Blueberries Are a Fat Fighting Food


Heart Shaped Bowl of Blueberries

Blueberries are well-known for their health benefits, but new studies are showing that they also make a great fat fighting food. If you’re trying to bust belly fat, then consider adding these tasty morsels to your daily diet. How do blueberries help fight fat, aiding in weight loss? Here is a closer look.

Catechins Help Burn Belly Fat

Catechins, a natural antioxidant found in blueberries, is known to give the fat burning genes in your belly fat cells a kick start, which specifically aids in the loss of belly fat. Some research has even shown that eating foods with catechins can double weight loss and boost abdominal fat loss by as much as 77%. 

Low in Calories

If you’re eating a low calorie diet, blueberries are a great addition. They are low in calories, yet they are packed with important nutrients. This nutritional powerhouse is packed with potassium, iron, vitamin C, manganese, riboflavin, vitamin E, magnesium, antioxidants, and folate. You can have a full cup of blueberries for only 85 calories, and they contain no sodium, cholesterol, or fat.

Great Source of Fiber

Blueberries are an excellent source of insoluble fiber. Getting plenty of insoluble fiber helps to speed up your digestive process, and this can aid in weight loss as well. This fiber makes you feel full faster, helping to curb cravings that lead to weight gain.

Beyond their fat loss benefits, blueberries offer a number of other health benefits as well. For example, they are packed with anti-aging antioxidants that help fight off free radicals. They also contain phytonutrients and proanthycyanidins that help to prevent disease. Blueberries also taste amazing and they make a great addition to any meal, making them a great addition to your diet if you want to lose more fat.

MRC of Vancouver started me going in my attempt to loose 30 years of weight gain!! I have been using their program for about 18 months and have actually lost 30 pounds. I have changed the way I eat. I've learned what foods are best for ME. By analyzing my DNA and hormones, they helped me learn to eat what was right for me. I have "tweeked" my purchases and preparation of food to make eating healthy and still fun for me. I eat lots of veggies and salads and include a healthy diet of protein. These are very satisfying. Do I "cheat" now and then? Yes, but I don't like how I feel after eating sugar and lots of carbs so I return to my good foods quickly and continue to see my weight drop. I walk my little dog four times a day and have a part-time job that allows me a lot of movement. I feel so healthy and wonderful. It's easy to continue to eat and live a more healthy lifestyle! When I confessed about eating the wrong "foods", the gals simply encouraged me and gave me fresh ideas to satisfy my taste buds. I always felt I could be honest during my consultations with no fear of being lectured! I plan to continue until I reach my desired weight. I expect to reach my goal by 2017. After I reach my weight goal, I plan to remain in good health with my new found healthy way of eating the calories I need to maintain my proper weight. My Dr. is very pleased at my progress. She wondered how I have lost 30 pounds.
