I recently stumbled upon an ad for an e-book which promises to provide readers with a list of “fat-fighting” foods which you can actually eat, instead of avoid. The result is that the foods that you will consume will be actively fighting the fat on your diet. This is especially helpful for those who are tired of looking for ways to reduce the food on their plate in order to shed off those excess pounds. I decided to have my own list of fat-fighting foods and this is what I have come up with.
The first item on our fat-fighting foods series is apples. Apples are a great source of dietary fibers and vitamin C. The cliché about an apple a day keeping the doctor away holds true – since there are dozens of health benefits that you can enjoy from apples.
However, the reason why this is number one in our list of fat-fighting foods is that the skin of the fruit contains pectin. This is a type of insoluble fiber which serves as a natural appetite suppressant.
When you are really hungry, grab the largest apple that you have in the kitchen – whether it is green or red. The bulky fibrous content of apples will help you feel full immediately. As a result, your hunger pangs are sated, and your tendency to overeat will be significantly controlled. Sounds too easy? That’s because it is. Watch out for the next food item in our fat-fighting food series.
