Researchers Say Eating Vegetables Can Make You More Attractive
Want to look better? According to a new study released in the UK, try eating more fruits and veggies!
Of course, vegans and vegetarians have known for a long time about the health benefits of eating more greens — but can it really make you more attractive too?
Researchers at the University of Nottingham had students eat five extra portions of fruit and vegetables a day for two months. Afterward, they examined photos of themselves with different skin pigmentations and deemed the “fruits and veggies” one the most attractive. From the article:
Dr Stephen explained: “Eating five more portions [of fruit and veg] ups your carotenoid levels giving your skin golden tones.” Carotenoids are antioxidants which soak up damaging compounds that the skin encounters in daily life. “In humans, the more red and yellow tones found in the skin, the more attractive the people were found to be,” he added.
So forget tanning or spray tans — just up your intake of veggies and you’ll be “glowing” in no time. For those of us in the Northeast this time of year, it sure beats looking like mole people.
