6 of the Best Fat-Burning Foods

Need a nutritional boost to help you eliminate calories? Here are six impressive fat-burning foods from the FizzUp trainer that you should eat the next time hunger strikes.

Fat-burning foods #1: Apples

Got the munchies? Have an apple, the perfect appetite suppressant. The pectin it contains swells when it comes into contact with the water in your stomach so you immediately feel satisfied. Pectin also traps fat in your stomach. It’s really low in calories but has enough sugar to please anyone with a sweet tooth.

High in fiber and vitamins, it will give you your fill of energy. Apples are convenient and you can take them anywhere, just like your FizzUp app.

Fat-burning foods #2: Eggplants (aka aubergines)

Besides lowering your cholesterol levels, eggplants contain a good amount of magnesium, iron, sodium and potassium, which are essential nutrients for healthy nervous and cardiovascular system function. The fiber it contains makes it possible to rid your body of toxins and effectively burn fat. It acts as a diuretic and an appetite suppressant. Extremely low in calories, it prevents water retention and stimulates digestion. Say goodbye to constipation. You’ll effectively lose weight and see your blood sugar levels drop significantly.

Fat-burning foods #3: Bell peppers (aka peppers or capsicums)

Red, green or yellow, bell peppers may come in different colors but have the same fat-burning properties. High in fiber and antioxidants, you can eat them cooked or raw.

They’re high in vitamin C and help your body eliminate fat before it even has time to be absorbed. Bell peppers are also one of the best foods to fight against cellulite.

Fat-burning foods #4: Oat bran

Oat bran contains soluble and insoluble fiber that’s capable of trapping ingested fat. It fills you up and ensures easy digestion. This regulates your appetite naturally so you don’t feel the need to eat large amounts of food. Enjoy its benefits by mixing oat bran into your yogurt or sprinkling your meals with a tablespoon.

Fat-burning foods #5: Pineapples

Pineapple is a delicious fruit that contains 10% sugar and 90% water. Don’t throw away the stem because it contains a hidden fat-burning gem: the enzyme bromelain. It can break up cellulite tissue to make it easier for you to eliminate fat.

To get rid of fat cells, there’s nothing like it! Enjoy fresh pineapple for breakfast or dessert.

Fat-burning foods #6: Lemons

Consuming lemon juice on an empty stomach in the morning purifies the body and helps get it going. It stimulates bile production, which makes digestion easier. Citric acid is really great for your stomach because it helps destroy and eliminate fat and proteins. Go on a one-month lemon juice regimen to see the results.

Pairing these fat-burning foods with regular physical activity is part of a winning strategy to lose weight. What are you waiting for? Get into healthy nutritional habits now. More tips are available with FizzUp Nutrition.
