There is no magical recipe for losing weight. It’s a game of great complexity and requires not only determination, but a fair amount of foreknowledge. Although workouts have a very important role in achieving a better physique, the food you’re consuming is just as important, some would say more important, factor in your endeavour. So, which are the foods that serve this purpose the best?
Nowadays there are many scientific studies pointing out the existence of foods which are fairly efficient in making your food leaner. Take a look at this list of 20 foods which you can include in your diet for achieving better and faster results. If you haven’t tried them yet, now is the time. Coupled with the right workout plan, they can transform your flabby belly into a firm one.
Selling you salmon for your regular diet is probably the easiest task one can have. Not only that it’s healthy, it also abounds with good old omega-3 fatty acids.
The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition published a study proving that consuming omega-3 supplement on daily bases while performing just two hours of cardio exercises during the week can lead to reduction of body-fat percentage, and at the same time lower triglyceride levels and raise good cholesterol levels.
In contrast, the same exercise regimen backed up by sunflower oil poor in omega-3, hardly yields any results in terms of losing fat. Not only is the salmon full of omega-3 fatty acids, it is also an excellent source high-quality protein. All things considered, you’ll probably never find such an ideal supplement to your weight loosing adventure.
Apples are not only good for your health, they are also fantastic fat burners. Apples contain polyphenol compounds, located mostly in the peel. With their ability to alter compounds involved in fat metabolism, they can positively affect body fat. Polyphenol compounds can increase levels of adiponectin, which is involved in such processes as regulation of energy, carbohydrate and fat metabolism, and insulin sensitivity.
Obese people usually have low levels of adiponectin, and are prone to insulin resistance, inflammations, atherosclerosis, and high blood pressure. Although it is still unclear how many apples you need to eat in order they have an effect, it’s a most certain sure that they make a good supplement to your dietary habit. This argument is also backed up by a Harvard study which discovered that the more apples and pears you eat, the more weight you lose. In fact, in the rank of fruits, apples come second only to berries.
3. HOT SAUCE
Increasing the hotness of your food can also help you to melt some fat from your body. Chili peppers, for example, are full of capsaicin. This compound is responsible for their fiery flavour, and also is considered as one of the best remedies for obesity. It awakens your metabolism and speeds up fat burning. Capsaicin also keeps you satiated, thus improving the calorie control.
