Change Your Relationship With Fruit And Achieve Weight Loss Success*

Thursday, 9 April 2015, By Kiril Chevel

First we must understand that fruit is a carbohydrate, it contains fructose also known as fruit sugar therefore if not burnt immediately it will be stored as fat and slow down the weight loss process. So why have fruit at all? Well on the other hand it contains fibre and assists with healthy bowl movement, fruit contain essentials vitamins and fibre helping you stay full for longer. Below are some do's and don'ts on how to incorporate fruit into your eating plan effectively.

Do squeeze a wedge of lemon juice into a glass of warm water first thing in the morning before breakfast to boost your digestive system, minimise bloating and for Vitamin C.

Do have a serving of fruit with breakfast to increase energy levels and added vitamins to your meal. My tip is a handful of blueberries for the immune boosting anti-oxidants

Don't consume fruit after 4pm, the body begins to slow down its energy burning as the day progresses so we want to minimise carbohydrates at this time.

Do opt for fruits with darker skin, and big stones. They are fewer in carbohydrates and contain more vitamins. Fruits such as berries and peaches

Don't overeat! Measure your servings and limit to two servings a day. A handful of berries and a medium sized apple should suffice.

Do have a banana as a healthy pre-workout meal 30mins prior to endurance training.

Don't order the smoothie at the health bar, you will be consuming more carbohydrates than you think by having them blended down.

Finally the most important thing is to keep track of what you're eating! Use the Vision Virtual Training food diary to record your daily macro's intake!
