If you want to eat well and improve your diet, consider eating vitamin-packed fruit. Many fruits provide Vitamin C, which is a necessary part of the human diet, and may help if you are trying to lose weight.
Consumption of fruit can be a part of a good weight loss plan and should form part of any healthy lifestyle. However, while there are some fad diets which focus solely on eating fruit, there is no need to restrict other nutrients to lose weight. Vitamins are essential for normal body function. They affect metabolism, human growth and development, and contribute to a healthy immune system. They are only required in minimal amounts, and the body either stores or excretes excess amounts in the urine.
These fruits each contain approximately 10 essential vitamins and can be consumed regularly by most people as part of a healthy diet: apples, bananas, berries, cherries, cantaloupes, grapes, figs, dates, guava, kiwi fruit, oranges, lemons, limes, olives, peaches, pears, nectarines, pineapples, plums, and watermelon. Tomatoes and avocadoes, though often eaten as vegetables, are fruits and are excellent choices of vitamins that can be eaten daily.
This is not a complete list; most fruits will provide high numbers of vitamins, although not every type contains the same type and amount of vitamins. Eating the fruit, rather than juicing it, will provide more benefits from vitamins and fiber.
Fat-soluble vitamins such as Vitamins A, D, E, and K, are stored in the body for longer periods and don’t require the same daily intake requirement as water-soluble vitamins like Vitamins B and C. Berries are a good option for providing water-soluble vitamin content, and these fruits can be included in the diet daily. Examples of fruits high in these water-soluble vitamins are blackberries, raspberries, blueberries, oranges, bananas, and apples.
An apple a day may not keep the doctor away, but it’s certainly a good part of a nutritious breakfast!
