The 5 Fat Burning Foods

In my previous e-mail to you, I shared the most effective post workout meal!

Today, I am going to share with you some of the other high quality foods I used during my journey to losing 52 pounds of fat.

The best part about these foods is that not only are they good for you, but they have been actually shown to help your body burn fat faster!

Can I get a HELL YEAH!

(Sorry I couldn’t resist)

So you are probably wondering what these 5 fat burning foods are so without making you wait any longer here they are.

Green Tea
Almonds
Dark Chocolate
Ceylon Cinnamon
Grapefruit

The best part about all of these foods is that you can integrate them into all of your meals in some way no matter what throughout the day!

If you are a health geek like me, and want to learn more about why these types of foods help you burn more fat, keep reading!

Green Tea

Why it works: The thermogenesis effect in the body is caused mostly by the naturally occurring caffeine in the green tea leaves. Studies also suggest that the thermogenesis in green tea is also caused by the epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG).

Almonds

Why they work: The reason these type of nuts aid in fat loss is because of their nutrient density and healthy fat content in them. The monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats have been proven time and time again to help the body easily release fat.

Dark Chocolate (70% or more)

Why it works: There is one key ingredient in dark chocolate that makes it a fat burning food. Foods with high cocoa content (which dark chocolate fills that bill), are loaded with something called epicatechin. This ingredient is part of a specific plant flavoniod family that aids in burning fat from the body. Feel free to research more about this by doing a search in Google.

Ceylon Cinnamon

Why it works: Based on past studies, cinnamon has been shown to help regulate blood glucose levels, making the body more efficient in turning glucose into energy. By regulating your blood sugar more effectively with cinnamon, it will help your body reach a homeostasis and always be in a fat-burning mode, as opposed to a fat-storing mode.

As stated in previous e-mails, your body turns into a fat-storing mode when insulin spikes uncontrollably. Insulin spikes are caused by eating 100% white (non-whole grain) carbohydrates without any proteins. If you have the choice, always go for whole grain based carbohydrates because they are healthier for the body and are slowly released into the blood stream.

Grapefruit

Why it works: The reason why grapefruit is so effective in helping people burn fat from their body is because of the ingredient “narringin,” which gives grapefruit its bitter taste. This naturally occurring ingredient in the fruit helps block the uptake of fatty acids into cells, which helps to prevent our bodies from converting carbohydrates into energy. Instead of burning carbohydrates for energy, your body will use fat instead.

Pretty cool, huh?

I thought the same thing when I discovered how effective these foods are to integrate in a fat loss diet!
