4. Longans

These translucent fruits that resemble lychees taste like grapes and pears, and their nutritional profile is equally refreshing.


A 100-gram serving contains 140 percent of the daily value for vitamin C, 60 calories, and no fat.

5. puerh tea

This Chinese fermented tea can literally reduce the size of adipose cells.
