Being slim and eating fruit seem to be perfectly compatible concepts. However, there are exceptions. Ironically, it is fruits that are excluded from many diets.
The first thing you need to pay attention to is how many calories the foods contain, the second thing is the amount of fat. However, there are other important factors that should be taken into consideration when planning your diet.
It is tasty. It is often consumed by athletes. But! This fruit is high in calories. It contains 227 calories in just 100 g, and the weight of one avocado is about 300 g on average. It contains a lot of fat: 17-20 g per each 100 g of weight.
Delicious, rich in potassium, but also very high-calorie. They contain many carbohydrates in the form of sugars. Not so long ago, scientists came up with another argument to think about: bananas contain the ingredients that block the process of splitting fat for a few hours! Another disadvantage of this fruit is its high glycemic index. This shows the ability of carbohydrates to quickly get converted into glucose in the blood.
In general, pears are not as “dangerous”, as the previous two fruits, but in large quantities they have a negative impact on the intestine due to the astringent effect. At least, it is not recommended to eat pears for breakfast not to hinder the work of the gastrointestinal tract for the whole day.
They contain a lot of sugars. The process of digesting grapes is delayed because of their skin.
Melon has many simple carbohydrates. If the energy, accumulated after digesting it, is not spent – for example, by means of sports activities – these carbohydrates will be deposited on the sides.
Everybody knows perfectly well that apples are good for dieting. They are low in calories and high in fiber, as well as iron and other minerals. When choosing fruits for diet, you may also pay attention to kiwi and pineapple, which contribute to burning fat. In this regard, citrus fruits such as oranges and less sweet grapefruits will also be helpful.
