Ten foods to help you lose weight

Research shows that certain foods can definitely help you lose weight, according to new study covered in BMJ.

The study involved 124,086 Health Professionals across the USA over some 24 years. The study looked at the benefits of flavonoid compounds and subclasses.

What we found was that certain sub-classes like anthocyanins and proanthocyanidins were particularly effective. And the more you ate, the more weight you seem to lose!

2.    Apples

3.    Pears
