Fat Burning Food

Fat burning food used in a carefully constructed meal plan can help you to eliminate fat and get lean and healthy. Let me tell you one thing, if you just go ahead and eat random so called fat-burning-foods without having a carefully thought out diet plan you are setting yourself up for failure.

Burning fat foods has to be included in your diet the right way in order for you to benefit from it. These guidelines will help you to make a meal plan that will scorch away your fat, leaving you lean and sexy. Here’s how:

Plate contents

This is how the contents of your plate should look like to help lower your fat percentage:

* Half your plate – Half of your plate should consists of fruit, veggies or salad.
* A quarter – A quarter should be lean protein, like chicken, fish or lean red meat.
* The other quarter – Should be low GI, healthy carbs like whole-wheat products, brown rice and sweet and baby potatoes.

Break your meals into 6 smaller portions

Once you know how your plate contents should look like, take that amount of food and make the portion sizes slightly smaller. Go ahead and have 6 such small meals throughout the day. This will keep you fuller while also boosting your metabolism and helping you lose more weight and fat – just make sure that those meals are healthy.

Stick to the healthy fats

Don’t avoid fats altogether – only the unhealthy ones (saturated and trans fatty acids). Stick to healthy fats like avos, olives, nuts, fatty fish, and olive and avo oil – they will keep you fuller for longer.

Stick to fat free dairy products

If you switch from low fat milk products to fat free ones, you can save up to 4% of fat. So make the switch and enjoy all your dairy products fat free.

Include fat burning wonder foods in your meals

These are the wonder foods that you should include in your diet on a regular basis:

* Chilies – Adding chilies to your meals will help you to eat less
* Cinnamon – Cinnamon helps you to control your cravings

Together with your meals you should also include fat burning foods as snacks – just make it the low calorie and fat ones like: celery sticks, carrots, and cucumbers, whole-wheat crackers and fat free yogurt. There are lots more food that will all help you burn fat if you include them the right way.
