Fruits are not only known to be the best natural snacks, but they are also the healthiest foods that you could ever binge eat, which is why we can’t imagine something that healthy to be bad in any way.
Fruits are full of all the necessary nutrients, fiber, and vitamins that our bodies need daily. But, they are also filled with natural sugar that can affect your weight loss process.
However, we are advocating that you should not eat fruits anymore, but you just need to keep a close eye on the sizes and how much you are consuming.
#1 – Canned fruit syrup
Canned fruits are actually pretty healthy and can be very beneficial to our diets. Plus, they are very affordable and available in all stores. But, you still need to avoid the ones that are packed in sweetened syrup. Instead, always seek the ones packed in water or in its own juice. The syrup might be extra delicious, but it will not do justice to your diet.
#2 – Dried fruit
Dried fruits are also very healthy and beneficial since they are a combination of protein and healthy fat. It is actually great to keep a bowl at your office’s desk in order to eat them while working, but not when you are trying to lose weight because they contain a lot of calories and sugar in a dried, condensed form.
It is best to eat the whole fruits than the dried ones in order to stay healthy, hydrated, and full at the same time.
#3 – All-fruits Smoothies
Of course, you can still drink all-fruit smoothies and lose several pounds at the same time, but only if you paid attention to the type of smoothie you make because in some cases, it could be a grenade of sugar.
The fruit smoothies you purchase from the grocery stores are mostly loaded with sugar, which will sabotage your journey of losing weight.
So the best solution is to make your own: one cup of fruit, protein (protein powder, for example), greens, and unsweetened almond milk. It will be 10 times better and healthier than any smoothie you’ve ever purchased.
#4 – Bananas
Bananas are extremely healthy and must be eaten daily, but if you are trying to lose weight, then you have to consider the amount you have to consume: one large banana contains 120 calories and 17 grams of sugar. Maybe a small, tasty one will be enough to get your daily dose of its nutrient. The same thing applies to pineapples.
#5 – Mangoes
No one can deny the fact that mangoes are very delicious, but sadly, they are also very high in sugar; One cup can serve over 22 grams. They are not the best choice when you are trying to drop some weight, and if you have to eat them, then it is necessary to keep a close eye on the serving size.
#6 – Grapes
Grapes are also one of our favorite fruits that we would love to binge-eat all day, but according to Brooke Alpert, RD, The Diet Detox author, these delicious fruits should be avoided while working on losing some weight because they contain about 16 grams of sugar per one-cup serving, which is a little too much.
#7 – Watermelon
Brooke also talked about watermelon and its ability to harm any weight loss diets due to the high amount of sugar it contains: 17 grams per wedge (1/6 of the melon).
But these fruits are one of the best summer snacks that keep us very hydrated during the warm days, so you should not give it up all at once, as long as you stay cautious of the portion size: 1 cup of watermelon chunks is only 9 grams of sugar.
