A List of Foods That Burn Fat Fast
Catabolism: The breakdown of more complex substances into simpler ones with release of energy.
In other words, there are certain foods that if eaten, will actually burn more calories than they contain. God is truly amazing! Nearly everything we eat contains calories, i.e., if it’s real food. A bottle of Diet Pepsi contains ZERO calories because it’s not food, its poisonous Aspartame. If you burn more calories than you consume, you will lose weight. It’s a basic principle of weight loss. So it’s actually healthy to snack on catabolic foods throughout the day when you get hungry, and you’ll be losing weight in the process. Pretty nifty huh?
Some foods, like a piece of chocolate cake baptized in chocolate icing, are high in calories, and take a while to burn off. Other foods, like lettuce, are low in calories, and can be burned off faster. Your body is always burning calories, even if you’re sitting still and doing nothing. Being physically active definitely helps to burn calories faster, but you don’t want to overdo it. Swimming is one of the best and safest exercises, i.e., unless you like to dive into the shallow end of the pool head first.
So, what are the foods that burn fat fast?
Catabolic foods burn more calories than they contain. For example, an apple contains around 80 or 90 calories. But the energy your body uses to metabolize the apple burns about 180 calories. So, when you eat an apple, your body burns off up to 100 calories more than you consumed. So the saying still holds true. “An apple a day keeps the doctor away.”
Here is a list of high catabolic foods:
Of course, this doesn’t mean you can eat a greasy double-cheeseburger, and then eat five apples to make up for it. What it does mean is, if you are on a diet, eating certain foods will help you burn more calories and lose weight faster. These are foods you can snack on throughout the day, satisfying your hunger without ruining your diet.
