Fruits and Veggies to Avoid When Losing Weight

Fruits and Veggies to Avoid When Losing Weight



Most people think that they are heaving healthy diet, but once you look closer, the dark truth comes up.


On their menu is plenty of food that on the surface looks healthy, fresh, unprocessed, but deep inside they may hide lots of sugar, fat and calories.


We eat them (sometimes focusing mainly on them during weight loss period) thinking; yes, I am doing so great, my weight will drop in no time.


Unfortunately, your weight is either dropping slowly or is stuck at the same level. What do you do wrong then?


Main reason may be your fruit choices. I have to confess, during my second pregnancy I craved for peaches, bananas and apricots.

I could eat up to 1 kg of fruits daily. That is 2.2 pounds. I put a lot of weight on. That is a lot and my menu was pretty much packed only with fruits and veggies.


Healthy, clean eating allows you unlimited access to fruits and veggies. True. They are amazing source of vitamins, minerals, water and fiber. But…do you know there are fruits and vegetables that are really high in sugar, calories and fat?


Yes, it is true.


Remember, despite the fact that they are nutritious, they may cause problem when you try to lose weight.

It would be better for you to limit their consumption, so you can reach your weight loss goal quicker.

But why are you not losing weight, even though you are snacking healthy?


Tip! Use dark fruits. Their skin is thinner and produces more antioxidants. They also slow digestion.
