    Default 6 Foods that burn fat

    Just sweating it out in the gym isn't enough. Along with a healthy workout, food plays a crucial role in reducing body fat.

    Body fat is an ugly truth of life for most Indian men. Our lifestyle is such that it becomes almost impossible to avoid it. Just sweating out in the gym day and night is not enough to reach your goal of losing your body fat. Along with a healthy workout, food also plays a crucial role in reducing body fat. Here are 7 foods that help in burning fat.

    1. Eggs

    Eggs are known to be high in protein which burns fat faster than other fatty foods. It also contains Vitamin B12, 8 minerals, iron, calcium and other macronutrients, which aid the body in metabolizing fat.

    2. Fish

    Instead of reaching for your chicken curry next time, try opting for fish. Like eggs, fish is also a protein-rich food that burns more fat while being digested instead of carbohydrates or fats. They also contain Omega 3s which prevent the build-up of stress chemicals that induce fat abs especially tuna, salmon, mackerel, swordfish and flounder.

    3. Green Tea

    Green tea is almost like a magical drink that has the power to keep most health problems at bay. It keeps those extra inches away by preventing fats from getting absorbed by the body. Drinking a cup of green tea everyday goes a long way in helping you achieve a healthy life.

    4. Oatmeal

    Oatmeal not only helps in cutting down the fat content but its rich fiber content helps in the reduction of cholesterol. It also stays for a longer period in the stomach which takes care of your hunger pangs. However, its better to opt for a natural sweetener like honey instead of sugar.

    5. Dairy Products

    Dairy products are rich in calcium which is very effective in burning fat and even preventing its formation in the body. The amount of calcium in a person's body indicates how easily one gains fat. The more calcium present in your body, the easier it is to burn all the excess fat.

    6. Caffeine

    Caffeine is one of the most potent weight loss compounds available to you each and every day. Caffeine blocks the breakdown of a compound call Camp, which is responsible for mobilizing stored fats so they can be burned as energy.

    Turkey
    This clucker has the fewest calories per ounce of any animal protein. Like dairy, it contains the amino acid leucine, which may play a role in preserving muscle mass during weight loss, keeping metabolism running at full speed. Protein is also more satiating than fat or carbs—so you're less likely to overeat.

    Peanuts
    Ironically, this elephant favorite fights weight gain, slows rises in blood sugar, and curbs hunger. One study from Purdue University found that individuals who added 500 calories of peanuts to their diets for 3 weeks experienced almost no change in body weight and a 24 percent drop in triglycerides -- blood fats associated with heart disease. Researcher Rick Mattes, Ph.D., says peanuts' satiating power helps people eat less overall.

    Low-Fat Yogurt
    Plain, low-fat yogurt is one of the best sources of calcium—a mineral that may fight fat. According to Michael B. Zemel, Ph.D., director of the Nutrition Institute at the of Tennessee, not getting enough calcium triggers the release of calcitriol, a hormone that causes us to store fat, whereas meeting our daily calcium needs helps us burn fat more efficiently. Like turkey, yogurt and other dairy foods are leading sources of leucine, which also helps fight fat.

    Breakfast Cereal
    By boosting fiber and providing fewer calories from fat than other popular breakfasts (bacon and eggs, anyone?), ready-to-eat cereal can help you fill up—and slim down. Study from the Journal of the American Dietetic Association found that women who ate cereal were 30 percent less likely to be overweight than those who ate other breakfast foods. To get the most bang for your breakfast buck, choose fiber-rich (aim for 5 grams per serving), low-fat cereals like Kashi Heart to Heart. For more top brefast cereals, see WH's Guide to the Healthiest Cereals.

    Enova Oil
    Enova — made from soy and canola oils — is made of diglycerides, a type of fat that's metabolized differently from triglycerides (found in other oils—even olive) and so not stored as fat as easily. In a study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, dieters who used Enova lost more weight than those who used other oils.

    Berries
    You probably know that fiber is the magic bullet of weight loss. It keeps you satisfied throughout the day—and away from the fridge. But you may not know that berries are an excellent roughage source. Raspberries are the fiber queens with 8 grams per cup. Blackberries come in a close second with 7.4 grams, and blueberries have 3.5 grams.

    Thanks for marvelous posting! I certainly enjoyed reading it,
    This reminds me of when I grew up, after WW2! If I did not eat what was on my plate, it was served up again cold for the next meal. And yes, the meals did contain green vegetables, even brussel sprouts.

    And drink a lot of water, and try sleeping well.
    I'm big fan of Batman and Spider-Man and I love reading about Universe. My favorite TV show is Stargate Atlantis and Doctor Who. I'm a little bit of a geek
