Fruit is one of the healthiest forms of food that you can eat. Filled with nutrients and fibre, these sweet treats from nature help you stave off illnesses and stay strong and healthy. However, for those who are trying to lose weight, you need to be a little careful so that you don’t go overboard because some fruits are high in fructose, while processed fruit products are filled with added sugar. Those who are sensitive or intolerant to fructose may suffer from bloating, gas, abdominal pain and diarrhoea.


Fruit salad: Feeling super virtuous after polishing off a plate of fruit salad? Well, it’s best avoided if you are trying to lose weight because you can overdose on fructose. Eat a whole fruit like an apple, instead.


Fruit juice: Fruit juices are a complete no-no as they are overloaded with sugar and have none of the goodness of fibre and natural vitamins and minerals like whole fruit. Processed fruit juices also have added sugar.

Dried fruit: Dried fruit have their water removed so the calories and sugars are in concentrated form. So if you have a cup of dried raisins, you are taking in almost 500 calories! Some dried fruit also have added sugars and chemical additives.


Tropical fruit: Some fruits like mangoes and pineapples are certainly delicious, but have more sugar than other fruit. This makes them tastier and harder to resist! Exercise portion control.

Fruit in syrup: Whether it is tinned fruit in syrup or soaked fruits served at hotel breakfast buffets, they are best avoided. The heavy syrup in which they are steeped can add whopping amounts of sugar calories to your diet.


Blended fruit drinks: While these are not as bad as fruit juices as they are not pressed and filtered, and also contain some fibre, the benefits you receive are far less than what you would have got from eating whole fruit. Also packaged smoothies have a lot of fruit in a serving and huge amounts of added sugar so are very high in calories.


Fruit-based snacks: Everyone loves fruit leathers and candies, especially kids, but they are not as healthy as you’d like to believe. Even if made with no added sugar, they don’t offer the same benefits as whole fruit and the concentrated fructose is no good for your waist.
