It’s sad that there are very nutritious and delicious foods that should be off the menu when you’re trying to lose weight.

Unfortunately, some healthy foods are very high in calories and therefore to be avoided at times when your calorie intake needs to be lower than normal.2

And that includes fruit.

Here are the fruits to avoid when you’re trying to lose weight.

1. Raisins

Raisins

Avoid raisins when you're trying to lose weight because of their high caloric content.

A half-cup serving of loosely packed raisins has up to 217 calories – a 100g serving has up to 324 calories.

Under normal circumstances, when you're not trying to lose weight, raisins are good.

It may be high in calories, but a Β½ cup serving also has 3g of fiber, 2g of protein, 1g of iron, and up to 543mg of potassium.

2. Dates

Dates

Adding more fiber to your diet may actually help you shrink your waist size, but you cannot afford to get fiber at the cost of calories.

That's exactly what happens when you include dates in your diet.

A 100g serving of medjool dates will offer 7g of dietary fiber, but you will also load your body up with 277 calories - not good when you're trying to lose weight.

Please note that dates are great when you're not trying to lose weight because they have calcium required for stronger bones, iron for your red blood cells, and vitamin A for better skin.

3. Prunes

Prunes

Reducing your caloric intake by 500 calories a day will help you lose a pound a week, so you need to avoid prunes, which are otherwise good but have a high caloric content.2

One cup of dried prunes has 418 calories with 66g of sugar.

It is an extremely rich source of potassium, which is vital for bodily functions and helps with heart rhythm, digestion, muscle contractions, and nerve impulses.

You still have to avoid this high calorie fruit for its added sugar content and extra calories.
