The Fat-Burning Fruit Salad
Can fruit salad help in your weight loss goals? It sure can! But on the other hand, if you use the wrong combination of fruits, it can backfire on you and keep your weight at a standstill. Here’s one of the best fruit salad recipes I use for weight loss:
– 3 cups chopped watermelon
– 1 can peaches in 100% juice
– 1 can pineapples in 100% juice
– 1 cup chopped strawberries
– 1 cup grapes
– 1 1/2 cups blueberries
– 2 Tbsp lemon juice– (optional: 1/4 cup chopped grapefruit)–
Simply add all the ingredients except the peaches, pineapples and the lemon juice. When adding in the peaches and pineapple, drain off about half of the juice in a separate container. You don’t need it for this recipe. Then, add the lemon juice last and toss.
Now for the good part. Here’s why this works to burn off excess pounds:
Watermelon – Eating less to lose weight isn’t easy if you’re always hungry — the key is to eat foods that help you feel full for longer. Watermelon is a good candidate for prolonging fullness. Each wedge has 5 percent of the daily recommended intake for fiber, which slows digestion and promotes satiety.
