“All fruits can aid in weight loss, if portion sizes are kept under control, including pineapple,” says Keri Gans, MS, RDN, author of The Small Change Diet.
In addition, Vanessa Rissetto, MS, RD, who is also the founder of Culina Health in New York, argues that pineapple can help improve digestion because it contains important fiber. So, what else is contained in pineapple to be considered able to lose weight?

Pineapple is a low-calorie fruit. One slice of pineapple contains only about 42 calories, and a cup of pineapple contains 82 calories and 21 carbohydrates. The carbohydrate content will also fuel the brain and body.
Pineapple is said to be good because it contains bromelain, which is a proteolytic enzyme that breaks down fat in the stomach. These enzymes help break down proteins and make the body increase the absorption of certain nutrients.

“The enzyme bromelain can break down protein into amino acids (a process called proteolysis) and help the body get energy from fat,” explains Vanessa. On the other hand, Lovneet Batra, a well-known nutritionist from Delhi, agrees with what Vanessa said.
“Bromelain aids digestion and makes better protein. Thus helping you gain lean body mass. It also helps mobilize belly fat,” he explained, quoted from Health Shots.
