Although it is one of the healthiest choices, excess consumption of fruit can have unexpected effects
After winter and “heavy” food, with the warmer days approaching we prefer “light” foods and seasonal fruits.
Although it is one of the healthiest choices, excess consumption of fruit can have unexpected effects.
The fruit contains the necessary dietary fibers and vitamins as well as sugar. Therefore, if you consume excessive amounts of some fruit, you can gain some “unwanted” kilograms, claims nutritionist Carolyn Brown of Foodtrainersa in New York.
Bananas and grapes are fruits that should be dosed. If you want to consume fruit in larger quantities, then it is better to go for strawberries, pears, raspberries, cranberries, watermelon and cherries that have a lower glycemic index.
In order not to trouble yourself with constant calculations of calorific values, it is best to concentrate on the “number two”, that is, to limit the consumption on two fruits or two cups of chopped fruit a day.
Do not forget to calculate the calories from smoothie if you consume it, because it contains a certain amount of sugar.
Dietary fibers in fruits help in the absorption of sugar, in the same time making sure to prevent a dramatic rise or fall of energy, therefore, for the best effect combine it with nuts, seeds or turkey, as strange as it may sounds.
