Lately, I work quite late and have the tendency to eat supper even though I know that I am going to bed soon. Instead driving out for McD fast food, I eat fruit.
Maybe it sounds too good to be true but all you have to do to maintain your ideal weight is to eat fruit every day. Fruit benefit many people wanting to lose weight. After all, it is one of the most healthy and natural foods. Fruit contains a large number of vitamins and minerals. It has also been shown that eating the whole fruit or juice is best to gain the benefits rather than taking supplements to provide each nutrient separately.
We should eat at least 5 pieces of fruit every day in order to gain the full health benefits of eating fruit.
If you are eating about one-third of the diet as fruit and vegetables, you should notice rapid weight loss because fruit consumption helps fill the stomach faster. By doing this, it encourages less high calorie foods to be consumed. Also, fruit is also low in sodium so they help reduce the chance of gaining weight because of water retention.
Here are some tips to ensure you have at least 5 pieces of fruit in your diet:
- Add dried fruit to breakfast cereal
- Eat apple or pear before leaving for work
- Eat small piece of fruit thirty minutes before light workout
- Find recipes that contain fruit
- Always have a bowl of fruit near TV (instead of having Mr Potato)
- Drink more fruit juices
If you have just started making fruit in your diet plan, not to expect immediate results. It will take time. Be patient.
