In a study published in September, 2015, researchers from Harvard University found that, while eating more fruit and vegetables can prevent long-term weight gain, specific types can either enhance or curb weight loss efforts. Study results showed benefits in terms of improved weight loss in two ways: First, increased consumption of fruit showed a greater effect than for vegetables for weight loss. Second, the foods showing the strongest weight loss associations were berries, apples/pears, tofu/soy, cauliflower, and cruciferous and green leafy vegetables, according to a release from Harvard's School of Public Health.
The report noted that a possible factor in play is the increased satiety value with fewer calories as partially responsible for the beneficial effects of increasing fruit and vegetable intake, in addition to important vitamins in produce items.
