10 Secret Fat Burning Foods

September 6, 2010 by superch6

Grass Fed Beef or Bison (This is not as easy to find, partially because your typical grocery store won’t have this). Slowly as the health conscious people of the world come forward with nutritional breakthroughs we’re seeing this meat in SOME supermarkets and health food stores.

Let’s get one thing straight, red meat is NOT bad for you. But keep in mind you need to know what the animals is eating that is making him healthy or not. Grass fed cows that graze year round on pesticides free and hormone free grass are the healthiest you can get. In fact, grass fed meats contain up to 3 times as much Vitamin E as grain fed meats, have far fewer calories in there meat, have far less cholesterol, and even help lower cholesterol because their ratio of amino acids is in it’s healthiest state.

Grass fed beef is actually so healthy that is rivals wild salmon in terms of Omega 3s (the healthy fats).  It even contains significant amounts of antioxidants.  Just make sure the meat you are getting it grass fed.  Marketers will try to trick you by saying that your meat is fed a “vegetarian diet” but this is still no good because they could be feeding the cows all corn which is terrible for them.  So just make sure it says “grass fed” and you will be eating an extremely healthy protein.

Grass Fed Whey Protein is one of the best forms of organic protein you can find. One of the main countless reasons is that it contains the number 1 antioxidant on the planet known as Glutathione, which are body is deficient of. This is because it is only produced through raw meats, raw eggs, and raw dairy (which whey protein powder comes from)

Not only that here is a list of benefits you get from grass fed whey protein powder.

Apples – These help control weight gain, lowers heart risks and help fight cancers. The skin is the most nutritious part of the apple too! Granny Smith apples are great for you as well…any apple that browns easily or oxides quickly. WARNING: do not substitute apple juice for apples…you want to eat whole foods because that is where you get the fiber. Without fiber your body is going to have a much harder time absorbing the nutrients and breaking down the juice in your foods.  Personally, I never ever drink any kind of juice but I do use my blender a lot because when you blend you keep the whole food in your meal.

Avocados – These are one of the healthiest fatty foods in the world. Guacamole is another great way to help with avocado intake and is one of my personal favorite toppings.  Just make sure you get guacamole that is not full of sour cream.

Avocados are so stocked full of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and nutrients that expert nutritionists have said if you were on a deserted island with avocados you’d be fine to live a healthy life.

Do not let the fat in avocados scare you away.  I could go on for days how you could (and should) be eating much more fat than you probably are right now and you would actually lose weight.  The key is eating natural healthy fats and avocados are one of the best.

Whether mixed up in a guacamole or eaten straight, this is one of my new favorite fruits that is a superfood.

Eggs – Free-range organic eggs are a great natural source of protein. But make sure you eat the yolk as it contains almost all of the antioxidants, vitamins and healthy minerals.

Just like meats, it’s important to have healthy chickens that have a healthy diet and are free to roam around and exercise. Regular store bought eggs come from caged chickens and produce unhealthily and imbalanced eggs compared to free-range organic chickens.

Also, free range organic eggs from healthy chickens will do wonders for your cholesterol…not raise it.  The reason that eggs got a bad reputation back in the 1980s and 1990s is that people did not understand good cholesterol from bad and they were using caged chickens instead of free range.

Beans (Navy Beans, White Beans, Kidney Beans, Black Beans & Lima Beans) These are great sources of protein as well as adding healthy calories, no cholesterol and lots of complex carbohydrates which also boost your energy.

Beans are also a known leader at reducing the risk of heart disease, strokes, help prevent cancer while simultaneously giving your body a plentiful amount of Vitamin B, Potassium (which helps fights cramps during workouts & strengthens your nervous system).

There are other more exotic beans you should feel free to try such as Chickpeas (or Garbonzo beans) which is the main ingredient for making hummus, lentils and even lava beans.

Nuts (Almonds, Walnuts, Pecans, Macadamia) – Nuts are one of the best ways to cut down on overeating. Eating a handful of nuts before you eat a meal is an excellent way to increase the bodies way of burning fat. A handful of nuts could give you everything you need to burn fat while getting tons of nutrients.

Pecans are a great source of vitamin B1 and protein, almonds are loaded with calcium to strengthen bones, walnuts help lower cholesterol, hazelnuts contain 17% protein, peanuts and pistachios are loaded with Vitamin B to help boost energy, metabolism and the synthesis of red blood cells.

Pistachios are one of my favorite nuts that I eat every day.  They are also full of fiber.

Berries (blueberries, blackberries, strawberries, raspberries and Goji Berries)
Berries are great because they are loaded with not only vitamin C to help boost your immune system but are known as potential cancer fighting foods.

Not only that they are loaded with some of the best antioxidants found in any foods. As well as being a great source of fiber it slows down carbohydrate intake which controls blood sugar levels top help prevent insulin spikes which are known to stimulate fat gain.

I personally add berries into almost every single whey protein smoothie I make.  I love all kinds of berries and it is fun to try adding some exotic berries from time to time.

Green or White Tea (White tea is the best if you can find it) Green and white teas are loaded with antioxidants. This helps inhibit the growth of cancer cells, lower cholesterol levels, helps fight arthritis, cardiovascular disease, & infection.

Green tea has been used as a chinese medicine for over 4,000 years ago. Not only has it even been known to prevent tooth decay but decaffeinated tea is an ultimate relaxer and stress reliever.

White tea actually comes from the same tea leaf as green tea but they are plucked at a younger age.  They contain very trace amounts of caffeine and white tea actually contains more antioxidant

Wild Fish – Wild Salmon or Sardines (stay away from mercury rich foods like swordfish or shark) Salmon is considered one of the best fishes for you to eat because it tastes incredible but it also is so rich with protein and Omega-3 fatty acids that boost your metabolism and burn more fat. Additionally, salmon is known to help have positive effect on cardiovascular health and protect against heart disease.
