2. Apples

When it comes to health benefits, apples are royalty.

Rich in abundant nutrients which help with your immune system, apples are a great fruit for having a flatter belly and weight loss because of its high fiber content and phytonutrients.

Studies have shown that fiber and phytonutrients help slow digestion of food thereby making you feel full for longer and they help in balancing the production of blood sugar by not spiking it unnecessarily which can lead to weight gain and other diseases such as diabetes.

3. Tomatoes

Although tomatoes are generally known for cooking, they are packed with a whole lot of vitamin c and phytonutrients that make them effective when it comes to getting rid of belly fat.

Studies have shown that vitamin C is what enables our bodies to burn fat that is already stored with exercise. And the phytonutrient carotenoid serves as an antioxidant for our body that helps with losing weight and cardiovascular health.

4. Watermelon

When you’re trying to lose inches around your waist, low-calorie foods that fill you up, such as watermelon, can aid your weight loss efforts.

The summertime favorite is a refreshing treat that helps satisfy your sweet tooth while providing some key vitamins and antioxidants. Although research on watermelon’s direct effects on losing belly fat is not very popular, it still doesn’t change the fact that the fruit makes a healthy addition to a weight loss plan.

5. Pineapple

Studies have shown that pineapple, which is a nutrient-rich fruit containing vitamin C, manganese, thiamine, copper, fiber and vitamin B-6, can flatten your tummy, prevent stomach distention and help your body burn a few extra calories.

Additionally, the fruit contains one very important enzyme: bromelain, which is found in the stem and within the juice of a pineapple. This enzyme metabolizes protein, contributing to a number of health benefits, including a flatter abdomen.

New Research: Frequent S£x May Help Delay Menopause

Published

on

Scientists have said that frequent s£x can help delay menopause beyond the average age since it keeps the body and the hormones active.

Menopause is usually diagnosed after twelve months without menstruation and usually occurs between the ages of 45 and 47, with the average age being 51.

The study conducted by the University College London and published by Royal Society Open Medicine suggests that if you have a full s£xual life, you will end up keeping your body and hormones active, which as a result will keep you fertile.

They further said that if a woman is not having s£x, the body will therefore ‘choose’ to stop secreting energy into ovulation and invest the resources into existing skin therefore resulting in menopause.

“During ovulation, the woman’s immune function is impaired, making the body more susceptible to disease. Hence, if a pregnancy is unlikely owing to a lack of s£xual activity, then it would not be beneficial to allocate energy to a costly process, especially if there is the option to invest resources into existing kin,” according to the researchers.

Scientists who conducted the study said they recruited 2,936 women aged 42-52, with the researchers tracking their s£xual activities for ten years, as well as their menopause status.

The researchers gathered that women of any age who had s£x each week had 28% less chances of experiencing menopause at the age of 52, while those who had s£x less than once a month have higher chances of experiencing menopause at the average age of 51.

However, when the British National Health Service (NHS) reviewed the research, it said the study does not prove having more s£x directly delay menopause.

“The study only shows a link between how often women had s£x and their age at menopause. It cannot prove that having more s£x directly causes a later menopause.”

Meanwhile, Vicky Rhodes, 59 said she still have periods and has never experienced a hot flush, nor a symptom of hormonal change, as she links it to her frequent s£x with lover jack, 49.

She told Daily Mail that the research has helped her to understand why she still see her menstrual flow despite her age.

According to her: “At last, I think I know what’s been going on, because the years when I might have expected to go through the menopause were taken up with a passionate affair.”

It wasn’t planned… I didn’t really know how it happened… The issue is I bled again… like it’s my first time. It was so so painful yet again. Truth is, I didn’t see myself ever having sex again.
