Increase in fruit intake:

woman-weight-loss
Sugar has to be avoided for weight loss. From the survey on the internet, doctors/nutritionists are divided in their opinion on the intake of fruits for weight loss due to the sugar content in fruits. Some suggest, while on weight loss programs, not to eat fruits as they contain sugar which leads to weight gain. While some suggest that we can take fruits as they contain natural sugar.

Fruit intake has not led to an increase in weight. Fruit intake has not affected your health in any adverse manner. In Fact, fruits are rich in fiber, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and other nutrients that are very much essential for our body.
