Five fat-burning foods that burn calories as you chew
Believe it or not, certain foods have an extremely high theromgenic effect, so you literally burn calories as you chew!

Plus, other foods are packed with nutrients and compounds that stroke your metabolic fire. Here are five fat-burning foods that you should feed your metabolism with...

Five top fat-burning foods

#1: Green tea
A study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that people who drank four cups of green tea per day lost almost 3 kg in eight weeks. The researchers credited EGCG, a compound in green tea that temporarily speeds up metabolism after drinking it. The best part? This fat-burning tea is tasty both hot and cold!
 
#2: Whole grains
Your body burns double the amount of calories breaking down whole grain – especially those filled with fibre like oatmeal and brown rice – than it does breaking down processed foods like breakfast cereal and white pasta.

#3: Lentils
One cup of lentils contains 35% of your daily iron needs, which is great news considering 20% of us are deficient in this essential mineral. When your levels of an important nutrient are low, your metabolism slows down because your body isn’t getting what it needs to work properly, according to Tammy Lakatos Shame, co-author of The Secret to Skinny.
 
#4: Hot peppers
Hot peppers contain a compound called capsaicin, which gives them their kick, heats up your body and makes you scorch additional calories. You can get it by eating hot peppers raw, dried, cooked or in powdered form. For further fat-burning benefits, add as much hot sauce or cayenne as possible to soups, eggs and meats.
 
#5: Low-fat dairy products
Low-fat dairy products are chockfull of calcium and vitamin D; two nutrients that help build and preserve muscle mass, which is key to maintaining a robust metabolism.
 
Add these five fat-burning foods to your diet and watch the fat melt away!
