The Benefits

Discounted Christmas cranberries won’t just save you a few pennies – they may also help you lose a few pounds. In research published in the Journal of Metabolism, a daily dose of the tart red fruit cuts LDL cholesterol in just two weeks.

In a study in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, meanwhile, swapping breakfast cereal for oats for two weeks led to a 47 per cent dip in study subjects’ fat absorption.

Flaxseed is one of the few natural sources of leucine, an amino acid that Louisiana State University researchers found helped athletes metabolise fat more efficiently, while leaving lean muscle mass intact.
