All the berries are considered to have a low fructose content because of which they are suggested for losing weight. If we talk about winter fruits guava, oranges and apple are some of the good fruits for you. One thing to keep in mind is that consuming whole fruit is considered good for you instead of juice. All the fruits contain water in them.
