Fresh fruit is a healthy choice and loaded with vitamins and antioxidants; however fruit still contains calories and carbohydrates. These are two things that can hinder you from losing weight if that is your goal. While fruit is a very nutritious food that should be included in a balanced diet, there may come a time when you will need to reduce fruit from your diet due to its sugar content.
Tips to Enjoy Fruit and Still Maintain a Healthy Weight
1. Focus on berries, fibrous, and small fruits. Raspberries, blueberries, strawberries, oranges, papaya and small apples are the kinds of fruits you should reach for first.
2. Enjoy fruits in moderation but focus on eating more vegetables. Fruits are good, but vegetables, especially green leafy or fibrous vegetables, should be a focus on your plan.
3. Limit your carb intake and then move onto fruits. There comes a time in everyone's eating plan when they need to eat less. Always remove the most carbohydrate-dense foods first (as they will be the most calorie-dense of your carbohydrates as well). You'll find that as the carbohydrates and calories in your diet get lower, when you're really starting to hone in on losing the stubborn fat, your fruit intake will be decreased as a function of how you have progressively removed foods from your diet.
