Fruit diet plan to Lose weight
Fruit sometimes gets a bad rap in the weight loss world because it has sugar. However,fruit contains many nutrients that are beneficial to your health and can help create satiety,which is infinitely better for you than many other choices.
A proper diet usually falls back to the idea of balance,but it does pay to be cautious when you’re working on getting leaner to achieve your weight loss goals. So,our experts give their tips on what to add to your diet and what to avoid in terms of fruit to maintain the healthiest diet possible to reach your goals.
Best Fruits For Weight Loss #1 – Strawberries
I think eating fruit in moderation is great for fat loss because it can effectively help control calorie intake while providing essential vitamins and minerals. My top 3 favorite fruits are strawberries,apples,and grapefruits. A cup of strawberries only has 50 calories and 7 grams of sugar,yet provides 3 grams of fiber. What I also love about strawberries (and all berries) is they satisfy your sweet/sugar cravings as well,and they boast a very impressive nutrient profile.An apple is only 100 calories,is easy to carry around,and makes a great pre-workout snack. After that is grapefruit because it has been shown to help control blood sugar,it really helps fill you up,and I love the taste (See: Healthy Breakfast Ideas).

Best Fruits For Weight Loss #2 – Berries
Berries such as blueberries,blackberries,and raspberries are packed full of nutrients and are lower in sugar than other types of fruit such as mangos or bananas. That’s why berries are often lauded as great fat-burning foods. However,fruit in general can help people achieve their fat loss goals. Fruits are nutrient-dense and low calorie,and they help keep a sweet-tooth under control.The fiber in fruit helps with satiety and also slows down the digestion and absorption of fructose,the fruit sugar. With all the vitamins,minerals,and anti-oxidants they provide,fruit is a great food to incorporate into your diet.

Best Fruits For Weight Loss #3 – Any Fruit
Any fruit is my short answer. Fruits tend to be about 100 calories per serving,don’t spike insulin very high,tend to be high in fiber,are generally a decent source of vitamins and are filling for the amount of calories they contain. I personally like berries,such as blueberries,blackberries,raspberries,etc and organic apples,but really all the fruits have different advantages and eating an overall variety throughout the week can be beneficial.

Best Fruits For Weight Loss #4 – Avocado
Although fruits are highly nutritious and tasty in most cases they won’t necessarily help with fat-loss even though they are part of an overall healthy diet. One fruit that may in fact help with fat-loss in most people are avocados. Most people follow a restricted carbohydrate diet but fail to increase their fat content to keep their bodies and metabolisms operating optimally. Per fruit,avocados have about 20 grams of healthy fats which over the course of a day is relatively low. Higher fat will not only increase metabolism but also increase testosterone levels which is one of the main hormones responsible in fat loss for both men AND women.

Weight loss question2006-02-14 04:51:58 by newgrrrl
Ok, I have a question. I have been trying to lose some weight, but I have decided not to diet. What I mean is that I'm watching my portions, eating low fat when I can and consuming more fruit and veggies. But at the same time I've decided to not count calories or use any kind of meal plan. In my past experience going on a diet leads to obsessing about calories, frustration and then quitting all together. Anyway, I've been pretty careful, just not crazy about it.
I have worked my way up to doing 60 minutes of cardio 3x a week at the gym over the past month. Plus I do another short workout once a week (20-40 minutes of jogging outside)
Weight loss/straight hair response!2005-01-12 19:15:39 by chicnyclady
Hi clumsygrace --
I actually have answers to both of your questions!
1. This is a sure fire method for quick weight loss (please, if someone intends to lecture me on health, safety, etc., please refrain and don't read on!...) that being said: go on a liquid diet for 2 days (plan these days so that you can mostly relax and lay low -- don't work out). In place of your 3 meals, drink 16 oz. of fruit/veg juice, i.e. tomato, cucumber melon, veggie, whatever you like (best to home blend it). In between, drink hot glasses of water with lemon, this aids with cleansing your system (and whetting your appetite)
I make my own diet plan2004-09-28 09:20:39 by BothFeet
I pretty much know what I need to cut out when I start packing on pounds so I don't follow a set diet plan. If I eat a lot of take out, fast food, fried foods, pasta, etc ... I start to put on weight. If I cut back on those things I start to lose weight.
For dinner most nights I have lean meats as suggested by South Beach and fresh vegetables. I bring leftovers to work. I don't bother myself with worrying if the vegetables I am eating are too high in carbs. I figure vegies are just good for me. I eat fruit for desserts. I cut back things I love like white bread with lots of butter, tortillas, pasta
It's not an argument of weight loss2010-11-01 19:25:19 by wildwestzona
We are not arguing weight loss, we all know that low carb will cause weight loss, that is undeniable. Not sure what your point is.
But then what? what about 5 years, 10 years, 20 years later. It's about adopting a healthy lifestyle that includes low stress, eating a balance nutritional plan, exercise, sleep, water, etc.... You tell someone to do no carb diet and what do you tell them? You tell them that they will lose weight, but will gain it back when they go back to eating regularly. Otherwise, they have to continue to NOT eat fruit, vegies, and whole grains, but then their cholesterol will shoot through the roof and put them at risk for MAJOR health complications 10 years, 20 years down the road
