Let me share a short story with you, I have lost 5 pounds of stubborn body fat by just eating these 7 foods that have always been lying around in the fridge. I never took notice of them and never in the world would have guessed that they can help be get in shape.
If I had known earlier, I would have lost more body fat and probably be parading on the beach topless by now. But never mind that, it will soon come. You now have the excess to the information on how I loss 5 pounds by just consuming these 7 foods. They are not magical foods or foods that contains dangerous chemicals that enhances the body. These foods merely complement the weight loss program and get the body into a fat burning mode.
Here are the foods that I have been secretly cooking in the kitchen while my friends in the gym scratch their head trying to find out what fat burners that I am taking!
Fat Burning Food 1: Eggs
Yeah, you have heard of this before. You probably heard of eggs being the king of foods since the days of Arnold. Unfortunately, eggs have been getting a bad reputation lately for containing high cholesterol levels. You don’t have to eat like 10 whole eggs a day! Just eat one egg yolk and eat as many egg whites as you can. The egg yolk is the one that has all the cholesterol. The eggs whites are pure protein. One egg white has 3 grams of protein and zero fat and cholesterol.
So, for breakfast, fix yourself a one-egg yolk and 3 egg whites. You can make it hard boil, fry it or steam it. It does not matter that much.
Fat Burning Food 2: Oatmeal
That food up there in the title is the food for champs. Yes, oatmeal is a must for any dieter’s menu. It has many goodies and makes you energetic. It is high in fiber, high in vitamins and minerals. It is also low in fat and helps fill your stomach faster.
But not oatmeal is really good for weight loss. If you see some fancy oatmeal that is flavored and instant, don’t buy them. Get the ones that are at the bottom of the shelves. Get the ones that are called rolled oats. They are hard, does not taste so good and natural.
For today’s breakfast, eat your oatmeal along with your eggs. Cook your oatmeal in water or some low fat milk. Take about 5 tablespoons of rolled oats. Together with the eggs, you should be filled till lunchtime!
Fat Burning Food 3: Milk
Good old milk. Mums really know what is best. Milk can help you in your weight loss efforts. There was an article published by the Obesity Research and according to them, females that consumed low fat dairy foods like low fat milk at least three to four time daily burn 70 percent more body fat compared to low dairy eaters.
There is another interesting study conducted by Purdue University and their study shows that people that take 3 cups of fat-free milk put on less body fat over the course of 2 years compared to those on low calcium diets.
These two reports alone can convince you enough to add some dairy into your daily menu.
So, for your snack today, take a cup of low fat cottage cheese or a cup of yogurt. Take this probably 2 hours before lunch. You don’t want to go for lunch with a hungry stomach.
There is more! Now you need to find out about fat burning food 4 for your lunch.
Fat Burning Food 4
How do a steak, some broccoli stir-fried with mushrooms, an apple and a cup of no sugar coffee sound? I know, it does not sound as exciting as a cheese burger and an up grade of a serving of fries and large Coke but you know what, you are on a diet and a mission to get lean! No complains now.
Anyways, I find that having a large steak as a treat. Having steak is a good choice because it has a good amount of protein. Beef is red meat and contains loads vitamin B-12, iron and creatine. Just keep to portion small, about a size of your palm. Bodybuilders in their contest preparation stage really takes their body fat levels super low and they still eat red meat till that day of competition. This tells us something about beef and weight loss doesn’t?
Mushrooms and broccoli are great complement to the main meal. These foods are slow release in energy and can sustain your energy levels for a longer time before you feel hungry again.
Apples contains chemicals called pectin and it helps the body to slow down the absorption of foods including fat plus they promote the water absorption from food which aids in the releasing fat deposits from the body.
Coffee is a natural energy booster and it jacks up your body metabolism.
There still more to it. The snack and dinner is what really makes the difference. Plus, you need to add an important factor to this menu to make it working! To be continued in 7 Fat Burning Foods That Helped Me Lose 5 Pounds Part 2
