3 TRAIL SNACKS THAT REV RESULTS
Hiking can rev fat burn and balance slimming hormones— and packing these munchies delivers more slim-quick perks
Almonds melt belly fat
The monounsaturated fats in these nuts prod muscle cells to preferentially burn visceral fat (the dangerous fat that surrounds the organs), helping to shrink belly inches 56 percent faster.
Dark chocolate blocks fat storage
Powerful polyphenols in this sweet treat prevent carbs and fat from being absorbed into the bloodstream and stored as fat—an effect that reduces weight gain by 72 percent.
Raisins boost energy
The resveratrol in these sweet bites switches on an enzyme that revs the activity of cells’ energy production engines, increasing pep by as much as 180 percent.
The snack mix that delivers all three
In a bag, combine 1⁄4 cup of almonds, 1⁄ cup of dark chocolate
8 chunks and 1⁄ cup of raisins.
