Wonna shed some pounds? Try this..

Fruits are delicious, succulent, as well as nutritious. Therefore, we should not only eat them because of their sweet and nourishing effect but more because of their nutritional value.

If you are trying to lose weight, here are six fruits you should consider adding to your diet:

1. Apples

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.

4. Oranges

When you are on diet, you are likely to crave for something sweet and this should be the time to grab an orange. By eating an orange, you burn more calories than you consume. They are rich in fiber and speed up your metabolism rate.

5. Grapes

Grapes are highly succulent and therefore keep you hydrated and feeling satisfied. Grapes are also rich in fat-burning enzymes making them ideal for weight loss.

6. Guava

This fruit is rich in fiber and also prevents constipation. The fiber boosts the metabolism rate and bowel movement making it easy to lose weight.
