Go To It! Bob Harper’s Skinny Rule #6: Eat Berries and Apples

Bob Harper is the trainer and fitness expert best known for his butt-kicking, fat-burning workouts on The Biggest Loser. Tomorrow he’s launching his new book, The Skinny Rules, which distills his healthy eating knowledge into 20 straightforward principles. Make them into habits, and Harper guarantees you’ll never need another diet book again. Always up for a healthy challenge, BBL staffers will be test-driving Harper’s rules all month long. Here’s Ashley’s take on Skinny Rule #6. —BBL Editor

The first rule I’m working to make a part of my daily life is #6: Eat apples and berries every single day. Full of vitamins and micronutrients, Harper recommends eating these fruits daily to help speed and maintain metabolism and keep bad cholesterol under control.

I started out eating apples and berries raw and all by themselves as snacks, but that got old pretty quickly. I had to get creative to keep up the habit. I added strawberries to a kale salad with grape tomatoes and goat cheese. I mixed blueberries into my morning yogurt with a bit of granola. I snacked on apples and peanut butter. I put dried cranberries into oatmeal or mixed them with almonds and sunflower seeds. I also made a really delicious sweet potato, carrot, red lentil, and apple soup. I’m now into my second berry-eating week, and it’s already starting to feel like a habit that I’m going to keep up.

So go to it! Try to find creative ways of including apples and berries in your diet this week. If you need a jumping off point, check out Bob’s video below where he shows how to make a quick berry smoothie that will help you take the first step toward following Skinny Rule #6.

The Skinny Rules is on sale tomorrow, wherever books are sold. Follow Bob Harper on Twitter at @MyTrainerBob and use the hashtag #skinnyrules to talk about the book.
