🍇 Fruit replaces energy-dense foods: when you include fruit as part of your snack regimen, you replace "snack foods" that are likely high in fat, salt, and calories!
🍉 Fruit provides prolonged satiety. Since it's filled with fiber and water, fruit will naturally take up space in your belly. This nutrient-rich, water-filled, lower calorie option will help keep you full longer!
🫐 Fruit has micronutrients (vitamins & minerals). Vitamins have an influence on fat mass reduction that is attributed to leptin resistance and the downregulation (or suppression) of genes involved in the formation of fat cells.
🍏 Fruit has phytochemicals that have desirable health benefits by decreasing the risk of multiple illnesses, such as cancers, type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, and obesity. They reduce oxidative stress via their anti-oxidant properties which also suppresses fat cell formation.
