10 Fruits that can help you lose weight

Losing weight doesn’t have to mean just eating less. To lose weight, you need to burn more calories than you are eating and one easy way to reduce your calorie intake is to replace the unhealthy snacks that you may be eating during the course of a day with the healthier option – fruit.

Losing weight isn’t the only benefit to be gained by eating more of fresh fruits, not only most fruits are low in calories and high in fiber, fruits also contain a whole host of vitamins and minerals that are essential to our wellbeing and help ward off cancer and other chronic diseases. Let’s look at 10 fruits that can help you lose weight:

1. Apples and Pears

An apple a day keeps the doctor away and it’ll help you lose weight too. Apples and pears assist with weight loss in two ways: both are high in fiber, which will help you feel full and increase the metabolic rate to help burn the fat and they are both also high in pectin, which helps stop the cells of the body from absorbing fat and water.

2. Avocado

Avocado is brimming with Omega 9 fatty acids, the same as is found in olives and some nuts. These fatty acids speed up the process of converting fat into energy and boost the rate of the metabolism.

3. Lemons

The liver is one of the organs of the body that help us to burn fat and lemons are great for the liver. Although they taste acidic, lemons actually help to alkalize our body and make the liver to function more effectively.

 4. Coconut

Coconut, has many benefits. As well as filling you up and helping you to avoid the temptation to eat an unhealthy snack, it is also rich in what is known as medium chain triglycerides, which are proven to increase the livers rate of metabolism by up to thirty percent.

5. Pomegranate

A glass of pomegranate juice will help get rid of unwanted toxins in your body and boost metabolism. Pomegranates are also known to lower the appetite and help to stop the build-up of lipids in the arteries.

6. Tomatoes

Tomatoes are rich in vitamin C and stimulate production of an amino acid called carnitine, which speeds up the fat burning ability of the body by over thirty percent.

7. Grapefruit

There have been many studies that have confirmed that eating grapefruit aids the weight loss process. It’s nutritious, tasty and some people have claimed to have lost weight by just adding a daily intake of grapefruit to their diet.

8. Blueberries

Consuming just a small amount of blueberries a day can help you lose weight, according to some studies. The high level of antioxidants in these berries can also help to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease. This is, by the way, one of the most favorite snacks of model and Victoria’s Secret Angel Adriana Lima.

9. Bananas

The healthy fibers in bananas curb the appetite and help you to burn off the fat. The potassium in bananas also helps the body burn fat, as well as aiding the development of muscles.

10. Oranges

The more vitamin C you consume, the more fat your body can oxidize, and there aren’t many fruits with more vitamin C, than oranges.  As well as vitamin C, oranges are also high in antioxidants which promote a healthy metabolism and are beneficial for the beauty and youth of your skin.
