Tired of that sticks to your skin? While there is no magic formula for weight loss, the following foods will help you burn fatter.
In a review of over 90 studies published in Nutrition Reviews we showed that high intake of calcium had a real impact on the health of the body. If you do not shoot enough calcium from your diet you will have more trouble losing weight whatever you do, said Dr. Robert P. Heaney a professor at Creighton University in Omaha (Nebraska).
When your calcium levels are low the body secretes hormones that make better use of the calcium foods. The problem is that suddenly the body signals the fat cells store fat. Dairy products including milk cheese (especially Swiss) and yogurt are the preferred sources of calcium. Take three servings per day maybe you do not lose 45 pounds but if you’re watching your calorie intake you can lose about 7 kilos according to Robert P. Heaney.
Oats and barley
Taking barley as a side dish instead of white rice you can help eliminate your abdominal fat. That at least is the conclusion of a study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. Topics regime were instructed either to avoid whole grains or not to take their servings of grains in the form of whole grains (whole wheat bread, oats, barley, rice) for 12 weeks. Although both groups had lost the same amount of weight those who ate whole grains were able to eliminate more abdominal fat. Make sure you take at least three servings of whole grains per day.
According to a study published in the Journal of Nutrition green tea can eliminate belly fat if made as walking. The subjects were given either a drink containing catechism, powerful antioxidants green tea a drink does not include. All were also 180 minutes of exercise per week especially walking. After 12 weeks subjects in the first group had lost 7.4% more abdominal fat than those in the second group.
“Catechism accelerate metabolism and the rate at which the body burns its fat,” said Kevin C. Maki, author of the study. To achieve similar results you should drink four to six cups of decaffeinated green tea a day and not do at least 180 minutes of exercise a week.
To lose weight you must reduce your calorie intake but not at the expense of proteins. In a study published in the Journal of Nutrition subjects who followed a diet moderately high in protein (40% protein and 30% carbohydrate) lost at the end of one year, 38% body fat more than those on a diet richer in carbohydrates (55% carbohydrates and 15% protein).
Proteins promote weight loss first because the body uses more energy so calories to break down proteins for other groups of nutrients. When you lose weight protein help maintain muscle mass or muscle burns more calories than fat. Finally, they more satiating than carbohydrates, says Donald K. Layman chief researcher.
Our advice take protein at every meal especially at breakfast where they are lacking. The egg is a cheap solution. You can also take a hard boiled egg for a snack which is much better than chips or a chocolate bar. In addition, it is one of the few natural sources of vitamin D, a nutrient which, according to the results of preliminary studies may help maintain a healthy weight.
Nuts and almonds
Nuts could help eliminate abdominal fat. In a study published in Archives of Internal Medicine in 1200 adult subjects in the first group followed the Mediterranean diet most consuming 30 g of walnuts per day those in the second followed the same diet but took 1 liter of olive oil per week the third group served as a control group.
Walnuts and other nuts have positive effects, provided, however, not to consume too much. These effects may be due to their content in fiber protein and good fats which are believed to be increasing the sensitivity of the body to insulin and thus contribute to weight loss.
According to a study published in the British Journal of Nutrition, although we do not know the exact mechanisms we found that omega-3 reduced fat mass, says Irne Mounro, a researcher at the University of Newcastle (Australia). In other studies it was found that omega 3 filled up the appetite and continued to satisfy two hours after eating fish that were rich. Whenever possible eat salmon or other fatty fish, such as mackerel herring or canned tuna, at least twice a week.
Apple, pear and sweet pepper
These three items have in common is rich in flavonoids, chemicals that occur naturally in foods of plant origin, which could exert an action on fat. According to a study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition women who consumed the highest amount of flavonoids saw their body mass index increased significantly less over 14 years than those who ate less. It has been shown in animal studies that these flavonoids increased energy expenditure (and therefore calories) and glucose uptake by the muscles and allowed to burn more fat, says Laura Hughes, MSc, Principal Investigator of the study and a nutritional epidemiologist at the University Maastricht (Netherlands). The onion leek, and the green and white tea also contain flavonoids.
These small seeds brilliant nutty flavor to contain lignans, compounds that according to results of a study published in the British Journal of Nutrition have been associated with fat mass and body mass index lower in postmenopausal women. “Previous studies in mice have shown that lignans reduced the mass of adipose tissue,” said Anne Sophie Morisset, RD, MSc, and lead author of the study at Laval University in Quebec. It has not been surprised to discover that the consumption of lignans resulted in weight loss. She advises to consume a daily tablespoon of ground flax seeds adding them to cereal yogurt or salads. Sesame seeds multigrain bread, hummus, garlic, dried apricot, soybeans, sunflower seeds and pistachios are other good sources of lignans.
It seems that vinegar helps remove fat from the results of a study published in Bioscience, Biotechnology and Biochemistry. Obese having taken a drink containing 15-30 ml of vinegar lost more body fat after 12 weeks than the control group. The researchers believe that vinegar activates genes that produce enzymes help the body break down fats. If you try the experiment take 15 ml of vinegar each day by diluting it in milk or soda to reduce the acidity.
