Is it okay to eat fruit on an empty stomach? Does it help with weight loss?


Q. Please tell me what fruit is healthy to eat on an empty stomach and will it help me lose weight?


A. Any fruit can be consumed on an empty stomach. Fruit is naturally easy to digest and is a great snack food. When trying to lose weight, all fruits and vegetables should be included as part of a healthy diet. Fruits and vegetables are full of different nutrients including phytochemicals which serve various roles in the body. For optimal health and weight management, make half your plate fruits and vegetables at every meal and include exercise on a regular basis.
