A Short List of Fat-Burning Foods to Eat

1 Comment
Thermogenic foods or fat burning foods can be a very big help for people who want to lose extra weight. In order to lose 1000 calories per day, there are many things which must be done, among them are to exercise for at least an hour and to watch what you eat and even limit it in some cases. So, if you are on a diet in hopes of losing weight just in time for the summer season, here is a list of fat burning foods. Make sure that you have these foods on your menu. With them you will be hitting two birds with one stone because you will be able to get your fill and lose fat at the same time. These foods offer the best of both worlds.

 

  • Milk. Milk has calcium which acts as metabolic trigger. The University of Tennessee conducted a study which found that people who consumed 1,300mg of calcium per day lost twice as much weight compared to those who did not.
  • Whole Grain Cereal. This is a fabulous source of fiber and complex carbohydrates. These substances help a person’s metabolism by keeping insulin levels in the blood low. Insulin spikes make your body think that it is time to store fat in your body.
  • Oats. This is another rich source of fiber. This can also help pump up your metabolism. Oatmeal is broken down slowly in the stomach and it does not cause the insulin level in the body to spike. Although oatmeal is typically eaten during breakfast, it can be eaten anytime of the day.
  • Cayenne Chiles. These are often ground into cayenne paper. According to a study, eating just one spicy meal a day makes your metabolism rate rise by up to 25%.
  • Green Tea. This contains a chemical called EGCG which causes your nervous system and you brain to run faster and burn more calories.

Actually, you can let natural foods like fruits and vegetables help you. Here’s the thing, everybody wants to have a fabulous body in time without overwhelming the health. Anyone who is obese or overweight will try all kinds of diet just to be slim and sexy. There are even some who result to crash diets thinking that they can attain their goals immediately. You cannot blame them if they spend lots of money trying to jump from one diet to another because they see no progress from the previous one. The good news is full body detox will not only give you what you really want, it also improves your health. The aim and goal of full body detox is to eliminate toxins inside the body that are harbored from the environment, and the food ingested so that the body can function perfectly.

Avoid. If you are planning to detoxify, please try to avoid highly sweetened foods, high fat foods, and dairy products like milk and egg. You must also avoid alcohol beverages and coffee while you are undergoing a detoxification process.

Taste. You can have any kinds of fruits and vegetables whether fresh or frozen. Fruits and vegetables are highly recommended in a detox diet. You can also substitute your white rice with brown rice since brown rice is good for digestion. Including fruits and vegetables in your dish can be the best meal replacement diet rather than eating pure meat and high caloric foods.

If you really want to achieve the sexy body that you have been dreaming for, then you should really consider changing your diet from being unhealthy to healthy.

How to Get Ready for the Lemon Detox Diet!

The lemon detox diet is a great way to eliminate toxins and shed a few quick pounds over the period of a one or two days as opposed to the weeks that other solutions require. Many people make the mistake of assuming that a liquid diet is an easy weight loss option – don’t be fooled! You will need all of the patience, dedication, and willpower that you can muster. But with a little preparation you can increase your chances for success!

Planning for the Perfect Detox Experience!

Mark your calendar for the days you plan on using for the lemon detox diet. This should usually be no more than three days. You will not be able to go to work nor do any kind of intensive activities so plan accordingly.

If this will be your first detox, ask a friend to stop in daily to check on you. Fluid losses can cause fatigue and dehydration, but even more serious, the stress could trigger the effects of a pre-existing condition that you may not have been aware of, like diabetes. Make sure to warn your buddy about the potential irritability that you will most likely develop from the effects of caffeine or sugar addiction withdrawal!

It is recommended that a dieter eases in to the detox by eating nothing but fruits, vegetables, and broth for three days prior to the beginning of the diet.  The ingredients for the lemonade diet plan should be purchased beforehand, except for the lemons, which should be fresh. Again, it may be wise to arrange for a friend to drop off fresh lemons, since a drive to the store could be out of the question when your body begins to expel toxins.

The only way to be successful at the lemon detox diet is to carefully research and follow the diet plan to the letter. If you know what to expect you can prepare yourself – then, nothing can hold you back!

Are Are Liquid Colloidal Minerals Really Superior To More Traditional Supplements?

Liquid colloidal minerals are touted as being superior to their more traditional counterparts, citing increased absorbability due to the fact that the minerals are already “pre digested” or broken down into small enough parts that very little has to be done to make them available for absorption. It is also claimed that absorption itself is increased due tot the fact that the minerals are ionized or charged, making them more bioavailable (available for your body to use).

 

Liquid colloidal minerals

Colloidal liquids are liquid mediums with tiny particles suspended throughout, like milk for example. The nutrients in colloidal minerals stay emulsified in liquid because they are so small that they don’t settle out. The charge on these small particles also keeps them from settling out as they attach themselves to water molecules.

 

Traditional minerals

Traditional (dry) supplements are often criticized for being hard to swallow, indigestible, and composed of certain forms of nutrients that the body cannot utilize (low bioavailability). While this is true in some of the lower quality and cheaper brands, there are many brands that provide a high level of bioavailble nutrients. Some tablets are difficult to digest because of coatings made for increased production speed and the tightly packed nature of these pills, but capsules allow for easy release of nutrients in a compact form The nutrients become readily available when the gel cap is dissolved.

 

Claims

So are the claims made by colloidal mineral manufacturers about increased absorption beyond what you get from a “dry” multivitamin/mineral pill true? The first assertion is that because of their small size the body can absorb more of the nutrient. The second assertion is that because of the particles are charged they allow other nutrients to be better absorbed by the digestive tract and the negative particles bind and remove toxins. There is little to no research to back these assertions up. As for the first assertion, while it is true that some tablets are hard to digest (see above paragraph), capsules and high quality tablets are designed to fully dissolve in the digestive system. The second claim may be partially theoretically correct in that negatively charged particles could bind with positively charged toxic metals like mercury or lead. The claim that the negative charge will aid in absorption of other nutrients is not correct, however.

 

Conclusion

Liquid colloidal mineral supplements do not seem to live up to their claims of superiority. While they may outperform cheaper, lower quality supplements, they do not outperform the high quality variety of more traditional supplements. They are also less durable and less portable. There are also some dangers that I neglected to mention in regards to colloidal minerals, but you can click the link to read more in depth about these.
