3 Surprising Foods to Eat to Burn Fat

Ever wish that it’s just easy to lose weight? Why not ask a Nutritionist to give you some recommendations on which foods to eat that help you to burn body fat? You might be surprised about what you may find out.

The list of fat burning foods in this article is not the usual boring recommendations that many health specialists say. Don’t expect to see the mention of fruits and vegetables because we already know that these are low fat healthy foods. Instead, be ready to get some shocking advice on which foods to eat for fat loss.

To Lose Weight, Eat These…

Egg Yolks

Are you kidding? We all know that egg yolks are rich in fat and cholesterol.  In the past, health experts have believed that egg yolks are not good for the body. But with recent studies, the contrary seems to be true. Eggs actually help increase good cholesterol levels. So, you don’t need to worry about the fat or cholesterol content of eggs.

Eggs are a powerhouse of omega-3s and other nutrients.  The yolk itself contains vitamins and minerals which you may not find in other foods. So, eat the egg yolks and not the egg whites only. Eating the entire egg actually helps in the better absorption of protein in egg whites.

So, how do eggs help you to lose weight? Studies have found that eggs rank high on the Satiety index, which means that eggs can extend your feeling of fullness. Also, because of the high protein content of eggs, they are potentially able to boost metabolism and burn more fat.

Grass-fed beef

Many of the available beef products on the market are from cattle that are grain fed. These have significantly reduced nutritional content including the omega-3s. If grass-fed beef is available, it is better to buy that.

Grass-fed beef are more nutritious. They contain more omega-3s, vitamins and minerals and less omega-6s.  This beef also have more conjugated linoleic acid. CLA is a healthy fat that has been found to enhance muscle development and fat burning.

Avocados

Avocado is another well-known fatty food but it is recognized for its treasure trove of nutrients. It is rich in antioxidants, fiber, vitamins and minerals. There is indeed no reason why we should not eat this creamy and flavorful food.

Just like eggs, eating avocadoes can help extend your satiety level and burn fat in your body. Also, avocadoes contain omega-9 fatty acids, which stimulate the liver cells to burn more fat. There is a report that mentioned eating half an avocado a day helps one to lose 4 pounds per month.

So, it is best to serve your meals with avocadoes. You can add or serve it with eggs, salads, sandwiches, etc.

Past health experts advise the intake of less fat in order to lose weight. It is a surprise that now this article mentions eating high fat foods – eggs, grass-fed beef and avocados – to help you lose weight. Try it for 30 days and see how it affects your weight.
