There are dozens of healthy foods, like goji berries, that have been dubbed as super foods because they provide your body with nutrients needed to blast fat, but these foods are often difficult to find or expensive. Try some of the best foods that are readily available in most grocery stores to kick off your fat burning journey:
Apples. As the saying goes, “an apple a day keeps the doctor away” and when you incorporate apples into your diet you will notice a difference. Apples provide your body with the fiber needed to keep you feeling full and regulate your digestion. In addition to their appetite suppression effect, research has shown that apples may also prevent chronic disease.
Broccoli. Your parents were onto something when they told you to eat your vegetables. Not only is broccoli full of vitamins and antioxidants that reduce the risk of heart disease and several cancers, it is also full of fiber at only 27 calories per serving. If the taste gets to you, try it with some hummus for a tasty snack.
Eggs. Start your morning off right with a couple of eggs. For less than $3 for a dozen you will get a low calorie food packed with protein and amino acid. A 2008 study showed that people who consumed eggs as part of a healthy meal plan reduced their body mass index more than those who didn’t so go ahead and eat up!
Raspberries. Summer is coming and raspberry season is almost here. Raspberries not only taste delicious, they have also been shown to speed up metabolism and are full of nutrients and low in calories making these the perfect go-to snack to burn fat.
Almonds. Almonds are often known for their heart benefits, but research has shown that the protein and vitamins found in almonds make them a good a choice for weight loss plans. The blood-sugar stabilizing effect of almonds can prevent cravings and the cell walls work to reduce absorption of their fat giving you the benefits without having to worry about the high fat content.
