Our expert says:
Any food, no matter how healthy, has the potential to cause weight gain if by eating such a food in excessive quantities you increase your energy intake to above your daily requirement. Recent research into the effect on the sugar fructose has indicated that if you ingest too much fructose this can lead to obesity. Thus I would recommend that you reduce your intake of 100% fruit juice and dilute the fruit juice you do drink with water or soda water to prevent you from overloading with fructose. Eating fruit should have less of a weight-gaining effect because the fruits contain some dietary fibre, but once again it is important not to overdo your intake. Moderation is always the key, even for very healthy foods.
Hope this helps with the weightloss
