Two Important Fat Burning Fruits: Apple and Grapefruit
If you are planning to lose weight here are two fruits that you may wish to include in your diet.
Apples have gained a reputation of keeping the doctor away with its daily consumption. Apart from that, apples can help keep the fats away, too.
This works in two ways: First, eating apples raise your blood glucose (sugar) levels in a safe manner that your body naturally accepts, and keeps this glucose up longer than most sweet foods. In effect, you feel satisfied and full longer, according to researchers. Second, apples are a rich source of soluble fiber which fights hunger pangs by defending it against dangerous dips in your blood glucose level.
An average-sized apple contains only 81 calories. It has no cholesterol, saturated fat or sodium. In fact, the nutrients in apples helps lower the level of bad cholesterol which is already in your blood stream, in effect, your blood pressure also lowers to an acceptable and healthy level.
It is also rich in natural galacturonic acid, which contributes to its effectiveness as a fat and cholesterol fighter. In addition grapefruit also fights against atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries) and heart disease. To tame its tangy flavor, you may try sprinkling some cinnamon, or salt, depending on your taste preference.
