The 4 BASIC Fat Loss Foods You MUST Eat
By Kevin DiDonato MS, CSCS, CES
A typical question from people trying to lose weight is: What are the BEST foods for belly fat loss?
And when you are struggling to lose weight, you search even harder for the best, most efficient foods that will help you not only burn fat, but also keep the weight off.
Now, there are plenty of foods that are necessary for you to eat if you want to lose weight.
Things like avocados, olive oil, and omega-3 fats, are all common foods that you may think of.
However, here are four basic foods that you need in order to keep your metabolism stoked, burn even greater amounts of fat, and finally keep the weight off!
The Four Basics for Healthy Fat Loss
Now, before we get into the best fat loss foods, you need to first understand one vital piece of information: no matter what foods you eat…
Or how much exercise you do…
Or how many crunches you do…
There is no way, and I mean NO way, to only focus on fat loss from just your belly, arms, thighs, or butt!
Your body is just not designed that way!
All weight loss programs, no matter what, target FAT that is everywhere on your body, and not just your TROUBLE areas!
In fact, sometimes the fat around your stomach is the last place to go!
Now, don’t get discouraged!
If you include these four food groups into your normal nutrition plan, then chances are you will lose a greater amount of weight – and FAT!
So what are they?
The FOUR Basic Foods for Fat Loss
1. Low-Fat and Low-Calorie Vegetables
It’s true that low-fat and low-calorie foods may help you lose weight.
And including vegetables into your daily meal plan is a must if you’re looking to boost fat loss and your overall weight loss.
Vegetables are full of appetite-suppressing fiber, which also may slow the absorption of nutrients, therefore leading to better blood sugar control.
And, they are full of vitamins and minerals that are necessary for the cells in your body to function!
So go ahead, load your plate up with vegetables in order to satisfy your appetite, and provide your body with the right fat-fighting nutrients.
2. Fat-fighting Fruits
Fruit is full of vitamins, minerals, and WATER, which could make it a perfect fat-fighting food.
And similar to vegetables, they may be both low in calories and fat, making it a perfect option for your mid-morning or late afternoon snack!
They too are full of fiber, therefore when you eat a fruit (or vegetable) with lots of fiber, you may find yourself fuller and more satisfied compared to a processed food snack.
3. Lean, grass-fed (or wild-caught) Lean Proteins
Protein is a perfect way to satisfy your appetite, boost your metabolism, and burn fat in the process.
First, digesting protein may increase your metabolism, simply because it takes more calories to break down that protein source.
Secondly, protein has been linked to better overall meal satisfaction – which could prevent you from overeating.
Third, protein is a great way to provide your body with essential amino acids to build and maintain your lean muscle mass.
Altogether, protein is a necessary nutrient in any weight loss plan!
4. Power-packed Nuts
Now, nuts are higher in calories and fat than any of the options above.
However, nuts are full of monounsaturated fats, which may contribute to the fat burning process.
Plus, this type of fat is usually not stored – but instead used by your body.
Nuts also contain plenty of protein and fiber, which could help to suppress your appetite and leave you feeling fuller, for longer periods of time!
The Right Mix
In order to successfully burn fat and keep it off, you need to have the right nutrients, exercise program, and stress reduction therapies in place if you want to give your body a chance to burn fat.
But, if you include these four basic nutrients, then you may find yourself burning fat faster, giving you a lean, toned, and sexy look for years to come.
And, if you’re serious about losing weight and getting started on the right foot, then this step may be for you:
