Does an apple a day really keep the doctor away?

Perhaps! Apples are filled with disease-fighting properties. They can help lower blood cholesterol, improve bowel functioning, and reduce your risk of stroke, prostate cancer and diabetes.

Eat Right and Feel Gorgeous

I'm sure you've heard the saying, "You are what you eat." Well, forget about weight for a minute — this saying is true when it comes to your looks too! Certain foods help your body feel great — and luckily, the same foods that keep you healthy and fit also help keep you looking your best. We can thank Mother Nature for that!

Incorporate these miracle foods into your diet, and you'll notice the difference in your appearance right away! All of these foods are also perfect for a healthy, low-fat diet:

emoticon Citrus fruits help your body form collagen, which is essential to keep skin looking young and smooth!
emoticon Tomatoes are rich in vitamins A and C and potassium — all of which help give skin a radiant glow!
emoticon Garlic is said to combat wrinkles and help restore tissue. It's like a natural antiwrinkle cream!
emoticon Dairy foods — like skim milk, low-fat yogurt, and low-fat cheese — help keep your bones and teeth strong, and your smile bright!
emoticon Sweet potatoes are packed with vitamin A, which promotes clear, smooth skin!

emoticon emoticon Remember: Good looks are about much more than being thin or having expensive makeup, hair, and clothes. Enrich your looks by being smart about food, and get that beautiful glow naturally!
