Picture this. You have an important meeting at work, you get ready and start driving. You get to the freeway and all of a sudden… BOOM, traffic!!! There is absolutely nothing you can do to get to work on time.
You sit through the traffic, going through the motions, knowing that you will be late to this very important meeting. You accept defeat and go through the motions. There is nothing you can do to get you to work faster.
Well, sometimes in life these things happen. It happens all the time! We just gotta sit through things and be patient. Do we have any other option?
How about another situation: you have an upcoming event, let’s say a vacation or wedding. But there’s a problem, you want to look good for the occasion but need to lose some weight first. You want to lose the love handles and shed the belly fat, and quick! This event is right around the corner. You don’t want to be seen at the hotel resort with those love handles bulging out of your T-shirt!
You want to feel comfortable walking around the hotel resort wearing just your shorts.
You could start working out get to get in some sort of shape even though time is short. It normally takes weeks to actually see results from training. Dieting, training, recovery, repeat…
It takes time, almost like sitting through traffic where you just go through the motions. You will get there eventually if you persist. But it takes a certain amount of time.
Now, unlike getting stuck in traffic with no way out, you can actually lose weight faster. There is a way you can accelerate fat loss.
You can actually eat certain foods that help you lose weight faster. These foods contain goodies which:
- Hinders the storage of belly fat and aids rapid weight loss.
- Help burn more fat during workouts
- Improve cholesterol and triglyceride levels
- Enhance your fat burning ability
So if we eat the foods that help us to lose weight faster, we can…well… lose weight faster!
Think about it. What does this mean to you?
Does it mean:
- Getting rid of that stubborn belly fat?
- Fitting in your jeans again?
- Looking good in your clothes?
- Feeling comfortable with the way you look?
- Having the confidence to speak to anyone?
Whatever your reason, you now know that there is a way to speed fat loss. Think of it as taking the express lane in our traffic example.
You can be that happy person on the freeway too. Add the following items to your grocery list and start consuming more of these throughout the week.
These are all great foods to accelerate your fat loss. Some of these foods are also great ways to boost your productivity.
Lose Weight Fast With These 7 Foods
Almonds help burn more fat and carbs during workouts as shown by a study found in The Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition. They contain L-arginine, an amino acid responsible for its fat burning ability. Another study on overweight and obese adults found that consuming a handful of almonds a day along with a calorie-restricted diet, led to a 62% greater reduction in weight and BMI compared to just having a calorie-restricted diet alone after 12 weeks.
Just like almonds, a similar study conducted by UCLA Center of Human Nutrition, showed greater reductions in BMI for those who consumed 240 calories worth of pistachios a day over 12 weeks. Pistachios also help with cholesterol levels, an added bonus.
Consuming only half a grapefruit before a meal, enhances your body’s fat burning ability. This is caused by phytochemicals found in grapefruit, and according to a study published in the Journal Metabolism, can reduce your belly fat by up to an inch in only six weeks!
- Green tea
Green tea contains catechins, a powerful antioxidant. A study published in The Journal of Nutrition found Green tea to aid in rapid weight loss and hinder the storage of belly fat.
- Avocado Oil
Research from Penn State University showed those who consumed three tablespoons of avocado oil a day, to lose nearly 2 percent of belly fat in just one month!
Yoghurt contains vitamin D and calcium, both excellent for fat loss. According to a Nutrition Journal study, subjects who took these two nutrients experienced twice as more fat loss than a group without it in only 4 weeks! Go grab some yogurt!
A study found that eating a calorie restricted diet that includes four weekly servings of legumes to aid in weight loss more efficiently than a similar diet without legumes. Legumes also improve cholesterol levels and aid with controlling blood pressure.
