When combined, these compounds work in synergy, effectively increasing thermogenesis, and energy expenditure, which in turn causes a tremendous increase in fat burning.
About an hour and a half before going to the gym eat a small piece of salmon, which is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, or just be sure to consume omega-3 rich fish oil. Then, half an hour before exercising try consuming the combination of drinks and foods presented below.
1. Omega 3 fatty acids
First, eat 200 grams of salmon at least half an hour before eating the other ingredients from the list, which as we pointed out earlier. This means you should eat it an hour and a half before the training.
Salmon fish is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which increase the energy expenditure and fat tissue oxidation and can help you build a healthy body appearance.
Drink a cup of coffee. Ensure that the coffee is fresh and don’t put any cream or sugar in it. You can put a sweetener, though. Coffee is known to raise the heart rate, blood pressure, improve the fat burning process and is one of the most powerful stimulants of the nervous system.
Studies have shown that consuming 600mg of caffeine results in an increased energy expenditure of around 150kcal per day without any additional activity.
3. Green tea
Prepare a cup of green tea. Put 2 teabags in a cup of hot water and let it dissolve for a couple of minutes. Green tea is also known to increase RMR (Resting Metabolic Rate) and helps in burning excess fat.
A study reported found that green tea extract resulted in a significant increase of metabolic rate by 4%. Over a 24- hour period this results in increased energy expenditure.
4. Raspberry ketones
Eat a cup of raspberries, rich in ketones that also help in increasing thermogenesis and increasing the RMR and overall burning of fat. If you aren’t able to get fresh raspberries, get frozen and put them in the blender with some whey protein and milk to make a delicious shake.
5. Grapefruit ( flavanone-7-O-glycoside )
Eat a whole pink grapefruit or add it in a juicer, make a juice and drink it in combination with the other ingredients from this list. Grapefruits are rich in naringin (flavanone-7-O-glycoside), which is a compound known for its fat burning properties.
Give this combo a try an hour and a half before your workout and get to experience a natural fat burning effect.
