WEIGHT LOSS - FOODS THAT HELP YOU BURN FAT



There are two kinds of fat. Visceral fat which is deep inside your body, that surrounds your your internal organs and this is really the dangerous kind of fat, It just doesn't sit idle doing nothing, In fact it secretes nasty substances which are absorbed by the organs and that leads to various diseases. Now the other kind of fat is the subcutaneous fat which is stored beneath the skin that is visible - in thighs, belly, buttocks, hips, waist, arms and so on. It's really important to lose weight, protect your organs, be in best of health and keep diseases at bay. 

If your metabolism is poor, you cannot burn fat easily. However, there are ways to facilitate burning fat. If you want to lose fat, you have to burn more calories than what you consume. Certain kinds of food help to burn more calories than the calorie content of the food itself. What happens is, natural fat burning foods increase your metabolism and the body burns calories while you are digesting the food or resting. These fat burning foods help to remove stored fat from cells to use as energy. You have to follow a balanced diet, that includes fat burning foods and exercise. Exercise certainly boosts metabolism and help in burning fat as well. Let's take a look at these magical natural foods you can include in your diet to raise your metabolism, use stored energy and help you burn fat and facilitate weight loss. 


1. Apple
Apples contain pectin that prevents cells from from absorbing fat. It helps the cells absorb water, which enables release of fat deposits from the body.

2. Fruits with vitamin C (orange, lime, lemon, grapefruit, tangerine)
They increase your metabolism and fats are diluted and end up burning quickly.

3. Low Fat Dairy
Calcium in milk and low-fat dairy help to raise our metabolism. Absence of calcium in the diet can trigger the release of a hormone called calcitriol, that makes the body store fat.

4. Eggs
Eggs contain a high amount of protein which raises your metabolism. Eggs contain vitamin B12, which breaks down and burns fat. Eggs make you feel more full after a meal. Vitamin B12 also allows continuous break down of fat once you have consumed it.

5. Lentils
They contain high levels of protein and fibre which helps to boost metabolism and stabilize blood sugar. The body burns more calories while you digest them. 

6. Lean meat (turkey, chicken)
It takes more energy for your body to digest the protein found in turkey and chicken than it does to digest the carbohydrates or fat found in other foods. Protein rich foods raise the metabolism by causing your body to work harder during digestion and while that happens, your body burns more calories.
