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.

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.
