Power Foods Spur Weight Loss, Improve Energy & Fight Disease
Superfoods, which are nutrient-rich foods optimal for good health, come in all shapes and sizes... but they do require a bit of a hunt in your grocery store.

Superfoods have become very trendy over the past few years, and many dietitians swear by them.

Another health trend that has gained a massive following is detoxing.

However, many argue that detoxing only gives short-term results.

The key to healthy nutrition is variety. Far from drinking just juice for days on end, the way to help your body repair and restore itself is through a full range of healthy foods.

The simplest way to think about this concept is color. The colors in fruits and vegetables are determined by phytochemicals, which have been shown to have a range of healthy properties.

Manuel Villacorta, MS, RD, shares his top superfood picks and why they help with weight loss, fight off disease, and boost your energy levels.
