Nature’s WEIRDEST Fat Burning Foods

5-foods-150x95Ready to kick start your fat loss using the weirdest natural foods you can find in your grocery store? As you probably know by now, I always recommend eating natural foods vs. many of the so-called “low fat” foods for weight loss.

Here’s a list of the top natural foods to add to your daily meals to fire up your metabolism today.

Grapefruit

grapefruitYou have probably heard of the grapefruit diet – the fad diet where you eat tons of grapefruit. Don’t worry. I’m not about promoting something quick, easy and ultimately temporary. You can’t survive off of only grapefruit for very long. However, including grapefruit in your diet can help your weight loss. Research has shown that eating half of a grapefruit prior to a meal can help you drop unwanted pounds faster. Grapefruit capsules, juice and real grapefruit have all proven to do the trick, so it is very easy to add this food to your daily diet (of course I always recommend eating the real thing whenever possible). On top of that, grapefruit also contains cancer fighting elements…and half a grapefruit is only 39 calories!

 

Sardines

Sardines offer some of the BIGGEST health and weight loss benefits around. For starters, they are loaded with protein which helps control your blood sugar, and as a result, sardines make you feel full while also firing up your metabolism. Sardines are also loaded with omega-3s which strengthen your cardiovascular system and boost your mood. So scan some delicious recipes and start using this weight loss super food into your daily diet.

Quality Beef

beefThis should go without saying, but it is important to always select meats that are from animals that have been grass-fed and not factory-farmed. Quality meats contain high amounts of protein which is critical to your weight loss success. Remember, protein helps build lean muscle. And lean muscle helps your body burn unwanted fat more efficiently. Protein also increases your metabolism, provides a full feeling for longer, and as a result, keeps you from overeating. And grass-fed beef has plenty of omega 3 elements which provide multiple benefits to your overall health and fat loss goals.

 

Green Tea

green teaGreen tea has also been linked to fad diets, but having a cup or two each day will provide super health benefits and help with weight loss. If you don’t like the taste of green tea, try adding some raw honey or stevia to sweeten the taste. This drink has proven to be a natural stimulant of weight loss, and as an extra dose of health, green tea is rich in antioxidants which increases your heart health, assists in digestion, and regulates blood sugar and body temperature. Also, it increases your metabolic rate, which will help you burn more fat. So take a drink of daily nutrition with green tea.

 

Pumpkin

pumpkinIt doesn’t have to be Halloween or Thanksgiving in order for you to enjoy the taste and nutrition that comes from pumpkins. This fall vegetable is loaded with fiber and a simple can of pumpkin only contains 40 calories (be sure to use 100% natural pumpkin). Also, a diet with high amounts of fiber helps weight management, flushes out toxins and helps your digestive system operate much more efficiently. And with pumpkin being a super easy food to prepare, you can enjoy this tasty food in a variety of recipes all year long.

The 5 Commandments Of Smart Dieting

The 3 Week Diet
To really see best results from any diet plan you choose to use, you need to learn a few ‘diet commandments’. These are guidelines that must be followed if you are going to see superior results that will help propel you forward.

Sadly, many people miss out on one or more of these and it greatly costs them their success.

Want to learn more? Check out the list of five commandments below.

Thou Shall Eat More Protein

Of all the foods that you could eat while on a fat loss diet, protein is perhaps the most important. Protein helps combat hunger, it helps stabilize blood glucose levels, and it helps prevent lean muscle mass loss. This in turn helps speed up your metabolism and accelerates the process of fat loss.

Don’t let your diet intake fall short. Aim to eat some protein in each and every meal and snack that you consume.

Thou Shall Eat Regularly

While the concept that your metabolism will increase the more often you eat isn’t entirely accurate — as the boost you get after a meal is directly related to the size of that meal — eating regularly does help to keep hunger at bay.

By feeding your body frequently throughout the day, you’ll help avoid food cravings, energy lows, and make it that much easier to stick to your diet program.

Thou Shall Prioritize Fresh Foods

When selecting your foods, eating fresh is a must. We live in a world where processed foods are around every corner and just waiting to cause us weight gain.

Eliminate these and you’ll really give your diet a boost. Focus on foods in their natural state — fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, healthy fats and oils, and lean proteins.

If you only make one change to your diet plan, make it this one.

Thou Shall Set Short Term Goals

One diet rule that you should abide by and follow is to always set short term goals for yourself. Think about what you are doing in the here and now, not months from now. It’s too easy to lose sight of your goals if they are going to take place six months to a year down the road.

Try thinking in three-week segments. Three weeks is about how long it takes for good habits to form, so is the perfect amount of time to you build behaviors that will stand the test of time.

This is precisely why The 3 Week Diet was created. It will help you stay motivated and consistent until you don’t even have to think about making those changes any longer — They’ll just be automatic.

Thou Shall Stop Comparisons

Finally, stop comparing yourself to others. Realize that this is your own journey and your own body. It’s unlike anyone else’s so you simply can’t expect to see the same results as everyone else.

Instead, start comparing yourself today to yourself from yesterday. That will give you all the details you need to know. If each day you are getting better, you are successful in your journey.

So keep these diet commandments in mind. Focus on these and you can feel confident that you are headed in the right direction. Read more CLICK HERE!
