Fat burning foods…do they exist?

As strange as this may sound at first, certain foods require more energy to process and digest than others do and eating them regularly can help you reduce your body fat % and stay energised throughout the day.

 Many foods fit the bill as “high-energy” foods, such as celery, carrots, and apples – just to name a few. Simply eating a small portion of these types of foods right before your meal will give you all the benefits listed above, making it easier to stick with your nutrition plan.

Sounds pretty simple? It is. Here’s how it works…

BREAKFAST: * Eat a 1/2 of an apple 15 minutes prior to your first meal. * Then eat a healthy breakfast that contains, a natural starchy carb, like porridge or oatmeal. * And finally, include a protein source like a boiled egg . …You’ll find that you’ll eat less, and your cravings for sugar will be dramatically diminished. The pectin in the apple peel will help your blood sugar stabilize and you’ll be less hungry throughout the day and have more energy.

LUNCH: * Eat a raw carrot (or several baby carrots) immediately before lunch. * Then, eat a healthy lunch: a small portion of a natural starchy carb, such as black beans or brown rice, some veggies, such as a salad, and a lean protein, such as chicken, tofu, or fish.

DINNER: * Eat 1-2 raw celery sticks (or similar veggie) prior to dinner. * Then, eat a healthy dinner of a lean protein source with lots of veggies. * Chicken salad, prawn fajitas, or lean steak kebabs all work well.

Following these three easy steps can cause radical changes in your body’s ability to cleanse itself, burn more fat, stay energised, and prevent you from overeating at each meal.

Try it then train hard!
