Most of us know that fruits are an essential part of a healthy lifestyle. A healthy life style is achieved through a balanced diet which can help us to lose weight through appropriate meals. But the problem is that there are a lot of choices in the fruits that we have to make. If we go to a super market, the sections are filled up with various types of fruits and thus the confusion arises which type of fruit will enable us to lose weight rapidly.
Like for example, many people avoid bananas, sweet corns etc. thinking that they are fattening and will add up to our weight. While there are others who think that grapefruit, lemon and other citric fruits can help lose weight effectively.
What’s the Truth about fruit and Veg?
Consuming a lot of fruits is vital for both, a healthy lifestyle and to lose weight. Most of the fruits are low-calorie, have less content of fat in them and are high in fibre content. These three are the most important ingredients for a rapid weight loss. Whereas most of them contain ample amount of vitamins, antioxidants and minerals which are of equal importance to remain healthy and fight diseases.
Research also reveals that we tend to consume same amount or volume of food daily without knowing the amount of calories that we are consuming. So if we are planning to lose weight then it is essential to replace our high calories meal with the one with low calories to complete this daily volume that we intake. Now here is where the fruits play a role in our diet to achieve the goal of losing weight.
Several fruits weigh a lot, thus they can be added in our diet to fill our stomach with the equal volume of meal that is to be consumed without even adding up to the calories. For example a meal which has 100g of grilled chicken, 250g of potatoes, 30g of butter, 20g of low fat cheese sums up to a total weight of 400g and provides 700g of calories. Now if you replace it with a meal consisting 80g of chicken, 100g of potatoes, 10g of butter, 50g of broccoli, 50g of salad and 110g of fruits then the total volume will remain the same i.e. 400g but the calorie that it will provide will reduce down to 300g.
Crux: Your stomach will feel as filled up as you have consumed the same volume of food but you will be able to save 400g of calories which will enable you to lose around half pound per week without even lessening the quantity of your meal!
