Losing Weight With Celery
You've probably heard that celery has weight loss superpowers. People say that it makes losing weight easy by using up more calories to digest than the number of calories it adds to your diet (roughly 6 calories per stick of celery, fact fans).
This may or may not be the case but either way, don't be disheartened -- celery is a great food to add to your diet!
A diet rich in the plant compound luteolin... found in many plants, including carrots, peppers, celery... reduces age-related inflammation in the brain.

Celery may not magically suck calories out of your diet, but it's still a very low-calorie food that fills you up and does your body good. It's high in dietary fibre, full of antioxidants, and may help to reduce blood pressure, too. So grab a celery stick and get snacking!
