Lose Weight Without Trying

On the O2 Diet, estimate that you’ll lose about two to three pounds a week. But instead of worrying about the pounds, focus on ORAC points–and the pounds will melt away. These are just three of the O2 Diet’s weight-loss wonders:


Artichokes

At only 60 calories each, they’re a calorie bargain. Artichokes are also super-high on the ORAC scale—7,900 points— and they contain phytochemicals that may lower cholesterol levels.


Lemon Water

Lemon peel contains pectin, a soluble fiber that has been shown to help with weight loss. Add an ounce of lemon juice and some zest to each of your eight daily glasses of water (which will help you feel fuller), and you’ll add 3,200 ORAC points.


Red Grapefruit

One study found that people who ate half a grapefruit with each meal lost 3.6 pounds over 12 weeks, while those who drank grapefruit juice three times a day lost 3.3 pounds. The red variety has more of the cancer-protecting antioxidant lycopene. Half a grape-fruit has 1,900 ORAC points.
