Description:

There are about 100 calories in a Pear, and about 16 grams of sugar.

Pears can be great weight loss food, 98% of their energy is from carbs-- which contain half the calories as fat.

Pears are also excellent for lowering cholesterol quickly. Pears and green vegetables in particular can be more effective than drugs like Lipitor. With a ton fewer side effects.

For those of you following the PEERtrainer Cheat System, we encourage people to eat health promoting foods. But we want to make sure that people do keep an eye on sugar and calories, and keep a very solid focus on green vegetables.

A great idea with fruit is to eat it for breakfast, and eat different fruits throughout the week. Maybe one day pick up a couple pears and the store. On your next visit, pick up some apples.

But definitely go heavy on the greens, and if you do have a sweet tooth and want to eat more pears, get in the full 8 oz and earn the extra "cheat."

Pear Nutrition Summary

Like most fruits and vegetables, Pears are very good for you and contain powerful health promoting properties.

Pears are an excellent source of dietary fiber, vitamin C, copper, and vitamin K. Pears help to lower cholesterol.

Can You Eat Pears On A Diet?

Pears are a nutrient dense food. There are 98 calories in a pear. The average pear is equal to one weight watchers point, but one should really eat as many pears as they like and still lose weight.

How Pears Reduce Your Cholesterol

Most people can benefit from a reduction in cholesterol. Pears in particular can help in this process because they are high in fiber.

Here is how whfoods.com describes this process:

"Fiber in the colon binds to bile salts and carries them out of the body. Since bile salts are made from cholesterol, the body must breakdown more cholesterol to make more bile, a substance that is also necessary for digestion. The end result is a lowering of cholesterol levels."

How Do Pears Fare On The New Weight Watchers Points Plus?

The debate over how important the sugar content in fruit like pears is has taken a new turn when Weight Watchers changed how they count fruit in the points system.

All fruit, including pears, is now considered zero points. Although we are hearing that there are some limits to this, and some fruit and vegetable only recipes which have some point value.

At PEERtrainer, we find that people do really well when they take a hard look at their overall sugar consumption.

If you eat a diet that is very low in sugar, fruit will likely not be that big a deal. If you eat a lot of foods containing sugar, (dairy has a ton in it for example) then you might want to take a closer look.

Additionally, as you scroll down the two lists in the Cheat System, you'll see that the foods that are low in sugar, tend to be high in nutrients.

One of the reasons that coffee is counted as a "Cheat" in the PEERtrainer system is that despite the low calories in coffee people usually drink it with cream and sugar.

We do know that this, and most other issues in the area of food is highly controversial. But if you have questions about things we focus on, know that there is usually a very good "big picture" thing going on. If we help you get your sugar down, your green vegetables up and get you moving in a gentle manner, good things will happen.
