Looking for a magic bullet? A miracle cure? Something that will add health to your life and help you lose that fat belly? Antioxidant Girl to the rescue.
If you’re looking for the ‘magic bullet,’ then you’ve come to the right place!!! Antioxidant Girl has created a list of foods that are ‘heavy’ in antioxidants, that help to reduce the risk of cancer, heart disease and Alzheimer’s. And maybe even promote weight loss? You betcha!
What is an Antioxidant? An antioxidant is a molecule capable of slowing or preventing the oxidation of other molecules.
An antioxidant is a molecule that slows or prevents the process of oxidation of other molecules. Antioxidants protect the body’s cells from damage caused by free radicals.
What are Free Radicals? Free radicals are unstable molecules that are missing an electron and ‘steal’ electrons from surrounding molecules. We are exposed to free radicals all the time. Sometimes through radiation, smoke ozone and nitrous oxide, x-rays, chemicals, pollutants and saturated fats; sometimes free radicals are produced by our bodies.
Can Antioxidants help us lose weight? For one thing, foods that are ‘heavy’ in antioxidants are some of the lowest-calorie foods that are the best for you! When you feed your body with nutrient dense foods, you are naturally more energetic, strong, focused and more empowered to live a healthy life.
Here follows the USDA’s Antioxidant scorecard! A list of foods that are high in antioxidants, stop free radicals in their tracks and can help you move toward health!

    I agree antioxidants are good for you. I not sure I agree with the “magic bullet” analogy. You failed to mention they are expensive and how much we should eat. I have some different points of view on weight loss….

    I have been buying blueberries and strawberries when they are in season and freezing them. Then I toss some in a cup of Blue Diamond almond milk for a low calorie power packed smoothie for breakfast. Yummy.

    Well written article on antioxidants. In addition to the antioxidants there are some good quality proteins in some of those foods you listed through the nuts and beans. Very healthy food with enough variety to have some form in your every day diet.
    Thanks
