Of course you know that fruit is “good for you”, but did you know it can also help you lose weight quickly? By choosing fruits that are high in fiber, you’ll help your body eliminate fat while keeping your stomach feeling full. Plus, you’ll reap the added benefits of vitamins and minerals found in fruit. Here are 10 delicious fruits that will help you lose weight.
These delicious red treats tip the fiber scales at eight grams per serving. They’re also a hearty source of Vitamin C, Vitamin K and manganese. No wonder they’re considered a superfood!
It’s one of the easiest foods to grab and eat on the go, and lo and behold, apples will also help you whittle your waistline. One medium apple contains between four and five grams of fiber. Be sure not to peel it—the peel is where all the good stuff is at!
Summertime is the perfect time for snacking on juicy mangos, which contain about five grams of fiber per serving. Try our Clean Eating Mango Orange Smoothie, or layer sliced mangos over plain Greek yogurt for a sweet treat that will fill you up.
Ever had a persimmon? If not, it’s time to add this bright orange fruit to your fridge. Each one weighs in at six grams of fiber, and doctors believe they have properties to help ward off heart disease.
It’s the pulp that counts. One small orange contains between two and three grams of fiber and just 45 calories. You can also reap the benefits by squeezing your own orange juice at home. Just remember to leave the pulp in for the greatest weight loss impact.
Did you know bananas are botanically considered a berry? It’s no wonder, then, that they’re high in protein like their more traditional berry cousins. One medium banana contains around three grams.
So yummy, so nutritious. Strawberries taste great fresh, frozen, blended into smoothies or sliced over our Skinny Strawberry and Avocado Salad. At three grams of fiber per cup, you can’t go wrong with these bright berries.
This might just be the fiber mack daddy of all fruits, containing as much as nine grams per large guava. Getting started with guava? Choose one that’s soft, like a ripe avocado, and light yellow in color. Slice and eat it like you would an apple.
Pretty much any berry will give you a healthy helping of fiber, but the black ones ring in at seven grams per serving. Try them over our Skinny Vanilla Soft Serve for a refreshing and guilt-free dessert.
Slim down your own pear shape by eating—you guessed it, pears. One medium sized pear contains five-and-a-half grams of fiber. As with apples, you’ll want to be sure to leave the fiber-rich skin on.
