No Diet and No Exercise: Eat This Food To Get The Body Of Your Dreams

Just eat this every day and it will do wonders to your waistline!

No Extra Exercise, No Harsh Dieting

No Extra Exercise, No Harsh Dieting

Instead of maxing out your after-work hours in the gym or putting yourself on an impossible diet, maybe the thing your daily routine is missing is simply pineapple.

First, though, let's clear up a myth: it doesn't just dissolve fat like magic. However, combined with regular physical training and a diet that follows your daily recommended calorie consumption, it can really improve your results.

Why? Here are just a few things this underappreciated fruit can do:

  • Pineapple contains an enzyme called bromelain, which stimulates digestive functions and can even help get rid of cellulite by accelerating protein digestion. It also helps your body fight inflammation. It's often used in medicine to reduce swelling, relieve pain, and help wounds heal faster.
  • In recent research, some studies have also discovered that daily pineapple consumption can accelerate the renewal of connective tissue, making it increasingly recommended for treatments of lesions: bruising, blisters, and injuries caused by rubbing.
  • The Vitamin C in pineapple helps to prevent problems with blood vessels and helps produce collagen within your bones, cartilage, muscles, and blood vessels.
  • The fruit's Vitamin A content contributes to healthy eyesight, while the beta-carotene strengthens your energy levels. Daily pineapple consumption can also reduce the risk of macular degeneration.
  • Its calcium and magnesium will make your bones stronger. And like a cherry on top, just one glass of pineapple juice is enough to receive more than 70% of your daily recommended manganese.
  • The pulp of a pineapple as well as its juice can help digestion by combating abdominal pain and constipation. It can also help with ulcerative colitis or stomach ulcers (but only as a remedy and after a doctor's prescription).

One thing to look out for if you're adding more pineapple to your diet: this tangy fruit can increase the acidity of your stomach, so you'll need to be very careful if you have gastritis or gastric or duodenal ulcers.
