Want to burn fat and lose weight? So many people want to look good and feel good, plus get healthy. Good nutrition has just as much importance to you as going to the gym. Exercise plus proper nutrition will equal the results you want for fat burning. Say goodbye to foods that are high in calories but low in nutrients, today we are going to discuss three fat burning foods.
Grapefruit is an excellent source of fiber, vitamin C, and vitamin A. The average grapefruit is only about 100 calories- that is pretty low. More calories are actually needed to digest it than the calories that are actually in it, giving your metabolism a boost! Grapefruit contains high levels of an antioxidant called naringenin that stabilizes the metabolism too, knocking those junk food and sugar cravings out!
Green tea is packed with polyphenols like catechins and flavonoids, which function as powerful antioxidants. It keeps you alert without the jitters that coffee can give. It helps with mood and mind because it increases dopamine in the brain. Green tea is one of the most popular ingredients in fat burning supplements. So, enjoy a few fresh cups and let green tea work its many benefits for you!
Coconut oil is a must have for fat burning especially if you want to reduce the dangerous belly fat that can be so hard to lose. Several studies have shown that both women and men who added 30 ml of coconut oil to their daily regime reduced belly fat without exercise or diet-Boom!
These are all great foods to try for fat burning action along with other healthy food choices.
However, did you know that a food allergy or sensitivity could block your fat burning weight loss efforts? People who struggle to lose fat or weight even though they are eating healthy are now able to test for food allergies and sensitivities with our Food Allergy Test Kit. Our test kit even tests for grapefruit, green tea and coconut oil! Plus it checks for 184 (IgG foods) which are the delayed food reactions; these are the foods that are often not suspected. With your good efforts and our comprehensive testing, it is time to get that fat burning so…burn baby burn! You got this;)
