Dried fruits and weight management

Dried fruits and weight management

Tehran (ISNA) - Dried Fruits, with fiber and natural sugars, healthy fats and zero cholesterol, and an endless list of delicious flavors and tastes, are perhaps the best and easiest source of all essential nutrients required by a human body.

Natural dates, raisins, dried figs, dried apricots and others, when taken in the right amount and a perfect blend makes a mixture which is all you need for a healthy lifestyle. It would be great to keep a stock of dried fruits at home or in your office. So you can buy dried fruits, and easily grab a healthy snack whenever you feel hungry.

Dried fruit supplies nutrients that might actually help you lose weight. There are many types of dried fruits that are available in stores such as The Source bulk food and NATURAL MOREISH, even to buy nuts or dried fruits in bulk. These include dried apricots, dates, dried plums (prunes), raisins, goji berries and dried figs.

You may be thinking “aren’t dried fruits high in sugar”?  While some dried fruits are high in sugar and calories, they are highly nutritious and packed with vitamins and minerals. Some dried fruits are sweetened with added sugar, but many are simply dried or dehydrated with no additives or preservatives, so nothing is put in, and the only thing that's taken away is water.

In the remainder of this article, we will show the potential effects of dried fruits on weight to determine whether it’s weight loss friendly or fattening.

Dried Fruit, Calories and Weight Gain

Dried fruit can fit into virtually any diet, whether calorie-restricted for weight loss or one designed for weight maintenance or weight gain. Dried fruits, such as dates, prunes, apricots, figs, sultanas, and raisins, contain more calories than their fresh counterparts, making them great options for healthy weight gain. If you're trying to gain pounds, incorporating lots of dried fruit into your meals or snacks can help you easily take in extra calories per serving.

Natural Dried Fruits and Weight Loss

Dry fruits are filled with healthy nutrients and due to their high nutritional value, many of them are considered superfoods. Thus, eating them instead of regular snacks, ensures that you do not increase your intake of unhealthy fats and carbohydrates that promote weight gain. Moreover, certain kinds of dry fruits can boost your metabolism, which means you will burn more calories overall and lose weight.

Buying Diet-Friendly Dried Fruit

Whether your goal is weight loss or gain, choose the healthiest types of dried fruit. When purchasing dried fruits, avoid sweetened dried fruits with added sugar, including fruit sweetened with "natural" sugars, like juice concentrate, brown rice syrup or honey. The easiest way to do this is to find dried fruits for sale online and purchase them in bulk. You can buy a large amount of dry fruits online because they have a long shelf life when stored properly in an airtight container.

Be sure to look for dried fruits or freeze dried versions with no added sugar or preservatives. Fruits that tend to be bitter, like cranberries, may be sweetened with 100% fruit syrup and that's okay. You may also see a small amount of oil in the ingredient list, which is used to prevent fruit from clumping, which is also okay.

There are many suppliers of different types of nuts out there. But not all of them adhere to industry standards. NUTS FOR LIFE and NATURAL MOREISH transport, prepare, and pack nuts with utmost caution to ensure safety and to maintain their natural taste.
