Weight loss and pineapple

By seeing above nutritional information, it should be clear that pineapple doesn't contain fat and depending upon the type, pineapple also contains some amount of sugar.

Along with this, pineapple has few secrets that can make it a part of your weight loss regime. Let’s see how-:

Fiber - Pineapple has soluble fiber which gets dissolved with water and forms a gel that eventually slows down the digestion process. Good for people who are looking for weight loss. Because it will take longer time for digestion and you will not feel hungry so frequently. Read more about Importance of fibre.

Water content - 

Pineapple solves both the requirement of fullness and hydration. Excellent choice for those who are trying to lose weight because consumption does not necessarily mean that you are consuming excessive amount of calories. 

So, overall pineapple is good for your health, but does it have any special properties to promote weight loss? We don’t think so. It can help weight loss if you replace high calorie foods in your diet with lower calories from pineapple, but no magical property of pineapples will help you lose weight.

In fact, among fruits, pineapples have a relatively higher glycemic index, so it’s not exactly keeping your blood sugar low to help your body burn fat. Ensure that you eat fresh pineapple as the canned pineapple is loaded with sugar, and is sapped of nutrients lost in processing.
