List of food that burn fat into your diet each week until you find that you’re eating much more of them than you used to.

1. Beans and Legumes

Beans are low-cal and packed with protein and fiber, which help you tone up and lose weight. It is a staple item in The Four Hour Body’s Slow Carb Diet. They are lauded for their ability to help regulate blood sugar levels and help with digestion due to their fiber content. Try adding a can of organic black beans as a side to your next meal, especially if it can replace a more carb-laden item like bread or rice. You’ll cut a lot of saturated fat and replace it with fiber.

2. EggsEggs

The egg debate rages on with so many gurus saying the yolks are OK, and so many others saying for weight loss you should stick to egg whites. Eggs are a good source of protein, play it safe and get the benefit of the protein without worrying about the yolks. Eggs contain vitamin B12, which your body needs to metabolize fat.

3. Almonds and Other Nuts

This is one food that almost every single diet plan in existence suggests you eat. Nuts are one food that unites the vegetarians and the Paleo followers, and we have yet to find a diet program that says not to eat them. Nuts slim your tummy by keeping it full. Stick to 25 almonds a day to satisfy your hunger pangs without overloading on calories. Skip salted nuts; too much sodium raises blood pressure.

4. Chicken breast and Fish

Your body burns more calories digesting protein than carbs or fat. Go for tuna and salmon; they are full of omega-3s, which help prevent stress chemicals that promote fat abs. Try using different spices like the ones mentioned above to make it more interesting. Combined with strength training this can help tone your muscles leading to a higher metabolism.

5. Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese and Peanut butter

This low-cal, calcium-rich treat activates the body’s fat-burning hormones. Plus, because of its high protein content – it contains more than any other dairy product – you’ll stay full longer. Grate one ounce on soups or salads daily. Peanut butter is packed with niacin, which keeps the digestive system on track and prevents belly bloat. PB does have a lot of fat, so limit yourself to no more than two tablespoons a day. Pick all-natural PB, which doesn’t contain added sugar.

6. Pears And Apple

Pears often get overlooked as the long lost cousin to apples, but they bring their own unique flavor and host of benefits, including weight loss properties. They help you feel full when you eat them, and they’ve got a different consistency to apples and other fruits, making their fiber even more effective. Apples are high in fibre and low in calories- this makes them a great snack. This is just what you require to make you feel full and stay away from binging. They are also rich in vitamins B and C, antioxidants and minerals that help to keep your body energised.

7. Blueberries

The wonderful thing about blueberries and weight loss is that it’s not just general weight that you lose, but specifically the fat. They might be responsible for helping the body break down fats and sugars, plus they taste amazing and can flavor up otherwise tame meals. They also play well with other fruits in a fruit salad. Just be sure to eat them without adding sugar to them. Even studies have shown that people who consumed blueberries daily had better shot at belly fat loss than those who did not.

8. Grapefruit

The high water content in grapefruits helps to cleanse the system from within, and also keeps you hydrated and satiated. In addition, the fat burning enzymes in the fruit make it a super food for weight loss. Since it takes more energy to digest this fruit, it further helps you burn more calories.

It’s best to use fresh ingredients whenever possible, especially with the super foods listed here. They lose a lot of their antioxidant value and weight loss power the more they’re processed. Keep things as close to nature as possible. While buying fruits, stay away from canned ones as they contain sugar syrups and are high in energy density.

Stay Healthy. Eat Healthy
