Fat Removing Foods

Updated on January 20, 2015

It seems that nearly everyone is trying to find an easy way to lose weight and burn off some excess fat. We know that eating properly and exercise is good but still we want a faster, easier way. One way to aid the weight loss process is to add some fat removal herbs to your diet. Some of these herbs work as stimulants, diuretics and appetite suppressants, or as natural laxatives. These fat-burning herbs can also speed your metabolism and assist with your weight loss efforts.

Drink green tea or take green tea extract. Everyone is familiar with some of the benefits of green tea. According to Michelle Chin ND, Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine, this tea contains properties that activate enzymes responsible for dissolving fatty acids, aiding the fat-burning process. One of the antioxidants in green tea stimulates metabolism and, in turn, speeds up weight loss. These properties, along with caffeine, turn fat into fuel, helping you shed excess water and burn body fat.

Cleanse with the cayenne pepper cleanse. One of the recipes is called the Master Cleanse. According a recent University of California-Berkeley study, this is a great way to fast. This is a unique detoxification diet intended to expel toxins that from the body, although fans of the diet claim it's effective for weight loss. This cleanse recipe calls for 24 oz. of water, 3 oz. lemon, 3 oz. grade B maple syrup and ¼ tsp. cayenne pepper. Fasting while drinking the cleanse recipe seems to reap the most benefits.

Don’t kill these wonderful weeds--they are packed with nutrients and vitamins. The natural benefits of the dandelion root include detoxification and weight loss. Early spring is the best time to harvest because it when the plant contains the most nutrients. Use a small shovel to pull up the whole root.

To eat dandelion roots, wash them, cut into ½-inch pieces and place them on a large baking pan in the oven at 200 degrees fahrenheit. Roast them for about 2 ½ hours, stirring them a bit every ½ hour. When they turn golden brown, remove them from the oven, cool them and grind them in a coffee grinder. Brew the roots to just as you would coffee grounds. Dandelion coffee has been known to be a tonic for liver problems and has been used as a laxative.
