Are you trying to lose some weight? Are you working out really hard? These are five fruits and veggies that are stopping you from achieving your body goals:1 2
1. Tropical Fruits
Tropical fruits like mango, pineapple, etc. are loaded with nutrients and are delicious, but they have higher amounts of sugar. Hence, they contain more calories than other fruits.
2. Dried Fruits
As the water from them is removed, they are high calories packed in small pack. One cup of dried raisins has almost 500 calories. Hence, portion control is a must.
This delicious food is high in good fats, but fats still. One cup of pureed avocado has around 384 calories.
4. Mashed Sweet Potatoes
They might sound a better alternative to potatoes, but one cup of mashed sweet potatoes has around 249 calories. Blame the starches for it.
5. Vegetable Juice Blends
Don’t be shocked to find it in the list. Though they are highly recommended if you are trying to lose weight, but you’ll be drinking your entire day’s worth of sodium in just two cups of fruit or vegetable juice.
