Fruits Low in Calories for Weight Loss

Written by Diet Bites


The Fruit Group & Your Diet Plan

Have you been trying to get more fruit into your weight loss plan but just can't seem to accomplish such? If so, we have some wonderful effective tips that can assist along with the caloric values of many popular fruits.

Fruits With Low Calories

Fruits lowest in calories include apricots, plums and strawberries. A grape contains about two calories; the apricot about 17 and the plum about 30.

We'll address the strawberries later in this article. Another great low calorie fruit is the grapefruit; depending upon the species it can contain as little as 35 calories per one-half fruit up to about 60 calories.

Let's begin our quest by thinking about your busy day. Your meal plates are a very vital part of your schedule. Speaking of schedules, do you schedule your meals? If not, scheduling is just another fancy word for meal planning.

Without savvy meal planning, it can be more difficult to lose weight.

By establishing a set time for meals and snacks, you're preparing your body to expect energy-in at particular times of the day. This method of eating can also ensure more stable blood sugar levels. If you are a diabetic, you should make meal scheduling a top goal.

As to your busy day, you awake and prepare for the hours ahead, perhaps thinking about how you will be enjoying your evening relaxation time. What do you usually enjoy for a late evening snack? Hot buttered popcorn popped in the microwave? Or chips from a bag or ice cream from a carton?

Late evening snacking is the biggest contributor to weight gain.

Instead, here is one spot in your schedule where you can insert a healthy banana for about 100 calories.

Even if the banana is huge, it will only contain about 130 calories. A one-half cup serving of ice cream tends to hold more.

Notice our planning technique; we're not beginning with the first meal of the day - rather the last. This is because the later in the day that you eat, the more difficult it will be for your body to use the energy; the metabolic rate slows and processing will also slow, in turn.

Let's think about dinner now; what's for dessert?

What about a beautiful clear dessert glass, bowl or cup filled with berries and topped with light whipped cream? Sounds good, doesn't it? If the dessert dish is holding strawberries, one cup of whole contains a skinny 45 calories.

Now let's get back to rise and shine time. If you're like most dieters you're going to have a quick bowl of whole grain cereal for breakfast. The cold cereals are easier to add fresh fruit too than the warm - so what about some blueberries? A one-half cup serving contains less than 40 calories.

Snack times make opportune times to add fresh, frozen or canned fruits. Because they arrive from the garden in their own healthy wrappers, they transport well and they offer so many vitamins and minerals that our body requires for so few calories and dietary fat grams.

You need from two to four servings from the Fruit Food Group each day.

When the fruit is large, the serving size generally equals one cup of cubed fruit.

Did we forget about our lunch dessert? Certainly - so it's up to you to fill in the void. What will you enjoy with your meal plate at dessert time for your lunch?
