18 FAT BURNING FOODS

1. Lean organic meats

Since protein has a thermogenic effect- meaning it causes your body to burn more calories to simply digest, it is a good calorie to consume.

*Go for chicken or turkey, as d they are typically lower in fat!

2. Coconut

Rich with medium-chain triglycerides, coconut can seriously help you burn fat.

This is because MCFAS (medium-chain triglycerides) can increase the livers metabolism rate by up to 30%.

*In simpler terms, it encourages the body to burn fat.

3. Fish

When you consume fish, it influences Leptin in a positive way.

Leptin is a hormone that regulates fat storage within the body, therefore you can also count it on your list.

4. Green tea

Green tea contains catechins, which is a certain type of phytochemical that has an effect on the metabolism.

This then helps to promote fat oxidation and thermogenesis, as it degrades norepinephrine, the fat burning hormone.

5. Avocado

Avocado boosts the rate of your metabolism and speeds up the conversion of fat into energy.

11-17 grams of fiber

*Therefore eating this little beauty really is a great tool for slimming down, as it will help you stave of those hunger pains and cravings.

6. Green leafy vegetables

Green leafy vegetables are full of vitamins A and C.

These vitamins are a great way of reducing oxidative stress, and cutting out/down the stress hormones of the body, so that the body doesn’t store them as belly fat.

7. Cinnamon

Most of you are probably aware by now that excess sugar in the blood can lead to excess fat storage.

*The beauty of cinnamon is that it can regulate blood glucose levels.

This will in return reduce your food cravings, stop you from feeling sluggish and make you overall feel better throughout the day.

8. Grapefruit

Since grapefruits have been found to lower levels of insulin in the body, this in return prevents the body from storing more fat.

9. Eggs

egg diet

Eggs have been known to contain a lot of cholesterol.

However in recent studies, it has been proven that cholesterol in food does not raise cholesterol in the blood.

In fact eggs reduce cholesterol.

*They also have quite a bit of protein, which leads to the person whom is consuming them feeling fuller longer.

10. Chillies and hot peppers

Capsaicin is a compound that helps protein structures in the body break down fat.

This gives a fat burning effect.

The good news is that capsaicin is found in chillis and hot peppers such as habaneros, and as a result of this affect, they are known to reduce belly fat.

11. Flaxseeds

Packed with finer and omega-3s, flaxseeds and flaxseed oil are very common health foods these days, and for good reason.

Once consumed they attract oil double toxins that are in the fat tissues of the body, and then they can get those toxins out of the body.

*This means at the end of this process there will be fewer fat stores.

12. Tomatoes

Not only are tomatoes delicious, but also have a substantial amount of fiber.

They contain lycopene, which provides antioxidants, which in return helps the oxidation process.

*This will obviously prevent certain diseases from occurring.

13. Nuts

nuts

Nuts are very nutritious. Well, that is if you eat the right kind, and they’re indeed many to choose from.

They are a great source of magnesium, which in itself is mood boosting.

*Studies have shown that nuts in the diet help control weight, reduce heart disease and also diabetes.

14. Spices

Cayenne is an extremely hot spice. It lowers blood glucose levels within the body and reduces the risk of excess insulin lurking around and storing fat.

Turmeric is another great spice. Usually found in Indian dishes, it is one of the highest known sources of the antioxidant beta-carotene, which helps protect the liver from free radical damage.

15. Quinoa

Have you been searching for a substitute for rice or potatoes?

Then quinoa is your perfect match.

*It is both packed with lots of vitamins and also low on the GI score. It also promotes satiety.

16. Bananas

Bananas do indeed have some fructose, but they also contain fiber, so they are fine to eat.

The starch that is found in bananas turns into a fatty acid in the gut by the good bacteria.

*This metabolizes fats, which is known to decrease obesity.

17. Lentils

Lentils contain fiber, which not only helps you feel full in-between meals, but will also keep your blood sugar levels from spiking.

*Lentils also contain iron, and if you are deficient in this then it will slow your metabolism down.

EAT THESE FAT BURNING FOODS TO HELP BURN AWAY POUNDS!

Eto ang ilan sa mga pagkain na makakatulong pa mag burn ng fats or pounds. Accessible at madaling mabili!

1. Apples

apples for fat burning

Apples don’t just keep the doctor away, it seem; apparently, they also help to keep the fat away!

Apples raise the blood glucose level (blood sugar) in a slow and safe way that helps it stay elevated longer – that means it takes longer until you feel hungry again.

Apples are also an excellent source of soluble fiber, making you feel fuller and preventing hunger pangs.

2. Spinach

spinach for burn fat

Spinach is one of the best green leafy vegetables you can eat; it lowers the cholesterol, boosts metabolism and helps burn fat.

What’s more, it’s an excellent source of iron, beta carotene and vitamins C and E.

3. Coffee

coffee for weight loss

While coffee has its place on this list, we do want to urge moderation; caffeine does have its risk factors, including insomnia and nervousness.

However, that same caffeine will also boost your metabolism.

It indirectly helps with weight loss, as this stimulant effect will help you to burn calories at a quicker rate.

For health reasons though, it’s a good idea to drink only one cup in the morning and one in the afternoon.

For best results, drink it black or only with a bit of skim milk – no sugar!

4. Grapefruit

grapefruit for weight loss

Grapefruit is amazing.

The average sized fruit has a mere 74 calories, contains an astonishing 15 grams of the fiber, pectin (known to help lower cholesterol), is loaded with Vitamin C and potassium and contains no fat or sodium.

What’s more, it’s got a high level of galacturonic acid (pectin) that helps keep cholesterol down.

5. Potatoes

potatoes for weight loss

Potatoes are actually a great food to eat when you’re trying to lose weight, despite what most are taught to think.

This root vegetable is also helpful in keeping cholesterol down, and helps reduce the risk of stroke and heart disease.

6. Homemade Soup

soup for weight loss

In general, you should avoid the high sodium varieties of soup you get from the grocery store, but homemade soup is very good for you and helps you lose weight!

Studies have shown that people who make a habit of eating a bowl of soup before each meal will lose more weight than people who don’t.

It makes sense; soup is mostly water and fills you up so you eat less – yet you tend to feel full and satisfied.

7. Berries

If you have a sweet tooth, berries are the perfect food for you.

Their natural sweetness comes from fructose, and satisfies that need for sweets while giving you fiber to make you feel full and eat less.

Besides that, berries are super healthy with potassium to help with your blood pressure and and antioxidants to fight cancer.

8. Tofu

This Asian food is one of the healthiest protein sources around.

It’s high in calcium and iron, very low in sodium and has zero saturated fats.

On top of that, it helps get your metabolism going, which indirectly leads to weight loss. Oh, and it’s good for lowering cholesterol, too!

A Tale of Two Meals

Ano nga ba ang tunay na nakakapagpataba sa atin, ang fats o ang carbs? Curious ka rin ba, momsh? Naku, kami rin! Kaya alamin natin yan dito! 馃憞 #ataleoftwomeals #fatsvscarbs #baconorbagel

What’s Really Making You Fat? Fats or Carbs?

Imagine that it’s time for breakfast. You have 2 choices: a plate of Bacon & Eggs or a Bagel with Low-Fat Cream Cheese.

Which one will make you fatter? Think it’s the Bacon & Eggs? Wrong!

Bacon & Eggs 鉃★笍 Fat

Fat doesn’t start breaking down as quickly as other foods. It takes a long time to digest. Your body dissolves the fat into droplets, then into fatty acids and glycerol. There’s no dramatic blood-glucose spike, and no insulin spike. Without an insulin spike, fatty acids aren’t trapped in your fat cells. What happens to the fatty acids? Some are used for energy and some are distributed and stored.

Bagel with Low-Fat Cream Cheese 鉃★笍 Carbs

Carbs in your stomach digest faster than most other nutrients. It is used for energy are digested, flooding your bloodstream with glucose. Your body rapidly secretes insulin, which signals your body to store fat in 2 ways: Insulin tells your fat cells to pull in fat from the bloodstream, making you fatter. Second, insulin tells your fat cells to prevent fatty acids from leaving, preventing you from becoming leaner. Your body hangs on to all the fat it can find.

So you see, eating that bacon doesn’t make you fat. But eating a bagel full of carbs tells your body to keep storing more fat, making you fatter. Now, which would you choose?

***

Ayan bes, hindi naman pala nakakataba ang pagkain ng bacon kundi ang bagel. Carbs naman pala ang tunay na salarin sa ating pagtaba! Ngayon alam na natin. Kaya minimize na natin ang pagkain ng carbs. Go for the #fitnessgoals! Push natin ‘yan! 馃檶
