New Delhi, Feb 11 (ANI): Munching on berries instead of sweets can help you lose weight, says a new research. The study claims that the change could make a person lose a pound a month, even if there was no physical exercise done, an online portal reported. 'Super berries' like acai and goji are already popular for their weight loss qualities, but researchers found a snack of strawberries, raspberries, blackberries and blueberries cuts down calorie intake at the next meal. Researchers estimated that people switching from an afternoon confectionery snack to mixed berries might expect to reduce their energy intake by 938 calories a week on average. According to the study crazy diets for losing weight often demand huge sacrifices, but this study showed that by compromising on one snack and replacing it with delicious berries could help shed up to a stone in a year.
