When it comes to fruits and diets, most people do not consider them great allies. But even though fruits contain sugar, they are still highly recommended for sustaining a healthy lifestyle and offering your body the amounts of daily nutrients.
What to enjoy the delicious taste of fruits without having to worry about gaining weight or sabotaging your diet? Teatox has a few tips for you, and a list of six fruits that are low in sugar and can become important allies for your Teatox diets.
Before starting with our list, here are a few tips for eating fruits the right way while on a diet:
- Stay away from fruit juices, regardless of how natural they are; remember: always juice your vegetables and eat your fruits
- Limit your intake of fruits that are high on sugar to only two-three per week, or half a fruit per day
- Have fruits in the morning rather than in the evening and try to include them in a rich and delicious breakfast
- Stick to fruits for your sugar cravings, don’t mix them with unhealthy sweets or fizzy drinks
- As much as you can, try to stay away from bananas and grapes.
Now let’s see what fruits you can eat more of while dieting, and why are these fruits good for you:
Usually berries (blackberries, raspberries) are fruits that you can consume while dieting because they are rich in fiber and antioxidants and have a low content of fructose. Eat berries for breakfast with Greek yogurt or oatmeal or have them as in-between snacks. You can even add a few berries in your vegetable smoothies, for tastier smoothie.
Avocado is a fruit rich in nutrients and with a low fructose content which is why it can be consumed daily, even by people who are on a diet. The healthy fats that are found in the avocado fruit will lower your bad cholesterol levels and keep your blood pressure steady.
One of the fruits with the lowest fructose content, the grapefruit can be eaten at any time during your diet. In fact, it is recommended to eat half a grapefruit before every meals and studies have shown that people who have followed this little trick have lost more weight than usual. Consider other fruits from the same family such as lemons and limes.
Yes, the delicious strawberries are among the fruits that are low in sugar. Have strawberries for breakfast, add them in your salad or in your vegetable smoothies for a much more delicious taste.
As you probably know by now, tomatoes, although considered vegetables by many, are in fact fruits, and are great for your diet. With their low content of fructose, can be used in salads or eaten as they are and have important health benefits, especially due to their lycopene content.
The delicious papaya fruit is low in sugar, high in vitamin C and antioxidants and can be a great ally for any diet, whether we are talking about a detoxing diet or a regular weight loss diet. The papaya fruit also contains a lot of fiber, which is good for your digestion and can also help your body release the sugar into your blood faster than usual.
