Is fruit salad for a snack good for weight loss?
- .Lv 72 months agoFavourite answer
Fruit is a healthy snack. As long as you consume fewer calories than your body uses, you should experience fat loss.
Whether your fruit salad is a low calorie snack, depends on what's in it besides fruit and how large the serving is. Fruit salads that use mayo, whipped cream, cream cheese or similar as a 'dressing' may be quite high in calories and high in unhealthy fats. We don't know what's in the fruit salad you are referring to.

TO be honest depends on everything else you eat in the day, a fruit salad is fine but how does it compare to everything else over the day?

Any snack is good for weight loss as long as it fits in to your deficit.

It's better for you than, say, chips or candy, but it is ALSO full of fructose (Sugar) and can be VERY high in carbohydrates. A better snack is one that contains some protein. Any snack that raises your blood sugar levels to such a high degree will also, after metabolizing, drop them to a low degree, which might make you hungrier and depressed. If you're going to have fruit salad, maybe you should follow it up with a carton of plain yogurt, or a glass of milk, or some cheese.

Yes as fruit salad is full of fibre it will definitely help in improving metabolism and the natural sugar present in fruits has much less calories then the artificial sweets.

If you think eating sugar is going to cause weight loss, then go for it. Fruit contains natural sugars called fructose, and weight loss never includes sugars. If you have to eat fruit, eat berries, but in strict moderation. Berries are lowest fruits on the glycemic index.

absolutely, I know they sell pre-packaged fruit in real juice not sugar water, so that's even better......mandarin oranges, mixed fruit, organic applesauce ....more.....natural not...added ingredients....
