Is it really true that fruits make you look fat?

Well I've seen a few articles that says "fruits make you look bloated". Somehow I don't believe in this because people say that eating fruits and vegetables make you slimmer. What about you? What do you think about this idea?

Yes, eating fruits makes you healthy. But, after eating fruits, your stomach will look bloated depends on what fruit you eat and the numbers of fruits you had.

Fruits and veggies are healthy foods, i believe. They mostly comprises of water. And when we eat them, though we eat a lot of them,we would get enough fiber plus more water and get stuffed and feel full easily. And since its mostly water, we get hydrated as well....

Really? I don't know if that is true but I hope not. I'm fond of eating fruits and I actually thought they're healthy for us that it makes us slimmer.

Hello friend, Yes friend some fruits are making you fat. But I think that fruits are very good thing for our health. I like some fruits very much. Mango and pynaple are my favourite fruits. So I eat it in every time in summer. I like the apples in winter. Have a nice day.

Fruits are good for the body, but even then, we should have the right amount of fruit in take on our daily diet. If you eat a whole ball of watermelon, then you'll really get bloated. If we look at recommended dietary allowance, we'd notice that it only tells us to eat a slice or a piece every meal. I also have that wrong perception before. I used to eat 3 whole mangoes in a meal.

In my case, I eat a lots of fruits everyday but my body is still same, the main thing in here is I eat all type of fruits, not only fruit juice, or only one type of fruit. However, I heard from the others women who are quite fat, they said that eating a lots of fruit makes their weight increased, so that I really don't know exactly how eating fruit affects people's weight...it may depend on our body, the eating habit...

When I ate like 3 pounds of apples a day, my stomach looked a bit bloated in the end of the day, so maybe that is what they mean. But it was gone the next day. I think it's just because of the temporary water retention, because otherwise they rather make us slimmer. When I was on a fruit-veggie diet I lost weight, even though I ate a lot of them.

I wouldn't imagine this to be true. I mean, sure they have water in them... But I would think that any time you RETAIN water is when you look and feel bloated, such as if you eat something very salty, I would imagine that would happen. Since there isn't a lot of salt in fruits & veggies, I wouldn't imagine feeling bloated after eating them. In fact, I have never experienced bloating after eating something like a salad. After eating fattening, fried, and salty foods...Definitely. Happy MyLotting!

I do believe that fruit is the most natural and healthy thing you can eat so articles saying that you can eat it and get fat sounds false to me.
