Top 10 Fat Burning Foods

Fitness First USA

There are so many types of fad diets floating around the internet promising lean physiques in no time. These may seem appealing at first, but they aren't long lasting.  However, hope should not be lost! Try eating these top ten foods to burn your body fats quickly.

1. Salmon

Fatty fish, like salmon, are good for your heart and lower your triglycerides. It contains Omega-3 unsaturated fats. These are essential fats for your body, and they also make your fat metabolism better. The fats in salmon are enough to make you satiated so you are less likely to overeat. You should have salmon or other fatty fish twice a week for quick and better fat metabolism. 

2. Coconut Oil

Coconut oil has many health benefits. It is different from other fats you have in your diet, as they contain MCTs or Medium Chain Fatty acids. MCTs have a different metabolic pathway than regular, fatty acids because they get broken up by the liver and are readily absorbed in your blood stream. The quick and efficient metabolism of coconut oil helps in burning fats. 

3. Eggs

Eggs are rich in protein and help you speed up metabolism. They have a high TEF or Thermic Effect of Food. Foods that are high in TEF burn more calories to get digested. Add eggs to your daily breakfast and salads to lose fat. 

4. Berries

Who doesn’t like to snack on raspberries, strawberries, lychees, blueberries, and blackberries? They are not just delicious but also help you reduce fat and contain less sugar than most fruits. Berries are rich in antioxidants and fiber that help reduce fats. Eating a cup of berries not only reduce fats but boosts your immune system too. 

5. Avocados

If you are bored with the avocado obsession, you should know one thing. Avocados have monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats. Foods that contain both of these fats improve fat metabolism. Avocados also lower blood cholesterol. Studies show that avocados can reduce your BMI and waistline.  

6. Grapefruits

Citrus fruits have potassium and antioxidants which helps in reducing fats. Grapefruit goes a little extra by regulating insulin levels, thus burning calories and fats better than other citrus fruits. 

7. Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple cider vinegar for weight loss is one of the oldest remedies. The acetic acid in apple cider vinegar helps burn fat and reduces fat storage. It also lowers your appetite and blood sugar level. Take two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar for better results.

8. Full-Fat Greek Yogurt

It is rich in proteins, prebiotics, and probiotics. Probiotics are ‘good bacteria’ that regulate your gut function. Prebiotics feed those bacteria to our gut. Foods that are rich in proteins, probiotics and prebiotics are good at reducing belly fat. 

9. Brown Rice

Rich in whole grains and fiber, brown rice is one of the favorite snacks of fitness inthusiasts. High fiber content and presence of chromium regulate blood sugar level and reduces fat storage. 

10. Olive Oil

Use of olive oil in daily foods is considered very healthy and good for reducing weight. It has Omega-3 fatty acids. Olive oil regulates appetite and is good for the brain and heart function.
