You ever hear the expression, “You are what you eat”? In today’s society, especially here in the U.S., most people are on a ‘fast-food’ diet; thus, consuming McDonalds and other fast food restaurants like they are going out style.
And what is the result of this? People becoming obese and overweight at alarming rates! In case you still haven’t made the correlation, let me put like this: If you constantly eat crap, you will look & feel like crap.
Putting junk food in your body on a daily basis is like using low-grade fuel for a new 2014 Maserati; It may work short-term, but it will eventually breakdown.
If you want to start looking & feeling like a new luxury car, then eat fat-burning foods that will boost your metabolism.
Let’s look at 5 fat-burning foods that will get your engine (i.e. your metabolism) running as smoothly as a Rolls Royce Phantom:
Grass-Fed lean meats
One way to get your metabolism churning is to include lean meats (90% or more fat-free) on your plate. Chicken, turkey and beef all provide the powerful nutrient that greatly aids in fat loss: protein.
The human body needs as twice the amount of energy to breakdown protein, in comparison to carbs and fats. So your body burns 2x as many calories when consuming lean meats. Instead of worrying about how much protein to consume, just make sure a lean meat is on your plate every meal.
Organic whole Milk

So what does that mean? That means that your metabolism will act more efficiently when high-fat dairy options (especially milk) is included within your daily eating habits.
Almonds & other nuts
Walnuts, peanuts, almonds, cashews, hazelnuts are great for weight loss. Due to nuts high fiber content, it makes weight maintenance (and fat loss) easier to accomplish.
A research study discovered that people who consumed a nut-rich diet for several years experienced better fat loss results than people who mainly ate fruits and vegetables.
While more studies are needed to conclude that nuts are better than fruits and vegetables in terms of fat loss, this illustrates their effectiveness if included in your daily diet.
