Add These Fat Burning Foods to Your Meals
There are many foods and ingredients that you can use in your cooking so that you receive great health benefits as well as fuelling your body properly.
With many studies and research going on all the time, there are a lot of fat burning ingredients that you can introduce into your diet. Take a look at some of these below.
Fat Burning Ingredients
Green tea is now extremely popular in households and it is no longer classed as an exotic beverage to drink. EGCG (epigallocatechin gallate), caffeine and antioxidants are all present in green tea and therefore it does wonders for your body.
Caffeine combined with EGCG helps to boost your metabolism as well as process carbs and whilst this is happening antioxidants also flush out toxins in your body and create a more capable immune system.
Raspberry ketones are the primary compound of red raspberries and it works by regulating your abiponectic which is a protein used by your body to help regulate your metabolism.
The results of studies have shown that this is made effective by helping your body dissolve fat molecules quicker.
White Kidney Beans
If you have an excess of glucose or blood sugar this means your body is going to convert it into fat.
In order to slow down the process there are carb inhibitors that stop the release of alpha-amylase (the enzyme that converts carbs into glucose) and white kidney beans supply you with this.
The results of an all-natural and stimulant free placebo-controlled study of 60 people showed that those who were taking the inhibitor lost an average of 6.45lbs in 30 days. The participants that took the placebos lost 1lb over 30 days.
Our bodies use double the amount of calories having to break down whole grain foods such as whole grain pasta, rice bread and cereals rather than processed white equivalents.
Whilst these are all natural and healthy you need to be careful what else you eat them with as the fat burning molecules and stimulants will only work as long as you are not ingesting excess sugar as this will lead to your body producing more fatty tissue.
Capsaicin, this is what gives peppers their heat and also what makes our bodies heat up therefore increasing the amount of calories we burn.
