The higher your metabolism is, the more calories and fat youwill burn throughout a 24-hour period and the closer you will be to achieving your weight lossgoals.The great thing about these fat burning foods is that they have a high "thermogenic effect" whichmeans that the body has to use energy to digest the food. Now although every food has somelevel of thermogenic effect, certain foods including the fat burning foods I will give you have agreater effect than others.Fat burning foods are clinically proven to promote weight loss. Now for the list of excellent fatburning foods!Fat Burning Food #1- NutsNuts are full of healthy fats and have protein and magnesium for muscle-building!Nuts are an excellent fat burning food! Many people will advise you to stay away from nutsbecause they are high in fat. That is only a half truth, nuts are high in fat but they are high in goodfat!They are packed with healthy monounsaturated fats and are a great source of protein and fiberthat helps keeping you feel satisfied and can help stop cravings for more food. Monounsaturatedfats even help clear up your arteries for a nice and healthy heart.Almonds are by far the king of all the nuts. A nice handful of almonds provide you with 19 percentof your daily requirement of magnesium which is a key component for building nice strongmuscles.Almonds also provide you with half the daily amount of vitamin E. Nuts also contain no sugar sothere is no insulin response for you to worry about.
Warning: Do not buy salted nuts or mixed nuts you get in a can because these are not good foryou and have a high sodium content. High sodium equals high blood pressure!Two handful of nuts a day (about 24 of them) is a great way to eat to keep you full, a good sourceof Vitamin E, helps keep your heart healthy, and also packed with protein and magnesium to helpbuild muscle!Fat Burning Food #2- EggsNow I know what your thinking... Eggs are high in cholesterol and in fat!Now hang on just a second, eggs have been given a bad reputation over the years for beingfamous in many fast food dishes and cooked in hydrogenated oils which definitely isnt good foryou.Eggs do raise your cholesterol but it raises the levels of HDL cholesterol which is good cholesterol.Eggs dont raise LDL cholesterol which is the bad cholesterol.In addition, it was found that most blood cholesterol is made from the body from dietary fat, notdietary cholesterol.Eggs are not only a great fat burning food but also contain Omega 3 fatty acids which helppromote overall health and reduce the risk of Cardiovascular disease and also reduce the risk ofblood clots!The most important reason why you should eat eggs for the fat burning engine is because it ispacked with protein and it contains vitamin b12, which is essential for fat breakdown!The protein found in eggs has the highest "biological value" of protein. All that means is the proteinin eggs is more effective in building muscle than other sources including lean red meat and milk.Word of advice: eat the yolk sometimes, not just the egg whites. The reason is one mainantioxidant found in the yolk is lutein.It can be found in leafy greens such as spinach and helps slow down the thickening of the arterieswhich can lead to heart disease over time.Fat Burning Food # 3- Green VegetablesMom always used to say "eat your green vegetables" and she was right!Green vegetables are an excellent fat burning food. They produce the negative calorie effectwhich means it takes more calories to digest green vegetables than they contain.Green vegetables also produce the "thermogenic effect" that I spoke of earlier. All it means is itcreates an increase in the metabolic rate based upon the amount of heat generated during theprocess of digestion.
This makes green vegetables one of the top fat burning foods! But this isnt all they have to offer.Spinach is probably the top green vegetable. It contains nearly a full days worth of vitamin A andhalf of your vitamin C. Spinach also has folate and protects against colon cancer, stroke, and heartdisease!Broccoli is perhaps one of my favorite green vegetables. It has plenty of fiber and is highly packedwith minerals, vitamins, and antioxidants.Broccoli increases the enzymes that help detoxify carcinogens which helps fight against cancer.Word of advice: When ordering your green vegetables at a restaurant, be sure to ask the waiternot to have your vegetables bathed in butter. Most restaurants put butter on them and thatprettymuch defeats the purpose of eating healthy and trying to burn fat doesnt it?Fat Burning Food #4- BerriesFinally something sweet for you to eat! You can put berries in your oatmeal during your morningbreakfast or even toss them in some low-fat yogurt.Berries definitely are a great fat burning food and they even help fight against obesity.They have a great amount vitamins, antioxidants and fiber which helps regulate the absorptionand digestion of sugar and carbohydrates. This is excellent news because that doesnt cause ablood sugar spike or an insulin spike which triggers your body to store fat.Dont forget fiber also helps you keep full and a cup of berries packs a whopping 6 grams of fiber!Word of advice: When picking your berries, look at the bottom of the carton..if you see berry juice,stay away because that means the berries will go bad soon! Oh and Captain Crunch berries donot count as healthy berries in case you were wondering:)Fat Burning Food # 5- Lean MeatsFinally all of you meat lovers can rejoice! Lean meats are extremely important in any diet focusedon burning fat. It contains high quality protein which reduces cravings and helps build muscle andrepair cells which is vital in promoting a lean physique.Protein has a high "thermogenic effect" and burns a lot of calories trying to break down protein anduse it for energy. The lean meats you should focus are on chicken, turkey and fish.These are the best of the lean meats. Pick white meat over dark meat when eating poultry and thebest fish to eat is salmon or tuna because they are packed with omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acidswhich decreases the amount of leptin in your body.Leptin affects metabolism by the higher the leptin levels in your body, the more your body storesfat.
Word of advice: I know many of you enjoy red meat and love to eat steak which is fine. But steakhas a lot of saturated fat and there are leaner cuts than others so make sure you pay attention.Always look for loins. New York strips and sirloin are less fatty than T-bones, Rib-eye steak andporterhouse steak. If you are looking for pork, then stick with cured ham, lean pork chops andtenderloin.There are many fat burning foods Â that you can eat.
