Calories, carbs in Fruits

You have probably been told to limit your carb intake, as well as calories you eat per day if want to lose weight. 

While I agree to ditch certain carb foods like white bread since they don't offer much nutrition, to begin with, but it's not a good idea to swear off all carbohydrates.

Fruits and vegetables for examples offer a wealth of beneficial vitamins and nutrients, which include fiber and antioxidants that are vital to your health and well-being.

However not all fruits and veggies are created equal when it comes to carbs and calories, so check out this list below to see which ones you'll want to reach for.

Takeaway

Even though some fruits like banana, mango, and persimmon are moderately higher in calories than their peers, but they still contain important vitamins, nutrients, and antioxidants that are vital to your body and health.

Plus, I have never met someone who has gained weight from eating a whole fruits diet. If you're concerned that eating a banana may cause you to gain weight, fear not. You'll not gain weight from that.
