Onion is rich in fiber, nutrients and an antioxidants called quercetin, which are used in weight reduction. Onions are regularly used in Indian cuisines. They give a good flavor to the dishes. They are named for their low calorie weight they have.
Quercetin, which is an antioxidant is used to increase the energy expenditure in our body. As we know that weight loss is nothing but burning the extra stored calories, quercetin is used to burn the calories thereby promote weight loss. It is also recommended not to take more amounts of quercetin, as overdose of it will sidetrack the original results. There is also a point to be noted here, as I already mentioned afore that quercetin will increase the body expenditure, it decreases the benefit of it over time if it is used continuously.
