Top 5 spring snack to help you slim down
Spring Snack: Grapefruit
“Studies show that the chemical properties in grapefruit can reduce insulin levels, which promote weight loss and boosts metabolism, plus it’s an excellent source of vitamin A, vitamin C, potassium, and fiber,” says Rathbun.
Just one glass of fresh grapefruit juice in the morning will boost your metabolism.
Spring Snack: Strawberries
This fruit is full of fiber. Strawberries’ fiber content makes them a good choice for weight loss. A study published in the Journal of Nutrition found that people who ate 8 extra grams of fiber for every 1,000 calories per day lost about 4 1/2 pounds. (Women who decreased their fiber intake actually gained weight.) One cup of strawberries has a respectable 3 grams of fiber and more than a full day’s recommended dose of vitamin C—an antioxidant that helps keep skin healthy.
Spring Snack: Cherries
Cherries make a great low-calorie snack for dieters. They are loaded with nutrients that help promote detoxification and powerful antioxidants that help boost immunity. They can also help fight off damaging free radicals.
Spring Snack: Cherry Tomatoes
Cherry tomato is low-calorie, nutrient-rich, water-rich, bite-sized tomato. It is great in salads, recipes or anytime you need a snack.
Spring Snack: Blueberries
Blueberries are full of vitamins and antioxidants. They may also help reduce belly fat! One handful of blueberries on the day is enough to satisfy your craving for sweets.
