Burn All That Fat with These 9 Awesome Foods

Taste them and burn, burn all the fat away.

My god! All of this time at the gym and running 5 miles every weekend and you still have those love handles. Are you sure you’ve been following through? Fear not. More often than not the reason you don’t have as yet burned that fat is because the answer lies in the kitchen, not at the treadmill.

What we eat is, obviously, intrinsically related to the stubborn fat our bodies store. But you can also flip the script and start consuming food that gets rid of the fat instead of storing it. Such wonderful delicacies do actually exist? Yes, they do. Find out which they are right here.

What are the best foods to burn fat?

Spices

This recommendation came from Oscar Mortimer from WeightWorld UK, you can find out more about Oscar Mortimer here, or read more about their recommendation of Spices below.
Many spices that you can find in your kitchen constitute what we call ‘Thermogenic’ foods. Such examples include Black Pepper, Cayenne Pepper, Chilli, Turmeric, Cumin, Cinnamon & Mustard. We call them thermogenic because all of them work to boost your metabolism, which is the rate at which your body carries out chemical processes such as burning fat. Including these spices in recipes can make the difference in speeding up your metabolism to ensure that your body oxidises fat and burns it for energy faster.

Protein

This recommendation came from Oscar Mortimer from WeightWorld UK, you can find out more about Oscar Mortimer here, or read more about their recommendation of Protein below.
First and foremost, protein is an appetite suppressant, hence why the Atkins diet is so popular among people looking to lose weight. There are also three specific Amino Acids (Leucine, Isoleucine & Tyrosine) which you can find in rich protein sources, that actually work to promote the process of fat oxidation, where your body opts to burn fat stores for energy as opposed to glycogen from carbohydrates.

Caffeine

Caffeine is also great for burning fat as it is another example of a thermogenic food and works to boost your metabolism once it is digested, which in turn can speed up the process of fat oxidation.

Brown Bread

This is good for burning fat for 2 specific reasons. 1. They are high in fibre meaning that they keep you feeling satisfied for longer, which gives your body the opportunity to burn fat in the absence of added carbs that you might consume while hungry. 2. Much like with the aforementioned Amino Acids, they also work to actively encourage your body to burn fat as an energy source where possible instead of carbs.

Apple Cider Vinegar

The history of apple cider vinegar as a home remedy is very vast in all around the globe. Apple cider vinegar holds a strong position in terms of popular vinegar in the natural health community. Apple cider vinegar contains chemicals called polyphenols. They’re antioxidants which curb the cells that can cause severe disease like cancer.

Brussel Sprouts

This nutrient dense, powerhouse is loaded with a lot of fiber, very low glycemic (low chance of spiking blood sugar), and has a ton of vitamins and minerals for just a small serving: Vitamin B6, K, C and potassium, magnesium, and iron to name a few. It’s also considered to be a superfood because of the sulfer compound -glucosinolates, which help to fight cancer (has a higher amount compared to other cruciferous veggies like broccoi, kale and cabbage).

Green Tea
