Have you had a pear today? A study, published in the journal ‘Nutrition’, says that women who ate three pears a day consumed fewer total daily calories and lost more weight than those who didn’t. Pears are rich in fibre – just one pear packs 15% of your daily recommended amount – and help you feel full. Try eating a pear a little before a meal to curb hunger. Don’t peel the skin, though. Most of the fibre is in the skin.
