May 14, 2008

Oranges can help streamline your silhouette. Researchers at Arizona State University at Mesa found that people who have the most vitamin C in their blood have the lowest body-fat percentages. That’s because the vitamin helps your body burn fat more efficiently. Aim to get at least 60 milligrams a day. Other great foods packed with the vitamin? Guava, cauliflower, green peppers, blackberries, strawberries, and mangos.
