The Lowest Calorie Fruits to Enjoy Right Now, Per Nutritionists

Nature’s candy makes the best snack. Looking to satisfy your sweet tooth but want to keep your calorie count low? The low-calorie fruits on this list will fit the bill. Each of these fruits, from apples to strawberries, clock in at under 100 calories per serving—and also provide some solid health benefits. They are rich in vitamins and nutrients that can benefit everything from your immune system to blood pressure regulation. Wondering what to pair with healthy fruit, so you’ll feel satisfied? “While many people want to cut calories by limiting snacks to just fruit, remember that you’ll stay full for longer by pairing fruit with protein and fat. A tablespoon of peanut butter, slice of cheese, or a handful of trail mix will help keep you feeling satisfied while still keeping calories in check,” says Kaytee Hadley, M.S., R.D.N., I.F.M.C.P.. Meet the experts: Keri Glassman, M.S., R.D., C.D.N., is the founder and president of Nutritious Life. Christine Byrme, M.P.H., R.D., is a non-diet dietitian and the owner of Ruby Oak Nutrition in Raleigh, NC. Amy Gorin, M.S., R.D.N., is the CEO of Plant Based with Amy and Master the Media. It’s also important to note that 90% of Americans don’t eat the recommended two servings of fruit daily, says Hadley. “My goal is to help people find the ones they enjoy and can eat regularly so they can get all the health benefits from the fiber, micronutrients, and phytochemicals that fruit provides,” she shares. But if you’re looking to cut back on calories for weight loss, start with these lowest calorie fruits. *Additional expert input: Kaytee Hadley, M.S., R.D.N., I.F.M.C.P., is a gut health dietitian and founder of Holistic Health and Wellness in Richmond, VA.

The 3 Dirtiest Body Parts People Forget To Wash Properly

It is easy to say that we wash every inch of our bodies and are perfectly clean when we step out of the shower, which isn't always the case. Unfortunately, there are parts of our bodies that we aren’t cleaning, according to a new study by researchers at George Washington University. The ‘Grandmother Hypothesis’ is a study focusing on the idea that there are three body parts our grandmother would insist on us scrubbing. The first of these parts is behind the ears, as anywhere with a crease or fold can lead to a build-up of bodily fluids and dead skin cells. A build-up of dirt or dead skin can lead to an inflammatory skin condition known as seborrheic dermatitis, which can cause your skin to flake. “Letting the water get it” isn’t sufficient for in-between your toes as your feet sweat and when not washed, this can lead to a build-up of bacteria. Lastly, wash your belly button as, as well as being moist, it has folds and creases, which can become a breeding ground for dead skin cells and bacteria.
