The Best Fat Burning Foods for Weight Loss



Fat burning foods are so important for weight loss.

Because certain foods have what is called a “thermogenic effect”.
It means that your body will burn calories with the process of digesting your foods.

If you eat 100 calories worth of protein (25g of protein),
your body will use between 20 and 35 calories of them just in digestion.

So what are the best fat burning foods ?


1- Lean Meats are good fat burning foods

As I evoke it a bit before, proteins have a very high thermogenic effect,
by burning around 30% of the calories during digestion.

You can begin to eat more lean meats to get a good themogenic effect in your body.


2- Drink Green Tea

Green tea contains something called EGCG (epigallocatechin gallate) that speeds up your metabolism after drinking it.

A study in an issue of the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition has shown that green tea activates the body’s thermogenic fat-burning activity.

Moreover, green tea contains caffeine in it, and the association with the EGCG increase even more your metabolic rate.


3- Hot Peppers: little known fat burning foods

Hot peppers contains something called capsaicin that will heat your body up, making you burn more calories.

Eat these the way you prefer: dried, cooked, raw, in powder….


4- Coffee

The higher is your metabolic rate, the easier it is for you to burn fat and eat what you desire.

Coffee contains a lot of caffeine, which  can increase the metabolic rate up to 11%.

Coffee will also offer you a lot of benefits


5- Whole Grains

If you know me, you then know I am against a crazy carbs consumption.

But I admit that digesting whole grains burn almost twice as many calories than digesting processed foods.

So whole grains are good fat burning foods, if you consume them reasonably

Cardio versus Weight Training to Burn Fat ? ‘



Cardio versus weight training ? Which one is best to burn fat ?

At first sight, one might say that if you want to lose fat,
all you have to do is cardio or more cardio because
it is made to burn off calories.

And if you want to build muscle, one might say that you have to do weight training.

But is it as simple than that ?


1- Cardio versus weight training: does cardio has an advantage ?

It is true that is you look just at calorie burning, cardio as a little advantage.

You burn around 12 calories doing a minute of cardio vs 10 calories if you lift weights.

But always keep in mind that time is precious, and it can be boring for some to do cardio
for a long time.

If you have the time, you can burn up to 800 calories for an hour of cardio (which is great).

And if you don’t have a lot of time, you can do HIIT as a form of cardio.

Timing cardio to optimize fat burning is also important.

(Find here when it is the best time to do cardio.)


2- Cardio versus weight training: what does weight lifting offer ?

The good thing about weight lifting is that it gives you
a huge metabolic spike because after  just an hour of your workout,
your body will burn off more calories
just to help your muscles to recover.

You will burn an additional 25% of the calories you burned during weight training.

So if you burned 100 calories during weight training, you will burn
later without doing anything 25 calories more,
for a total of 125 calories.

And let’s remember something important.

The more muscle mass you have, the more calories you burn during the day,
without doing anything and without changing your diet


3- A good diet is the real key to fat loss

Both have a lot of advantages for fat loss, we can’t deny that.

However, even if you combine both cardio and weight training,
the real key is having (and keeping!) a good diet.

Every day I see plenty of people who train a lot, doing cardio
and/or weight training BUT still holds on a lot of fat.

Why ?

Because they have a very poor diet.

You can’t lose a lot of weight if you go crazy about food.

You have to know what to eat exactly to burn fat.
