Fat Burning Foods

5 Fat-Fighting Foods to Add to Your Diet!

By Monica Ciociola
From the Million Dollar Body Club - Join Today and Workout to Win!


Here's a twist on dieting you might like: instead of pointing out all the forbidden chocolates and other sweets and treats you can't have, let's talk about what you can have! Of course, just adding these "fat-fighting" foods to a poor diet of pizza and potato chips won't give you a figure like Anna Kournikova. But if you replace some of the bad calories you're currently consuming with calories from these foods, you might just be nicely surprised next time you step on the scale.

1. Apples. The skin of apples contains pectin, an insoluble fiber that serves as nature's own appetite suppressant. It's also believed that the scent of green apples is an effective stress reducer so keep a few out on your kitchen counter or at your desk.

2. Beans. High-fiber beans such as chickpeas, lima beans, and kidney beans make you feel fuller longer so you eat less and temper those unnatural cravings.

3. Dairy. Eating 3 to 4 daily servings of dairy, such as low- or nonfat milk, cheese, and yogurt may help burn more fat by shifting energy stored in fat cells to working muscles, according to a recent study. Not only will it help get rid of old fat cells, but it'll make it easier to keep the weight off for good!

4. Oatmeal. Try starting your day with a bowl of oatmeal instead of a Krispy Kreme. The regular, slow-cooking kind is much better for you than the sweetened, over-processed "instant" type. Oatmeal is a great source of the essential fatty acid GLA, and it contains a cholesterol-fighting combination of fiber, protein, and complex carbohydrates.

5. Nuts and seeds. These contain a lot of fat-fighting protein and fiber that will help you lean downas long as you don't overdo it as they're also high in calories and fat. Filling an empty Altoids container with raw almonds or walnuts will help with portion control and give you a healthy and filling snack when you're on the go.
