I am going to reveal my own personal 3 ‘superfoods.’ This is not particularly based on the nutritional value they provide you with, but with fat-burning effect they have on your body.
We have all seen charts like the one above. Of course fruit, vegetables, etc are healthy and will help us maintain a healthy lifestyle and perhaps lose weight.
But this article will delve into foods that actively stimulate your body’s metabolism and help you burn fat.
1/ Chicken – I truly believe this should be the basis of everyone’s diet (unless you are a veggie of course!) It contains high protein content that will help your body recover after exercise and well as maintaining and building lean muscle, which is the single most effective way to burn fat. Roast a chicken at the weekend and use it for sandwich meat for lunches during the week.
2/ Bananas - Firstly bananas are a great source of vitamins and minerals which puts you body in the best position to raise its metabolism and burn fat. But I have chosen bananas over other fruits due the carbohydrate it contains. They contains natural, slow release carbohydrate which is perfect for (a) making you feel fuller for longer, and (b) preventing the need to indulge in other, more calorific carbs.
3/ Raw Nuts – Not only do these act as a particularly filling snack, but are pack full of healthy poly and mono-unsaturated fatty oils too. These oils are absolutely essential for the absorbtion of vitamins and minerals into your body. And as discussed above, these vitamins and minerals will help increase your metabolism.
Today’s Takeaway - Get these 3 foods into your diet more regularly and your body will burn more fat.
