Our expert says:
Eating fruits and vegetables is always beneficial. In addition people who 'nibble on healthy foods like fruit' tend to be healthier and slimmer than people who 'gorge on 3 large meals a day'. It is quite possible that by having the fruit snacks and eating 5 times a day, has reduced the quantity of food you eat at your main meal thus reducing your total energy intake per day which would cause moderate weightloss. You are also drinking a lot of water (2 litres/day) which may fill your stomach and reduce your appetite. Adults only require about 2,5 litres of liquid a day which includes all beverages and drinks, so if you are still having additional liquids, please don't overdo your water intake and stick to having 2,5 litres of LIQUID in total per day. Otherwise you may develop electrolyte imbalances because excessive liquid/water intake can wash important mineral like potassium, sodium, magnesium and even calcium out of the body. Everything in moderation!
