Pineapple is a tropical fruit that is seriously slimming. This tropical treat transforms any dish into a healthy delight. In fact, one cup of chunks weighs in at only 75 calories, zero (0) grams of fat and 24 grams of metabolism reviving vitamin C. A serving of pineapple also packs a worth of manganese, a mineral that stabilizes blood glucose levels to ward off the crashes that cause cravings and excess belly fat. But what really makes pineapple a health star is bromelain. This unique anti-inflammatory enzyme smooths away cellulite by dissolving the dimple-causing toxins under the skin that slow circulation of lymph fluid. Bromelain can also improve the appearance of varicose veins by 67 percent in as little as two weeks. Plus it optimize digestion and relieves aches and pains. To reap the biggest benefits of bromelain, slice a fresh pineapple or grab a container of cut-up fruit in the produce department. Or you could go with canned pineapple, it contains less of the potent enzyme but it's still full of slimming vitamins and minerals and at less than a dollar per can, it's a steal.
