Although it’s still spring, the very high temperatures already drift our thoughts to summer, sea and holidays. If you already started getting ready for this period, dropping down a few extra kilograms may be on your list of priorities.
Today we’ll check out some of the best fruits that will help you in your weight loss journey, while keeping you healthy and fresh!
Apples are the perfect snack, as many of us would agree. Rich in fiber, they provide you with a feeling of satiety that will last a long time. You can bring them with you anywhere and anytime, they can get very versatile in culinary combinations, you can enjoy them in smoothies and natural juices, together with flakes, oats, salads, or even some more consistent preparations.
Many people consider that apples are the perfect fruit to lose weight. Scientists have actually discovered that consuming 3 apples a day can help you lose weight. Just make sure you don’t have too many of them!
Watermelons are made of 90% water, and have plenty of diuretic and dietetic properties that will help you flush out toxins out of your body while making you feel saturated. Researchers at the University of Kentucky found that consuming watermelon can improve liquid profiles, and lower fat accumulation. Furthermore, other researches found that watermelon juice can help reduce muscle soreness levels, which is even better news!
If you’re trying to lose weight, watermelon can help you. It will also keep your body hydrated, which is extremely important when getting rid of excessive fat. Just make sure you don’t have too much, as watermelons also contain some sugar.
The avocado fruit is extremely rich in Omega 9 fatty acids, accelerates metabolism, burns fat deposits, and increases our energy. These are plenty of reasons to include avocados in your diet, don’t you think? Thus, not only will you lose a few extra pounds, but you will also feel energetic during this diet — and as everyone that has gone through a diet knows, losing weight could make you feel tired every now and then.
In addition, let’s not forget that the avocado is also a very versatile fruit, so you can consume it in a lot of ways. As a snack, in sauces, smoothies or even integrated into main dishes, avocado is a great option!
While these fruits are healthy, tasty and full of minerals, vitamins and antioxidants, when you eat them matters a lot, too!
It is best to have 2-3 servings of fruit per day (depending on your height, weight and level of activity) and to consume them mainly before doing a demanding activity (going to work, working out, or even going for a walk).
