3 Fruits That Can Help You Lose Weight

Did you know that some fruits can help you lose weight? Do you know which ones they are? If you didn't, then you're about to find out.

One of the fruits is watermelon because 90 percent of a watermelon's weight is water, and it's one of the best fruits to eat if you're trying to lose weight. It's sweet but doesn't pack a lot of calories per serving, and its high water content makes it filling and refreshing, but without any fat and cholesterol. It helps your body stay hydrated, and a watermelon snack will also make you feel full, so you won't have cravings between meals.

Another healthy fruit that can help with weight loss is an apple. If you eat one apple a day with the skin still on, it gives the body an average of 4.4 grams of fiber, which aids in digestion and elimination of wastes, while also keeping you feeling full. They also contain non-digestible compounds that promote the growth of good bacteria in your gut associated with weight loss.

Bananas are also another weight loss snack that you can eat. You could eat bananas every day whenever you feel like you want more food than you have already eaten. Although the average banana contains 27 grams of carbs, the fruit can help stop weight gain because it has only 105 calories; it also contains three grams of filling fiber. I would eat bananas every day if I was planning on losing weight because bananas are my favorite, and, of course, I would want to lose weight and also still eat my favorite fruit.

If losing weight is one of the things that you strive for everyday and you love fruit, then try eating one of these fruits or the many others with positive health benefits.
