Fruits are rich in carbohydrates, but they also loaded with essential nutrients like fibre, protein, antioxidants and fibre. Cutting fruits entirely from your diet will lead to a deprivation of crucial nutrients that your body needs to function. However, many people do not realise how much fruits they are eating, especially while on a diet. When trying to lose weight, 3-4 small servings of fruit (each serving a bit more than half a cup) is enough. Irrespective of their healthful properties, fruits contain calories. If you have 4-5 mangoes apart from your regular meals, then gaining fat is inevitable. Balance and moderation are key while incorporating fruits on a diet.
