Strawberry Fields - The Beatles and it was a Children's home.

Neil any type of fruit is fat-free so don't worry about eating them. Do so!!!!!!!!

Thank ewe for the lyrics Karen.


I am still asking my original question though and that is there a substance that is particularly prevalent in strawberries that aids in the burning of fat ?

Strawberrys are known to contain one of the few truly effective "diet foods" the magical stuff is called



Water!
Because they are full of water (like most fruit + veg) they don't have a lot of calories in them.
On the other hand, they do tend to get used as an excuse to eat lots of cream and sugar which are absolutely loaded with calories.

In addition to having lots of water, they’re lower in sugar than lots of other fruits and they’re also high in fiber, which helps you fill up quicker.  They are also a good source of vitamin C, which if I’m not mistaken, helps to increase your metabolism

Thank ewe Bored Chemist .

So, there's no magical ingredient....just an abundance of H20 !...excellent....no ones goes thirsty in Strawberry Fields...

Thank you very much.
