Did you know that munching on some fruit can help you lose weight?

While it’s true that a lot of fruit contains high fructose levels, which means you’re adding heaps of sugar to your diet, there are a fair few that can actually help you on your way to shedding some kilos.

Here are five fruits you can eat that are actually really good for you and why:

The high fibre content of pears makes you feel full, which means you eat less. Just make sure you keep the skin on – that’s where the good stuff is.

The soluble fibre found in bananas curbs the desire to eat comfort foods – so chow down in the morning to boost your immune system.

The high water content in grapefruits help increase the feeling of fullness. They’re also low calorie.

These little babies are high in antioxidants, which rids the body of toxins (those are the pesky things that lead to weight gain). Plus they are delicious. Win win.


Oranges cut a considerable amount of calories from the diet, and also keep the body well hydrated. Dat vitamin C.
