Many people think that eating fruits will not be fat, so they eat fruits to lose weight, actually the kilogram is still increased by two bananas or one mango that provide energy same as a bowl of rice.
According to Le Thi Hai, National Institute of Nutrition, eating fruits can still be overweight and obese. Ripe fruits have sweet taste and high sugar content. Eating many of these fruits also provides the body with considerable energy.
For example, if you eat two 100g bananas, the energy is also equal to one bowl of rice. Similarly, eating a 200-250g mango or 300g jackfruit or litchi is equal to a bowl of rice. Therefore, if you eat more this sweet fruit, you is still increase weight.
If you want to lose weight, Dr. Hai recommends eating low-sugar fruits such as cucumbers, pea, grapefruit, apple, pears, oranges. Cucumber and grapefruit also work to reduce excess fat in the blood.
Cucumber, pea can be used for overweight people with obesity eating habits. These types of fruits have very low energy, the main ingredient is water, which supplies the body with high fiber, vitamins and minerals.
In order to lose weight, women should reduce energy intake; use lean meat and steamed steak; eat more green vegetables and less sweet fruits; do exercises. Exercise should be appropriate for your age and health status, for at least 30 minutes a day with walking, swimming, aerobics, biking, etc.
