In the Vol.6 No.5 issue (July - September 2011) of DiabetEASE magazine, it featured an article entitled "Eat Your Way to a Thinner Body" (written by Emil Karlo dela Cruz) which listed some kinds of food that can help burn fat, and since this blog is all about wellness, I just want to feature the food, but of course I am not copying the article word per word.
For many overweight people, the very first thing they do when they want to slim down is to eliminate many kinds of food, for they think that food is the main reason why they are overweight. While that can be true, eliminating food in our system can give us more harm than good. Remembering an episode of "The Biggest Loser Pinoy Edition," house dietitian Nadine Tengco said something like, "If food is the reason why you're overweight, food can also be the reason for you to lose weight."
With that, here are some of foods, which can help burn fat:
- Foods rich in Vitamin C
- Dairy products
- Whole Grain Cereals
- Fish Oil
- Green Tea
Want to know how these help burn body fats? Well, you have to buy the magazine to find out why. :)
One main thing the article said - these food may help burn fat, but its magic can only be utilized if proper diet is partnered with a good workout. Also, proportion has to be considered; as each food has its own calorie value per volume.
To borrow a quote from the article, "While it is nice to have a beautiful and lean body, health IS still the most valued treasure."
