FAST FACTS: MELT STUBBORN FAT WITH THESE FOODS!
Chili peppers sure do have a kick! And it’s a compound called “capsaicin” that actually gives them their zip and heats up the body internally to help you burn off those excess calories. So if you want to melt extra fat away, food experts recommend adding freshly chopped, dry, pepper spices like cayenne and red chilies, and hot sauces to your soups, sauces, and rice dishes.
Drinking green tea is often credited for helping people lose weight thanks to a compound within called EGCG, which temporarily speeds metabolism. So brew a pot and sip it hot or put it in the fridge for a cold glass of slimming, green iced tea!
There’s good reason why so many diets encourage folks to eat grapefruit on their list of consumable foods—just a half of the juicy fruit helps dissolve fat and cholesterol and fights arteriosclerosis (hardening of the arteries). A medium-sized grapefruit only contains 74 calories; while providing 15 grams of pectin fiber, loads of vitamin C and potassium, and absolutely zero fat and sodium.
Lean Turkey or Chicken
Lean protein has a high thermogenic effect, which means it will continue to burn calories during digestion. Mix that bonus with the lean goodness of a 300calorie chicken or turkey breast and you will win as far as calories consumed vs. calories burned!
