Reading time: 4 minutes.
Do you know what fat-burning foods are? We can easily identify them by dividing them into three groups:
- Those in which our body burns more calories to digest them than they contain themselves.
- Those rich in fiber or proteins that generate a feeling of satiety.
- Those with active ingredients that accelerate our metabolism.
And what are these foods?
Peppers contain substances that can burn fat by speeding up the metabolism. Another advantage of peppers is that they are low in calories.
Thanks to its pectins, apples help normalize cholesterol, triglyceride and blood sugar levels, which has an impact on fat storage. In the digestive system, pectin plays an active role in the elimination of excess fat through intestinal transit.
Also diuretic, this caffeine-rich drink stimulates the metabolism and is a true ally for weight loss as it naturally activates fat burning!
Rich in fiber and micronutrients, broccoli provides less energy (25 calories/100 g) than it needs to be digested.
Lemon is a detoxifying food par excellence. It contains citric acid, which stimulates the production of bile and digestive enzymes and thus facilitates the digestion, reuse and elimination of fats after their metabolization. Prepare your own detox drink by putting lemon pieces in your water bottle and drink it throughout the day!
In the vegetable category, eggplant is undoubtedly the best fat-burning food. It promotes weight loss by absorbing fat from the body. Very rich in fiber and pectin, eggplants are also very effective in making you feel full.
