Although it is best to eat fruits in the morning and in the afternoon, there is one that stands out above the others to take at dinner, since it helps to lose weight and end insomnia. We tell you what it is and why
If you don't sleep well lately and also, like almost all Spaniards, you want to lose a few kilos, what you should watch out for are especially dinners.
To end insomnia and lose weight, we must be aware of what we eat throughout the day, and especially after 6:00 p.m., since that is when the metabolism begins to slow down. The last meal of the day is essential, since if you eat too many carbohydrates your blood sugar level can destabilize in the middle of the night, waking you up and making you fat.
Although the ideal is to have protein and healthy fats for dinner, there are many people who cannot go to bed without having fruit. And despite the fact that it is a very healthy food and loaded with vitamins and nutrients, it contains fructose, that is, sugar. This means that the ideal is not to eat it at night for dinner.

However, not all fruits are created equal, and there are some better and worse ones to take late in the day. And there is one, in particular, that is better than the rest for this occasion. It is also in season now, so it will not be difficult to find it at a good price.
The best fruit to eat for dinner
The best fruit you can have when the sun goes down is the apple. Its low caloric index (116 calories per piece), its large amount of fiber (5.4 grams per unit) and its high satiating power make this fruit the most suitable option to eat at dinner.

Scientific studies have shown that apples are also good for weight loss. In this research it was found that those who ate this fruit lost more weight than those who did not.
In addition, another review conducted among more than 124,000 people determined that those who ate apples daily lost an average of half a kilo more, in a period of four years, than those who did not.
This food, as it is not citric or has too many carbohydrates, is recommended to take at the last minute.
Apples yes, but without peeling them
The apples are good to take at any time of the day, but yes, you have to eat them unpeeled, preferably.
The skin contains 11% more fiber than its interior, as well as 300% more vitamin K, 140% more vitamin A, 115% more vitamin C, and a long etcetera.
In addition, the exterior of apples is enriched with quercetin and triterpenoids, nutrients that help fight cancer.
Fruits to avoid at night
At night you should avoid eating acidic fruits such as oranges, tangerines, grapes, pineapple, plums or blueberries, as they will prevent you from falling asleep and can cause heartburn.
It is also not advisable to dine on kiwi, banana, strawberries, raspberries or mango, since they contain a lot of fructose, which your body will convert into sugar and, by not wasting it because it is night, it will become fat.
Undiagnosed or untreated type 1 diabetes can cause weight loss. Glucose builds up in the bloodstream if insulin isn't available to move it into the body's cells. When glucose levels become high, the kidneys work to get rid of unused sugar through urine (pee). This causes weight loss due to dehydration and loss of calories from the sugar that wasn't used as energy.
