A great post by my friend at M&M Fitness
“What is a weight burning food?” Contrary to peoples believe, weight burning nutriment is not food that burns fat. The idea is, food that burns more calories than it provides. Consuming the so called ‘fat-burning-foods’ can be the important keys to lose weight.
A good way to lose weight is to eat food with high fibers and low calorie.
Below is the list of 5 weight burning nutrition.
Fat burning food #1: Garlic. The reason why garlic is a weight burning diet lies on a compound called allicin. This bacterial like compound helps reduce cholesterol and unhealthy fats.
Fat burning food #2: Spinach. Spinach contains a lot of iron and is an exceptional nutritious food and is a good cancer preventer.
Fat burning food #3: Eggs. Eggs contain a high portion of protein and therefore a really good weight reducing food. The reason why eggs are not recommended is because a couple of eggs will put you over the recommended daily amount of cholesterol. Hence the solution is to remove the yolk and you will still benefit from the high proteins.
Fat burning food #4: Oatmeal. True, it is not the tastiest things that you will ever eat. But oatmeal is highly nutritious and contains soluble fibers that helps reduces blood cholesterol by flushing out those bad digestive acids out of systems. The best oatmeal is the unflavored and unsweetened. While it is tempting to select other flavors and add sugar or butter into it, you will lose out on all the health benefit. If you must sweeten your oatmeal, do so with honey which is much healthier than sugar.
Fat burning food #5: Whole grains. Your body need carbohydrates and will start craving for carbohydrates once you decided not to include it to your daily diets. The truth is, it’s the processed carbohydrates that are really bad for you. Examples for processed carbohydrates are white breads, pasta, and rice just to name a few. The key is to eat whole grain because they haven’t bee processed and still contains fibers and minerals.
Fat burning food #6: Beans. Beans are very good sources of protein fiber and iron. Some of the best kinds of beans to eat are Navy beans, White beans, Kidney beans, and Lima beans. A word of warning, make sure to cook your beans thoroughly as they contain some proteins that our digestive tracts are unable to break down.
