Low Sugar Fruits

These Are the 6 Fruits You Should Eat If You Want to Lose Weight

While fruit is superhealthy for us, full of fiber and antioxidants, it also contains sugar. Even though fruit offers natural sugar and fiber to slow down absorption into the bloodstream, your body treats it like any other sugar. Registered dietitians Stephanie Clarke and Willow Jarosh of C&J Nutrition say, "While the sugar from fruit is different in that it brings along fiber, vitamins, and minerals, too much sugar in any form can cause a steep rise in blood sugar levels that is then followed by a steep crash."

You want to aim for just two cups or fewer of fruit (or two medium pieces) per day. Or if you're obsessed with eating fresh fruit, choose lower-sugar fruits like these six suggested by Instagram user fitwomeneat.

The amount of sugar shown for each is based on a 100-gram serving. Kiwi, berries like strawberries, blackberries, and raspberries, and grapefruit are tasty choices — and perfect for the warm weather coming up. Avocados are low in sugar, too, but high in calories, so just be mindful about portion sizes.

If you love to eat fruit nonstop but are also trying to lose weight, downing bananas, apples, mangoes, pears, and pineapple could be the reason you're not losing body fat. Make the switch to these six fruits, and see what happens!
