Eating plenty of certain fruits and vegetables could do more than just keep the doctor away. A new Harvard Chan study has shown that increasing one’s intake of foods such as apples, blueberries, and bell peppers can also help with weight control. The research, led by Monica Bertoia, a research associate in the Department of Nutrition, showed that foods rich in a particular class of antioxidant flavonoids may help prevent weight gain.
The research was published in the British Medical Journal on January 28, 2016.
