It might sound too good to be true, but there are fat burning foods that will help you shed those extra pounds from your waist.
Now, one thing to bear in mind is that these “superfoods” only work their magic when paired with a clean diet.
Do not expect results if you combine these fat burning foods with a junk-food diet.
It just doesn’t work that way.
Now, if you want to shed some pounds, and add an extra kick and speed to your fat burning process, here is what you should eat.
Kale is one of the healthiest veggies you can find on the market, and its health benefits go far beyond the “fat loss”.
Just four cups of kale, which is one salad, is enough to detoxify your liver for 48 hours.
The end result of your clean body means fewer cravings for sugary food.
So in a way, kale helps you burn calories, but also keeps you from craving for unhealthy food.
Some people avoid avocado since the fruit contains some fat.
However, what most people do not understand is that avocado actually has “good fat”, same as with almonds and other nuts.
Avocado is a triple fat burner food, as it boosts the metabolism, it switches the fat storage hormones of the body off, and improves the communication between cells and fat burning hormones.
And if you are looking for a quick way to include some avocado in your daily routine, I have a special quick breakfast for you.
All you need is a half an avocado, some sea salt, and a tomato.
And there you go, a healthy breakfast on the go.
Or you can always add avocado in your green salad.
I mentioned previously that nuts are great fat burning foods.
But every category has its king, and in the nuts category, that king is Brazil nuts.
What they do best is convert your thyroid to active form and bind up toxins that can later be flushed out of your body instead storing to your fat cells.
As for a quick snack, you can sprinkle them on any fruit salad, or eat only Brazil nuts as a snack.
Any diet needs some fish in it, and luckily for you, our fat burning foods have fish in it as well.
We are talking about salmon here, a fish that is extremely rich in omega-3 fatty acids.
Consuming salmon on a regular basis improves your insulin sensitivity, and the result is you shrink fat from your waistline.
Many diets and nutritionists recommend using olive oil when you want to burn fat and shed pounds from your waistline.
However, there is something better than olive oil, and that is coconut oil.
A study that was published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition showed that coconut oil is much better option than olive oil, thanks to its richness with medium-chained-triglycerides or MCTs.
Our body needs MCTs for energy, and the more you supply, the more fat it burns.
Sadly, coconut oil is not a good option for salad dressing, but for cooking, there is no better option.
One thing to watch out when you consume eggs is your cholesterol level.
While eggs help your body metabolize fat and burn it, they also boost your cholesterol level.
Therefore, if you have high cholesterol, stay away from eggs on a daily basis.
Talk to your doctor, but eating eggs two to three times per week is something that even your high cholesterol can handle.
We are getting into spice category here.
Cinnamon is more aromatic spice than cooking spice, but just a sprinkle from it can help you burn more fat.
The spice helps your body move glucose to the cells faster, which results in less glucose for fat storage.
You can always add some cinnamon in a vanilla smoothie, or make an apple spiced pudding with cinnamon.
It is fitting that I end this list with another spice.
Cayenne Pepper has been marketed by Beyonce, Giselle Bundchen and many other Hollywood A-listers as the magic spice for their weight loss.
The main ingredient in cayenne pepper is capsicum, a compound that has been used for centuries in alternative medicine.
In addition to burning fat, cayenne pepper also decreases your appetite as it makes you feel full.
