fit couple absBurn fat with these fat burning foods.

1. Almonds (no salt) 

Almonds contain protein, calcium, vitamin E, and monounsaturated fat.  Monounsaturated fat is a “good fat” that your body needs for efficient absorption of vitamin D3 and can help regulate your cholesterol.  Another benefit of Almonds is they are an appetite suppressant or high satiety making you feel full with only one serving they will keep you from overindulging on all of the other junk in your cabinets.  Replace potato chips and Doritos with Almonds and you can put a big positive where there was once a negative.

2.  Coffee (black)  

I used to dump three packets of sugar and milk into my coffee. I learned to drink my coffee black so I could shave a few seconds off of my morning routine.  As a side effect, I made it just a little healthier.  Black coffee has no calories, and takes more energy for your body to process coffee than the drink contains, so the caffeine boosts your metabolism.  Everything in moderation and make sure you use kangen water to make your java.

3.  Cranberries       

Cranberries are a fruit that is low in sugar (good news diabetics) and is ripe with antioxidants.  These scavenge up the free radicals in your blood, which in a nutshell means they keep the bad stuff from piling up in your fat tissue.  You can get them either as a berry, a juice, or cranberry extract pills.  As a side note, they help to maintain urinary tract health, especially for women.

4.  Olive Oil  

Huh?  An oil that’s good for you?  Yes.  Olive oil is loaded with monounsaturated fats.  When used instead of Canola Oil or Vegetable Oil you can save yourself a good deal of bad fats and save yourself an hour on the treadmill.  I personally think Olive Oil is a much better taste as well.  Perhaps I spent too much time at sea and watch too much Popeye.  Which brings me to my next food.

5.  Organic Spinach  

Organic Spinach will help you burn fat by boosting your metabolism.  It will also help lower your cholesterol and is an excellent source of Iron and Vitamin C.  Spinach also contains insoluble fiber which gives you a full feeling and will help to clean out the intestines improving their function and also shedding some weight at the same time.

6.  Organic Skim Milk  

If you have access to Rice or Almond milk I would choose it over cow's milk unless you can find raw milk. Talk about an easy way to eliminate some fat from your diet.  Why not trade in that whole milk for skim milk?  I was raised on skim milk and now I can’t stand the taste of regular.  It has calcium and protein which will aid in fat burning.  The real benefit here comes from eliminating the calories you would otherwise take in from regular milk.

7.  Organic Apples  

High in fiber and for some reason which I can’t understand, apples make you feel full.  Keep some apples in your house to replace some fatty snacks that you would eat by the box before you feel full, they have more than 4 grams of fructose "sugar" per serving so other than an occasional breakfast you should know too much of a good thing can be fattening.

8. Organic Carrots  

One of my favorite vegetables (in the raw form only) Carrots are a fat burner that contain fiber, beta-carotene, and vitamins C, B1, and B2.  I never could get used to cooked carrots, but then again, the raw ones are better for you anyway.  Keep a bag of Baby Carrots in your fridge for both meals and snacks-hint the whole carrots are usually 1/3 the price of the baby carrots

 9.  Cayenne Pepper  

That burning feeling isn’t just coming from your stomach.  Cayenne Pepper boosts your bodies thermogenic processes.  It simply makes you hotter.   That heat is coming from your energy stores i.e. your fat.  If you have no taste for spicy food, then try Cayenne pills.  This will eliminate the taste while you keep the benefit.  Timing is everything of course.  I once took three Cayenne Pepper pills before jogging three miles. To say my entire body felt like the surface of the sun would be an understatement.
None of these are a replacement for exercise, but you should know that your diet will make up close to 75% of your success in maintaining a healthy weight.  As usual, a consistent but modest exercise routine is key.  But these foods will all help you to look better and have more energy to enjoy life.
10. Organic green tea
Fresh tea leaf comes unusually rich in powerful antioxidants called polyphenols which may constitute up to 30% of the dry leaf weight. So, when you drink a cup of tea, you're basically drinking a solution of tea polyphenols. In fresh, unfermented tea leaves, polyphenols exist as a series of chemicals called catechins.

Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) happens to be the most powerful catechin found in tea. In fact, one study indicates that EGCG is 25-100 times more potent than antioxidant vitamins C and E. This study also reported that just one cup of green tea has antioxidant effects greater than a serving of broccoli, spinach, carrots, or strawberries.
With USDA Certified Organic Royal Matcha Green Tea, you could receive over 100 times the EGCG provided from regular brewed green tea!  
With such extremely high antioxidant activity, it's logical to conclude that Matcha green tea may be highly beneficial in protecting your body from health concerns posed by free radicals. Free radicals are highly reactive molecules and fragments of molecules that may impact your body at the cellular level.  

That's why antioxidants provide support for your hardworking immune and cardiovascular systems. Widely acclaimed for overall health-promotion, catechins (EGCG) When ECGC is combined with caffeine (found naturally in tea or as an additive), the effect is said to raise the potential for fat burning effect.11. Whole Grains  

Whole Grains  There are six I recommend: Wheat germ, Quinoa, Steel Cut Oats, Flax, Millet, Barley. All grains start life as whole grain, meaning that they have not had their bran and germ removed. A process that removes quite a bit of fiber and other nutrients. Among many health benefits, a high-fiber diet also tends to make a meal more filling , which helps when you are cutting calories. Whole grains contain important antioxidant, minerals, B vitamin and fiber as well as complex carbs, protein, and trace amounts of healthy fats. Whole grains offer us virtually everything we need for a balanced nutrition.
