Which fruit and vegetables are best for weight loss
Did you know up to 86%** of Europeans don’t eat their recommended 5 portions of fruit and vegetables a day? Yet these vitamin- and antioxidant-packed goodies are not only crucial for our health but can also help with weight loss! Read on to learn how – and which are especially beneficial.
Hectic schedules often leave us with little time to spare. As a result, not only do most Europeans not get their 5 a day but as many as 34.4%** don’t even eat fruit and vegetables every day. And this can have a significant effect on their weight.
How eating fruit and veggies affects your weight
Fruit and veggies are high in fibre and water and low in calories. Inevitably, this means that for the same number of calories, you can eat more fruit and veggies than you can high-calorie foods.
It helps you feel fuller for longer while ingesting fewer calories.
Amazing, isn’t it? This way, they boost slimming while also providing essential nutrients and powerful antioxidants to protect you from the harmful effects of free radicals, support immunity and promote overall well-being.
So which superfoods are especially successful in aiding weight loss?
Fruits such as blueberries, raspberries, acai berries, cherries, and acerola are low-calorie superfoods packed with antioxidants and vitamin C.
On top of that, they’re also pretty filling. A study** revealed that people who ate berries before meals consumed less food than those who ate candy with the same calorie content instead.
With high fibre and water content, carrots are highly recommended for healthy weight loss. They can fill you up with barely any calories, so it’s safe to say they’re one of the go-to foods for a late-afternoon snack.
Blend them with fruits and other veggies or cut them into sticks and combine them with a low-calorie dip for a nutrient-rich slimming snack.
Low in calories and high in fibre, apples are the next contestant for the most filling food award.
In fact, one study** reveals that an apple is nearly 3x as filling as a chocolate bar. How about that?
With a similar mechanism of action, broccoli can also help you lose weight by increasing the fibre in your diet and minimising the calorie content.
It also has a low glycaemic load which can help keep your blood sugar levels in check to further reduce hunger.
5. Spinach and other leafy greens
Though most people don’t like eating them, leafy greens like spinach and Brussels sprouts are among the top healthy and nutritional veggies recommended for weight loss.
We know Brussels sprouts can be difficult to get down but here’s a tip. Try cooking them in salted water until tender (a few minutes), then roast them with some garlic, pine nuts and a splash of soy sauce (optional). Yum!
