Fruit Consumption and Adiposity Status in Adults: A Systematic Review of Current Evidence

Frequent consumption of fruits may result in healthier weight in middle-aged adults.

This meta-analysis examined whether fondness for fruits favors weight gain in adults. Researchers compiled data from 11 studies.

Researchers noted that adequate intake of fruits lowered the odds of accumulating excess body weight in middle-aged adults. In contrast, increased risk of weight gain was found among individuals who enjoyed consuming fruit juices. The data from this study reveal that consistent consumption of fruits may help middle-aged adults to keep their weight within a healthy range.
