Raspberries and weight loss

Because of their sugar content, raspberries, like any other fruit have a bad reputation when it comes to weight loss. But what makes the raspberries an excellent choice, if you are trying to lose weight, is the fact that they are high in dietary fiber and can help you feel fuller on fewer calories. Because the raspberries have the trace mineral manganese, they can also speed up your metabolism which in turn helps burn body fat.

Raspberry ketone is a fruit extract and a natural substance that can burn fat more effectively, helping the body to lose weight. But the raspberry ketone supplement is actually NOT derived from raspberries because that would be insanely expensive. Raspberries also have a very low glycemic index and low impact on blood sugar.
