All rushed to eat pineapples in their pure form and add it to various dishes: salads, pastries and especially to fatty meat. But further research has slightly corrected the prevailing opinion about tropical fruit. Pineapple really helps to digest food faster and prevents accumulation of excessive weight. That's all due to the fact that bromelain cleaves proteins and only them. But the fruit affects the fat to a very small extent. However, do not be in a hurry to get upset: protein food( meat, fish, beans) is really faster and easier to digest if you finish the meal with pineapple juice or a piece of fresh fruit.

3. Vegetables or fruits.
Meat should be low-fat( rabbit, veal, turkey).Pork is also suitable, but only tenderloin without fat.

You should completely eliminate any fats, and minimize the consumption of carbohydrates. For 2 weeks of such a diet, you will get rid of 3-5 kg of excess weight.
For slimming is useful only fresh pineapple or fresh. Under the influence of high temperatures bromelain collapses and loses its properties. Another important clarification: eating pineapple for weight loss is necessary together with a hard core, in which, in fact, this bromelain is contained. Well, you only need to choose ripe high-quality fruits: with a pleasant and sweetish smell, with a yellowish crust without any dark spots. A store of tropical fruit should be at a temperature of at least 7 C.
Some researchers have made a sensational conclusion: bromelain not only does not help losing weight, but on the contrary, it helps to weight gain! The fact is that less than half of the consumed fats are not broken down, but safely sent to the sewer. If bromelain contributes to their processing, it turns out that fats decompose in the stomach into glycerol and fatty acids, and then are absorbed into the blood. As a result, bromelain adds to our daily diet 140-310 kcal of pure fat. So the choice is yours!
