Fruits are always recommended for a balanced diet. However, if you want to lose weight, there are certain fruits that you should favor and others you should avoid. Indeed, the sugar (fructose) contained in fruits can slow down weight loss or even promote weight gain. Here are 6 fruits that you should eat to favor weight loss.
Apples are a great ally for anyone who wants to go on a diet. They are both an excellent appetite suppressant, thanks to their satiating fibers which contain pectin and their low calorie content. 100 grams of apple provide only 52 calories.
The nutritional benefits of apples are no longer to be proven. There is even a diet based on apples.
While mangoes taste very sweet, they are 82% water, which makes these exotic fruits a great diet snack.
A mango weighs around 200 grams, but mangoes are very low in calories; 100 grams of mango provide 60 calories.
In addition, mangoes are also a real cocktail of vitamins and among all their virtues, they help stabilize blood sugar levels and lower cholesterol levels.
A study shows that eating a mango 30 minutes before a meal helps to lose weight.
Lemon is an excellent detoxifier. If it does not make you lose weight, strictly speaking, it helps boost the body because it acts on several levels.
The white part of the lemon helps for example to slow down the passage of fats and sugars in the body thanks to pectin, while the lemon juice itself stimulates gastric juices and promotes the transformation of dopamine and serotonin, two hormones that regulate the feeling of hunger.
Ideally, to benefit from all its virtues, it would be necessary to make a lemon cure twice a year according to nutritionists.
Calorie wise, a lemon contains only 20 calories per 100 grams. In other words, it is truly the ultimate slimming fruit!
A summer fruit par excellence, melon is also the ideal fruit for losing weight. Composed mainly of water, it contains only 34 calories per 100 gr. In addition to being detoxifying, it is also a diuretic and thus helps in the elimination of toxins.
Like lemon, grapefruit is an excellent booster for the body. Composed of 90% water, it is an excellent natural fat burner, in particular, thanks to the naringin flavonoids it contains, an organic compound that gives grapefruit its slimming power, but also thanks to naringenin, which would have a preventive effect on overweight.
In addition to being high in fiber, a grapefruit contains barely 39 calories. Grapefruit is also a real cocktail of vitamins, especially vitamin C, which helps to secrete a hormone that stimulates weight loss.
This red fruit that everyone loves is extremely low in calories (barely 38 calories per 100 g of raspberry). Obviously, to benefit from its benefits, you have to eat them without sugar and plain. Raspberries are also rich in vitamins since 100 g of raspberry constitutes almost 25 mg of vitamin C or about 1/3 of the daily recommended intake.
The grains found in raspberries are rich in cellulose, a nutrient that helps fight constipation and promotes digestion. Easy and practical to eat, raspberries are therefore one of those fruits that can be eaten without moderation.
