Fruits and vegetables are 70%- 80% water, so they help you stay well hydrated even on hot summer days. Raspberries are the most slimming fruit of all. Raspberries contain a unique compound that takes off pounds three times faster than proven fat-burners like hot peppers. Eating 8 ounces of raspberries a day do the trick, researchers say.
1. Grapefruit controls cravings…It stabilizes blood sugar, which is why in studies, grapefruit eaters lost an average of 3.6 pounds and as much as 10 pounds- in three months. To tap into the weight loss powers- eat 1/2 grapefruit or an 8oz glass of grapefruit juice with each meal.
2. Apples keep you satisfied…That’s because they are full of fiber and fill you up. Women who ate three apples a day lost up to three pounds in three months according to a Brazilian study. In another study, women who ate three apples a day and exercised regularly lost an average of 17 pounds in three months.
3. Pineapple prevents hunger pangs…A one-cup serving of canned pineapple provides 43% of RDA for chromium– a mineral shown to keep hunger pangs at bay. In one study, taking 600 mg. of the mineral each day stopped carb cravings in 65% of women who complained of having the munchies when wrestling with the blues.
