Fitness4Her believes that women should enjoy the foods that they eat, foods that taste good and are nutritious too. Nutrition is the foundation of a healthy diet and all weight loss programs should include foods that supply the vitamins and nutrients that a woman’s body requires. Just because you go on a diet doesn’t mean you should deprive yourself of good tasting, nutritious foods. But you should watch the fat content and portion size of your meals.
There are many foods that you can eat that will help you to burn fat quicker and easier. To make it easy, I have come up with five fat burning foods that are full of vitamins and antioxidants. I have examined each food item and have given a brief description of the benefits you can achieve by adding these to your diet.
Drinking a glass of milk, especially after a workout will help your body to build muscle and burn fat. People with a greater muscle mass burn fat faster and easier, even when they are lying around on the sofa. Some studies on drinking milk have reported twice the weight loss for dieters who drank a full glass of milk each day.
Full of fiber, both soluble and insoluble, this whole grain is an excellent way to start the day. Oatmeal helps to lower cholesterol, fills you up, keeps insulin levels balanced and helps to relieve constipation.
Full of vitamin C and antioxidants, grapefruit is low in calories. Eating grapefruit as part of a diet can help you to burn fat and reduce weight.
Loaded with antioxidants, green tea has a chemical called ECGC that speeds up the brain and nervous system and increases the metabolism. A couple of glasses each day can help to burn an additional 80 to 90 calories.
A wonderful source of fish oil, eating sardines and reducing fat intake, can increase weight loss and help to actually burn fat, too. Studies indicate that people who substituted 7 grams of fish oil for 7 grams of fat, lost weight faster and easier than those who did not.
