Tip 44 is,

Eat More Brussels Sprouts

Not only are these low-calorie, fat-free, nutrient-packed veggies good for you, but new research shows that they may help boost your body’s production of adiponectin, the hormone that plays a role in burning stored fat for fuel. Brussels sprouts are also full of fiber, which fills you up and prevents you from overeating, says Batayneh.

    I love them, but only the fresh ones not the frozen ones. They're like little cabbages, very good roasted.
