Hello, welcome to Losing Weight With Pat. This is where you learn the importance of fruit in your diet.
Losing weight is easy and can be fun if you are living right. That means exercise like I wrote in my last post and also eating right. This post will give you an idea of the kind of fruits you should be eating:
Besides Losing weight, these fruits will give you more energy during the day. Also, some of these can burn fat.
Plus, these fruits are the best of all fruits, I’ll save my favorite for last.
Coconut is great and they taste great. They are more of an island fruit. To the islanders, Coconut is more of a delicacy.
Coconut is rich in medium chain triglycerides which increase the liver’s rate of metabolism. The great thing about eating Coconut is they keep you full and you will less likely to snack on junk food and other such snacks.
One tiny ounce of coconut meat carries 185 calories, which 80% (151 calories) comes from fat. You can use Coconut oil to cook your food which is good for weight loss. Also, try putting Coconut oil butter on a bagel, the taste is amazing.
Like the Islanders, use Coconut based food and eat as a snack. You will fall in love with how great they taste.
Studies say that Grapefruit is great for weight food. At John Hopkins University, those who ate Grapefruit shed almost 20 lbs in 13 weeks. That’s without changing their diets. So think what go could do in 10 days if you changed your diet just a little.
If you don’t like eating Grapefruit (they are sour). You can drink it instead. Dieticians say that Grapefruit should be a part of our diets. Also, Grapefruit can help you not gain as much weight if you didn’t drink it. Grapefruit can also keep blood sugar level in check.
Add more Grapefruit juice and cut down on the calorie you eat for every meal.
1 cup of Grapefruit juice has 96 calories, only 0.2 grams of fat. That is amazing. Also, Grapefruit juice is loaded up with Vitamins.
So try drinking Grapefruit juice before every meal. At least for Lunch and Dinner, still drink Coconut or fat-free milk for breakfast. I would recommend the Coconut milk.
Tomatoes are a great source of a fast fat burning fruit. It has Carnitine in it, that speeds the body’s fat-burning capacity by one-third. Now, this might have stumped you. Is tomato a fruit? Tomatoes have seeds, therefore, that makes it a fruit.
Once again, if you don’t like eating Tomatoes, let Tomato juice be an alternative. You can lose an inch off your waistline in no time drinking Tomato juice. Tomatoes can play a keyword in controlling weight gain.
1 medium tomato only has 22 calories in them. Again, amazing 0.2 grams of fat just like Grapefruit. Not as much Protein but it has enough.
Let me recommend eating the salad tomatoes. Their small and taste really good. Eat them for a snack and rotate between Tomato juice and Grapefruit.
Apple’s, what can I say about Apple’s? Everybody or at least almost everybody eats Apple’s.
Apple’s are probably the best fruit to lose weight with. I take an Apple to work almost every day. They consider Apple’s to be part of the superfruit. Being high in fiber and low in calories.
one Medium apple has 95 calories. It has only 0.3 grams of fat. Not that bad.
So remember to eat an Apple when hungry for a snack. Great alternative to all that junk you eat.
Again, this is probably one of the most popular fruit. Bananas are great. They are one of my favorite fruit. High in fiber and potassium will help you with weight loss. They are high in vitamin B6 by 30% of the recommended daily amount. B6 will help boost your immunity and lower your risk of heart disease.
For breakfast, eat a banana. Bananas will make you full. At least, they do me. I drink milk and a Banana for breakfast most of the time.
A little higher in calories, one medium banana has 105 calories and 0.4 grams of fat.
So put down the toast, cereal or bagel. Drink a glass of fat-free milk and a banana for breakfast. It will pay off in the long run.
Strawberries are another great fruit. Thier juicy and great tasting. Strawberries have a production of the hormones adiponectin and leptin. Both of these are fat-burning hormones and metabolic boosters.
Strawberries can slow the rate of digestion of starchy food. This will help to raise blood sugar. They also can help your weight-reducing hormones to function properly.
One medium strawberry has 4 calories and 0 grams of fat. This is outstanding for Strawberries.
So eat Strawberries for a snack and also with most of your meals. Just add a few Strawberries.
I don’t buy many Kiwis, this again is an Islander fruit. When I do buy these, they taste great. I love them. You think about it, I might start putting Kiwi on my shopping list. I really enjoy eating them.
Kiwi is filled with a lot of fibers. This is great for weight loss. Don’t worry about the black seeds found in Kiwi. they are just a great dose of insoluble fiber, which aids in digestion. These little fruits can make you full, staying away from that junk you eat.
One Kiwi has 42 calories and only 0.4 grams of fat. Also, boost your energy level up as do most if not all the fruits you eat.
Add a few Kiwis to your diet and enjoy them.
My Final Words
Remember, next to the exercises you are doing you need to add fruit to your diet. They are good and have a lot of other benefits.
