Doctor Neal Barnard has identified a product that can aid in weight loss and positively impact the human body. It turns out to be the popular berry that can easily substitute for calorie-laden desserts.

According to the doctor, if someone is trying to loose weight, they should add blueberries to their grocery basket. Barnard believes that these berries help with weight loss and serve as an excellent alternative to fried, fatty, and overly sweet desserts.

However, if you're not fond of blueberries, you can opt for raspberries. This berry is also considered helpful in weight loss.

Why blueberries are beneficial

According to the doctor, the benefit of blueberries lies in them being a source of fiber. Additionally, by replacing regular desserts with these berries, you automatically reduce the number of calories consumed throughout the day.

Moreover, this berry contains a plant pigment anthocyanin. This substance can influence metabolism and even curb appetite. Furthermore, as previously established, blueberries can help combat visceral fat.

It's important to consider that one should choose a diet and eating regimen only after consulting with a doctor. Each product can affect the human body differently, causing allergies or other reactions. Therefore, it's essential to heed the advice of a specialist who is aware of your health condition.
