Fat Burning Foods -- take your pick


There are a lot of fat burning foods out there, but one thing you can do is to at least choose those that are available in your area. Here are some of the fat burning foods you can have for your diet. 

Fruits rich in Vit C

fruits rich in vitamin C (ascorbic acid) like lime, tomatoes, lemons, oranges, guava, grapefruit, papaya, sweet lime, and tangerines. Vitamin C is said to help the body to process fat faster and also stimulate the carnatine amino acids which speeds up the fat burning process. It also dilutes the fat and it makes it less effective and also helps it in releasing the fat from our body. 

Apples have Pectin that restricts cells to absorc the fat in our body. Apples also encourages absorption of water in order to release the fat deposits in our body. Apples also have tons of antioxidants. 

Dairy products rich in calcium. 
Milk, cheese and yogurt can actually help you in burningfat since it increases fat breakdown. 

We've all seen tips that say that nuts like almond and cashews can help us slim down but they don't really explain why. Nuts will actually help up keep full while also increasing our body's ability to burn fat. 

Green Tea. 
Green tea not only soothes us but also revs up our metabolism so don't deprive yourself from a cup or two a day. 

Whole Grain Cereals. 
This one is a no-brainer since Whole Grain is a staple for everyone who is on a diet. Whole grain cereals are packed with complex carbs and fiber that is good for our digestion and also to keep up with our metabolism. 

Chicken is actually good for boosting our metabolism. Try this for a change- substitute protein for one fifth of the carbs you eat and you'll notice that more calories were burned. 

Those are the food you can try to lessen those fat in our bodies. 

Much Love!
