The fad of simply losing weight is beaten to death. Today’s fittest men (and women) are championing the way of healthy weight – that is, the amount you should weigh based on your height. The benefits of having a healthy weight aren’t just aesthetics but also pertain to protecting you from various illnesses.
Some of these illnesses that a healthy weight can prevent includes:
- Reducing the risk of heart disease
- Reducing the risk of stroke
- Reducing the risks of developing some forms of cancer
- Controlling non-insulin dependent diabetes
- Relieving back and joint tension
- Increasing energy levels
- Optimising the immune system
- Reducing the risks of osteoporosis
- Reducing infertility risks
- Reducing the risk of anaemia
- Having more self-esteem
- Increasing energy and welfare levels
Now that we have the benefits of a healthy weight sorted, it’s time to talk about low sugar fruits. Low sugar fruits have a host of benefits when it comes to lowering your body weight without following any dodgy fitness trends. Low sugar fruits are known to be low in calories and high in fibre, hence their ability to keep the body satiated whilst satisfying your sweet tooth.
But what fruits are the lowest in sugar that will get you to a healthy weight the fastest? Nutritionist and author of NY Times best-seller #GeniusFoods Max Lugavere explains this in one simple infographic.

According to Lugavere, he’s a “discriminate” fruit lover who’s picky with his fruit.
“I particularly enjoy low sugar fruits which are rich and micronutrients, and don’t provide a ton of glucose/fructose,” he explains.
“I save those higher sugar, usually cultivated fruit for special occasions (for example, apple season which l love).”
Lugavere also says that eating seasonally is one way to alternate your low sugar fruit consumption.
So there you have it. If you’re serious about losing weight and not starving yourself, these are the fruits that should be in your fridge.
