Losing weight is not an easy task. Our bodies are evolved to store fat to protect against famine’s periods, but since millions of us are now eating way more than our bodies need, we end up gaining too much fat.

Luckily, in addition to calorie restriction, there are a few things you can do in order to extend your weight loss in a healthy way. Fruits that contain the antioxidant anthocyanin (a flavonoid) have been shown in many scientific studies to improve the effects of a weight loss diet. You can usually spot an anthocyanin-rich fruit because it will be some shade of purple or red.
