Newest craze: Acai bowls. Acai smoothies also! Any fruit bowl or smoothie–same issues!
Yes, they are delish! But, if you want to lose weight or maintain weight, you can’t eat these! You can get one, have about 3 or 4 bites and then pass it on to someone else.
On a healthy diet, you should not go beyond two small fruits a day if you want to maintain weight or lose it.
FRUIT is healthier than a candy bar, but fruit has SUGAR. Any sugar will convert to carbs, then add fat to your body if you supersede 50-100 g of carbs per day.
So, educated yourselves and stop eating things just because people say it is healthy.
Too much sugar is not healthy.
