The 10 Most Caloric Fruits
In this article, you will discover the 10 fruits that contain the highest amount of calories, which you need to avoid if you’re trying to lose weight.
1. Nuts — 600 kcal per 100 grams:
Nuts are rich in lipids and proteins, which explains their high energy intake (600 kcal on average).
For pecans, it is 700 calories per 100 grams, 600 for cashew nuts and around 500 for walnuts and hazelnuts.
Despite this, we still recommend eating nuts regularly, as their consumption is beneficial for your health. Nuts contain omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin E, magnesium, iron, calcium and fiber.
2. Dried fruits — 300 calories per 100 grams: On average, there are 300 calories in 100 grams of dried fruits such as prunes, apricots, bananas, dates or figs.
Although they lose their vitamin C while drying, dried fruits have preserved their nutrients, minerals and trace elements. Rich in fiber, they help the intestinal transit and fight against cholesterol.
3. Dates — 300 kcal per 100 grams: Dates are very sweet and contain about 300 calories per 100 grams, which makes them very good fruits for sportsmen, but less so for dieters!
They are, on the other hand, a good source of dietary fiber and contain a high concentration of antioxidants.
4. Avocados — 220 kcal per 100 grams
This delicious fruit is very caloric, as half of one contains 220 kcal and 15 g of fat.
The avocado is, however, packed with omega 3, vitamins and minerals.
Consume it in moderation.
5. Coconuts — 360 kcal per 100 grams
Rich in fatty acids, potassium and carbohydrates, this holiday fruit is full of nutrients, but is also very caloric.
On the other hand, the coconut contains a large amount of dietary fiber, which makes it a great ally to our intestinal transit, and a satisfying food.
According to Dasman Diabetes Institute (DDI) Kuwait, diabetics should keep check on their intake on fruits as many fruits are high calorie food items. Not just keep check on the quantity but also at the hour of the day you are having these fruits. Having them is necessary to get micro-nutrients from them but moderation is the key.
