Whether your favorite berries are blueberries, strawberries, blackberries, raspberries, cranberries, or acaí berries, you know you're snaking on something nutritious. Take cranberries, for instance.

Adding fresh berries to your smoothie or oatmeal is a smart choice if you're looking to lose weight, considering they're low in the calorie department. Just one cup of blueberries will give you four grams of dietary fiber and 25% of the recommended daily value for vitamin C, the Mayo Clinic Health System explains.
