5 Fat Fighting Foods

There are many people who remain skinny while eating crap and never exercising, yet you’re still overweight after eating right and exercising daily. The problem may have to do with your metabolic rate. The people who eat junk food all day, yet remain skinny, have a high metabolic rate which means that their body burns foods about as fast as they consume it. Of course eating like that wouldn’t be a good idea in the long-run and can lead to many problems. Regardless, there are healthy foods out there that can boost your metabolic rate. Below are the top five foods you should buy to speed up your metabolism. Mixed with proper exercise this is a sure-fire way to lose weight.

1. Cayenne Peppers

Spicy foods in general are a great way to get your metabolic rate up, but cayenne peppers are the best of the bunch. Peppers contain a substance called capsaicin, which causes the degeneration of fat cells in the body. Eating spicy foods will result in a higher body temperature that will make your body work and burn calories in order to cool it off. Peppers are the most popular way to lose weight.

2. Salmon

Eating salmon will increase your overall metabolic rate, but there are other weight loss benefits as well. Because of the high amount of Omega-3 in Salmon, you will feel full longer after eating it which will prevent the possibility of over-eating. Omega-3 also increases blood flow. It is recommended that you consume at least two servings a week.

3. Strawberries

The liver is responsible for releasing toxins that can slow down your metabolic rate. Strawberries are an effective way to prevent this because they benefit the liver which will prevent the toxins from being released.

4. Whole Grains

Most people tend to buy white bread, which is a completely refined and processed food that is very unhealthy for your body. Of course this means that these foods can be responsible for any extra weight you may have. It is suggested that you switch to whole grain foods instead. When you consume a whole grain food, you body has to work more to break down the vitamins and nutrients, thus boosting your metabolism. This is beneficial to weight loss as well as general health.

5. Green Tea

Our fifth food isn’t a food at all, it’s a beverage. You may have heard the green tea is great for weight loss. While this is true, it is specifically great for increasing your metabolism. Don’t drink too much though due to the caffeine. One-two cups per day is optimal.

With a mixture of the above foods, you’ll surely boost your metabolism up to a level that will cut your weight. Nutrition isn’t everything though. You will need a diet that contains these foods as well as an intensive exercise program designed to cut weight. There are many options for personal training in the area, so when looking for a great personal trainer, make sure they have a proven track record of client success.
