Is Fruit Bad For Losing Weight?

‘Fructose causes diabetes’

‘Fruit sugar is just as bad as real sugar’

‘Fructose has cocaine like effects on the brain’

‘Fruit causes weight gain’

All pretty outlandish statements that i’ve heard and
seen over the years.

So is eating fruit really that bad?

and does it cause you to gain weight?

Well if it does,

Then the humble fruit bat is in serious trouble.

and by now they should be some sort of obesity epidemic
in bat caves around the freaking world on the above logic.

Ha, i joke.

But seriously, fruit is one of the most nutritious foods you can eat and by and large is relatively low calorie.

Here is just a small list (there are more) of the beneficial stuff we get from fruits;

  • Fibre
  • Antioxidants
  • Vitamin C
  • Iron
  • Folic Acid
  • Potassium
  • Vitamin A
  • Magnesium

(With exception being dried fruits that are usually covered in oils and are high calorie)


So saying that fruit on the whole is one of the biggest issues when it comes to losing fat is kind of ridiculous if you ask me,

It’s got TOO complicated and there are too many voices


Basically, what i see is that we live in FEAR of eating certain foods when actually for most people, they are perfectly fine.



The gist of post is is this;

Fruit doesn’t make you fat and it’s perfectly fine to eat.

Yours in Health,
