The fruit is known to be one of the best fat burning natural sources out there. Kiwis contain more vitamin-C than any other fruit. Vitamin-C is the most potent antioxidant which helps remove fat off your body. The vitamin is required for proper oxidation of fatty acids which makes them far easier to work off. So it’s time to shed that flab and look fab!
Super dense in carbs, bananas help restock muscle glycogen levels and put a halt to muscle breakdown. Not enough? They’re also a fabulous source of potassium, an electrolyte necessary for proper muscular contraction. We suggest starting the day right with a banana milkshake at breakfast or before a workout. Yep, it’s time to go bananas!
This juicy fruit specializes in the production of nitric oxide (NO). Bodybuilders rave about NO since it improves blood flow to muscles, allowing for greater delivery of recovery nutrients and anabolic compounds. Watermelons are also a good hydrating fruit. So what are you waiting for? It’s time feel like melon bucks.
