Bananas are nutrition powerhouses

In addition to providing for the perfect texture of any smoothie and supporting those of us on set diets to either lose weight or gain weight, bananas are an excellent source of numerous amounts of healing nutrients like minerals (such as potassium, copper, selenium, magnesium, molybdenum and boron), vitamins, amino acids, antioxidants and other phytonutrients.  Bananas are also full of fiber, water and pulp, too, aiding us in suppressing and satisfying our appetites.  And, as Anthony William of Medical Medium alludes to in his book Life-Changing Foods, bananas are one of Nature's gifts for our digestive system, even known to reverse bodily conditions like IBS, Crohn's Disease and Colitis.  Whether eaten raw from the peel, blended up in a smoothie, chopped with your kale or what-have-you, enjoy your bananas and the healing powers they pass along with their pleasurably unique taste and conveniently soothing digestive benefits.

How to lose weight with water

Similar to eating cranberries or even bananas (or pears, or cherries or apples and really any of the other common household fruits that can be eaten for weight loss), drinking an adequate amount of water can and will help to suppress our appetite and promote weight loss for us. Water also helps to support in the digestion of the foods and beverages that we consume, keeping things flowing along their way throughout our entire digestive system and removing excess toxins and wastes from our body, hence causing us to naturally lose weight on the scale.  Additionally, water acts to hydrate our bodies and all of our adjoining body parts (and/or organs and cells) fully, helping us to function at our optimal levels in terms of digestion, assimilation, urination, defecation, perspiration and even detoxification.  While it is beneficial for weight loss, water is truly essential for the all around health and well-being of our bodies (and minds).

Pears, like apples, are also great for losing weight

Full of flavor and packed with phytochemicals, trace minerals and amino acids, pears are one of the world's healthiest foods that you can eat for weight loss

Pears suppress our appetite and prevent overeating

A close kin to the apple, pears are another must-have food to include in your diet.  Pears are known to be high in dietary fiber, offering us that feeling of being full and satisfied with hunger levels to the point that we don't overeat during meals or in between meals either (similar to eating bananas for losing weight).  The sweet flavor that a pear brings satisfies our hunger (and/or suppresses our appetite) and their electrolyte makeup serves to stabilize our blood sugar, giving us natural boosts in energy without the crash afterward.

First things first: If it ain't working, fix it!

Whether the summer months are on the distant horizon or not, we're talking weight loss and health goals big time these days.  With an estimated 1-in-3 Americans now considered medically obese, the world is clearly in need of some proper education about healthy eating habits and lifestyle practices in general. The diet pills, fad diets and bogus workout plans are evidently still not working (nor will they ever work as is).  This is a call to consciousness, if you are tired of being overweight and are ready to make a true change in your lifestyle, you and only you can take the first step!
