The list is loaded with fruit.
From apples to avocados, bananas to pears, grapes to apricots.
But what about the one that can actually give you energy?
That’s the pomegranate.
“This is a great source of protein, vitamin C, and a great way to add color to your skin,” says Kelly.
“If you’re trying to lose weight, you might be more likely to get rid of excess fat and gain muscle, which is the ultimate goal.”
Kelly says that if you’re going to eat pomegras, it’s best to do it at least once a week.
“Try to eat it with a little bit of oil or fat, but don’t overdo it,” she says.
If you want to get the most nutrition from your pomegaras, the fruit should be ripe, and not in a “sugar rush.”
“There is a lot of research to suggest that pomegans can be more effective in lowering blood sugar, which has been linked to obesity and diabetes,” says Dr. James.
But if you want a healthful dose of antioxidants, pick up a couple of grapefruits, which have a similar texture.
“They’re a great snack, too, but the fruit itself is not the same thing as the pomoe,” says Scott.
And it’s always good to try out a variety of pomega varieties before buying a bottle.
“You’re not going to find a single pomegalut, but there are many pomeganas out there,” says Lisa.
“Just pick a few that you like and then you’re in business.”
