If You’re Trying to Lose Weight, You Should Probably Stay Away From These Fruits

Weight Loss

Fruit is probably one of nature’s best snacks: it’s portable, it’s tasty, it’s full of fiber and essential micronutrients, and there are so many options to choose from. However, fruit is still high in fructose, and while it’s natural sugar, it can still add up if you are trying to lose weight. We are by no means advocating that you should give up fruit entirely if you are trying to lose weight. Rather, it’s important to pay attention to serving sizes and how much fruit you’re actually eating; if you’re making smoothies in the morning and throwing in a whole banana, a handful of berries, and a date, it can quickly add up.

“I definitely recommend that people who are trying to lose weight be mindful of portions and preparation of fruit,” Eliza Savage, RD, dietitian at Middleburg Nutrition in New York City, told POPSUGAR. “An appropriate serving would be one handheld fruit (think: one apple, one peach), one cup of cut fruit (melon, pineapple), or 15 to 17 grapes or cherries.” Additionally, a serving of a banana is usually half of a large or medium banana.

Still, if you’re looking to cut back on sugars to lose weight, here are some of the fruits you might want to limit or stay away from, according to dietitians. Instead of these fruits mentioned, many dietitians we spoke to recommended low-sugar berries such as raspberries and blueberries and fiber-rich apples.
