Here’s a little secret that the majority of people that want to lose don’t know. Your brain releases fat BURNING hormones or fat STORAGE hormones depending on what you eat; people gain when they consistently eat fat storage foods in excess. To help you ‘Eat Your Way Slim’ here are the top 6 foods that make your brain release fat BURNING hormones to help burn body fat the fastest.
Great Fat Burning Foods
1. Chicken Breast
This is definitely top of the list, nutritionally an 8oz chicken breast only has 220 calories and less than 2 grams of fat and carbohydrates whilst packing a massive 48 grams of extremely high quality protein.
A great thing about chicken breast is that its easy to cook and it literally goes with anything; you can use it in a stir fry, curry, biriyani and it tastes great on its own with a bit of seasoning for flavour. It is also very cheap too, all of this makes chicken breast number 1 on the list.
2. Chilli Con Carne
Chilli con carne is great for fat loss. It is an all in one meal that includes all 3 fat loss super foods – protein (minced beef) legumes (red kidney beans) and vegetables (chopped tomatoes, onion, peppers).
It’s great to have fish in your diet for health purposes – fish is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, and essential vitamins and minerals which helps your resistance to disease and your energy and well-being in the long-term. Not to mention it is a fantastic fat burning food.
4. Lean Steak
While the best fat loss protein is chicken, steak is a very close second. I eat steak on occasion and use it more as a treat because of the higher fat content compared to chicken and fish, a lean 8oz steak has about 12 grams of fat where chicken breast only has about 2 grams. Overall it is a fantastic source of protein.
Steamed broccoli is a fantastic food for fat loss as part of the vegetable section of a fat loss meal. A 12” stalk of broccoli contains 9 grams of fibre which helps keep you full for longer so you don’t feel the need to binge and it also contain 7 grams of protein! The best way to cook broccoli is by steaming rather than boiling; this will retain more of the vitamins and minerals and it helps give it a crispier taste.
Eggs are a fantastic fat loss food that allows you to make many different variations on meals. I change between poached and scrambled eggs mainly but you can also fry or hard boil them. Experiment with adding your favourite vegetables, meats, and seasoning into your scrambled egg to add more taste and flavour. A great breakfast for fat loss (and to supercharge your metabolism for the day) is 2 poached eggs, 2 rashers of turkey bacon and 2 organic sausages
