In our endless search for something --anything --to help
us reduce our waist size, we now have an ally.  Blueberries.

Blueberries, according to a number of studies, can help to
reduce abdominal fat. They also help to reduce our overall
triglyceride levels, cholesterol and blood sugar.  Overall,
blueberries are the bets fruit to eat for breakfast or any
meal for that matter.

The most recent study on the effectiveness of blueberries
found that rats who ate 2% of their diets in blueberries
saw significant decreases in metabolic syndrome --that
syndrome caused by poor dietary habits and sedentary
lifestyles shared by over 60% of Americans in which waist
size expands, heart attack and diabetes risk increases.  If
you eat a 1800 to 2000 calories diet a day, that would be
an equivalent of about 4 cups of blueberries.  The
measurements in belly fat were taken after consumption of
blueberries for 90 days.































The April 23, 2009
study on blueberries, conducted by the
University of Michigan, was lead by Dr. Mitchell Seymour
and Dr. Stephen Bolling.  The researchers speculate that
phytochemicals, powerful antioxodiants in blueberries, are
responsible for the lowering of blood sugar, triglycerides,
cholesterol and belly fat.

Perhaps the biggest surprise of the study was that the
blueberries seemed actually to change the way the genes
work. "Blueberry intake affected genes related to
fat-burning and storage", Dr. Seymour said.
