Rule 19 of how to EAT THE CAKE AND NOT GET FAT is….eat antioxidants!
So, you know how it works by now right?
I’l explain to you what it is and then I’ll give you a list of foods that have high antioxidants that you NEED to add to your diet.
Antioxidants protect your body’s cells from damage. Cell damage happens naturally as you age, but also when you’re exposed to things like pollution, cigarette smoke, x-ray, alcohol and sun.
Cell damage can lead to problems like heart disease, diabetes, strokes, Alzheimer’s and cancer (especially skin cancer).
A good amount of antioxidants can help to support your: respiratory system, your metabolism and you natural probiotics (the things that help us fight infections and inflammations).
So basically if you want a long happy healthy life you should have a lot of it.
The daily recommended amount of it is 200mg but there’s a lot of research that connects larger amount (than the 200 mg) of antioxidants with weight loss and I support those researches and I think you should to!
Now here is a list of antioxidant rich foods:
· All kind of berries with blueberry on the lead
· Green tea (try the one that is LOW on caffeine )
· Apples (all kinds with red delicious on the lead)
· All kinds of beans with small red on the lead
And now are you ready for the food with the most antioxidants that you NEED in your diet?
That’s right! You read right. One of the many benefits of dark chocolate is to protect you with the crazy amount of antioxidants in it, so go and eat some and remember: if you want to EAT THE CAKE AND NOT GET FAT you need to eat the cake because the dark chocolate in it can help you lose weight.
