Fruit is not the enemy! Packed with vitamins, minerals and fiber, fruit is a great low calorie way to satisfy your sweet tooth..
These low sugar fruits can be especially beneficial when trying to keep your overall sugar intake lower because your liver can only process so much fructose at once and excess fructose gets stored as fat.
While you won’t gain weight if you’re not eating in a calorie surplus, having the right amount of fruit in your day can help you maintain a leaner look and keep your overall insulin levels remain more even.
