The secret to staying skinny may not be such a secret anymore. A new study looks at why certain fruits and vegetables can help you avoid weight gain over time.
It has to do with the types of natural compounds found in a variety of fruits. And it turns out the compounds found in apples, pears and berries may help your body avoid packing on the pounds.
These fruits are high in flavonoids, compounds already known to be linked to weight loss. In the fight against the scale, you may have heard about the seemingly magical benefits of drinking green tea. At least part of that is thanks to flavonoids.
