Ever wondered what foods can help you in your journey to burn that fat? Well we've done the research for you...
There are some foods available to us which can actually aid fat burning!
EAT and BURN fat. Crazy isn’t it. :)
These are my top 10 fat burning foods, in no particular order, which I have personally found to work for multiple clients in their fat loss goals.
These foods hit the mark on a list that I use for fat burning foods. They are low in calories for the volume that they take up, meaning they appear to last longer. They create only a small increase in insulin release and they are really simple and easy to prepare. If you are serious about fat burning this summer, then include some of these foods into your daily diet. The more the better!
1. Egg whites – Basically this is just pure protein containing about 4 grams of protein per egg white and that adds up to just 16 calories, no carbs or fat too. So a ten egg white omelet, for those mathematicians out there will only be about 160 calories!
2. Low Fat Yogurt – Yogurt is a great way to actually get a complete source of protein. And, the creaminess of yogurt can help satisfy any cravings you may have along the way. Zero fat greek yogurt contains about 22 grams of protein per 200g serving and only around 120 calories. Add some fresh fruit for some added carbohydrate and antioxidant fix.
3. Broccoli – Ok we used to moan and scream at the top of our lungs when our parents told us to eat our greens or there was no dessert (WHEN I WAS A CHILD!, HONEST!) but Broccoli is an amazing food to add to your meals. Broccoli bulks meals out, adding fibrous carbohydrates and loads of nutrients at a very low calorific expense. Broccoli is a must for a fat burning diet!
4. Almonds – This is one of the exceptions to my low calorie rule. Almonds will help you burn fat because they are full of good fats, great sources of vitamin E and manganese. They are also a good source of protein too. A small handful can make a good mid-morning snack at around 140 calories and 15 grams of real good fats.
5. Lettuce – A great bulker for your meals, very very low in calories and a lot of studies actually suggest that your body requires more calories to actually digest the lettuce than it actually contains, can’t be bad!
6. Apples – Very convenient item to carry around in your bag for an on the go snack. The average apple contains around 35 grams of carbohydrates and about 80 calories and also contains a few grams of fibre along the way.
7. Oats – Lovely slow release carbohydrate perfect for the mornings. Oats slowly release energy throughout the day until your next meal, perfect for adding some premium whey probiotic to create a smooth flavourful porridge with good amounts of protein too.(http://www.bodybuildingwarehouse.co.uk/bodybuilding-warehouse-premium-whey-probiotic-2-2kg)
8. Turkey – One of the lowest sources of meat protein around and keeps cholesterol levels low as it doesn’t contain any. Turkey is high in protein and isn’t that bad in taste either!
9. Tuna – Alongside a lot of lean fish, white fish including tuna are one of the most common sources of protein that most fitness fanatics seem to head towards. Tuna is easily available in tins and now we get these non-drain tins on the shelves now with ring pulls for easy opening.
10. Spinach – Yes, I know, Popeye springs to mind! Well Spinach is a very low calorie item to add to your meals, literally would have to eat so much Spinach to get high calorific amounts on your plate! Spinach is also an amazing source of iron which helps as a lot of people seem to shy away from red meat when they are dieting.
