The dietitian and founder of the Healthy Mays clinic, May Al-Ali, has identified the main winter fruit that is not only delicious but also helps with weight loss, according to the Daily Express.

Which fruit helps with weight loss

It turns out that the best fruit for those looking to lose weight is persimmon. It will not only help boost the immune system but also lower cholesterol levels.

"Persimmons contain only 0.3g of fat per serving and six grams of fiber, which helps reduce inflammation and promotes healthy digestion. The tannins in persimmons can reduce inflammation, act against bacteria, and neutralize infections," said the expert, as reported by the Daily Express.

Don't be afraid of persimmons' sweetness, added the dietitian. It helps prevent sudden spikes in blood sugar levels and can even assist people with diabetes.

"Persimmons can be eaten fresh, dried, or cooked; they are often used to make jellies, beverages, pies, curries, and puddings. It has a mild flavor similar to melon but can be bitter if eaten too early," the Daily Express added.
