Fat Grams in Fruits

Article by Diet Bites

Sometimes Fruits are Mistaken as Vegetables

Lucky for the dieter - fruits are minimal in dietary fat content. The highest on our data chart is the avocado which is considered by most to be a vegetable, but not so - botanically speaking.

Enzyme in Avocado Supports Weight Loss

But even the avocado can be a healthy addition to your weight loss plan due to its healthy fat distribution.

In fact, the avocado contains an enzyme which may actually speed-up weight loss results.

Tips for Fruit in Your Weight Loss Plan

How can you best use fruit in your weight loss plan?

1. Stick it into your cold or warm cereal in its whole-berry or sliced form.

2. Toss some into your next gourmet salad.

3. Add it to bread recipes and poke it into your microwave if applicable and serve warm.

Of course, not all fruits work well in the microwave but those that do include: pears, bananas, apples, cherries and peaches.
