If you want to lose weight in a natural manner it’s important that you have plenty of fruits in your diet that will help you achieve this goal. One mistake a lot of people make when they go on a diet they often don’t include enough fruits and this shouldn’t be the case. In fact, fruits that help you lose weight will also help to boost your nutrition, adds more fiber and they simply taste great.
Below you will find my top favorite fruits that I make sure I include in my own diet every day in order to stay lean and fit:
Who doesn’t love strawberries? Just for the flavor alone you should include these in your diet whenever you can. They are filled with vitamin C and one cup of them only contain 50 calories. Not only are they low in calories but one cup easily helps you meet your daily requirement needs for your vitamin C. They are also versatile because you can eat them alone, put them on cereal, put in yogurt, or add them to your favorite salad.
I love blackberries for a variety of reasons but one big reason is that they contain cancer fighting compounds. They are definitely a must eat fruit if you want to lose weight. They are very high in fiber so they’ll also help to fill you up quickly. Blackberries are often an overlooked fruit but they should be included in your diet on a regular basis. They can be eaten alone or you can add them to cereal and other foods.
Blueberries are one of the best ways to get those antioxidants that your body needs to help fight off those free radicals you’ve got circulating around in your body. Blueberries are a great snack any time of day or you can put them in your cereal for breakfast or add them to salads at lunch and dinner. They also work well in yogurt and baked goods.
Yet another great fruit for weight loss. These little berries are especially good for anyone who might be struggling with controlling their blood glucose levels. They also are very high in fiber and extremely low in natural sugar.
No matter what kind of a diet you might be on, grapefruit should always be a big part of that diet. They are extremely low in calories and very high in vitamin C. In fact grapefruit tends to be associated with most healthy diets that you see out there. This great citrus fruit simply has two very important characteristics that are vital for great nutrition and proper health.
No healthy diet should be without apples. Not only is there a great variety to choose from they contain pectin and this is a compound that helps to reduce your appetite. By reducing your cravings to eat more you are bound to lose some weight in the process. Apples are something you should try to eat on a daily basis. You can eat them raw or cooked and they can be eaten morning, noon, and night.
No diet would be complete without including oranges. Not only are they a top source for large amounts of vitamin C they also are low in calories and only contain 50 to 60 calories per orange depending on their size. They are a very convenient fruit because you can take them anywhere with you and enjoy them at anytime or anyplace.
By now, most people should know that avocados are actually considered a fruit and not a vegetable. One of the main reasons avocados are on my list is because they contain very high levels of the healthy fats that we all need in our diet. Along with containing fats we need they also help to curb your appetite and stabilize your blood sugar levels. So, don’t be afraid to add these to your diet when trying to lose weight.
Watermelon is ideal for a good diet because it’s one of those fruits that are super sweet and make a wonderful weight loss snack. They are extremely low in calories so you can eat quite a bit of it. It’s the perfect fruit treat to eat when you are craving something sweet. Watermelon also helps support a healthy immune system and is rich in vitamin C.
Now here’s a fruit a lot of people totally overlook. Peaches are very high in fiber and have a good amount of vitamin A. They are also very sweet and give you yet another fruit that you can substitute for that sweet snack you might be craving. They are great to eat alone or slice them and put them on cereal. You can also find plenty of recipes you can put them in.
Well, there you have my top favorite fruits to help you lose weight. I hope that you will consider adding these wonderful gifts from nature in your daily diet plan. You won’t be disappointed.
