Raspberries – 10 Slimming foods to eat every day
With the Christmas festivities and indulgences over, and the focus now being on “new year, new me” we thought we’d start the working year with some foods that might help dieters. This comes from a Harper’s Bazaar article. We’ve taken some pics and added a little information about each food. So far we’ve featured avocado, which can suppress hunger and yesterday, artichokes, which may help with slimming and tasty chocolate which can make you slimmer if eaten regularly. We’ve also looked at high protein, high-fibre almond butter, an alternative to peanut butter (which be be suitable for allergy sufferers) and then yesterday. For dieters on a budget we have featured water, cottage cheese and, yesterday, gherkins. Finally we looked at eggs, rich in protein and vitamin D. Vitamin D can help optimise fat burning and spinach, full of iron, which can also help burn fat (by delivering the oxygen to the cells needed for fat burn).
Raspberries are our tenth and final slimming food to eat every day. According to the article, raspberries are a “skinny staple” because they help keep you full. On top, they have 85% water volume which may help ward of dehydration. Ongoing research, suggests that raspberries may help dieters lose weight. Apparently, raspberries contain a photonutrient called rheosmin. This may increase the metabolism in our fat cells and via this process help burn fat.
Raspberries can be added to a healthy breakfast of oats and superfood quinoa. Here’s a recipe from Men’s Health. That’s the last of the series, so we hope you are starting to see some benefits already and that raspberries will add to the gains!
