Apples are full of nutritional benefits hence the saying ‘an apple a day keeps the doctor away’. Besides boosting your immune system, reducing the risk of cancer and whitening your teeth, an apple will also help you lose weight. It is high in fiber making you feel full and it is also low in calories making it an ideal fruit for shedding weight.

2. Water melon

This is the best fruit to grab when you are hungry yet on a weight loss diet. It’s low in calories and also keeps you hydrated thanks to its highly succulent nature. It’s also rich in amino acid arginine which aids in burning fat.

3. Avocado

Adding an avocado to your meal or replacing your meal with it is an excellent way to help you lose weight. It decreases the desire to snack between meals as it gives you a filling effect. Avocados are also enriched with omega 9 fatty acids and they speed up the metabolism rate by burning fat. If you cannot take them with a meal, make a salad or guacamole.
