"It's a myth that grapefruit is a negative calorie food; No food is," says Taub-Dix. But, high-in-fiber,low-in-calories, and flavorful still makes it a good addition to a weight loss plan
if you're trying to lose weight the oh-so-tiny and sweet fruit is not only pretty damn good on its own, but may also support fat loss.
Think of apples as the powerhouse weight loss food. "With 4 grams of fiber per serving and only 95 calories, apples are one of the best sources of fiber on the planet,"
Like apples, pears are full of fiber—just one pear contains about 6 grams. "Every time you eat a pear you're working your way toward your daily recommended fiber intake," says Taub-Dix.
Generally speaking, berries are packed with something called polyphenols, which are powerful natural chemicals that can help you lose weight and even stop fat from forming.
"Strawberries are full of fiber, water, and nutrients, and research has linked strawberry consumption to improved heart health and improved insulin sensitivity,"
Watermelon sometimes gets a bad rap for being high in sugar—after all, one slice has 18 grams of sugar. But, compared to another summer snack , watermelon is way more nutritious.
"[Consuming peaches] may reduce the oxidation of bad cholesterol LDL which is associated with cardiovascular disease," peaches are sweet without being wildly high in sugar.
"Drinking lemon water in place of fruit juices or soda can absolutely support your weight loss efforts," says Taub-Dix.
