There are several reasons how this juicy fruit can help you battle the bulge. Watermelon is more than 90% water. Foods high in water fill you up faster. But you can’t live on water alone because it lacks vitamins and nutrients. Watermelon is high in vitamins A, C, B6, thiamine, and lycopene. You get valuable nutrition…and you get full, which means you won’t be eating more calories after eating low-cal, low-fat watermelon. (A wedge contains less than a gram of fat.)
2. Pine Nuts
These tree nuts are high in iron for your blood and magnesium for your bones and heart. Pine nuts can also help prevent migraines and relieve muscle aches and spasms. The real magic of these natural wonders lie in their exceptionally high levels of healthy fatty acids. Aptly named pinolenic acid, it boosts the levels of the “satiety hormone” which makes your brain think you are full. The fatty acids also prevent the formation of belly fat—the most dangerous kind of fat—and it is this fact that earns pine nuts a spot on this list.
