berries strawberry blueberries for weight loss

If you want to lose the weight, it’s time to get up close and personal with your fat. There’s two kinds—the white, and the beige. While the former is of the stubborn variety, the latter melts to produce heat and energy in the body. So, perhaps the easiest way to keep the weight off is to replace one for the other. As you would have it, that might indeed be possible.

More common among infants, beige fat goes on a downward spiral as you get older. But, converting white to beige is as simple as loading up on fruits on a daily basis.

According to a study by researchers Min Du and Songbo Wang at Washington State University, grapefruits, berries and others can make the change courtesy resveratrol, a type of antioxidant that’s present in fruits, which makes them an obesity fighter. The recommended consumption of 12oz resveratrol per day will help you burn more calories.

This study was conducted on mice: They were given 0.1 percent of resveratrol that saw white fat turn into active, energy-burning brown fat. Resveratrol increases oxidation of fats to prevent obesity and metabolic dysfunction.

Blueberries and red grapes are the best sources of resveratrol. But, this antioxidant is present in high quantities in peanuts and dark chocolate too. What are you waiting for? Load up!
