  • Wondering Which Foods Can Help You Turn Your Body into a Fat Burning Furnace?

    The majority of people nowadays are on a mission to lose weight fast and burn fat, whether it be a substantial amount, or only a couple of pounds. As an Orlando based medical clinic, we advise our patients to know the truth about losing weight, what works and what doesn’t. The problem is, we don’t know how. So we search the web for answers, and what comes up? Harmful drugs, life threatening surgeries and crazy diets. The majority of these weight loss methods are more destructive to your body than anything.

    We want to shed some light on this situation. The truth is, you don’t need surgery or drugs to lose weight. All you need is a healthy diet with the right foods. Did you know that eating certain foods actually causes you to lose weight? It’s true! We’re going to share with you, 5 foods that will help you shed pounds.

    This is our list of fat burning foods

    The food that can help you can go to work on that unwanted Belly Fat is widely available.

    Grapefruit: You’ve probably heard of the benefits of grapefruit before, but by now you’ve written them off as just another “fad diet”. Don’t be too quick to judge! Eating half of a grapefruit before each meal has actualbeen proven to cause weight loss. This fruit lowers your insulin levels which leads to weight loss. Also, because this fruit is 90% water and packed with protein, it will fill you up and cause you to eat less. If you decide to change nothing about your lifestyle, except that you eat a half of a grapefruit before each meal, it is almost guaranteed that you will lose a pound a week.

    Green Tea: This is a great aid in stomach fat loss. Studies have shown that 5 cups of green tea will not only hydrate you like water, but the antioxidants present in green tea will help you burn fat and calories. Drinking green tea can help you lose twice as much weight in one day.

    Eggs: High cholesterol has practically become synonymous with eggs, but lets not completely discredit them. It turns out, eggs are great for weight loss! In a study of women’s eating patterns and weight loss, those who began their morning with eggs ate substantially less throughout the day than those who began with a bagel because they felt full. Along with eating less, woman who ate eggs also lost twice as much weight as the others. The study also revealed that those who ate eggs did NOT have higher bad cholesterol or lower good cholesterol than those who had bagels.

    Dark Chocolate: Believe it or not, you don’t have to give up your chocolate! What most people don’t know, is that have a little bit of dark chocolate here and there throughout the day will actually make you feel full and eat less during meals. Also, chocolate is full of the healthy fat called MUFAs. What MUFAs do is speed up your metabolism to burn fat and calories.

    Oranges: We tend to take these little fruits for granted but the truth is, oranges are one of the most filling fruits. Because they provide your body with a large dose of fiber, these fruits cause you to feel full for a longer period of time.  As a result, we tend to eat much less at our next meal.

    Fat Burning Drinks

    While we have not been able to compile a complete list, we are aware of one specific drink that at the time of this writing is one of the only negative calorie drinks / sodas on the market. Celsius claims to have scientific proof that because of its thermogenic properties, it is one of the only healthy fat loss fuels on the market. While we don’t officially endorse the product for weight loss because we encourage our patients to drink water, Celsius does  have many celebrity endorsements which stand on their own, and we like the beverage.
