Fruits and vegetables are commonly referred to as "unlimited" or your "free" foods while dieting, but the truth is, some are better for you than others. That’s not to say that fruits and veggies are nutritionless; quite the opposite, actually. All fruits and vegetables are going to be good for you and have nutritional value. But if you’re trying to lose weight, it might be a good idea to limit your consumption of a few of them so you can see maximum results.
1. Tropical fruit: Fruits like mangos and pineapples certainly are delicious, but they contain higher amounts of sugar than other fruits and therefore contain more calories. You might want to save them for special occasions, or just switch to a fruit like apples, which much fewer calories and lots of fiber. For weight loss, stick to these seven fruits that are low in sugar.
5. Vegetable juice blends:While it might be difficult to get your required fruit and veggie intake every day,it’s a better plan than relying on vegetable juice blends.Many vegetable juices that taste like fruit juice contain way more salt or sugar than you need.While you’ll be getting your daily fruit and veggie intake, you’ll also be drinking your entire day’s worth of sodium!Be sure to read the ingredient list when buying Juices
