Activating your metabolism can be challenging for some as there is a lot of information regarding diet and nutrition that can be misleading or false. With all of the diet fads advertised by companies claiming that you will get the beach body of your dreams in 10 days, it is hard to know what to believe.
Sometimes it is best to stick to the basics and eat natural foods that you can pick up at your local grocery store. Making things as simple as possible can be the easiest and most efficient solution to getting a lean body! With that being said, I will give you 5 fat burning foods to consider next time you are at the grocery store.
Fat Burning Food #1: Salmon
It baffles me how people can be so misled by a nutrition label or see the words “0 Fat” and the food item immediately migrates from the shelf to their shopping cart. These are some of the deceptive tricks companies use that have caused you to suck at losing weight for so long.
This is the reason why I decided to expose 7 foods that you thought were healthy but in reality, they have been a road block that has prevented you from reaching fat loss success.
Here are the 7 foods:
Many people think that they are following their diet program to the letter. However, the way that they prepare their food is what sabotages their efforts without them even realizing it.
Because I want to make sure that you get the results YOU DESERVE, I am including here the way in which you should be preparing your food. If you stick to these bullet points below, I guarantee you that you will be well on your way to Fat Extinction!
As I was walking around the grocery store the other day I saw several food labels that said fat free, sugar free, reduced calories and 97% fat free. While someone may initially think they are making a good choice, they may be wrong!
If you take a further look and really scrutinize the nutrition facts on the back of the label, you will begin to notice that things are not as great as they seem. So now that you understand that more investigation needs to be done with regards to these deceptive labels, I will give you some tips to look out for the next time you go shopping!
As I do realize it is not easy for everyone to prepare meals or eat at certain times of the day due to their schedules, this does not mean that fast food is your enemy. As a matter of fact, if you are able to make the right macronutrient choices when eating at fast food places, you will be just fine and actually have no problem achieving your fat loss goals!
Before I reveal to you some good options when eating at fast food locations or restaurants, always try to follow these basic principles:
With so many people having busy schedules it is hard to get a good healthy, nutritious snack in while working. This is the reason I decided to write this article. Two of the best food choices to keep you from breaking your diet are Bananas and Apples. They are portable, nutritious and as long as they are used sparingly and within the parameters specified by your fat loss program, you will not have any issues.
The best part about these foods is that they can be taken with you and do not require special attention such as heating or storing in a refrigerator.
Protein bars have been promoted highly in magazines for their great taste and excellent sources of protein, but in reality do they give you the benefits that you truly need?
Most protein bars typically have 20-30 grams of protein and are usually either low or moderately high in carbs ranging anywhere from 20 to 40 grams of carbs per bar. Most protein bars have glycerin in them which is most commonly known as sugar alcohols. Sugar alcohols are not really carbs. If you notice, many protein bar labels always show a net carb count. Net carbs are those that prompt the body to release insulin.
One of the main reasons I was able to lose 30 lbs in 3 months was because I did not get tired of 3 delicious fat burning meals. You may wonder how in the heck can 3 meals help you burn fat and be delicious at the same time.
Well, the answer is simple when you stop and see what these meals were. I applied a little known trick to my daily diet and before I knew it, presto I had lost my stomach fat and had a chiseled mid section.
Enough about how great of results these meals have given me, let’s look at what they are and how they can do the same for you as they did for me.
