Are you Bikini ready?????
Well, it is that time of year again....bikini season!!! I know, I know it makes you want to scream and head for the hills, but here is something that might make bearing your beach bod easier. Dr. Walden was on Fox News this week talking about some new research that has come out about blueberries. That is right, those little blue unassuming berries are now considered a "super food". The medical community has always been aware that blueberries are full of antioxidants and other helpful vitamins, but now research shows that they have fat burning qualities as well. Not only are they able to keep fat at a distance, but it especially helps bust that unwanted and stubborn belly fat!! Did the heavens just open and angels sing???? YES!!!! This new study was conducted on two groups of mice...both given high fat diets, but one group was fed blueberries as well. The group of mice that had the diet with the addition of blueberries showed significant fat loss....especially around the midsection. You can find these helpful fat busting antioxidants in most dark colored berries such as blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries. It is also good news that these sweet treats are part of a well balanced diet, and they really help to curb those unwanted sugar cravings. So, run to the nearest store and buy that bikini and sunblock and head for the beach! For all the ins and outs of this cool new study check out the exclusive interview with Dr. Walden below!!!
