Default Fat burning foods-

Tabasco- salsa, red pepper flakes raise body temp and boosts metabolism. Eat hot sauce or hot peppers at every meal 2-3 days a week.

Eating 3 apples a day you can lose three pounds in three months. Those who also included exercise lost 17 pounds in 3 months.

Eating 2 cups a day of indole saturated green foods can break down toxins that lead to uterine cancer and help shed 24 lbs a year- Spinach, broccoli,
green peppers, kale.


Protein has a well documented metabolism-stimulating effect and has recently been found to raise levels of an amino acid that forces a dieter's body to metabolize fat. Almonds are a good calorie-burning protein and a good fat.

Drink a cold glass of water. The amount of calories your body burns increases up to 30% after drinking a 16 oz cold glass of water.

Raspberries 8 oz a day pare pounds three times faster thandhot peppers,d


Grapefruit- drink a small glass at each meal to lose 3.3 lbs in 12 weeks.

Chromium picolinate 200 mcg-400 mcg can reduce body weight by 1 1/2 lbs a month.

Enova- 2 Tbsp daily of this combination of soy bean and canola oil can help you shed 50% more weight and burn 30% more fat. Light and tasteless, it can be used on stir-fry, salad dressing and cakes. www.enovaoil.com

To burn fat the easy way- Medium Chain Triglyceride (MCT) oil (Health food store) made from coconuts that increases calorie and fat burning. Some lost up to 36 lbs in a year without cutting calories.

Eat protein (3-6 oz. egg whites, chicken or fish) at every meal as it requires more energy to digest so you can burn more than 10% of your intake by adding more lean beef, chicken or fish to your diet.


Eating a serving of broth based soup (nothing creamy) twice a day can double your weight loss success, a new Penn State Univ shows.

Sniff popcorn while walking helps subjects burn 22% more calories. The scent triggers the release of endorphins, feel good chemicals that also speed metabolism. Smelling or eating popcorn is proven to deliver such a powerful pre-workout energy surge that it can help you burn up to 28% more during your workout.

2 oz. of almonds a day, washed down with water suppress the appetite. (Choose raw and unsalted almonds but you can "roast" them in the microwave for a couple to three minutes. Turn them so they don't burn.

Tomatoes are rich in Vitamin C and helps to naturally produce carnitine, an amino acid that helps you burn fat.You can also consider watermelon, pink grapefruit, Japanese persimmons, red-fleshed papaya and strawberry guava, which helps to lower insulin.


In summer turn up the air conditioner thermostat. Keeping it too cool tricks your body into thinking you need more insulation and makes you eat more so you can put on extra weight to stay warm. If you always use the AC and are not used to the heat--Study released in June 2006 says Air conditioning is making us FAT! It is a contributory cause of obesity, according to the International Journal of Obesity. AC encourages overeating the research found. It provides a fake winter and in winter, whe it is cold we eat more calories to keep insulated our bodies from the cold.

But be sure that you do eat breakfast in the morning to rev your metabolism to burn calories. Oatmeal burns fat while building muscle and keeps you from getting hungry. Eat your oatmeal with cinnamon (to regulate your blood sugar as hard-to-lose weight is linked to high blood sugar) and fat free milk (organic milk is best to avoid the iodine fed to cattle to prevent infections.) More than 75% of successful dieters eat breakfast. If you don't like oatmeal try a banana. 1/4 c. berries and 1 c. OJ in blends. Check the orange juice can or jug to see if it contains both citrate and malate or the calcium in it cannot be easily absorbed.

Apple cider vinegar and honey for obesity and weight loss: vinegar helps prevent fat from accumulating in the body. Vinegar and oil dressing makes you feel fuller and and to avoid hunger-induced sugar spikes. To help lose 2 lbs in a month- 2 T. of vinegar a day in pickles, cabbage, beans, tomatoes, vinaigrette drizzled on top of grilled vegetables or salads or in the case of balsamic vinegar as a topping for ripe strawberries.

To lose weight while still having lots of energy-Take multi-vitamins. Vitamins B6, Vitamin B12, chromium. Missing essential nutrients trigger some food cravings. Chromium may help normalize blood sugar levels. Iodine, selenium, Vitamin A, zinc and omega 3 are musts. (See why you should take your multi-vitamin?)

Omega 3 (natural fat) fuels the body's metabolism. If you aren't getting enough vitamin D your thyroid can't properly regulate metabolism. Without them, your body stops burning calories, turning it into a fat-producing machine and it also results in short term memory loss and reduced mental abilities). You may substitute 1-3 grams flaxseed oil capsule daily. Walnuts are one of the best omega 3 foods. 1000 mg (2 servings a week- make sure that at least one type is one of the oilier types such as salmon, mackerel, sardines and herring. (Seafood, seaweed and dandelion greens) Tuna sandwich -the fish is loaded with Omega 3 fatty acids--just 6 grams of fish oil a day boosts metabolism.

Watch a comedy show after eating to lower your blood sugar levels by as much as 40%. Giggling can help you lose weight. Laughing for 15 minutes a day burns 40 calories (4 lbs a year). It is your chest and stomach moving that burns calories so the heartier your laugh the better.

Relax to unlock fat stores that stress causes.


Foods that make you fat-Reduced fat peanut butter (they take out the fat and put in the sugar), instant oatmeal--sugar is added, coffee creamer has 80 calories for every two tablespoon dose, instant potatoes which manufacturers often blend with fat to improve the texture when they are reconstituted. so they can have as much as 200 calories when they are reconstituted, diet soda-one diet drink boosts your risk of becoming overweight by 65%. Since diet soda tastes sweet, your body expects it to have calories--and when the soda doesn't, your body craves something that does.dddd
