A Few of the Top Fat Burning Foods

  1. 1. ==== ====Read more or more information here:http://healthandfoods.net/ebook==== ====Everyone has their list of top fat burning foods as part of a weight loss program, so we thought wewould chip in with ours. All of these are common foods that we now perhaps eat on a regularbasis, but obviously the way they are prepared and in what portions they are consumed will go farin determining how effective they will be. So here is a list of our 5 top fat burning foods:1. Salmon. The overall health benefits of salmon are enormous, but it is very influential in helpingreduce fat. The Omega3 fatty acids, vitamin D and selenium help to increase the influence ofinsulin by lowering blood sugar levels. Dense in nutrition and low in calories, it is high in the goodkind of fat but low in saturated fats, so it makes a satisfying meal that can be prepared in a varietyof ways. Fish should be at the top of everyones diet (at least twice per week), and with the manybenefits salmon has to offer it should be at the top of everyones list when dining on fish.2. Turkey, Chicken, and Pork. Of the three, turkey is probably the healthiest, as it is the leanest,but they all contain significant levels of Leucine, the amino acid found in the protein of lean meats.This stimulates your blood sugar and insulin levels, making you feel fuller and suppressing yourappetite. Additionally, Leucine also increases the amount of glucose used by your muscles, whichwould otherwise be stored as fat. The only way to eat turkey and chicken for maximum healthbenefit is by cooking it from a raw state. Processed from packets will not produce nearly the samebenefits, and with the additives may do more harm than good. Only seven ounces of turkey meatare enough to provide your body with its daily protein requirement. Pork is more controversial. Ithas been touted as the "other white meat", but that depends on where the pork is from on theanimal, the leanest being the pork loin, and how it is prepared. From a health standpoint, thegreasier it is, the less nutritious it is. Perhaps the best advice is to limit the amount you eat, but if itis prepared healthy it will provide some variety to your menu.3. Negative Calorie Fruits and Vegetables. Negative calorie foods burn more calories duringabsorption into the system than what the food actually contains. Being rich in fiber and nutrientswill fill you up and give a great energy boost. Eating them raw will give you more nutrients andenzymes than if they are cooked. Some of the top fruits are apples, bananas, blueberries,cherries, cranberries, grapefruit, grapes, oranges, peaches, pears, raspberries, strawberries, andpomegranate. Top vegetables on the list are asparagus, beetroot, broccoli, carrots, lemons,onions, green beans, squash, and turnips, to name just a few.4. Negative Calorie Nuts. Nuts are filling and rich in protein, and are high in fat, but theunsaturated variety, which if eaten in portion-controlled amounts may aid in weight loss. By takingthe place of more traditional protein sources, nuts can reduce the saturated fat and calories in youroverall diet. Almonds have been touted as one of the best, as they have essential fatty acids thatboost metabolism. But peanuts (really legumes) provide the most complete protein, Brazil nutsand cashews (technically seeds), as well as chestnuts, coconuts, hazelnuts, and walnuts are great

It causes carbohydrates to be released slowly, thus preventing sharp increases in blood-insulin levels, promoting fat burning. It has caffeine content, which has a thermogenic effect, but ingreen tea it is found to be far greater than in a comparable amount of pure caffeine.Additionally to the 5 top fat-burning foods, and certainly underrated as a fat burner, is water. Waterhelps remove the workload from the liver, and if the liver spends less time breaking downchemicals and other waste, the more it can devote to burning fat. We hope that you will seriouslyconsider all these fat-fighting foods, and by building them as the foundation to your diet you willsoon see the pounds drop.At Losethatbellyfat, our goal is to inform those people who are trying to lose weight oncomprehensive, realistic programs for weight loss. We are definitely not into quick-fixes, butprograms that involve proper diet, cardio work, and muscle tone.
