It seems everyone nowadays is trying to lose weight and get in shape. People are becoming increasingly aware of what they put into their bodies and are ‘hitting the weight room’, so to speak. So, with all of this hard work and dedication, why not have a few helping hands by your side to aid in your weight loss/fitness endeavors. Here are a few and some of my favorite fat burning foods you can add to your diet to help you reach your weight loss goals.
5 Fat Burning Foods
Packed with fiber & oleic acid (a monounsaturated healthy fat), to suppress your appetite. It also helps to lower bad cholesterol. Flaxseed oil works in a similar way!
2) Fat Busting Spices
This spice helps to regulate your blood sugar levels. This process is what helps stop your body from storing fat, and in turn, aids in weight loss. Cinnamon also helps you feel fuller for longer because it slows the rate at which contents leave the stomach.
- Black Pepper
Black pepper helps to stop the formation of new fat cells.
- Cayanne Pepper
This spice helps to increase your metabolism to burn extra calories.
3) Coconut Oil
This oil contains medium-chain fatty acids which are easily digestible and can actually increase your metabolism. Coconut oil also slows down the rate of digestion which not only helps to regulate your blood sugar but it also helps you to feel fuller for longer, which can help prevent overeating.
4) Apple Cider Vinegar
The pectin present in apple cider vinegar helps you feel full while the high potassium content helps to flush out any boat due to high sodium intake. ACV has also been shown to control spikes in your blood sugar, which in turn helps control the formation of new fat cells. Try to opt for ACV that contains “the mother“.
5) Green Tea
Green tea contains catechins which increases your metabolism leading to fat loss and lower LDL (bad) cholesterol levels. You can either drink green tea the old fashioned way or try green tea supplements!
