Fruits And Calories

Fruit delivers a burst of vitamins as well as a naturally delicious taste and it’s all low calorie.  A serving is usually about 50 or 60 calories. An average-sized orange has only about 12 grams of natural sugar, and a cup of strawberries has only about 7. You’ll also be getting 3 grams of fiber, vitamin C, healthy antioxidants, and a shot of folic acid and potassium.

Trying to lose weight, fruit is a good option as healthy snack and as a dessert for main meal.  Ideally with snacks choose between fruit, protein and vegetable snacks ie not all fruit snacks. Avoid/limit the cab based snacks which cause swings in blood sugar levels. For a main course best to get a balanced meal including protein and vegetbables rather than just a bowl of fruit.
