Lunchbreak: Fat fighting super foods

5 Fat Fighting Superfoods
Garcinia Cambogia –
Derived from a fruit found in Indonesia, this one has been hitting the airwaves recently as the newest natural fat buster, and I absolutely love it! This incredible fruit has a key ingredient in the rind called Hydroxycitric acid (HCA), which works by telling your brain that you’re full – so you don’t eat as much.
Raspberry Ketone –
This one has been making waves in the scientific community and has created quite a stir among Dr. Oz fans after he called it a “Miracle Fat-Burner in a Bottle.” Raspberry Ketones help your fat cells release fatty acids, which are then burned as fuel for your body. It also helps regulate your glucose, so it’s a one-two punch for weight loss.
Spicy Foods –
Simply add a little extra spice to your plate and it will rev up your metabolism! A recent study published in the Journal of Nutrition showed that adding spices like turmeric, cinnamon, rosemary, oregano, garlic powder and paprika to plain meals can cut back on the release of insulin and triglycerides after eating. The end result is basically that the body’s metabolism, which is responsible for converting food to fuel, is working faster and more efficiently and preventing your food from turning to fat.
Caralluma Fimbriata -
Cactus for weight loss? Yes! Caralluma Fimbriata extract is derived from a cactus that grows abundantly in India where it has been consumed raw for centuries. Nicknamed “The Hunger Buster,” this edible cactus is known in its native India as “famine food,” because it was eaten during times of famine and on hunting treks for its powerful appetite-suppressing and thirst-quenching qualities. The potent natural elements in this remarkable Indian cactus help curb food cravings, disrupt fat formation, and support lean muscle mass, making it an excellent addition for a healthy weight loss regimen.
Green Coffee Bean –
This super bean is truly amazing! In a recent 22-week clinical study, 16 adults who supplemented with pure green coffee bean extract for 12 weeks lost an average of 17 pounds each – this was 16 percent of their overall body fat! There have been numerous studies done on the miraculous weight loss benefits of green coffee bean. The key natural active compound in green coffee bean extract is called Chlorogenic Acid, and it works by slowing the release of sugar into the blood after eating. This prevents excess blood sugar from accumulating in our bodies where it is stored as fat. It also forces our body to burn stored fat rather than sugar for energy.
