If you’re worried about gaining weight, a piece of fruit might seem like a guilt-free snack option.

But not all fruits are the same, says nutrition expert Dr. Michael Mosley, who made the 2:5 intermittent fasting system famous and is also a staunch advocate of the Mediterranean diet.

And while dieters generally encourage fruit snacks, Dr. Michael found that some of them may actually hinder weight loss.

A dietitian expert said on his website that “sweet tropical fruits such as mangoes, pineapples and watermelons” should be avoided due to their high sugar content.

Instead, he suggested choosing raspberries, apples, or pears. Dr. Moseley explained that these fruits contain “less sugar” than their tropical counterparts.

Speaking on his BBC Just One Thing podcast, Dr. Moseley talked about the health benefits of eating one apple a day.

He said this “delicious snack” can improve blood flow, sharpen the mind, and shrink the waistline.

Apple peels are rich in chemical compounds called flavonoids and may help improve heart health and cognitive function.

The doctor claimed that eating one of these humble fruits daily was associated with increased lifespan, as it could lower cholesterol levels and reduce inflammation.

And if you’re looking to lose weight fast, Dr. Moseley also suggested “straight out sugar” by cutting out desserts, sugary drinks, and desserts. Instead, he recommends eating raspberries or a small piece of dark chocolate.

Dr. Moseley urges against starting your day with breakfast cereal, as well as low-fat and processed starchy foods.

Mosley noted that the best food to enjoy without worrying about it affecting your health is to start your day with eggs. He explained that eating it boiled, scrambled or as an omelet will make you feel full for a longer period compared to breakfast cereal or toast.

Among his recommendations was full-fat yogurt enriched with berries, nuts, and cinnamon.

Scientists have found that eating the equivalent of three and a half cups of broccoli a day can significantly improve gut health, as well as help with weight control, brain health, inflammation, and immune function.
