According to a research review published in the journal Obesity Reviews, most evidence points to an inverse relationship between fruit intake and body weight—meaning that as fruit intake goes up, waistlines tend to shrink.
Similarly, Spanish researchers found that people with the highest fruit intake were less likely to gain weight over a 10-year period than those who ate the least amount of nature’s sweet offerings.
Fruits help with our bowel movement. Do not eat over ripe fruits and when detoxing or during the first 3 weeks of your weight loss program.
Most fruits should be eaten during the day. And beware of food combining. It is best to eat fruits 30minutes after a meal. Pineapple enzymes help breakdown fat in meat. And fiber in fruits encapsulates the fat and sugar out of the body.
Fruit is loaded with sugar, in particular fructose and sorbitol (a sugar alcohol), and both of those nutrients can cause gas and bloating. It’s also full of fiber—which, in addition to keeping your belly flat in the long term by moving your GI tract along, can be hard to digest and create gas as a result.
Snack on raspberries, strawberries or blueberries at the same time. The berries’ high water content will counteract cherries’ belly-ballooning properties. Or chase a snack with bloat-banishing detox water. Fruits like lemons and blueberries reduce bloating, and the extra liquid will aid fiber digestion.
