FAT BURNING SECRETS: SECRET #1: EAT FAT BURNING FOODS

 All foods can cause fat creation, but certain foods actually help burn fat. Some foods

have minerals or vitamins that raise metabolism and act as virtual fat burners. There are

negative calorie foods with low calories that burn extra calories during digestion. Other

foods, even eaten in small quantities, deliver a feeling of fullness with very little calories.

Sticking to the right whole foods will drastically reduce the fat profile of your body.

By eating these fat burning foods at the right time, in the correct amount, the body fat

profile starts to reduce. Add in foods that lower the likelihood of fat depositing in your

body for an extra boost. Here is a list of everyday foods that double as secret fat

burners. 



Poultry

Poultry such as chicken has special assets that increase the body’s metabolic rate,

helping you melt extra fat away. Chicken is low in fat and carbohydrates with a good

protein profile. Proteins require a lot of energy to digest, and more energy for proteins

to be stored as fat. It is also a great source of iron, zinc, and niacin. For best results,

remove the skin from poultry before eating to avoid excess fat. 



Salmon & Tuna

Salmon and tuna are good sources of protein that provides the body with healthy fats

from omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. Both meaty fish, while satisfying, are also low in

calories and unhealthy saturated fat. Eating salmon positively effects leptin, the

hormone responsible for burning and storing calories. High leptin levels cause the body

to store fat. Salmon and tuna reduce leptin, giving your metabolism the boost it needs

to burn calories.



Citrus Fruits

Citrus fruit hikes up the metabolism while supplying a big dose of vitamin C, a chemical

used in the process of fat burning. Citrus fruits are ranked as the best fat burning foods

you can eat. Oranges, grapefruit, apples and even tomatoes share these fat burning

qualities. With the large variety, mix several varieties to for different flavors and taste.

Citrus fruit effectively burns fat around the hips and waist. 



Apples

An apple a day keeps the fat away. Apples contain a substance called pectin that

restricts the cells from absorbing fat and assists water absorption from food. This also

helps push fat deposits from the body. The antioxidants in apples may also reduce

excess belly fat from metabolic syndrome. Apples have a high level of soluble fiber that

helps you control hunger pain.




Berries

Strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, cherries – take your pick. Fruits as a

whole are packed with vitamins and minerals. They are low on calories and high in water

compared to refined foods. Excellent sources of fiber, berries boost the metabolism,

breaking down food and fats. Naturally sweet and delicious, a handful of berries will

keep you feeling fuller longer and help eliminate the craving for sugary glasses of

artificially flavored, empty calories.




Oatmeal

A large portion of oats calorie profile is soluble fiber. Soluble fiber helps control blood

sugar and helps you feel fuller longer. Oatmeal also lowers the risk of heart disease and

lowering cholesterol. Choose old fashioned or steel cut oatmeal and eat with fresh fruit.

Make sure to monitor your serving sizes during diet phases carefully. 



Vegetables

Most vegetables (except for potatoes, yams and sweet potatoes) maintain low calories,

yet contain essential vitamins and minerals that improve the body's metabolism.

Veggies such as spinach, broccoli, cabbage, carrots and artichokes contain no fat and

very low carbohydrate levels. In fact, they aid in fat burning since your body uses more

calories to digest vegetables than they produce. The extra calories needed to break

down food are taken from body fat reserves. For example, one serving of Brussels

sprouts has 50 calories, but the body needs 75 calories to digest. That’s 25 calories of

body fat burned just for eating your Brussels sprouts.




Beans

Beans are not only full of minerals; they are also low in calories and rich in amino acids.

The amino acids in lentils help decrease body fat while helping build muscles, and

maintain stable blood sugar. In addition, they are excellent sources of dietary fiber

keeping you satiated longer, reducing the urge to overeat.




Eggs

Eggs, one of the most nutrient dense foods, are a natural superfood. Their high levels of

protein rev up the metabolism and help you burn fat. Eggs are hands down one of the

best fat burning foods. Among other protein foods, eggs have the most abundant mix of

essential amino acids. Despite having low calories, they are packed with vitamin D,

vitamin B12, choline and selenium. It’s been proven eggs don’t contribute to bad

cholesterol, but does improve the good cholesterol needed for a healthy body. Eggs

have all the nutrients crucial for good health.




Almonds & Walnuts

Almond and walnuts are excellent sources of the healthy fats needed for the smooth

functioning of the body’s cell structure. Just an ounce of almonds has 12% of the daily

protein allowance and contains calcium and folic acid. Plus, the form of vitamin E in

walnuts is especially beneficial. A handful of nuts is a tasty, crunchy snack to satisfy

your hunger pains. 



Pine Nuts

According to scientist, pine nuts contain an abundance of healthy fatty acids. These fatty

acids help eliminate fat accumulation in the abdominals. Pine nuts also increase satiety

level hormones along with the benefits of fat reduction.

LOSE WEIGHT BY CHANGING HOW YOU COOK

Here are a few tips that will help you to lose those first ten pounds by simply changing how you prepare your food. How food is cooked has just as much to do with how healthy it is or is not.


Instead of frying in oil or fat, try baking those items instead. Baking does not require all the fat and oil that frying requires and your food is not soaking in those substances while it cooks.

Use non-stick frying pan spray so you don't use oil. Also, pans that are non-stick don't require as much, if any oil.

Boil vegetables instead of cooking them. You can also steam them, as this is probably the healthiest way to eat foods like cabbages, cauliflower, broccoli and carrots.

Be leery of no fat and low fat food items. There are many of these food items on the market, but they are not exactly healthy. Many of these food items use some sort of chemical or carbohydrate to sweeten them so that they taste better. However, the body turns these chemicals and carbohydrates into sugar in the body, which means they are still getting turned into fat.

Don't fall victim to crash diets. These are bad for you and do more harm than good in the long run. The short term results are typically that you will lose a few pounds, but once you give them up then everything comes back and your weight is worse the second time around. You cannot survive on a crash diet and you eventually get to a point where you have to give it up.

Chew your food at least 8 to 12 times whether it is liquid food, sweets or ice cream. This adds saliva to the food that digests the sugar. When food isn't eaten properly and is just swallowed, you fill your stomach with food that isn't ready to be digested and it then does not yield the health benefits that you need.

When you are cooking with oil, use a good Extra Virgin Olive Oil. It is more expensive than vegetable oil, but the health benefits are much better and it is worth the cost. Olive oil has been associated with a reduced risk in coronary heart disease and helps to increase the elasticity of the arterial walls which reduces the chance for heart attack and stroke

EATING WELL AND LOSING THE POUNDS

Okay, when most people think about losing weight and eating, they think about dieting. Well, unfortunately, all of the fad diets out there tend to cause people to gain weight. Why? Because they starve them to death and the person eventually breaks down and eats everything in sight because they are so darn hungry. They also deprive them of the foods that they love. This is not a way to lose weight, nor is it a way to live. You only cause yourself stress, which actually causes you to gain weight! So, in eating right there a few tips that you can follow each and every day and they're not going to deprive you of the foods that you love, but treat those foods as luxury items so you enjoy them that much more.


: Eat fresh fruit and vegetables that have high water content. These are foods like tomatoes, watermelons, cantaloupe, kiwi, grapes – you get the idea. All of those fresh and flavorful juicy fruits and veggies are good for you. These items contain about 90 to 95% water, so you can eat a lot of these and they will fill you up without adding on the pounds.



Eat fresh fruit instead of processed fruit. Anything that is processed as more sugar. Processed and canned fruits also do not have as much fiber as fresh fruits.

 Increase your fiber intake as much as you can. This usually means eating more fruits and veggies.

 Veggies are your friends when it comes to shedding pounds. There are tons of options here and you may even want to try some you haven't had in the past. The leafy green varieties are the best and you always want to work in a salad when you can. Salads are packed with nutrients as long as you don't pour too much dressing on and load them with too much cheese. The leafy greens also have a lot of natural water. 

 Be intelligent about what you eat. Don't eat just to eat. Animals eat on instinct; people eat when they know their body really needs it. Don't be an impulse eater. 

 Watch everything you consume from the food itself to what you top it with. Garnishments and condiments can sabotage a healthy meal because they are typically high in fat. 

Get a handle on the sweet tooth. This doesn't mean you can't have your sweets; just don't eat them as a meal. Always remember that these sweets end up adding to an area that you don't want them to add to. Don't deprive yourself either though, because then you'll eat twice as many as you should. 

: Set meal times and stick to them. Try to have your meals at specific times and eat them at that time. An eating pattern will help you to control what you eat and when you eat it. Also, it really is better to have 5 small meals a day rather than just one or two huge meals. Just eating once a day makes your body feel as though it is starving, which packs on fat instead of using it as fuel. Also, don't wait until your starving to eat. This only makes you overeat until you're stuffed.



 Eat only when you are hungry. Be sure to drink a glass of water first to determine if you really are hungry or if you are really thirsty. Many people have the tendency to eat when they see food. It doesn't mean they are hungry; they just want to eat it. Don't eat anything you're offered unless you really are hungry. If you feel you must eat it out of being polite, just nibble, don't have a meal. 

 Try not to snack between meals, but if you must have a snack make sure it is a healthy one. If you travel a lot try to find healthy snacks and not junk food. 

 Veggies make great snacks. They can get you through the hunger pangs if you are having them. Carrots are great because they satisfy hunger and they are packed with nutrients.

 Counting calories is a good idea for those must have food items. If it is a packaged food item, then it will have the calories on the packaging. Be sure to pay attention to serving sizes in terms of calories as well. An Otis Spunkmeyer muffin is intended to be two servings, so you have to double the calories listed. This is where food producers get tricky and you can't fall in their trap. 



Work off the extra calories by the end of the week. If you feel you have splurged too much this week, be sure to get to the gym or go walking a little longer to work off those extra calories you have consumed.

 Stay away from all things fried. If it is breaded, it is better that it is baked. Fried foods are immersed in fat and oil. Even after the excess has oil has been drained away, there is still oil absorbed into the food item itself


 Don't skip meals. You should have, at the very least, three meals a day, but preferably five small meals. This will keep you from getting hungry during the day and overeating out of starvation. 

 Just like fruits, fresh vegetables are better than those that are canned. It is even better if you can eat your veggies raw. When you cook them, you cook away the nutrients. If you must cook them, try to boil them to the point that there is still some crispness to them. Also, don't soak them in butter. If you can buy organic and pesticide free veggies, that is even better.


 Don't eat more than one egg per day. It is best if you can reduce your egg intake to three a week. 

Chocolates should be treated as luxury items. Buy the good stuff and only eat them every once in awhile. If you really savor each morsel, you'll experience that much more joy in eating them and they will taste even better. 



: Eat foods from all of the food groups each day. This is a great way to ensure you are getting all the nutrients your body needs and it helps to ward off any diet deficiencies. Also, don't eat the same foods all the time. Experiment so that you don't get bored with same old diet. 


Try to eat breakfast within an hour of waking up. This is the best way to give your body the jump start it needs. Don't wait until you are really hungry. Breakfast is important, but you don't need to stuff yourself. The idea is that you're breaking the fast from not easting all night. 

Your diet should include all aspects of the food groups including carbohydrates. In fact, your diet needs to be about 50-55% carbs. Carbs are a great source of energy. Those diets that prohibit carbohydrates are actually harming you and only making you crave them that much more. Your diet should cause you to be deficient in anything. 

 Proteins should make up only 25-30% of your diet. Far too much emphasis is put on meat as the main part of your meal. In actuality, it should be considered more of a side dish rather than the main course. 

Fats should make up 15-20% of your meal. This is really all the fat your body needs. A lot of this is going to be in your diet in the form of cream, sugar and the like. 

 Eat more white meat than red meat. White meat includes chicken, fish and some other fowl. Red meat includes beef and pork.



 Try to go as vegetarian as you can. This really is a healthier lifestyle, even if you can't cut meat out completely. The more fruits and veggies you can eat the better. The more meat you cut out, the more fat you can cut out of your diet as well. However, protein is important, so be certain that your option allows you to maintain good protein levels.

 White bread is good, but high fiber multigrain breads are much better. These breads are another way to add more fiber to your diet and they also have a good protein level. 

 Pork does not assist in weight loss in any way. The less pork you eat, the better off you will be when trying to lose weight. Pork has a high fat content and includes food items such as bacon, ham and sausage. 

Limit your sugar intake as much as possible. If you must have sweetener in your coffee and tea, try to find an artificial sweetener that you don't mind the taste of. However, these things are not all that healthy either and should be limited as well. 

 Try grazing five to six times a day. These are those small meals we discussed earlier. Some people lose weight better when they never feel hungry and grazing on healthy food items can do this for you. Plus, it keeps your metabolism working, which will burn fat naturally. 



 Don't worry about cheating, but don't cheat for a meal. Eat sweets and your favorite cheat food for the flavor only. If you want dessert after dinner, share one with the whole family. You'll get the flavor, but not the pounds. 

 Watch your fat intake. Each fat gram is 9 calories. If you know your total calories then you can figure the amount of fat in those items. 

: Take it easy on the salt and try to cut what you use in half. Salt is one of the main causes of obesity. 

WEIGHT LOSS BEGINNING WITH WHAT YOU DRINK

First and foremost, people don't realize that what they drink is the first step in losing that first 10 pounds. In fact, most people don't know that when they feel hungry, they may actually be dehydrated and they are really thirsty, not hungry. Water is remarkable as well. Over 66% of your body weight is nothing but water. This is also why water plays an important role in weight control. 

TIP #1



Drink plenty of water. It is recommended that you drink 8 glasses per day, but that may take you some time to work up to. Your body needs a whole lot of water. Water doesn't just flush all the toxins out of your body, but it makes you feel better and healthier. When you drink a lot of water you just begin to feel fit and this is the motivation you need to lose weight.


 The best thing about water is you can drink as much as you want because it has no calories at all. When you're drinking a lot of water, you eat less as well because you won't feel as though you are starving to death. Remember, if you feel hungry, try drinking a glass of water first and you'll realize you were probably just dehydrated and not hungry at all.

The whole 8 glasses a day rule is really something you should strive for. The best way to do this and to measure your water intake is to buy a jug from the drug store or grocery store that is designed to hold exactly 8 glasses of water. These are great weight loss tools because you can fill them up, freeze them and as it melts throughout the day you have fresh and cold water. Or, if you don't mind your water room temperature you can drink it that way as well. All that matters is that you're getting in the water your body needs.


TIP #2


Start off your day with a fresh, clean glass of water. As soon as you get up in the morning, drink one down. This will help your body to get going because it won't be fighting through dehydration. Also, after you drink a glass of water you won't need to eat such a large breakfast. A glass of water wakes up all the digestive juices in your body and gets it well lubricated. You can always have your morning coffee or tea, but be sure to have a glass of water afterwards. Caffeine dehydrates you and you want to ward off dehydration.

TIP #3



Drink a glass of water before you sit down to eat. Water will naturally make you feel fuller so you don't have to eat as much food.

TIP #4:

 Have a glass of water while you eat as well. Take a drink after each bite and you will feel full more quickly so you can leave the table feeling satisfied without feeling bloated. Drinking water while you eat will also help your food to settle more quickly, which also helps you to feel full faster.

 TIP #5:



 Do your best to stay away from soda. All sodas are sweetened with lots of sugar. The more you can cut out of your diet the better. Also, diet soda is still soda. It may not have as much sugar, but it has other chemicals and components that are not good for your body either. If you drink a soda, counteract it with a glass of water. Remember, caffeine dehydrates you as well. Decaffeinated sodas still have caffeine in small amounts as well and just as much sugar, so they are not much healthier either.

 TIP #6: 

Fruit juice isn't as healthy as most people think either. Juice actually has a lot of sugar in it as well. If you are craving a glass of juice, drink fresh fruit juice instead of juice that has artificial flavors and coloring. It is even better if you can make your own fruit juice. Just be sure not to add too much sugar which adds to the calories. Instead of drink fruit juice, eat more fruit. Fruit provides your body with much needed fiber as well as vitamins. 

TIP #7:



 Go easy on the tea and coffee. They are pretty much harmless if you don't add a lot of cream and sugar to them. It is the cream and sugar that becomes fattening. Think of it this way, when you have a cup of coffee or tea with cream and two cubes of sugar, you are essentially eating a piece of chocolate cake every time. Now think of how many pieces of cake you are eating when you have a Venti Starbucks Latte – yikes. 

TIP #8:

 If you must have your tea and coffee, try to drink it black. Black tea or coffee actually has health benefits to it as long as you counteract the caffeine in your body with a nice big glass of water. Caffeine is also not good for you because it affects functions in your body, like your metabolism. Another type of tea that you can drink freely is green tea. Green tea has been used as a medicine in China for over 4,000 years. It aids the digestive system and can help ease an overly full stomach and it has been linked to a reduction in cancer risk.

 TIP #9:



 If you can say no to alcohol, then that is best. Alcohol beverages are not exactly good for you, although a glass of red wine does have heart benefits, most are just fattening. Beer is especially fattening. Cocktails are fattening depending on what they are made of. For instance, whiskey and Coke. The whiskey may not be fattening, but the Coke definitely is. Plus, after a few drinks most people get the munchies and when you're feeling a little inebriated and hungry you won't be able to make rational decisions regarding your diet and it's usually late at night, just before you pass out from a night of drinking, that you overeat. The overall combination is just not a good one. 

TIP #10:

 If you must have alcohol, try dry wine. Dry wine is better than your sweet wines, because sweet wines have more sugar! Dry wines have sugar, but most of it has been fermented away into alcohol and from a weight gaining perspective, dry is better. 

TIP #11

: Another word on coffee, that is not necessarily bad, but more interesting than anything. Some people have reported that when they drank black coffee before exercising, they lost more weight. There's no scientific proof to back this, but nutritionists believe it may be caused by the body being forced to depend on fat for fuel. Hey, it's worth trying if you can stand black coffee. Just remember to drink plenty of water during your exercise!

 TIP #12: 

Avoid drinking excessive amounts of coffee, as it desensitizes your body to the natural fat burning effects that caffeine has. One or two cups (if the day's really slow to get started) max.

5 Super Simple Weight Loss Tips



Weight loss is one of those subjects that everyone is always talking about. It seems you cant go anywhere without seeing or hearing some type of weight loss message. Stories of the dangers of not losing weight appear regularly on the nightly news. Retail outlets and the Internet both are full of weight loss books and products. Weight loss is discussed in medical centers and at schools and even in the work place. If you're trying to lose weight, here are a few tips to get you going.

Tip #1 Stop Talking About Weight Loss!

All that talk about how much you want to lose weight isn't going to make the weight come off. You've got to take action, starting right now. So take this simple advice: Stop moving your mouth and start moving your body! It wont take long to begin seeing the results.

Tip #2 Slow and Steady is Best

Slow and steady weight loss is better (and safer) than riding the dieting roller coaster. If you're looking for long-lasting weight loss results, aim to lose an average of about two pounds each week. In order to lose weight you've got to consume fewer calories than you burn. As a bonus, when you combine dieting with exercise, you'll be reducing your caloric intake and increasing your caloric burn rate at the same time.

Tip #3 Save Your Money

Don't spend your hard-earned money on the latest weight loss gimmicks. Pills, fad diets, hypnosis, and extreme surgical procedures are not the answer! These gimmicks wont slim you down, but they will fatten the bank accounts of those who promote them! Eating a nutritionally-balanced diet of fruits, vegetables, good fats and lean proteins will encourage weight loss faster than any miracle cure you can buy.

Tip #4 Weight Loss is a Way of Life

Unfortunately, the issue of weight is something that most people will struggle with throughout life. Excess processed foods and a sedentary lifestyle are the two biggest contributors to this constant struggle. If you want to lose weight and keep it off, you've got to change the way you think about food. It should be thought of as a source of fuel, not a passion. Successful weight loss really is about making lifestyle changes, including making the right food choices, and then sticking with those choices throughout life.

Tip #5 Weight Loss is More Than a Number

When you're dieting, don’t become a victim of the dreaded scale. When the numbers go down, happiness goes up. But when the numbers stay the same or go up, it is easy to give up and give in. Remember that even if your weight isn't changing as you would like, your body is. You'll be taking better care of your heart. You'll be lowering your cholesterol levels. You'll be sporting a leaner body and your clothes will begin fitting more comfortably. When you learn to find joy in these other benefits, you'll want to keep on being a loser!
