Listen up, ladies! if you’re looking for a way to supercharge your fat loss results, this is it! Don’t underestimate the power of food to turn your body into a fat burning machine. We know it’s cliche, but you really are what you eat.
Despite what marketing gimmicks have told us, losing weight doesn’t happen overnight. It takes hard work and commitment. There are, however, a few things you can do to speed up the process. Eat your way slim by including these 5 foods.
AVOCADO: With their smooth, creamy texture avocado’s are great for adding to crackers, dip’s and sandwiches for a healthy dose of fat. Don’t let the dreaded f-word through you off, avocado’s aren’t in the same league as things like cakes and biscuits, their fat comes to unsaturated sources and contains hefty amounts of omega 3 and 6 – all great for boosting satiety and general health.
LEAN MEATS: What makes lean meats, fish and chicken so potent in the fight against fat is their secret weapon, protein. It’s all thanks to the thermogenic effect it exerts on the body where extra calories are burned during the digestive process. This is also the reason why protein powders (both whey and vegan) are so handy as meal substitutes and smoothies.
BLUEBERRIES: I just love blueberries, I could sit and eat box after box. And the best part is I wouldn’t have to worry about getting fat, either! Blueberries are full of fiber, which in addition to helping your digestive system run smoothly, are also great to boost satiety. Add them to cereal, smoothies or just enjoy them on their own.
ORANGES: If there’s any food that’s great for helping you burn fat on hot day, oranges are surely it! Pop them in the fridge and enjoy a slice or two when you’re feeling peckish. The effect is a double-whammy, you get the ‘coolness’ and high water content which work to curb your appetite, and you get the essential vitamins and minerals which flush toxins and keep you feeling good on the inside.
NUTS: You could say I’m nuts for nuts! I keep a small bowl on the kitchen counter-top and when I’m feeling peckish I just grab a handful. Do the same and you’ll be amazed how quickly that chocolate biscuit in the panty loses its appeal.
