10 fat fighting foods

by -

These 10 fat burning foods will help your weight loss goals become much easier. Knowing what you should be eating is half the job when it comes to fat -fighting and weight loss. Add these to your shopping list next time.

Green Tea - Green tea contains catechins an antioxidant that increases fat-burning.Studies ahve shown tht nregularly drinking green tea throughout the day can significantly speed up weight loss.

 

Watermelon has a high water content relative to its carbohydrate value so you will feel full quickly. It also contains high levels of citrulline to promote balanced blood sugar levels.

 

 

Popcorn is a great alternative to crisps and fat-heavy savoury snacks. A bowl of homemade popcorn without added salt or butter makes a great alternative and is highly portable too. A fraction of the calories of your usual bag of crisps.

 

 

 

 

Beans - these are high in fibre which boosts levels of the digestive hormone called cholecystokinin (CCK) also known as a natural appetite suppressant. A study at the University of California found this hormone speeds up fat loss.

 

 

Garlic is high in methionine, glutathione and selenium all of which help to clear out your liver and aid detoxification. This is a great tool for stubborn fat that won't shift.

 

 

 

Water! Water! Water! Water is the fast track route to successful weight loss. Often when we are feeling hungry - we are actually thirsty and drinking water takes away that feeling of hunger. So, when you are craving food and your meal is a few hours away, drink water and see how the craving subsides!!

 

 

Eggs are a great source of protein which helps to curb hunger pangs. One study found that people who ate two eggs with brown toast for breakfast consumed less calories for the next 36 hours than those who had a bagel which is the same amount of calories as two eggs on brown toast!

 

 

Tinned tuna is a low-fat protein that is packed with the stress-busting vitamins B6 and B12. Research from the University of Maryland found stress encourages you to overeat and eat the wrong foods. Making sure your B Vitamins are topped up will help you cope with stress much better.

 

 

 

Dark 70% cocoa solids or higher chocolate contains catechins as in green tea which helps to speed up your metabolism. So the occasional treat of a few pieces of dark chocolate can actually be good for weight loss!!

 

 

Oats - if you start the day with porridge or a healthy granola the soluble fibre in oats delays the stomach emptying so you feel fuller for longer. It is also one of the few foods that tastes just as good when it is cooked in the microwave. Quick and easy porridge with apple and cinnamon makes a great start to the day.

  • "I am a 49 year old woman who has always cared about healthy living. About 6 months ago I began to suffer with daily hot flushes, hair loss and general fatigue for which I couldn't seem to manage even with my healthy lifestyle of daily yoga and a healthy vegetarian diet. I found out about Natural Solutions on the Internet and made an appointment to enquire bout menapausal program's.  After my first appointment with Andrea I saw the value of an improved and varied diet, the introduction of a whole range of supplements and the continued need for regular detox program's. 6 months on, I'm really pleased to say that I hardly suffer from hot flushes, my hair loss is no longer a concern and actually found new hair coming through and my energy levels are back to normal. I thank Natural Solutions for bringing me the awareness I needed to ease of the menapausal symptoms and to allow me to think ahead about the way I can transition through the menapausal years with greater ease, so that I can continue to live with greater vitality.
