Would you believe me if I said that eating food can lead to fat loss? Probably not. Here’s the deal though, if you commit to eating the right foods you will soon be pleased to know that the right foods will not only burn your fats away but will also leave a great taste in your mouth.
The following list of foods have certain properties that will make sure that your metabolism goes into over drive or your antioxidants spike or something or the other that will lead to your body burning up the fats. Here we go:
1. Broccoli & Feta Omelet with Toast
This is a simple dish to make and the fiber that you consume in the form of the broccoli and the protein that you consume in the form of the feta cheese and the eggs will benefit you in two ways. Firstly your appetite will be satisfied for a few hours as a result of which you will not want to snack on anything unhealthy. Secondly, protein is a dense macronutrient, one that requires more energy to break down. This energy is supplied by burning fats stored in the body.
2. Spiced Green Tea Smoothie
Green tea is one of the best fat busters that naturally increase the metabolism rate because of the antioxidants that are present. A compound named EGCG is the chief beneficial element in this brew. The increased metabolism burns more calories to provide energy for the bodily functions. Add ginger, spices, limes etc to your own taste and make this a refreshing drink.
3. Curried Egg Salad Sandwich
This is similar to a regular egg salad sandwich except for the presence of curry powder which is loaded with antioxidants. This increases the metabolism and coupled with the dense protein in the eggs leads to the combustion of a lot of fats. Replace the mayonnaise with Greek yoghurt and you will have one of the healthiest meals imaginable.
4. Dark Chocolate & Oat Clusters
Desserts that burn fat? Yup. You heard it right. Dark chocolate boosts your hormones and increases your metabolism and is therefore one of the best ways to burn fats as well. The oats present will fill you up with fiber which will curb your appetite and make sure you don’t feel hungry any time soon. Just make sure that you do not eat too much. Some treats can be guilt free too!
5. Pan-Grilled Salmon with Pineapple Salsa
Lean protein is one of the best ways to send the body into a fat burning state as it provides enough energy to break down this macronutrient. Salmon is a great source and as if this wasn’t enough it has monounsaturated fats that are healthy and a study held in 2001 showed that consuming these specific types of fats help boost the metabolism as well.
Dieting is a change in your lifestyle and luckily nature is on our side. Eat healthy and forget about counting calories ever again.
