Top 6 Fat Burning Foods- No Need for the Fat Burning Pills

I am always trying to fire up my metabolism and switch up what I eat to shock my body and Burn Fat!

My Favorite is and always will be the Abs Diet, But these food are great too (and very similar to my abs diet!)

Health Magazine has great tips and recipes!

Want to Boost your metabolism: Fuel your body with these foods!

  1. Whole Grains: Your body burns twice as many calories breaking down whole foods (especially those rich in fiber such as oatmeal and brown rice) than processed foods.
  2. Lean Meats: Protein has a high thermogenic effect: You burn about 30% of the calories the food contains during digestion (so a 300-calorie chicken breast requires about 90 calories to break it down). for a list of lean meats click here.
