The 10 most caloric fruits 

 

 

  1. Nuts: 600 calories per 100 g

 

These fruits are rich in lipids and proteins. This explains their high energy intake. 

However, nuts have loads of good, health-promoting nutrients (vitamin E, iron, calcium, and fiber), so you can get them in small amounts.  

 

Opt for plain and raw nuts. Avoid those that are salty, sweet or grilled. Pecans are number one with 700 calories per 100g.  

 

If you must choose them bet on almonds which are rich in healthy fats, contain a lot of magnesium of vitamins including vitamin B2 and E.  10 almonds equals 110 calories.

2. Coconut: 360 calories per 100 g  

 

Although it is naturally rich in saturated fat and calories, coconut is full of nutrients: a significant amount of dietary fiber and an excellent source of minerals and trace elements (iron, copper and manganese).  

 

 

3. Dried fruits: 300 calories per 100 g

 

Dried fruits are prunes, bananas, apricots, dates or figs. As they dry out, they lose their vitamin C, but retain their other nutrients and minerals. They are rich in fiber and help with intestinal transit. So if you have constipation problems, try prunes which are ideal for restoring these ailments.  

 

4.  Dates: 300 calories per 100 g

They are very sweet and high in calories, so it is a fruit to limit but ideal for athletes who need a real caloric intake. 

However, they are a good source of fiber (laxative properties)  and contain a high concentration of antioxidants. It protects cells against free radicals and therefore against the risk of cancer.  

 

As part of a diet, if you want a sweet food, you can bet on this fruit but do not overdo it!  

 

5. Avocado: 220 calories per 100 g

 

100 g of avocado corresponds to half an avocado. It is certainly full of omega 3, vitamins and minerals but it is still to be limited. To be reasonable, eat 2 whole avocados per week.  

 

6. Bananas: 90 calories per 100 g  

 

Although this fruit is the most consumed tropical fruit in the world, the banana is a very high calorie fruit. The strengths of this fruit: filling, easy to take away, rich in vitamins, potassium, magnesium and fiber. 

Limit its consumption during a diet.  

 

 

7. Grapes: 75 calories per 100 g

8. Persimmon: 66 calories per 100 g

However, these are light sugars, easily assimilated by the body and therefore if you limit this fruit it does not contribute to weight gain. It is also rich in fiber, favorable for transit and therefore also increases the feeling of satiety. It contains a significant amount of vitamin C and vitamin A (one persimmon per day contributes to providing more than three quarters of the daily intake).  

 

9. Cherries: 65 calories per 100 g

 

Moderately caloric, the cherry is  rich in vitamin C, potassium, vitamin V, zinc, iron, manganese, calcium… and the list goes on! It is a good health ally but to be consumed in moderation
