What fruits are the least fattening?

The fruit , to the same as any other food, can contribute to weight gain if we eat too much or if we prepare some not very convenient way (fried plantain with honey, etc …), but the fruits usually contain very few calories so they give us a wide margin with respect to the amount of pieces that we can eat.

In addition, the fruit has a satiating power , due to its high content of water, fiber and sugars that keep our appetite stable and help to avoid hunger attacks or anxiety about food.

Generally we can say that fruits are not the type of food that makes you fat, because their caloric intake is not very high and they do not provide us with saturated fat ; so we can say that fruits are a totally healthy product, that they provide us with a large amount of vitamins and minerals and that their use is fully indicated even when we are following a weight loss diet.

Can I eat all kinds of fruits when I am on a diet?

It is very common to include pieces of fruit in diets, they are rich in vitamins , contain few calories and help us avoid an increase in appetite between meals . Yes, it is true that there are fruits that are better for us when dieting, such as watermelon, pineapple, apple or pear due to their high water content and their satiating and draining powers .

But generally we can eat all kinds of fruit, controlling the consumption of those that give us more sugars such as grapes, custard apple, mango, etcetera; whose caloric intake is higher, but in the same way they can be consumed in moderation.

Myths about fruit

There is a belief around some forbidden fruits if we are doing a weight loss diet, this is the case of figs or figs, which have earned a bad reputation without being true. The fig is a very healthy fruit, satiating and also does not provide a significant number of calories, and yet it is considered a fruit that is very fattening.

Another of the fruits that are usually eliminated from weight loss diets is the banana and it is that it has also earned a fame that does not correspond to it, in fact as you can see in this article on the banana diet , this delicious fruit can help you lose weight. Its high satiating power is highly recommended for weight loss diets, it also has many interesting properties for our health, do not miss it.
