A size zero figure, a fit transition into your middle ages and a lean mom are the three most coveted spots in a woman’s life. More so now, with the advent of numerous lifestyle changes that demand and glorify a certain type of physique. And even if we do leave aside the glamour aspect of a fitter you, we also see and read and know that many major health issues arise from excessive weight and lack of exercise. To combat health problems too, a more regulated diet and exercising becomes imperative!
Every day a new diet plan and a new novel idea for losing weight floods the internet and people start working on it as soon as possible. But more often than not, these diets and food charts bomb. Reason is simple enough- you cannot lose weight by taking away essential nutrients from your body. The positive effects of doing so are largely outnumbered by the negative effects of the same. Therefore fat burning foods are the most plausible and effective way to cut down on your calories.
For those still in oblivion of this incredibly simple way to lose weight, let me give you a simple explanation. Three types of techniques cone under this. One would be where some foods are difficult to digest. In the sense that they require your body to give up more calories to digest them than they themselves provide. Scientifically putting it, I would say that the input is more than the output and so, you end up losing calories than gaining them by eating. Now let us move onto the second technique which is also very simple to comprehend. The metabolic system of your body is the one that bears the hefty task of burning those calories. So if by any means or methods you could speed it up then you would be burning more calories in lesser time. This is where fat burning foods come in. This category of foods helps speed up the metabolic system and result in weight loss. The third way is quite the opposite of the first. The body requires time to detox and flush out fat excess fat. And because the stomach is always involved in some process of digestion of new intake the detox gets delayed. The simple solution to this problem is eating foods that take very less time to digest and therefore create the necessary time for your body to digest the stored intake.
Some of the most common fat burning foods are eggs, skim milk, jalapeno, green tea, beans and many more. Eggs have high protein content so it takes your body a lot of effort to digest them. They also provide an impetus to your metabolic system and because they contain B12 they also help burn fat cells. Jalapenos on the other hand can really speed up your metabolism, sometimes even up to 25%. Skimmed milk helps lose excess weight due to its high calcium content. It also keeps the levels of insulin in your body low thereby help to prevent storage of fat in your body.
Be it spinach, raw mangoes or raw bananas, or tuna or salmon- there are many natural foods that provide you with necessary nutrients and at the same time give you a regulated diet by counting down on excesses.
