The Surprising Fruit That May Keep You Slim

You love fruit, but guess which kind may have the power to actually fight obesity. The surprising news...
Apples are chock-full of health benefits (need I repeat the old saying? OK, I'll spare you), but did you know that a compound in apple peels may fight obesity and help with weight loss?

A new study conducted by University of Iowa researchers found that the substance called ursolic acid, found in apple peels, protected mice from obesity by promoting the growth of muscle and brown fat (aka, good fat), both known for their fat-burning effects in the body.

So, eat your apples, gals! And leave the skin on!
