For a boost in spring
When the fine weather returns, many of us feel like taking up a sport. Whether just for the pleasure of outdoor exercise or to shed a few pounds after winter, maintaining a balanced diet can help keep you motivated.
Looking for a natural boost ? Then prunes are your new best friend!
- Prunes are high in fibre, which helps ward off hunger, making them a perfect natural appetite suppressant. Furthermore, non-digestible fibres stay longer in the digestive system, helping to keep you feeling full for longer.
- Adding prunes to your meals can also help to burn fat by stimulating bowel mouvements.
- Alongside their sweet taste, prunes also contain few calories.
Feeling tired ?
Rather than heading straight for a chocolate bar packed full of refined sugar, reach for a handful of dates instead.
6 to 8 dates contain approximately 150 calories. They will give you the energy you need when you are feeling hungry.
