There are several reasons as to why fruits and vegetables are great for weight loss. Here are three of them.

Fruit and vegetables in general are low in calories and fat and high in fibre. These are three very essential points to consider for a successful weight-loss plan. Some fruits of course will be higher in fibre than others. Similarly, certain fruit such as avocados will be high in healthy fat when compared to other fruits, most of which contain no fat.

In addition, fruits and vegetables also contain wonderful vitamins and mineral substances. The bigger the variety of fruits and vegetables that you include in your eating plan, the more variation of vitamins and minerals you will take in.

Consult a professional

Always consult a dietitian if you require assistance in putting a meal or snack plan together. In addition, you should always check with your doctor before making any drastic changes to your diet, especially if you are under medication or suffer from any medical condition that has an effect on your diet.
