Health Secrets From Thailand- Dragon Fruit For Weight Loss
Traveling always has its way of keeping you off of your normal routine. I still can’t seem to keep my diet and exercise routine intact, so it is inevitable that a few extra pounds have found their way into strategic places. I welcomed this little tidbit of information I gathered from the hotel cleaning lady while in Phuket, Thailand. She clued me in a secret that the Thai believe to be true about a piece of fruit found in abundance in the region. It is called dragon fruit and is a sweetened diet secret women in Thailand live by.
It grows on a vine and is primarily found in South East Asia and Central and South America. It has a variety of beneficial attributes including boosting the immune system, aiding in digestion, fighting free radicals and promoting the growth of probiotics. It also has an effect on controlling cholesterol levels and lowering blood glucose levels which would explain the support in weight loss.
I stocked up and ate as much as I could before leaving the country. Unfortunately, the extra pounds are still hanging around.
