If you’re worried that the lockdown is going to cause you to grow a tummy before you get back to work, then consider including these fat burning foods in your daily diet:
Eggs are a good source of high-quality protein which increae metabolic rate by about 20-35 per cent for several hours after eating. Eating eggs can help you burn fat and make you feel full for a longer period.
Sardines, mackerel, salmon and other fatty fish contain omega-3 fatty acids that may promote fat loss. Fish is also rich in protein, which helps you feel full and boosts metabolic rate during digestion.
Studies show that people who consumed coffee an hour before working out, burned twice as more fat than those who didn’t. Around 1-4 cups of coffee a day can be helpful.
A whey protein shake is a quick meal or snack option that promotes fat loss. Whey protein appears to increase muscle growth, reduce appetite, increase fullness and boost metabolism more effectively than other protein sources.
Apple cider vinegar
Apple cider vinegar may help suppress appetite, promote loss of belly fat and reduce blood sugar and insulin levels.
Full-fat Greek yogurt may increase fat burning, reduce appetite, protect muscle mass during weight loss and improve gut health.
Leafy greens are an excellent addition to your weight loss diet. Not only are they low in calories but also high in fiber that helps keep you feeling full.
Cruciferous vegetables like cauliflower, broccoli are low in calories but high in fiber and nutrients. They are an excellent weight loss strategy but may also improve your overall health.
Avocados are a good example of a healthy fat source you can include in your diet while trying to lose weight. Just make sure to keep your intake moderate.
