Fruit, Glorious Fruit and Weight Loss
Fruit is one of the most important things to include in your diet. In This Blog I am going to give you 5 Fruits which will benefit your weight loss journey!
1 – Fruit, Glorious Fruit and Weight Loss: Apples
Apples are rich in antioxidants and phytonutrients that fight free radicals. They’re also packed with vitamins and dietary fibre to keep you full. In one study, non-smoking women between the ages of 30-50 were randomly assigned one of three dietary supplements, adding 3 apples per day to their diets, 3 pears per day, or 3 oat cookies per day. Of course, you’d expect the fruit group to lose more weight than the oat cookies group, and this was the case. The fruit group lost a pound on average more than the oat group. That’s a small difference, but when you consider the other added benefits of fruit, it shows that having something packed with fibre is especially helpful.
2 – Fruit, Glorious Fruit and Weight Loss: Bananas
Bananas are one powerful fruit. When it comes to weight loss, I like to eat a banana in between meals like breakfast or lunch. This gives me the energy I need to make it to my next meal and banishes my cravings for sweets.
3 – Fruit, Glorious Fruit and Weight Loss; Blueberries
The deep blue colour that comes from blueberries lets you know that they are rich in antioxidants that ward off free radicals. And they’re also great for weight loss. Thanks to the combination of fibre and water found in blueberries, they’re an excellent choice to help slim down by reducing appetite. I like to add blueberries to my smoothies, salads, or on top of my oatmeal.
4 – Fruit, Glorious Fruit and Weight Loss: Grapefruit
If you can get past the super tartness of grapefruit, you’ll be well on your way to quick weight loss. One study examined 91 obese patients and split them into four groups. One group was given a placebo, one received grapefruit capsules, one had to drink grapefruit juice, and the last group ate fresh grapefruits. The participants had to consume their allocated supplements three times a day before each meal over 12 weeks. The results? The fresh grapefruit group lost the most weight, the grapefruit juice drinkers came in second place, and the capsule consumers fared better than the placebo takers. The reason for this is probably that the grapefruit eaters got more whole fibre, which generally helps control appetite better than plain juice. If it’s hard for you to enjoy the tartness of fresh grapefruit slices, try blending them in smoothies.
5 – Fruit, Glorious Fruit and Weight Loss: Oranges
Eating oranges more often can help you get the vitamins you need because they provide significant amounts of folate (Vitamin B9) and vitamin C. They can be a good choice if you are on a weight-loss diet, since they are fat-free, low in calories and energy density, and high in filling fibre.
