The best vegetables and fruits for weight loss

We know that we should all be eating more fruits and vegetables and there is a long list of reasons why, from a reduction in weight-related health conditions such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease, to a reduction in cancer, to improved overall health, mood and energy levels. Lower glycemic-load fruits and vegetables have a stronger influence on maintaining healthy blood sugar levels which has an impact on weight and appetite control.

The study analyzed approximately 134,000 people over a 24-year period that showed a very strong link between a high intake of fruits and vegetables with increased weight loss and a healthy weight maintenance, although some fruits and vegetables.

Best for Weight Loss?

There was a reported emphasis on successful weight loss in participants consuming more:

  • Berries
  • Apples
  • Pears
  • Cauliflower
  • Broccoli
  • Spinach
  • Kale
  • Radishes
  • Swiss chard
  • Collard greens
  • Rutabaga
  • Turnips

The findings are likely due to the high satiety factor these fruits and vegetables create including the fact they contain lower calories while providing a high level of nutrients.

Interestingly, there were increased weight loss findings for fruit over vegetables. An increase in total fruit intake over a 4 year period was associated with a 1/2-pound (.25 kg) decrease for each extra daily serving, and an increase in total vegetable intake was associated with a 1/4-pound (0.11 kg) decrease for each extra daily serving.  This may be because the fruit eaters were snacking less  in-between their meals.

In conclusion, this study indicated that an increased consumption of fruits and non-starchy vegetables is inversely associated with a positive weight change.
