Fat Burning Diet Archives

Are fat burning supplements bad for you?

products like apedexin and whatever else is out there.

Yes, those stuff can never be safe, any thing you buy from the drug store that concerns fat burning/muscle growth CANNOT be safe

The best and the only safe way is to lay off the junk fatty food and hit the gym

Good luck

Easiest way to lose weight fast and safely is to cut your calorie intake by eating more on fiber, fruits and vegetables. You’ll feel full with fewer calories on them. Fruits, vegetables and fibers are packed with nutrients but less on calories.

I lost 10 pounds in just 2 months using these tips.

Here are Tips to help speed up your metabolism plus help you lose weight without being miserable. they worked for me =)

1. Outsmart Snack Attacks for 4 hours and Lose Weight

Savoring Berries can oustmart snack attacks for 4 hours and help you shed 5% of your body weight in 6 months. The credit goes to dozens of blood sugar stabilizing antioxidants. Bluberries are so packed with them, just a half cup daily can boost your blood levels by 100%.

2. Fill up on Fiber and Lose Weight Fast

Fill up on Fiber – Foods rich in fiber will make you feel satisfied and help curb your appetite, helping you to lose weight fast and safely – so make sure to pack your diet with fruits, vegetables and whole grains.

3. Boost fat-burning metabolic rate by 50% by sipping coffee

Sipping coffee before a meal can supress appetite by 35%, plus boost fat-burning metabolic rate by 50%, according to extensive research at Vanderbilt University in Nashville. The study-proven dose : 250 mg of caffeine daily, taken either in supplement form or by sipping to cups of coffee or 4 cups of tea.

4. Lose Weight just by eating Yogurt

Yogurt is a calcium-rich food. Research links calcium with lower cortisol production, and it has been proven that women who increase they’re intake lose up to 40% more weight than calcium avoiders.

Plus Yogurt has live microorganisms which helps proper digetion and absorption of nutrients we take. Make sure to get yogurts that says "with live microorganisms in labels/packages".

5. Try this Hunger-Taming Trick

Cut fat and you’ll cut cravings. Consuming a high-fat diet may supress your body’s natural satiety signals, according to a new study from Pennsylvania State University. Animals who’d been consuming a diet rich in fat ended up eating 40% more of a high-calorie snack than those on average diets. Keep your fat intake to less than 30% of total calories.

6. Feel full on less food.

Crunch an apple. Noshing on an unpeeled apple can eliminate cravings and increase the amount of weight you lose on any diet by 33%.Having an apple right before lunch prevents the blood sugar dips that trigger cravings for sweets or carbohydrates later in the day. The reason: Apples are one of the richest sources of pectin, a soluble fiber that turns into a sticky gel-like substance in the gut and adheres to simple sugars, stalling their absorption into the bloodstream, according to Cambridge University researchers. Better still, a recent study in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition found that enjoying an apple before a meal curbs appetite for up to four hours, and Brazilian researchers discovered that the habit can boost weight-loss success by as much as 33 percent.

7. Speed fat burn with Cranberries.

The ascorbic acid in cranberries helps thin liver bile, making it easier for the organ to emulsify fat so so it can be quickly flushed out of the system rather than stored in cells.

8. To counteract a binge, keep your body’s fat-burning furnace running on full blast by drinking Green Tea.

Green Tea contains caffeine and the antioxidant epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) , which is proven to boost metabolic rate. In fact, in a recent 3 month study, participants who took Green Tea extract lost 4.6% of their body weight without changing their diet. To get the benefit, drink at least 3 cups a day.

Whenever I ate too much, I just drink green tea and I don’t have to worry gaining weight.

Plus my favorite tip : Before you eat, drink a glass of water. This will help you feel fuller without additional calories (water has no calories). And Satisfy sweet cravings and keep your stomach full longer by eating all-natural fruits.

Fat Burning Diets Are About Healthy Choices!

Fat burning diets are a wonderful way to lose weight and feel great. As in all things in life, you need to stick to the rules otherwise all your efforts will be in vain.Healthy Strawberry Smoothie

With so many obese people in the world, our only option is to start eating healthy. Healthy fat burning diets usually include various fat burning foods, such as greens, fresh fruits and veggies, nuts, olive oil, berries etc.

Although many people try to stay healthy, the sad truth is that many more fail in their quest to conquer the food addiction. Additionally there are so many contradicting stories on what is healthy and what is not. No wonder it is so easy to fall prey to every new gimmick on the market. Therefore, it is of utmost importance to educate oneself on what is good for you and what not.

Armed with this information you can be sure your fat burning diet is helping you to lose weight and stay healthy. We all have common sense. By using it, you will quickly realize you would not starve yourself to death. Therefore, diets that propagate a too low intake of calories are not healthy and you probably will not stick with it to the end.

Equally important is that your body needs food from all categories of the food pyramid. All meals should include proteins, fats, sugars, fibers, vitamins and minerals. Only by giving your body all, the essential nutrients it requires to sustain itself you will be able to succeed with your fat burning diet.

This takes some planning and for some of us planning can be hard because we are so much into the “mindlessly munching on pretzels” habit. You have to admit it, it’s a lot easier to reach out for a bag of whatever junk food is available than to plan a balanced meal with healthy fat burning food.

This also means that if you plan to replace crisps with a fruit, you won’t feel good. In fact, the cravings will most probably drive you to such an extent that you will be unable to resist the crisps after all. An apple plus plain low fat yogurt, for example, is more fulfilling than two apples. It is far better to mix and match the different fat burning food to create a metabolism furnace.

Also, keep in mind that raw food is better (healthier) than cooked food. Try to eat as much raw food as possible. However, sometimes it is better to cook specific food as they may harbor toxic compounds that can wreak havoc on your digestive tract.

Carrots on the other hand contain fragile nutrients that will be destroyed in a frying pan. Cooked carrots still contain very important nutrients and vitamins.  Cooked or raw, carrots are always enjoyable.

Is sushi any better than grilled salmon? Apparently not! What to do then? The best way is to eat a mixture of raw and cooked veggies and fruit. No need to torture yourself to eat raw stuff if you usually eat it cooked. Be experimental and use your culinary skills to create interesting dishes.

Make your choices of fat burning food according to your own liking. If you see your food burning diet as an adventure, you may be in for a new taste bud experience and uncover food that you never thought of before.

Fat burning diets are more than something you try for a couple of weeks every now and then. No, no, no. It is a changed lifestyle, a changed perspective on your views of food.

Try to stay clear of sugary things, fats and eating huge portions or second helpings. If your love food is chocolate then demonizes it will frustrate you and most likely sabotage your best intentions. So be kind to yourself and your cravings.

Fat burning diets and healthy lifestyles are not about giving up on foods we love, but on making choices that are sustainable for long term – for a lifetime actually! These choices will enhance your life and create a new healthy you.

What Are Some Super Fat Burning Foods?

If you don’t know what super fat burning food is, it’s food that enhance body’s fat burning capacity.

I’m not looking for ways to lose weight, just changing the way I eat.

I’m vegetarian.

There are no foods that make you burn calories more.

Your metabolism is increased by activity and higher muscle mass only.

Citrus - Super Fat Burning Food

Celery is so low in calories that it takes more calories to digest it, than it gives the body. There is no proof that water with lemon or any citrus fruit increases the metabolism.

One thing that is true about lemon juice is that when you put it on your food, it causes you to salivate, and saliva is what breaks down your food for digestion. It just helps break down that steak you have eaten so your body can absorb the nutrients easier.

I think that is where people come up with the lemon juice/grapefruit diet farce.

I am 34 and trying to get back in shape. I look good all around but I just cant get rid of these love handles.
Currently, I am running, playing tennis, jump rope, dieting, drinking 2-3 glasses of water a day.
Are there certain foods that destroy fat?

I appreciate your tips.

First, I’m glad to read that you’re taking positive steps to improve your health. Secondly, please note that spot reducing doesn’t work. Your body loses fat ‘all over’ rather than in sections. Finally, losing weight requires both exercise and caloric restriction. Since you’re going to be doing both, keep the following in mind (it’s what I’ve told people for over 2 decades in my practice):

1) Check with your physician to be certain that you are physically able to reduce your calories and increase your exercise habits safely.

2) Make certain that the calories you are eating are as balanced as possible. Finding out how much protein, carbs, and fats your body needs on a daily basis can really help keep your energy levels high all day long. The #1 reason my clients tell me that they’ve stopped dieting or exercising in the past is because of low energy ebbs. Also remember that you may need supplements to help things along.

3) While exercising (before, during, and after) be sure to consume enough water. The key is not to be ‘thirsty’ (overtly) during this time of exercise.

4) Adding weight bearing exercise (i.e., lifting weights) will help to tone your body and the thermogenic (fat burning) effect will last long after you’ve stopped working out — even if your workout is simply walking).

5) Remember that you’ll probably hit plateaus (times when you’ll stop losing weight) several times during your weight loss progress. This is completely normal and is only temporary but it can last for a couple of weeks at a time. It is very important to remember that even if your scale isn’t showing progress, your entire body is being positively effected by your efforts.

6) Measure different parts of your body (neck, upper arms, lower arms, chest, abs, waist, belly, butt, thighs, etc.) and do it accurately. Write these measurements down and check them once every 2 weeks. This will help you remember that your body is ‘reducing’ all over — not just in one particular area. If you’re weight training you may actually notice a slight increase in some areas of your body (don’t worry — if you’re a woman you won’t start looking like a bodybuilder).

7) Keep focused on your end goal and concentrate on losing maybe 1 pound a week — sometimes you’ll lose more, sometimes less. As long as it’s an average, it’s okay.

8) Lastly, remember that you’re doing a WONDERFUL thing for your body.

Keep up the good work. I’ve worked with hundreds of people in the past 20 years (mostly women) who have lost (individually) HUNDREDS of pounds safely. Better still, they’ve kept it off — Kay lost over 350 pounds and has been at her goal weight for 7 years now.

As for what to take, that depends entirely on what your body needs. Anyone who suggests that you take something that ‘works for everyone’ is either confused or deluded. For example, if you had a twin brother or sister your bodies could react completely different to certain supplements or foods on a metabolic level.

There are supplements and foods that help to counter the production and absorption of fat (chitosan, certain Omega’s) but you may or may not need them to be successful.

Any questions, don’t hesitate to write and ask.
