And you should be clearer about how to combine food types according to your metabolic typing and caloric intake.
Armed with this powerful information, you are more than ready for your Fat Burning Food List. You can now create your very own Healthy Nutrition Plan which will help you lose weight and provide benefits to your health and well- being which will truly amaze you!
Fat Burning Food List
Citrus fruit reduces the fat profile of your body providing easy energy to boost your metabolism. This in addition to giving you 139% vitamin C, a scientifically proven fat burner and 25% of your daily value of fibre. Other citrus fruit include grapefruit, kiwi fruit, tangerine and lime, all excellent choices for a citrus bursting breakfast to get your day started!
Oatmeal (excluding rolled oats and instant oats)
Great choice for its soluble (dissolves water) and insoluble (does not dissolve water) fibre properties.
After digestion, the soluble fibre forms a gel-like substance in your digestive tract and hinders the absorption of cholesterol into the blood stream. The insoluble fibre gives you a feeling of satiation keeping you fuller for longer and does not add calories to your body. The high fibre content of oatmeal is what makes it a superior choice when it comes to its fat burning properties.
Wild Alaskan Salmon
Due to the anti-biotics and contaminated unhealthy grains fed to farmed salmon, Wild Alaskan Salmon or other types of wild fish is best. Fish and in particular Wild Alaskan Salmon is a great source of protein and healthy fat (rich in omega-3, omega -6 and fatty acids). Its falls in the high protein category, is low in calories and is relatively low in saturated fat. This no carb, no fibre food is a clear winner in your fat burning food regime.
An absolute must for your fat burning arsenal. Although avocado has a high caloric count the fibre filling properties far over-ride this mis-understood fact. Avocado provide a whopping 54% of your recommended daily value of fibre! And what does fibre make?… fabulous fat burning!
So giving this precious pear your priority is perfect for your diet programme! (try saying that quickly!)
Most vegetables have a low caloric count with the exception of potatoes, sweet potatoe and yam and contain essential minerals and vitamins that improve your overall metabolism. Vegetables such as broccoli, spinach, artichokes, cabbage, Brussels sprouts are lower in calories. Vegetables do not contain fat and have a low carb count so are definite keepers in your quest to select the best!
Get rid of the white and get down with the brown! (that goes for pasta too). While white rice has been stripped of most of its nutritional providing layers, brown rice has only the outer layer, called ‘the hull’ removed (making it a whole food). It is low in calories and one cup provides 2g of your good fat intake.
This zero cholesterol, low sodium food is a natural choice for your weight loss programme. With a healthy carb count, 5 grams of protein and 14% of your fibre, who could turn down, all this brown goodness? Packed with great vitamins such as K and B6 and essential minerals, it is sure winner in boosting your health.
They require even more energy to be stored as fat! They have a low fat, carb and fibre count and turkey breast in particular has 27g of protein in one serving which makes it almost a pure protein.This pukka protein definitely climbs high to the top of the list of fat burners and will certainly support your weight loss challenge.
If nothing else, always chose organic when it comes to your eggs. 1 large egg contains 6.5g of protein and provides the necessary minerals and amino acids your body requires. They are low in unhealthy fat, have a low calorie profile and can improve your good cholesterol when eaten in moderation.
Egg whites in particular have zero grams of fat and 4 full grams of protein making them an excellent energy source to burn fat and calories while you build muscle. It is the egg yolk that contains the fat content that some people would rather avoid. But do not avoid this food it is a great eggxample (sorry, couldn’t resist!) of a super fat burning food.
Nuts can help you feel full while increasing your body’s ability to burn fat. Walnuts and almonds in particular are a great source of healthy fat and are the pick of the bunch for a healthy snack choice.
