Low in calories and high in antioxidants. A study published in the British Journal of Nutrition found that adding strawberries to meals slowed the insulin responses by delaying the absorption of sugars in the digestive tract. Insulin is an anabolic hormone that increases storage of fat, protein and glucose. It’s main effect in regard to fat is to block lipolysis (oxidation of fat). Throw frozen or fresh berries into any smoothie.
As little as ¼ – ½ teaspoon of cinnamon added to smoothies can help stabilize blood sugar levels and improve insulin sensitivity.
