One of my friends set out to lose weight by the summer, whatever her cost. In addition to exhausting workouts, she just starved herself. She once denied herself her favorite sweets and even stopped eating fruit, arguing that there is a lot of sugar in them, which means calories.
Fearing for her health and state of mind, I decided to find out if there was any reason to avoid eating fruit while losing weight. What I learned, I was pleasantly surprised. Most of our favorite fruits not only do not harm the beauty of the figure, but also successfully burn fat stores in our body.
Fat Burning Leaders
The grapefruit is in the lead in this list, it also dulls the feeling of hunger, and helps to reduce insulin, and successfully removes toxins our long-suffering organism. But this is an amateur; I personally don’t like it, except as part of a fruit salad.
Two more overseas guests, pineapple and papaya, have a similar effect. They successfully burn fat, besides they have excellent taste. True, in our market it is difficult to find really tasty and ripe specimens, and their price is not low.
Already familiar fruits
Our favorite apples and pears also bring much benefit. Despite their sweetness, they have few calories. But the fiber contained in them allows you to feel satiety for a long time. And the pectin in their composition removes excess fluid from the body. It is better to eat not only the flesh, but also the peel.
It is necessary to diversify your diet with citrus fruits. Orange, lime, lemon, mandarin – the presence of vitamin C in them helps in splitting fats.
Bananas, coconuts, kiwi and pomelo are great helpers in the battle with overweight, they start the process of metabolism and give a feeling of satiety for a long time.
Berries to help
Such berries also deserve attention: raspberry, blackberry, blueberry. They are slowly absorbed by the body, and therefore their beneficial properties act for a long time. And I checked it myself – in the midst of the berry season, I can eat berries all day long without feeling fatigue or hunger.
Having learned all my arguments, a friend listened to them, and her menu was supplemented with a wide selection of fruits. It happened in late autumn, and by the new year the girl easily got rid of half of her extra pounds and felt like a queen at the festival.
