March 20th officially marked the return of spring! This is the perfect opportunity to embark on a little fruit-based detox to slim down without having to go through any suffering.
Apples for fat burning
Apples are the perfect fruit for slimming down and permanently losing weight. The pectin they contain make them a natural appetite suppressant, ideal when you are feeling a bit peckish! As a bonus, they limit the absorption of certain fats, which is why they are recommended for people with high cholesterol. And since they are available all year round at the shops, they are really easy to find!
Lemon for detox
The juice from a lemon in a little warm water, to be sipped every morning on an empty stomach, is the best way to detoxify your body! Be careful, this is not a fruit that eliminates excess weight, but rather an ally to help your body get rid of all its nasty toxins. A flat stomach is then just around the corner.
Pineapple to eliminate toxins
This fruit, which can make you feel like you’re somewhere exotic without ever leaving your sofa, also proves to be very useful when it comes to getting rid of fat. Rich in fibre and water, it has diuretic properties. Hurry up and buy some, because it's almost the end of the season!
Bananas to satiate your hunger
If you haven't yet started eating bananas for breakfast, it's high time you did! Studies show that this fruit promotes the proper functioning of lipase (an enzyme found in the pancreas) and thus allows for better digestion of fats. In addition, bananas make you feel full and considerably reduce the number of calories consumed at the start of the day.
Strawberries to stimulate digestion
It's almost the season for these delicious berries! And the good news is that they are also very low in calories and high in water content, two solid points when it comes to weight loss. Rich in fibre, they will stimulate your intestinal digestion and promote the elimination of toxins... provided you eat them plain, not under a mountain of whipped cream!
