach. You could apply the same theory to the banana (only eat half or a quarter of a banana), doing so would allow you to have more options of fruits that promote weight loss.  More so, different fruits contain different vitamins and minerals, eating small amounts of a variety of fruits a day will ensure that you lose weight while maintaining the balanced levels of the vitamins that your body needs to function. I suggest you make a low fat fruit salad:

  • Remove the skin, chop and stir the following ingredients together in a bowl. This recipe makes 4 servings, so add lemon juice to preserve the salad. Eat one serving every morning.
    • 1 Apple
    • 1 pear
    • 2 Grapefruits
    • 2 Oranges

Why Fruits That Promote Weight Loss

Fruits Promote Weight Loss because the body needs vitamins and minerals to survive. Simple fruits can prevent all types of disease from occurring in the body. For example, Sailors in the 18th century would become lethargic, get bumps all over their bodies, lose their teeth and limbs and would eventually die. It was later discovered, the disease, known as scurvy was caused by a simple vitamin C deficiency which can easily be avoided by eating citrus. British sailors began to consume limes on a daily basis to combat this disease which is why they were referred to as limeys. In conclusion the power of fruits is something to marvel. There are fruits that promote weight loss and fruits that stop sailors from a grisly death at sea. As we study fruit we find more and more health benefits and reasons to keep them in our diet, if not make them a major part of our diets.
