4 Foods if You're Trying to Lose Weight

Welcome to another day in my life. Today is Saturday and I hope you had a beary safe and great weekend. Dab the AIDS Bear is off doing events this weekend so stay tuned for more pictures soon.

With almost half of people in the United States being overweight, they are always new diet wonders coming out. But in truth, it is all about moderation and healthy eating for most people along with getting exercise. So today I will blog about four foods to eat if you are trying to lost weight.

A cleaned-up diet full of whole, natural foods is essential for weight-loss success. Lucky for us, some of our favorite summer fruits and vegetables are packed with nutrients that work in our favor. Keep your body working at its top potential with these 10 pieces of produce. Fighting fat has never been so delicious.

Raspberries contain the flavonoid anthocyanin, which helps your body produce adiponectin, a hormone that's been linked to lower glucose levels, less cravings, and a higher metabolism. Whether they're fresh or frozen, they're a great source of fiber, an essential nutrient that improves digestion and helps beat bloat; one cup of raspberries offers eight grams of fiber!

Blueberries are much more than a tangy treat for your taste buds. Research out of the University of Michigan found a diet rich in blueberries might change how your body stores and processes sugar for energy and, in turn, diminishes belly fat. Snack on these blue beauties while they're in season to support your weight-loss goals.

Watermelon is 92 percent water, and eating it on a hot day can help you feel your best and help beat bloat that comes from dehydration. This oh-so-refreshing treat also curbs heavy dessert cravings; swap it for a piece of cake or brownie to save tons of calories.

Pineapple is high in the enzyme bromelain, which helps break down protein and ease digestion. Supporting your digestive system supports all your weight-loss goals and beats pesky bloat.

Hope you have a beary safe and great Saturday!

Until we meet again; here's wishing you health, hope, happiness and just enough.
