The moisture content can be calculated by weighing the fruit and then placing it in a drying oven for a definite period of time then removing and weighing again. If you continue this until there is no more loss of weight. The initial weight minus the final weight is the weight of water. this difference multiplied by 100 and divided by the initial weight will give you the percent moisture content.

Fruits and Vegetables are a great healthy choice when trying to lose weight. Fruits and vegetables are a low calorie food that are generally packed with nutritional value. There are some vegetables like celery that are so low in calories that you end up burning more calories eating it than you consume. You also need to be careful that you are eating fruits and vegetables that offer some substance so you are not hungry later. Iceberg lettuce is mainly water and will does not provice much nutritional value or fill you up. Carrots, bananas, and apples are all good choices.

Frozen vegetables typically have the same nutritional value as fresh vegetables. In some cases, frozen vegetables may retain more nutrients since they are frozen at their peak of freshness, whereas fresh vegetables can lose nutrients rapidly if not used immediately.

A low carb diet can be healthy and nutritious if planned properly. Be sure to include fruits and vegetables when planning your meals. Only during the short-term induction phase of your diet are these foods restricted. Non-starchy vegetables and low-sugar fruits are high in nutrient value while being relatively low in carbohydrates. Colorful fruits and vegetables are your best choice. Mix it up with a myriad of colors to get a good variety of nutrients and antioxidants. Red peppers, squash, broccoli and blueberries are tasty and add diversity to your diet.

GAR is ((100-total moisture)/ (100-inherent moisture)) x Calorific Value in ADB So all depends on the moisture. If we assumed total moist 25% and inherent 5% so the calorific value in ADB is (95%/75%) x GAR 3800 = 4800 Gross Calorific Value ADB So all depends on the moisture in the coal...
