You’ll have your own reasons for visiting this page. Let’s take a look at what’s possibly in it for you if you skip dessert and replace it with fruits.

The Taste Factor

Taste Factor? More like The Wow Factor.

When we were kids, many of us had an aversion to eating vegetables because they tasted so bland. No matter how much your mom tried telling you that spinach was tastier than candy, you just weren’t buying it.

Vegetables, I can understand (what was God thinking when he made sprouts taste like that?).

But fruit? Fruit tastes amazing.

If you’re not convinced, it might be that you haven’t yet tried fruit that you like. There are many varieties out there, and there is something for everyone. Do some experimenting. Try this, try that. Try something you’ve never heard of before, such as dragon fruit. Excite your tastebuds and senses.

Fruit Gives You Energy

Fruit is energy on tap. Once eaten, it releases its natural sugars into your bloodstream almost instantly, giving you a jolt in energy.

And that’s gotta be better than feeling sluggish and bloated after a cake, right?

Fruit Is Rich In Carbs

Did you know that the human being has evolved in such a way that we are meant to live on carbs?

Take a look at the peoples who live the longest, such as the Japanese, and you will see that they live on a carb-rich diet.

And fruit is easily the best carb food. So go on – give your body what it wants the most!

Fruit Is Low In Calories           

If your main goal right now is to lose weight, eating dessert after a meal is clearly not a good idea. Yes, a cake now and then is okay. But after every single meal? Not cool.

Fruit instead of desert after a meal is an easy way to shed some pounds because it’s (all of it) low in calories.

Naturally low in calories.

Of course, some fruit is richer in calories than others. So if your main goal here is to lose weight, it’s a good idea to do some research into the kinds of fruit that are super-SUPER low in calories.

Fruit Is Good For Your Digestive System

Unlike pastry, fruit is not going to bloat you or give you gas. Instead, it’s going to flush out your system and leave you feeling fabulous.

It’s Low In Sodium

If you opt for fruit instead of desert, you don’t need to worry about added sodium in your diet because it’s naturally low in the stuff.

Sodium is a tricky thing because it tends to be everywhere, which means that controlling our intake is difficult. But by swapping desert for fruit, you’re taking a HUGE step in the right direction.

And remember – less sodium means less risk that your blood sugar levels will spike and crash.

Fruit Is Stuffed With Nutrients

You know what nutrients are, right? Nutrients are the sources of energy your body needs to function. Without essential nutrients, all kinds of things can go wrong. Not only will your energy levels drop, but your immune system will be weakened, leaving you vulnerable to infection. Your risk of developing diseases will increase, you metabolism will slow down, and your blood sugar levels will rise.

More visible issues will occur too, such as wrinkles on your skin.

We all need nutrients, and the best place to find them is in fruit. Stuffed with vitamins and minerals, fruit is the number one best way to get healthier and fitter.

You won’t find potassium and zinc in a chocolate brownie!

Fruit Is Convenient

Yes, dessert is pretty convenient, especially if you order it at a restaurant. But so is fruit.

In fact, fruit is even more convenient. How hard is it to peel a banana, dip into a bowl of grapes or slice a melon? It’s easy!

It’s basically fast food.

Fruit Is Cheap

Fruit is cheaper than all those cakes and pastries you’ve been stocking up on. I know this from experience. When I made the switch from desserts to fruit, I saved myself a heap of cash throughout the year.

Moreover, if we were to look at it in terms of cost-per-nutrients, fruit will come out massively on top. It’s a no brainer!

Sure, some fruits are a tad on the expensive side (such as a large avocado), and organic fruit will cost you a bit more. But you’ll still be saving money while getting healthier (and arguably eating something tastier).

Fruit Is Full Of Water

Water is the elixir of life, but most of us don’t consume enough of it. If you’re not keen on the taste of water, you need to get yours from different sources other than a glass of the stuff. And fruit is the next best place.
