Fat Burning Foods – How to Choose the Right One

People often search for lists of fat burning foods. There is really no need to spend lots of time on the internet, in fact there are many things you can do to help yourself to reach that goal:

  1. Eat fruit twice a day

It’s amazing how many types of fruit you can fit into your diet. You did not have them during your third or fourth year of life. But they are worth getting as a new-ish food from the land of the living. Eat a cantaloupe for breakfast and a grapefruit for lunch.

Your body will thank you as it has a low fat and high fibre content and it contains lots of minerals and vitamins which make it a fantastic provider of vital nutrients. If it’s the middle of winter, Christmas and you need to eat like a lad, just keep frozen grapes in the fridge for the emergency chocolate run. Remember also that dried fruit contains much fewer calories than the fresh version.

  1. Fill up on vegetables

Vegetables are already part of our meals. No need to pile them on – just eat them. They are low in fats and calories and are extremely good for the general wellbeing. The problem is that we seem to eat too much food based on the starchy vegetables such as potato, tater and baked potato. These are higher in calories and fat than other vegetables. Avoid high starch vegetables if you are trying to lose weight. Start the day with a small salad which is full of nutrients, vitamins and minerals.

  1. Add good fats

Not all fats are bad. There are some fats that are called essential fats which actually help your body. These are monounsaturated fats and polyunsaturated fats. We need them in small quantities. The most important of these is omega-6 fats which is found in canola oil, peanuts, sunflower oil and potatoes.

There are two kinds of polyunsaturated fats which are Omega 3 (which you get in fish) and Omega 6 (which you get in corn). They are important and necessary for the brain growth in children and for pregnant women. For weight loss you should replace saturated fats with the polyunsaturated ones. You can readily get these fats in fish and you can also get them in potato, avocados and flax seed.

  1. Get out of your comfort zone

No pain, no gain! Except in your efforts to lose weight, when you are exerting your body and it’s in pain anyway. Exercise does not have to be stressful.

Listen to music or re-listening to some old hit records to help you make exercise enjoyable.

  1. Exercise for longer

If you do shorter workouts, you may burn fats but it’s possible that you’ll get bored because you do not get attractive results. You will not be able to stick to your weight loss plan.
