In today's ever-popular low-carb craze, you might be tempted to shun fruits from your diet, worried that the sugar and carbs will keep you from reaching your weight-loss goals. While it's true that there are varieties you should avoid, other fruits can actually assist with weight loss thanks largely to fiber, a nutrient that keeps you feeling full and satisfied for fewer calories. Here, you'll find 10 fruits that are loaded with the stuff. Snack on them, cook with them, and feel slimmer, too.



Apples

Sweet, delicious apples are loaded with fiber, which keeps you satisfied between meals by regulating your blood sugar. For the perfect post-workout snack, top half an apple with peanut butter — protein helps build and repair muscle.



Oranges

Oranges are rich in fiber but also water, and staying hydrated can help curb cravings. Try this energizing citrus smoothie to power through an afternoon slump.



Raspberries

Raspberries have the highest fiber content of any fruit, at 9 grams per cup. They're sweet and tart — perfect on their own, or baked into a high-protein, low-sugar lemon raspberry muffin.



4

Grapefruit

Grapefruit boasts naringin, a compound that research suggests may lower blood sugar and promote weight loss. Try this spiced honey broiled grapefruit, a flavor-packed way to kickstart your day.



5

Cantaloupe

"Melons like honeydew and cantaloupe are great for weight loss because they're high in fiber and lower in sugar, despite the fact that they're sweet," Shauna Sacco, MS, RDN, a certified personal trainer and registered dietitian in Houston, told POPSUGAR. For a healthy and satisfying breakfast, fill a cantaloupe with protein-rich Greek yogurt.



6

Pears

One medium-size pear contains about 20 percent of your daily recommended fiber intake, making it a healthy, filling snack. Try adding pears to a nutrient-rich smoothie.



7

Pomegranate seeds

Like many of the other fruits on this list, juicy pomegranate seeds are high in satisfying fiber. "You can often buy pomegranate seeds frozen, which makes them an easy and great snack for weight loss," Sacco said. But they're also ideal for topping a salad, like this one with roasted pear and spinach.



8

Peaches

Despite their sweetness, stone fruits (AKA those with pits) are relatively low in sugar, and have been shown to fight back against obesity. Try roasting them for this unique take on bruschetta.



9

Cherries

Cherries are high in fiber and low on the glycemic index, meaning they won't cause your blood sugar to spike. Pop them one by one, or try making these healthy cherry yogurt popsicles.



10

Blueberries

Blueberries are famed for their heart-healthy antioxidants, but research has suggested that they may also help reduce belly fat. Whip up this vegan blueberry sherbert for an indulgent dairy-free dessert.
