People are always asking “How can I get a six-pack?” My usual response is “through hard work.” However here are a few tips to help along the way
Four Surprising Fat-Burning Foods
When it comes to burning fat, not all foods are created equally. While it’s common knowledge that we should eat more vegetables, cut back on sugar, and avoid eating fast food to lose weight – simply adding the following surprising fat-burners to your diet may also help speed-up your weight loss. Proven to speed fat loss, they are an excellent addition to any healthy weight loss program. Of course, if you suffer from any medical condition or allergy you should consult with your doctor or a nutritionist before making any dietary changes.
According to Harvard research, eating three ounces of nuts daily helps people lose one inch of fat from their waistline per month. The scientists at Harvard also found that people who eat three ounces of nuts daily were more likely to keep the fat off. Choose raw nuts that are kept refrigerated to prevent the healthy fats they contain from going rancid. And of course you should avoid salted nuts.
2. Fish and Seafood:
Recent research shows that when you eat fish or seafood, you'll stay full for two hours longer than you normally would. Fish and seafood increase the body's production of a hormone called Leptin that shuts down hunger pangs between meals.
Loaded with healthy Omega 9 fatty acids, the same fats found in olive oil, olives, and macadamia nuts. Avocado's Omega 9's speed the conversion of fat into energy and boost the rate of metabolism.
Coconut is rich with medium chain triglycerides (MCFAs) which according to some experts, increase the liver's rate of metabolism by up to 30%. They also help keep you full so you're less likely to snack on junk food. Coconut oil frequently aids the functioning of the thyroid gland. Coconut oil, coconut milk (not the low fat variety), coconut flour, and shredded (unsweetened) coconut all contain this important fat.
