Fruits and vegetables provide our body with many essential nutrients and should be an important part of our diet.
In fact, the NHS recommends that the average adult eat at least five servings of different fruits and vegetables a day.
The health organization advises: “There is evidence that people who eat at least five servings of fruits and vegetables a day have a lower risk of heart disease, stroke and some types of cancer.”
Nutrition expert Dr. However, Michael Mosley has argued that there are some commonly eaten fruits that you should eat less of if you want to lose weight.
He explains: “What you eat has a profound impact on your mental health and therefore your energy levels.
What fruits should we avoid if we want to lose weight?
The nutritionist told sbs.com: “Fruit is great when you’re healthy, but if you need to lose weight then it might be wise to switch to less sugary fruits like apples and berries.”
He said that fruits like mangoes have fairly high natural sugar levels compared to other fruits like grapes, raspberries or avocados.
In addition to mangoes, Dr. Michael on the Fast 800 website also suggested that we shouldn’t eat melons and pineapples too often as they are also high in sugar. Instead, it’s better to opt for fruits with less sugar, like berries.
He explained: “An average sized mango contains 45 grams of sugar. Compared to other fruits, a cup of grapes has 23 grams of sugar, a cup of raspberries has five grams, and a whole avocado has 1.33 grams of sugar. “
He went on to say that people who are young and slim could get away with eating sugary fruits like mangoes or bananas, but those trying to lose weight should avoid them.
What other foods should we avoid to lose weight?
dr Mosley recommends avoiding anything “you can buy at a gas station.”
He explained, “If it’s heavily marketed, in bright packaging and loaded with fat, sugar and salt, it’s likely to affect our health and mood — and not for the better.”
He advises us to avoid tempting foods like cookies or chips and to throw them away if we have any in our pantries.
Instead, he recommends stocking our fridges and cupboards with fresh, whole ingredients, as well as canned and frozen fish, vegetables and legumes.
He added, “Meal replacement shakes, even in moderation, have their place if you’re particularly busy or travel frequently.”
While many snack on fruit, Mosley suggests opting for unsalted nuts or vegetables instead.
