Healthy and Fat Burning Foods

Several foods are helpful when going on diet. Some help the digestive system function better, some are energy consuming while being digested, and others make us feel full without adding any extra weight. All these foods help you lose weight as they considered fat-burners.

Here is a shortlist of the foods that make you feel active and healthy:

Green Tea
Experts say that drinking 5 cups of green tea can help you burn 70 to 80 calories per day. Green Tea can help you calm down. It prevents cancer as well as other diseases. It also increases metabolism.

Cinnamon
Researches showed that applying a quarter of a teaspoon of cinnamon with a meal helps reducing sugar levels, as high sugar and/or excess sugar in blood may lead to higher fat storage in the body. Cinnamon also gives a sweet taste to food, especially to those who like it.

Protein
Protein is necessary to build muscle. The more muscles you build, the more fat you burn even while your body is at rest. Protein also has higher thermal effect than other macros, so we digest protein faster than carbohydrates and fats. Moreover, you can get the best types of protein from turkey, egg white, tuna, and chicken breast.

Dairy
Numerous studies have showed that including low fat or skimmed dairy products in your diet can help you lose more weight.

Water
If you give up a cup of water a day, it becomes harder for you to lose weight. Dehydration slows down metabolism and can lead to sugar craving as well as fatigue. Experts recommend drinking 8 cups of room temperature water daily.
