How Many Calories in raw Fruit


What would we do without fruit? Especially when you are trying to reduce your calories, fruit can be a lifesaver to stop any hunger pangs.
We should all be eating at least five fruits a day to be healthy, and the great news is that the calories are really low in most fruit.

fruit and exercise Cut up a juicy orange and enjoy all that vitamin-filled sweet tangy flesh and remember it is only around 50 calories! Have a crunchy apple and feel fuller (Calories in an Apple? Around 45) and you are less likely to snack on food with empty calories.

Bananas are so easy to carry around with you to combat any unexpected hunger pangs and are a brilliant slow-release food and contain virtually no fat. How many calories in a Banana? Around 80 in a medium sized one.


When you are cutting down it can be very comforting to eat a bowl of warm rhubarb or cinnamon spiced apple or enjoy a portion of delicious fresh fruit salad. Fruit is teeming with minerals, vitamins and fibre and we are very lucky that we can enjoy all types of fruit all year round.

We are no longer restricted to eating only the fruit in season, now we can eat strawberries any time we feel like it. Admittedly the flavour isn't always as good as during the summer, but they are still a low calorie and enjoyable option. Keeping slim can be easy when you have delicious fruit options on hand, so make sure your fridge is well stocked always.
