Fill your belly with what is gorgeous, and you will be gorgeous too.
Red, ripe, and delicious, strawberries mean summer.
But this is no summer vacation for these amazing berries, which work overtime for your health. Research shows that strawberries can stimulate your metabolism and suppress your appetite. They can help you lose weight and even help control blood sugar.
Strawberries can help promote weight loss in three ways:
Strawberries can increase the body’s production of a hormone that stimulates your metabolism and suppresses your appetite.
They can slow the rate of digestion of starchy foods. This helps control the rise in blood sugar that follows a starchy meal. This is a key benefit for those with adult-onset (Type 2) diabetes.
Strawberries also can help your weight-reducing hormones function properly.
Strawberries are a perfect part of The Fat Resistance Diet because one cup contains only 49 calories, and comes loaded with vitamin C, three grams of fiber, and some calcium, magnesium, and potassium. Strawberries give you flavor, color, and aroma, awakening your taste buds to the fresh, natural foods your body needs to be healthy and vital.
Strawberries may also have anti-inflammatory effects, inhibiting the activation of genes and enzymes that promote inflammation. Most of this benefit is due to antioxidants that give ripe strawberries their lush red color. And strawberries may help keep the brain young and fit. Studies with laboratory animals demonstrated benefits of strawberries for the aging brain.
