While nuts, broccoli, oysters, brown rice, and hot peppers as fat burning foods, just remember many of the foods that fall into the same categories as these also help burn fat.
Pistachio, walnuts, and other types of nuts have health fats that aid in burning the other types of fat that aren’t essential to a man’s health. They also contain vitamins and the essential fatty acids needed in one’s diet. The soluble fat found in nuts will burn faster than fat found on meat. You don’t have to stop with the two main nuts I mentioned, Brazil nuts, almonds, pecans, cashews, and peanuts are also a great way addition to your diet. Get those nut trail mixes mixed with fruits like raisins and cranberries to add more fiber to your diet.
Believe it or not, broccoli is the best type of fiber next to beans a man can eat since there aren’t any calories found in this vegetable. It’s packed with vitamin C and in one 100g serving it packs 150% of the daily dose of this vitamin. Just add more green vegetables like lettuce, cabbages, collard greens, and spinach to your diet so you don’t get burned out on one type of vegetable that helps burn fat.
Oysters have the low calorie intake of 50 calories per half-dozen eaten. The biggest reason men should eat them is because of the zinc found in them. Zinc helps decrease the appetite. Whether or not you believe men have PMS, the zinc also helps decrease the cravings women often find they have during this time of the month. So, why wouldn’t men have similar types of cravings like women? Even if you’re not a fan of oysters, adding seafood overall to your diet will be beneficial to your fat burning process.
Get away from the white rice and turn to brown rice to help burn fat, fellahs. Brown rice is rich in fiber and this type of rice will help your body burn twice as many calories since it is a whole grain. Since white rice is processed brown rice, it won’t burn calories. Not a fan of rice at all, think whole grains like oatmeal as an addition to your daily diet.
Hot peppers is another food source that can help men in shedding pounds. The compound, capsaicin, found in these little gems heats up the body that makes your body melt those calories. Even the dried peppers, flakes, and powdered cayenne will do the trick in aiding in fat burning. Like that hot sauce? It’ll work too. Use peppers and hot sauce like you normally would and help your body burn that fat.
