Cellulite Fighting Foods #19: Pears

August 20, 2014 1 min read

You might find it odd that pears are on this list, but the truth is that these delicious, watery fruits are excellent at fighting cellulite. Pears are rich in iodine, a mineral that plays a role in health thyroid function. If your thyroid gland doesn't receive the proper amount of iodine, it begins to function sluggishly. This leads to a low basal metabolic rate, which in turn leads to increase weight gain. An iodine deficiency can not only cause you to gain weight, but it can actually stop you from losing weight despite your diet and exercise.   [caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="700"] Source: healthyfoodhouse.com[/caption] Iodine is also effective at detoxifying your body, preventing toxins from contributing to the formation of cellulite. Pears are rich in pectin, a form of soluble fiber that helps to flush toxins and free radicals. Bonus benefits:Pears can help to regulate your blood sugar, fight diabetes, provide your body with lots of antioxidants and phytochemicals, fight inflammation, prevent heart disease, and even reduce your risk of cancer forming in your esophagus, intestines, and stomach.
