With so much news swirling around the topic of “good carbs and bad carbs” I want to explore the question, are fruits good or bad for you? The simple answer is they are good for you, because fruits are high in fiber and some are high in water content. There’s however a few fruits you want to stay away from if your goal is to loose the most amount weight possible fast. These are your dry fruits: dates, dried apricots, raisins, and bananas to name a few. You want to stick with your high fibrous fruits with high water content, these are: watermelon, berries, oranges, mangos. These fruits are not only high in fiber which keeps the food particles moving through the chain but also High in water which dilutes the sugar content in fruits.
