Grapefruit works as an excellent appetite suppressant as compared to many other foods and substances. It is said that the smell of the grapefruit reduces the feeling of hunger, which is the reason why people often include grapefruit in their weight-loss programs. The high amounts of fiber contained in this fruit can also satisfy hunger and help people avoid the temptation to overeat, since it is a bulky food and stimulates cholecystokinin to be released, a hormone that regulates digestive juices and acts as a hunger suppressant.

Carrots are the number one vegetable recommended for eyesight due to the high content of beta-carotene and vitamin A, which improves eyesight. Carrots are rich in antioxidants which fight cancer causing free radicals, these antioxidants also slow down the ageing process.
