7 Foods that Fire Up Your Body for Fat Burn!
1. Apples or Pears
Apples and pears have been proven to be effective in raising your metabolism and fat burn in your body by raising the fiber in your stomach and intestines and keeping your body feeling full for a longer time. They are semi high in sugar though, so overeating them could have reverse effects.
2. Whole Eggs
Eating whole eggs is often thought to be a great increase in cholesterol due to the fat that is found in the egg yolk. Recent studies have shown this to be untrue and a false assumption. They are high in protein and high in vitamins. Eat a couple with breakfast to give your fat burn a boost.
3. Leafy Greens
Leafy greens such as kale, lettuce, Swiss chard, and collard greens have many important factors in raising that fat burn level in your body. They have fiber that keeps your body feeling full, as well as being low in calories and carbohydrates. Grab a salad for lunch and fire up that fat burning machine!
4. Dark Chocolate
I have a feeling that you guys and girls will like this one! I'm telling you that the antioxidant rich, low sugar, low processed, fiber filled, crunchy chocolate made by cocoa beans will be a great food that will fire up that body for burning fat for several hours. All you have to do is eat a few pieces and then watch the fat burn away!
Beans are an excellent source of protein, they are inexpensive, and they take a long time to digest. The fiber richness of the food allows for longer digesting time, which means it will take more calories to burn the beans off. I eat my beans with ham hocks or by themselves with hot dogs. Burn some fat by firing up your body with beans.
Soup can be a really good food to fire up your body and help it burn that fat for a long time. Most of the time soups are a weighty and heavy food that utilizes fiber, vitamins and minerals, and protein. They can be heavy on the sodium which isn't the best thing, but there are soups like Progresso that are good in sodium and fat.
7. Olive Oil
If you're someone that has been on the Mediterranean diet, you are all too familiar with olive oil. A fact about olive oil is that the Greeks used to drink a cup of it in the morning for breakfast to jump-start their body's digestive system and keep things regular. You don't have to drink it straight, but sprinkle it over a salad, in some whole grain pasta, or have it on some break with a vinaigrette. Olive oil has properties of good fats and minerals that will give you a fat burn.
I hope that your weight loss programs are going well, that you are healthy and on your way to your weight loss goals, and that you can use these foods to boost that fat burn as you fire up your body for the long run. These are great choices that you can use in your own lives. I have used them for quite a long time and they have worked for be. They have good vitamins, minerals, fats, protein, and lots of other good qualities to push you along in your fat burn and weight loss!
