Keep the Peel on to Loose Weight

Posted 01/29/2013 | By HealthCorps

Apple skins contain ursolic acid, which has been found to boost muscle and brown fat.  Muscle and brown fat in turn, boost your metabolic rate.

Blueberries may reduce belly fat by revving up your metabolism and by modifying the impact of your storage genes on foods after digestion.

Pears are rich in catechins and flavenoids, which may help you to ward off excess weight gain.

Bergamot oranges have compounds that may help to lower cholesterol and also help with weight loss.

All fruits and vegetables have fiber which helps to fill you up,  so eat from a broad range of colors and clean the skin thoroughly if you are keeping the peel on!!
