Top 5 Fat-Burning Fruits Easily Available in Your Area: Lose Weight Safely By Eating!
Top 5 fat-burning fruits! Imagine losing weight easily by just eating delicious fruits! And the best part is, they're easily available anywhere and very cheap--ideal for your cheap health and fitness with middle income budget!


Number one is lemon fruit. It's foreign citrus fruit but now made very easily available in Manila. Last Saturday, I saw 3 big lemons together sold for only P50 along the sidewalk in Munoz. If you don't see any around your place, then use kalamansi, which belongs to the lemon family.

Anyway, lemon or kalamansi, tastes acidic but when taken fresh, it really alkalizes your body. Just make sure to take it right after slicing and squeezing the fresh fruit. Here's how Care2.Com puts it in one of its articles:
They may seem acidic based on taste but in the process of being metabolized by the body, they actually alkalize our bodily fluids and tissues.
Squeeze one fruit and mix in water with honey and drink. Don't use sugar.

Lemon is a powerful liver detoxifier. That makes your liver a stronger body organ that helps your body digest and burn more fats.


Grapefruit or "Suha" in Tagalog, is among ideal fat-burning fruits. Johns Hopkins University did a study on it and found that women who ate suha daily could lose some 20 pounds in 13 weeks, even without observing strict diets.


Being rich in lycopene, especially when cooked, tomatoes can stimulate production of carnitine, an amino acid that speeds up fat burning. So, make it a habit to include tomatoes to when cooking food dishes. That's why I add lots of tomatoes when cooking Pinakbet.


It used to be when you saw avocado in markets only in season. But nowadays, you see them all year round. It's rich in Omega 9 fatty acids (the ones you see in Olive oil). This increases fat burning by converting it to energy faster. That's faster metabolism for you by just eating fat-burning fruits.


Coconuts have lots of medium chain triglycerides (MCFAs) that hastens metabolism by some 30 percent, says experts. Moreover, eating them makes you full quickly. It also helps the thyroid do a better job, and we all know the role of the thyroid in burning fat.

There ends the 5 top fruits.

But wait....

God's Fruit

Ever heard of God's fruit--or fruit of the Spirit? First 4 of God's fruit (not "fruits") are love, joy, peace and patience, among 9 in all. This is free for anyone who wants to live the Life of Jesus. Staying happy and peaceful amid all circumstances gets rid of stress and eliminates overeating.

How does God's fruit burn fat? Well, a happy and healthy person has normal body systems, one of which is the natural body system of regulating and burning fats.

HOW HEALTHY IS BANANA CUE? For Banana Lovers Like Me

If you're a banana lover like me, you probably love eating banana cue and turon as well. Banana cue is dip frying "saba" or cardava banana rolled in brown sugar. Turon, on the other hand, is "saba" or cardava banana wrapped in egg-roll wrapper, the type used for spring rolls, sprinkled with brown sugar. Sometimes, they even put slices of langka or jackfruit in it. SM Save More outlets sellthem for only P15 per big piece.

Anyway, if you eat these cooked bananas, what health benefit do you get? Do you get all the health benefits bananas give?

Cooked bananas give you dietary fibers, nothing more, nothing less. Well, you also get some carbohydrates from the brown sugar and fat from the cooking oil. By the way, included here is sweetened "saba" which is banana boiled in water with brown sugar and sometimes added with vanilla extract. At least with this, you eliminate cooking oil.

Bananas are supposed to be super healthy with lots of vitamins and minerals …

HEALTH BENEFITS OF PATOLA: Don't Judge a Veggie by It's Rough Look

"Pulis patola" is a term popularized in Filipino movies on supposedly lousy cops. It denotes an inept policeman trained in a far-flung province where cops know nothing except probably to eat and sleep. But in the Filipino movies, the rustic "patola" cop turns out to be a good and skillful cop who manages to ruin a powerful syndicate singlehandedly.

Thus, "patola" or sponge gourd is a common rough-looking vegetable almost nobody pays attention to (some even smirks at the sigh to fit) and considered low class vegetable. Why "sponge" gourd? The core of the fruit looks like crude sponge, but it sure doesn't taste like one. Patola is  often mixed in soups, especially plain and ordinary miswa soup to add some sweet flavor to it. It's also cheap--just perfect for anyone aiming for health and fitness with middle income budget.

Here are some of its health benefits:
It's low in calories. If you're trying to lose weight, eat more of this to …

Harvard Study Says Chicken Skin is Healthy!

You used to take off chicken skin because doctors and nutritionists said it's bad for your heart. So, with broken hearts we did so, stripping the golden brown and juicy skin from our roasted or grilled chicken and couldn't believe we were actually throwing away all that goodness into the trash.

And we wondered why God made chicken skin so delicious just so we could throw it all away.

But a new Harvard study says chicken skin is actually good for your health---to be specific, your heart health. It says most of the fatty part of chicken skin (the most mouthwatering one) is unsaturated and healthy for the heart. And that's according to studies done by the Harvard School of Public Health, no less.

Unsaturated fat can lower your cholesterol and blood pressure, the Harvard school said, according to an article on The Daily Meal site titled "Doctor's Got It All Wrong!" So, if the study is correct (I'm waiting for another "study" to contradict this---al…
