There are 74 calories in a one cup serving of Apricots.

They are a good food for weight loss, if you eat a diet rich in green vegetables as well.

The thing you want to keep an eye on with Apricots is that while the calorie count is low, the sugar is pretty high.

For those of you following the PEERtrainer Cheat System, you will be counting any serving of Apricot after the first serving.

You don't need to be overly zealous in counting your Cheats, but we do find that if you keep the right side of the list in check, and make sure to earn your incentives, you'll do pretty well without driving yourself nuts.

For those of you following Weight Watchers, we had written this comment a few years ago:

"1 weight watcher point, though one should really not count fruits and vegetables as a point, or at least halve the point value Weight Watchers tells you to. They should be doing a better job promoting the consumption of fruits and veggies."

As is turns out, Weight Watchers did go in this direction, and now allow unlimited fruits and vegetables in their new Points Plus program.

PEERtrainer is taking a slightly different path, in that we limit certain fruits, but highly incentivize the consumption of green vegetables.

Our approach is summarized in a short blog post that you can read here, and our system can be downloaded for free.

If you know how to count a calorie, you can easily follow our system.

Summary Of The Health Benefits Of Apricot:

Apricots are thought to be protective against degenerate eye disease.

Apricots are a source of vitamin A, vitamin C, dietary fiber and potassium. They contain powerful antioxidants.

If you are interested in the health promoting properties of fruits and vegetables, you will be interested to know that they all have very different aggregate nutrition rankings.

The most well known food ranking system is the one developed by Dr. Joel Fuhrman that you see through every Whole Foods store in the US.
