I was eating some cherries a couple weeks ago and thought, "Hmm, I wonder if there is any research out there on cherries and fat". Up until that point, I thought the fruit was pretty useless other than being a fix for my sweet tooth. Well, guess what? There is research out there, one of which associates a regular intake of cherries with a reduction in abdominal fat weight, percentage fat mass, and more. Check out the abstract: REGULAR TART CHERRY INTAKE ALTERS ABDOMINAL ADIPOSITY, ETC. (2009).
