Some of these foods include oatmeal, grapefruit, apples, pears, green tea, strawberries, ginger and cinnamon.

First off, it will help carry nutrients into the bloodstream and clean your system out. Secondly, it will fill you up making you less apt to snack in between and after meals. Lastly, it will keep you hydrated during the many workouts you will need.
