4 Foods For More Fat Loss

There are simple foods you can add to your diet to encourage further fa.t loss.

Wanna know what they are?

Mike Roussell, PhD, of, points out foods that maximize fa.t loss.

1. Salmon - Research from Western University has shown that omega-3 fats (which are abundant in salmon) can boost your daily calorie burn by 400 calories or more. On top of that, salmon is high in protein which also helps burn more calories due to its ability to build muscle and its thermic effect (how much energy/calories it takes for the body to digest). If you can't eat salmon often, take 4 grams of fish oil DAILY.

2. Almonds - They are great snack foods. They're high in fat, fiber, and protein and low in carbohydrates which helps keep your blood sugar levels under control. Another key is they are great for curbing your hunger which is key in fat loss. Keep a small bag of almonds with you at your desk, in your car, or wherever it is you spend most of your time.

3. Broccoli - My favourite vegetable and I'm unashamed about it. From a health standpoint, broccoli contains many phytochemicals (plant chemicals) that help fight against cancer such as indoles. Another compound in it, Calcium D-glucarate, can bind excess estrogen in the body. It's also high in fibre and low in carbohydrates. Eat it EVERYDAY...seriously!

4. Green Tea - Another power food. Green tea is a powerhouse when it comes to health and also helps in the area of fat loss. It contains cancer fighting compounds, antioxidants, caffeine, and the fat burning compound EGCG. Research has shown that a combination of EGCG and caffeine which are both naturally in green tea, help burn extra fat. Aim for 2-3 cups per day.

There you have it, 4 powerhouse foods to help you not only be healthier, but burn more fat at the same time!

"I have lost a lot of inches since the beginning of the bootcamp, most of them after I started the nutrition plan. It's fantastic! I can wear pants that I was wearing two years ago, before I gained all the fat. I feel great and I have a lot of energy. My weight also dropped by 6 pounds since the beginning of the nutrition plan. The tailor had to take inches off my wedding dress because it was too big!" - Emmy Vallee
