Wondering how we came up with this top 10 list?
To make the top 10 list of the best calorie fruit for weight loss, a piece of fruit had to have at least 2 grams of fiber and relatively low sugar.
The 10 Best and Lowest Calorie Fruits for Weight Loss
Enjoy any of these low calorie fruits…guilty free!
These fruits are all healthy and great for weight loss and/or weight management.
1. Blueberries – 80 Calories Per Cup
One cup of blueberries has 84 calories, 4.6 grabs of fiber, and 1 gram of protein.
Plus, you’ll get Vitamin C, vitamin K, and manganese.
You can frequently buy a small bag of frozen blueberries from Whole Foods or Trader Joes and enjoy the whole bag for under 210 calories.
Add a Chobani yogurt to dethawed berries for a fun yogurt smoothie.
2. Apples – About 90 Calories Each
One apple has anywhere between 90 and 130 calories, depending on its size and variety.
Green apples tend to be slightly lower in sugar but go ahead and enjoy a crunchy Fuji apple if that is what you like!
Plus, apples have more than 4 grams of fiber to keep you full.
I personally always carry an apple or two with me. It’s a great snack for when you get hungry on the road!
3. Strawberries – 50-60 Calories Per Cup
Strawberries have relatively low sugar (8.5 grams in a cup) and high fiber (3.5 grams in a cup).
Go ahead and enjoy strawberries for a low-calorie treat.
4. Grapefruit – 50 Calories in ½ Grapefruit
Remember the grapefruit diet? Well…it’s because grapefruit is so healthy for you!
A whole grapefruit has about 100 calories and 4 grams of fiber.
Plus, grapefruit is a great source of Vitamin C and Vitamin A.
Grapefruit is also a very low-sugar fruit for low-carb diets.
5. Peaches – 70 Calories Each
When peaches are in season, go ahead and buy a dozen (seriously!).
One peach has fewer than 70 calories, about 2.6 grams of fiber, and 1.6 grams of protein.
6. Kiwi – 40 Calories Each
If you have the patience to peel it (or the guts to eat the skin!), go ahead and grab a kiwi.
One kiwi only has 40 calories yet packs in 2.1 grams of fiber, 0.8 grams of protein, and more than 100% of your daily Vitamin C. Yum!
7. Nectarines – 60 Calories
Nectarines are like the sister of peaches, except their skin isn’t soft and they are a little less sweet.
An average nectarine has 57 calories and 2.2 grams of fiber, making it one of the best lowest calorie fruits.
8. Oranges – 70 Calories
Go ahead and eat as many healthy oranges as you desire.
With about 70 calories and 3.1 grams of fiber (a lot!), you really can’t go wrong with eating lots and lots of this healthy fruit.
Just make sure you have a napkin handy, as oranges can be sticky and quite juices when you peel them!
9. Blackberries – 60 Calories Per Cup
Blackberries should really be named fiber-berries.
One cup of blackberries only has 60 calories and 7.6 grams of fiber (that’s more than 25% of your daily value!).
Blackberries are also fun and easy to eat. So go ahead and enjoy this low calorie fruit.
10. Raspberries – 65 Calories Per Cup
One cup of raspberries only has 65 calories, 8 grams of fiber (a LOT!), and 1.5 grams of protein.
Out of all the low calorie fruits, raspberries are probably one of the healthiest due to their high fiber and relatively high protein content.
So go ahead and eat a whole carton of raspberries. A big 12 oz container of raspberries only has 175 calories.
How to Add More Low Calorie Fruits to Your Diet to Lose Weight
It can be hard to find creative ways to add more healthy, low calorie food to your diet.
Here are a few ideas to make it easier to eat more low calorie fruits.
1. Have an Apple in the Afternoon
It’s easy to toss an apple into your bag and eat it on the go.
Or, have a crunchy apple with peanut butter for a healthy afternoon snack.
2. Make Fruit Smoothies
Add milk, a banana (a MUST for a great-tasting smoothie), and frozen fruit into the blender for a healthy smoothie.
3. Eat Berries at Breakfast
Eat a handful of blueberries or strawberries at breakfast or add fresh fruit to your morning oatmeal.
4. Have Fruit for Dessert
Add a little bit of sugar on top of strawberries for a delicious dessert.
Or, mix a Chobani yogurt with fresh blueberries for a tasty treat.
5. Keep Fruit Out and In Sight
There’s no need to buy fake fruit for your dining room décor!
Instead, buy real fruit and place it in a pretty bowl on your dining room table or kitchen counter.
You may be more likely to eat low calorie fruit if it is in sight.
