Boost Your Matabolism with...

WATERMELON...

A new study in the Journal of Nutrition finds that the amino acid arginine, abundant in watermelon, might promote weight loss. Researchers supplemented the diets of overweight mice with arginine for 3-monthss and found that doing so decreased the body fat the mice gained by 64%. Adding this amino acid to the diet enhanced the oxidation of fat and glucose and increased the lean muscle which helps burn more calories than what fat does. Make watermelon your snack of choice during the summer months! Year round, eat seafood, nuts and seeds to obtain arginine.
