The Power of Pineapple for Weight Loss

So many pineapples!

When it comes to weight loss, removing unhealthy foods is important. But what is equally important is what foods you decide to replace them with.

There is one food that should be incorporated into every weight loss diet. This superfood aids in digestion, eliminates bloating, and improves your metabolism. 

One of the most prominent weight loss superstars out there is none other than… Drum roll, please—PINEAPPLE.

Pineapple is a nutritional powerhouse when it comes to weight loss and overall health.

Lose Weight With Pineapple

What Are The Benefits of Eating Pineapple?

Pineapple is a tropical fruit with a sweet and tangy flavor. Aside from its delicious taste, eating pineapple has many health benefits. Here are some of the health benefits of pineapple when added to your diet plan daily:

  • Weight Management - Eating pineapple (or drinking it) should be integral to your weight loss journey. A study showed that pineapple has many anti-obesity properties with no side effects (unlike many trending weight loss drugs/supplements on the market) [1].

  • Aids Digestion - Pineapple is a life hack when it comes to digestion and gut health. Pineapple contains Bromelain, a naturally occurring digestive enzyme found in the pineapple stem. As a matter of fact, if you buy a bottle of digestive enzymes at the store, you’ll likely see Bromelain listed as the key ingredient. 

    Bromelain’s digestive properties come from proteolytic enzymes, which help break down proteins to better digest food [2]. This is why I recommend the Skinny Boost Shot™ 10 minutes before your largest meal.

    Not to mention that Bromelain has been known to regulate bowel movements and prevent constipation.

  • Anti-inflammatory Properties - Pineapple is anti-inflammatory and prevents oxidative stress in the body’s vital organs. A study conducted on mice found that antioxidants found in pineapple actually reduced inflammation of the cardiovascular system [3]. These antioxidants protect the body from free radicals, aging, and chronic diseases.

  • Boosts Immunity - You hear a ton about the Vitamin C in oranges but never about pineapples. There are 70 milligrams of vitamin C present in just one cup of pineapple (more than half of your suggested daily intake). Trust me, your immune system will approve.

  • Nutrient Dense - Pineapple is both delicious AND nutritious. It’s full of the essential nutrients our bodies need to thrive. Eating pineapple means you’ll get in a diverse range of vitamins and minerals such as vitamin C, manganese, vitamin B6, thiamine, calcium, potassium, and dietary fiber, maintaining overall health and supporting various bodily functions [4].

  • Hydration - Pineapple has a high water content; when juiced, it becomes a more concentrated form of hydration. This tangy fruit is also electrolyte-rich, making it a great tool to add to your wellness arsenal to replenish fluids in your body post-workout or for some extra hydration. Your body will thank you for the replenishment.

  • Boosts Energy Naturally - Fruit (pineapple included) is a healthy carbohydrate made up of natural sugars, making it a great energy source. Because natural sugars metabolize in your body much differently than table sugar, it means you’ll be less likely to suffer from dips in energy and wonky blood sugar levels. This is why I never suggest cutting healthy carbs as a holistic nutritionist.

The benefits of pineapple are unmatched, and it’s exactly why pineapple is the #1 ingredient in the Skinny Boost™ weight loss enhancer shot.

How Is Pineapple Good For Weight Loss?

As a seasoned nutritionist with over 20 years of experience, I have heard everything from “Isn’t pineapple high in sugar?” to “There are too many calories in pineapple; I can’t eat that for weight loss."

These are common misconceptions you need to unlearn if you really want to lose weight sustainably. Low-calorie diets don’t work. Fixating on calorie intake doesn’t work. Counting the sugar grams in fruit does not work. What DOES work is nourishing your body with foods that are real. Foods that have powerful properties...Foods just like pineapple.

Bromelain in pineapple breaks down proteins, allowing you to better absorb nutrients in your gut. This means you’ll get the full and total benefit of the nutrients minus the bloating and upset stomach. When your body is properly nourished, you will naturally lose weight—no need to limit yourself to foods with fewer calories.

The high fiber content in pineapple keeps you full and satiated. Feeling full means that overeating is highly unlikely. Plus, pineapple has been known to curb cravings, steering you away from those unhealthy choices that often lead to weight gain.

While fresh pineapple is powerful, it’s not end all, be all. It must be consumed with a balanced diet of fruits and veggies, as well as pairing foods properly for optimum digestion.

The Method to My Madness

Eating pineapple is great for weight loss, but pineapple alone won’t work if you’re eating junk food or improperly pairing foods. This concept may be unfamiliar to you, so let me explain...

We know that junk food contributes to excess body fat, but pairing your foods improperly can also lead to weight gain and other digestive issues— a concept that is rarely spoken about in diet culture.

Pairing your foods properly means that you eat light to heavy each day. “Light” refers to uncooked meals, like cold-pressed fruit juices, raw fruit, and vegetables. “Heavy” refers to cooked or fat-based meals, nuts, avocados, and/or animal fats (if that’s something you eat).

Light foods are easy to digest, which is why they are recommended for your earlier meals. In contrast, heavy foods take longer to digest, which is why they are recommended at a later time (with the Skinny Boost shot prior to your heaviest meal for better digestion).

Eating light to heavy means keeping fruits and fats separate. This optimizes the way you digest food and contributes to weight loss. This is a method I’ve been using with clients successfully for many years.

The Stay Skinny Method™ for Weight Loss

The above method is none other than the Stay Skinny Method™. The Stay Skinny Method teaches you how to naturally eat from “light to heavy” each day.  When dinner approaches, and you are about to have your “heaviest” meal, this is the time to enhance your digestion with a little extra boost made from pineapple juice and hibiscus: two weight loss heroes.

Every day, you will have a craving-crushing green juice in the morning, all the fruit you desire, a delicious & filling meal replacement shake at lunchtime, a Skinny Boost™ before dinner, and a full dinner following the provided clean-eating guidelines.  There’s also plenty of room for snacking during the day too. 

The Stay Skinny Method™ is about ABUNDANCE, not restriction. You can burn fat without doing the extremes. There’s no need to consume your body weight in pineapple chunks, as the pineapple diet suggests.

You’ll receive 7 green juices, 7 meal replacement shakes, 7 pineapple-heavy Skinny Boost™ shots, clean-eating guidelines, 38 Stay Skinny recipes, nutritionist advice, and more. 

If you’re ready to maximize your weight loss potential naturally, this is the program for you.
