Arm yourself against extra pounds when you travel by munching on pears. Yep, these fresh and juicy treats contain two important types of antioxidants that are associated with less weight gain over time.

Perfectly Paired Antioxidants

In a study, middle-aged women who consumed the highest amounts of three different types of flavonoid antioxidants — flavones, flavonols, and catechins — saw the smallest increase in body mass index (BMI) over a period of 14 years. Pears just happen to be a major source of these phytonutrients. They’re also high in filling fiber and low in calories, making them a win-win sweet solution for your waistline and appetite.
