Eat Fat Burning Foods

Updated on April 2, 2011

A study from Arizona State found that folks with low-blood concentrations of vitamin C, who walked on treadmills for a 60-minute session, burned 25 percent less fat than other participants with adequate amounts of C. Fortunately, a simple dose of vitamin C remedied the lackluster fat-burning potential of the participants. Vitamin C is necessary for creating the compound carnitine, which helps turn fat into fuel. Vitamin C dilutes the fat and makes it less effective and helps in releasing the fat from the body.

Next, let’s take a look at Chilies: Foods containing chilies or cayenne pepper are considered to be as foods that burn fat. Chilies contain capsaicin that helps in increasing the metabolism.

Green Tea


Green Tea: Studies show that green tea revs up your metabolism, so drink several cups a day.

fish oil

 Fish oil: Fish oil supplements are a great way to shed pounds. A recent study found that fish oil is great for helping your body burn fat more efficiently. You may lose up to 2 kg over 3 months

A list of natural fat burners wouldn’t be complete without including caffeine or coffee. Caffeine is one of the main ingredients in most fat burner supplements and really can help with burning fat. By drinking coffee or consuming caffeine in any other form you will be increasing your metabolic rate, increasing your heart rate, and ultimately it will help suppress your appetite. Make sure you are consuming caffeine through a healthy food or drink.

Fermentation process causes the vinegar to have constructive acids that join with

alkaline elements and minerals in the body. This produces a cell scrubbing effect.

Your mood and your skin can also benefit. People also manage to control diabetes, and improve sleep with balanced diets.

30 days


If you haven’t developed a taste to eat properly, don’t worry, you will. Studies point out that it takes about 30 days to develop a habit. In that amount of time, you will also be used to eating healthy; the foods you crave will begin to be the right foods. After you have switched to eating healthy, it will be difficult trying to go back to your bad eating habits.
