15 Fruits Lowest in Calories

Fruits are one of the healthiest and most nutrient dense food groups: they are a great source of fiber, vitamins, antioxidants and water. They are also one of the lowest calorie foods and are therefore great for anyone trying to lose weight.

Not all fruits are created equal, however. Some are higher in natural sugars, and calories than others.

The list below is designed to provide you with the lowest-calorie fruits. These include strawberries, peaches, cantaloupe, honeydew melon, grapes, blackberries, and papaya. For more, see the complete nutrient ranking of fruits low in calories.

About Nutrient Targets

Setting targets can provide a guide to healthy eating.

Some of the most popular targets include:
  • Daily Value (%DV) - The %DV is a general guideline for everyone and accounts for absorption factors. It is the most common target in the U.S. and is the target on the nutrition labels of most products. It is set by the U.S. FDA.
  • Reference Dietary Intake (%RDI) - The Reference Dietary Intake (RDI) is a customized target accounting for age and gender. It is set by the U.S. Institute of Medicine. The RDI for amino acids is set by the U.N. World Health Organization. The daily value (%DV) builds on the reference dietary intake to create a number for everyone.
  • Adequate Intake (%AI) - Sets a target for Omega 3 and Omega 6 fats. The Adequate Intake is also set by the U.S. Institute of Medicine. It represents a number to ensure adequacy but lacks the same level of evidence as the Reference Dietary Intake. In short, the number is less accurate than the RDI.
  • See the Guide to Recommended Daily Intakes for more information.
