5 Foods For Faster Fat Loss

Whenever someone comes to me with new information they just read about, I always ask them for their source. Most of the time their source is from something or someone that has no credibility; meaning, no studies or scientific research backing up their claims. While this is not always the case, I encourage… no, I urge you to always dig deeper for the truth.

That’s my philosophy on life. There’s always going to be a thesis and an anti-thesis; it’s your job to use the information from both sides that works for YOU, in doing so you develop your very own synthesis.

Here at Shredfat inc we do our due diligence when digging deeper for the truth. Not only is our information backed up by current scientific research, we also provide practical ways for it to work for you after months of applying these concepts to ourselves and our clients.

Today I lay down the top 5 foods responsible for blasting fat, providing energy, and getting you the results you so badly desire.

Fat Loss Food #1 — Avocados.

If you believe the hype that all fat is bad for you, well then I kind of feel bad for you. Fat is your friend. Eat fat to lose fat. There is a caveat, you have to have the RIGHT fat.

It’s hard to believe, really, that something so rich and buttery-tasting is a fruit. To me, an avocado is one of nature’s perfect foods, straight from the tree to you. It’s simple, packs a lot of energy, and satisfies your hunger. Avocados are the PERFECT snack because it can keep you feeling full and energetic for hours.

Avocados are full of monounsaturated fat (about 2/3 of the fat is monounsaturated) and nutrients, especially potassium, B vitamins, 11 different carotenoids, and vitamin E. Here at Shredfat inc we recommend that 40 to 60% of your calories coming from healthy fats. Since avocados have a good amount of fiber, almost no sugar (1g per 150g of avocado), and almost no protein (about 3g per 150g of avocado), you can eat tons of them instead of eating carbs or excessive protein.

Avocados have a very thick peel. The peel helps to block pesticides from entering the fruit. That means it’s mostly safe to eat non-organic avocados. However, we still prefer organic avocados when we can purchase them because we value the soil integrity of our planet.

Fat Loss Food #3 — Wild Salmon

Most folks scratch their heads reading this because they think salmon is packed with fat that will contribute to fat gain. These folks are correct; salmon is packed with healthy omega 3 fat, however, these heart healthy fats will NOT contribute to weight gain, but rather to fat loss!

Healthy fats are in fact essential for our well being. Essential fatty acids or EFAs are a key nutrient to keep the body balanced and healthy.

Wild salmon is one of the best sources of EFAs. They work to help fight obesity in a number of ways. One way is that Omega-3 fatty acids found in wild salmon work to decrease the body’s insulin resistance. Insulin resistance is a strong factor in weight gain and diabetes.

Additionally, wild salmon’s omega-3’s encourage the body’s production of leptin. Leptin is a component of the body’s natural weight control process. This vital hormone works to burn fat and suppress the appetite.

Always buy wild caught fish: Fish farms produce supermarket protein with high concentrations of antibiotics, pesticides and lower levels of healthy nutrients. Research has found that farmed fish has less usable omega-3 fatty acids than wild-caught fish and a 20% lower protein content. A USDA review confirmed the findings. Farmed fish are fattier and have a high concentration of omega-6 fatty acids. Imbalances in the levels of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids create inflammation in the body.

Fat Loss Food #4 — Cinnamon

When it comes to weight loss and cinnamon, new research out of a Maryland USDA research center revealed a surprise. Cinnamon was found to lower blood sugar levels. As this discovery was ‘accidental’ the team went on to further investigate cinnamon and blood sugar.

In a separate study conducted on sixty adults diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes the researchers found that taking as little as one-quarter to two teaspoons a day of cinnamon dramatically changed the sufferers blood sugar levels and insulin output. High blood sugar levels are closely associated with weight gain and obesity.

Scientists worldwide are excited over the clinically validated power of a novel form of cinnamon to support healthy glucose metabolism.[1],[2] Scientists at the US Department of Agriculture have been quietly studying it for more than a decade.[3],[4]Government experts have been amazed by compelling in vitro results documenting its ability to induce a twenty-fold increase in sugar metabolism.[5]

Add this spice to your coffee, tea, and sweet snacks for added flavor and a health boost.

Ginger is a known metabolic activator and has been thought to increase metabolism by as much as twenty percent. Some people swear by ginger’s appetite suppressing abilities too. Although there is no scientific data on ginger and weight loss specifically, adding this to your daily diet is a powerful way to help balance your body. A balanced body is a healthy body.

Ginger can also help improve digestion and even soothe an upset stomach.
