7. Green Apples

Green apples also have a higher content of polyphenol compounds that help manage fat cells in the body.
Plus, apples are great for boosting your metabolism which in turn helps burn fat.
Enjoy 1 green apple daily. Make sure to thoroughly rinse the skin of apples before eating them. If you don’t have green apples, you can still enjoy red apples. They also improve your metabolism and help keep you feeling full for longer.
