"One medium pear can help you feel satisfied longer between meals and snacks, thus aiding in weight loss," says Makhija.

"Much of the fibre in fresh pears is in the form of pectin which has been shown to reduce cholestrol and decrease the risk of heart disease. Pears also have vitamin C, an important antioxidant necessary for bone and tissue health, and prevention of cardiovascular disease and various cancers," adds the nutritionist.
