Fruits are nature’s way of taking care of your weight worries. Yes, you read that right. There are so many ways that grant you the energy, power, and fiber to help you shed that extra weight, especially with the holiday season around the corner. If you find it difficult to lose weight with an exercise program, then binging on these fruits should help you reach your weight loss goals.
Here are some fruits to help you get snacking and lower inching:
The best part about Grapefruit for a layman to understand is that it releases sugar into your bloodstream very slowly. That’s it. This magical fruit has a low-calorie count and a low glycemic index and makes it a great way to lose weight. Eating a whole grapefruit or drinking a grapefruit juice an hour before your meal is a great way not to binge on other foods.
Grapefruit is high in vitamins A and C, helps lower cholesterol levels, trims your waits, and leaves you feeling light and refreshed throughout the day. You cannot go wrong with grapefruit!
Pro Tip: Using a slimming machine along with your grapefruit binge is a great way to accelerate your weight loss plans. Add in exercise, and you’ll be unstoppable.
Apples, like grapefruits, have very low-calorie content. When foods have low-calorie content, they tend to keep you fuller longer and ultimately positively impact your health. If you did not know this, let’s tell you, an apple is almost 3 times more filling than a chocolate bar, and the health benefits are plenty. Apples can be eaten raw or cooked, hot or cold! An apple a day will keep the kilos away!
Fruitip: Apples are best eaten whole and not juiced. Juicing them takes away all their nutrient and vitamin content.
Blueberries, Goji berries, Strawberries, or Cranberries are all great weight loss aids. They can help you burn fat all day long! Berries act as antioxidants and anti-inflammatory agents that also help with reducing your acne problem. If you want a sure-shot remedy to lower your weight, control blood pressure, and help heal inflammation in the body- berries are your go-to buddies!
Snack Tip: Berries are filling snacks. You can make your muesli with a mix of berries to add to your cereal.
4. Passion Fruit
The South-based Passion Fruit has a beautiful purple or reddish coat on the outside and nice, juicy, and pulpy on the inside. This passionate and magical fruit is filled with the goodness of fiber, vitamin C, vitamin A, iron, and potassium. The fiber helps to slow down your digestion rate, keeping you full for more extended periods. The fruit lowers blood pressure and cholesterol levels. Hey, it also tastes G-R-E-A-T!
Passionate Tip: With the passion fruit, do not juice it. Cut up some pieces, add it to sugarless yogurt or some low-fat cream and enjoy it as a dessert.
5. Kiwi Fruit
Brown and furry on the outside and lusciously green on the inside is an excellent source of vitamin C, vitamin E, folate, and fiber and has significant health benefits. It reduces your inches if consumed daily. The sugar content in kiwi fruit is low, making it a low GI index food. It also releases sugar into the bloodstream at a slow-rate. Don’t skip out on the brown skin; that has about 1g of fiber too!
Kiwitastic Tip: A vegetable salad with kiwis adds a lovely sweet touch of juicy goodness to your veggie salad.
Muskmelons and watermelons are sweet and have a low-calorie count. You may have to consume small amounts of these melons, but they aid in weight loss tremendously when done in limited quantities! Consuming fruits with high water content aids your weight loss efforts faster and keeps your skin hydrated and glowing!
We all know the magic of Vitamin C and citrus fruits. Oranges are like fat-melters and skin enhancers. They help you shed those extra pounds and make your skin glow like the fruit itself! If you want to get the maximum benefit from this fruit, it is better to consume it as a whole. Breaking up and orange and making juice lowers the nutritional benefits of the fruit.
Orange Is The New Skinny: You can include oranges in your salad, add in some peanuts, and you won’t stop smacking!
Bananas just add magic and taste to life! They are very nutrient-dense and supply potassium, magnesium, manganese, fiber, numerous antioxidants, and vitamins A, B6, and C. Phew!
