Natural Fat Burning Foods – A List of Top Eight Fat
Here is the list of eight natural fat burning foods-
Oatmeal is a complex, starchy carbohydrates which is great for fat loss.
Oatmeal is the one carbohydrate that almost every fitness models eat
on a daily basis. With its low glycemic index, otmeal release carbs
slowly which is exactly what you want for fat loss.
Brown rice is another great source of low glycemic index
carbohydrates. Here I’m not talking about fried rice or other rice dishes
with additional calories and fats. Steamed or boiled rice is the right
choice. When you are on a fat loss, avoid white rice which has a high
glycemic index and it release carbs faster than brown rice.
Whole Wheat or Whole Grain Products
When going for whole wheat or whole grain products, you have to
make sure the label says 100% whole wheat. Avoid white bread and
white rice products as it has a high glycemic index and also cause
bloating in some individuals.
Yams are very low in glycemic index and should be included in your fat
loss diets. But on the other hand white potatoes are high on glycemic
index and should be avoided. Tom Venuto on his BFFM program
suggests to combine yam with a green veggie, a chicken breast, lean
red meat or fish to get a perfect fat burning, metabolism boosting meal.
And he was 100% true and it worked like a charm for me.
Green Fibrous Vegetables
Fibrous carbs are the No.1 fat burning carbs. They are very low in
calories and you will not over eat them. It is highly recommended to
take green fibrous vegetables late in the day rather than taking starchy
Chicken breast is the No.1 lean protein source of a fat loss diet. Avoid
thighs which are high in fats. Also make sure to grill, broil or roast the
chicken and not fried. My favourite is the grilled chicken and mostly I
take it for lunch.
Egg whites are another lean protein sources with zero fat. Egg whites
are the best lean protein choices for your fat loss diets. Eggs are also
the super high quality protein sources. But the yolk contains all the fats
and must be avoided. It doesn’t means to throw away all yolks, as the
yolks contains vitamins and proteins. Many fat loss experts like Tom
Venuto suggests one yolk for every six whites you eat.
Fish provides a variety to your protein consumption and it also provide
you with good fats which are essential to burn fat. Some fish to
consider are tuna, salmon, mahi mahi, orange roughy etc. But also
remember to eat your fish baked or grilled and avoid frying with high
calorie oil and butter.
