7 Fat Burning Tips That You’ve Never Heard Of Before
Losing weight and burning fat is never an easy journey; Even though you eat healthy and workout often, sometimes you need some extra help when you hit a roadblock in your weight loss journey. Here are seven fat burning tips you might have never heard yet:
You’ve probably heard about the amazing benefits that coconut oil has, but despite its high fat content coconut oil is also a great food for burning fat.
Coconut oil contains a fat that your body can use as energy source immediately and its properties give it a similar effect to protein.
For the best fat loss results replace your usual cooking oil with coconut oil and eat a teaspoon with every meal.
Butter with Coffee
Sound crazy, right? Dave Asprey, the creator of “bulletproof coffee”, claims that adding two tablespoons of butter in your morning coffee can give you 6 hours of energy and burns fat all day.
Nutritionists don’t agree with Dave. Replacing a healthy diet with a “bulletproof coffee” could lead to lack of nutrients in your diet, and potentially increase your cholesterol levels, but the “bulletproof coffee” advocates clam it’s better to fuel your body with fat than carbohydrates.
Barley for Breakfast
Researchers have found that eating barley for breakfast might keep your blood sugar levels even, preventing that awful sugar and fat cravings.
If you want to add barley to your diet, try to find the minimally processed version of it. Whole hulled barley is much better then pearled barley and has twice the fiber. Like other oats, it is a carbohydrate with a low GI that makes it a perfect alternative for your morning breakfast.
Marmite is a completely fat free food and has a unique mix of fiber and protein that will make you feel fuller for longer. It’s also high in Vitamin B3 which will boost your immune system.
100 grams of Marmite has 28 grams of protein, but be aware: spread only a thin layer on toast, because Marmite has high levels of salt.
Beef Up Your Lunch Salad
One of the most common misstates we make is to eat a vegetable salad for lunch with little or no dressing, because we are starving by mid-afternoon.
A salad is always a great choice, but adding some protein and a little fat will make you feel full longer. Top your greens with a piece of chicken breast and two tablespoons of light salad dressing and your salad will get you through the 3 p.m. hunger without hitting the vending machine.
Downsize Your Dinnerware
The larger your plate is, the more likely you’ll put more on it. Serving your meals in smaller plates will help you eat less.
But don’t throw out those dinner plates. Use the smaller ones to server dinner and use the dinner plates for salads.
Wear Your Skinny Jeans on Every Friday
Find the tightest pants you have in your closet (but not impossible to zip) and every Friday morning put them on. Why Friday? It’s very difficult to stay on diets during the weekend. The Friday morning try-on will keep you motivated to watch your diet.
