3 Fat Burning FoodsPosted: October 27, 2009 in Healthy Eating by Craig Primack MD FACP
Although no food is truly “fat burning,” there are some that you can select that will lighten your calorie load and prevent you from eating foods that will pack on the pounds. When it comes to sweets, nothing is a better replacement than fruits. The sugar in fruit is natural and it comes without the added fat that you will find in things such as doughnuts or ice cream. In addition, fruits are packed with vitamins and antioxidants, so they make a healthy addition to your diet. Try these three to start:
- Citrus fruits such as grapefruit are full of vitamin C and taste delicious. They can make a great addition to breakfast.
- Apples have plenty of fiber in them which can help you feel full. This makes them a wonderful snack for between meals.
- Grapes come in several different varieties and you can freeze them for a candy-like treat.
Experiment with exotic fruits, too–try mangos or pineapple for something that is a little different. Curb that sweet tooth while keeping off the calories by taking advantage of what nature has to offer. Substituting fruit is a healthy way to switch your sugar cravings off and create a new healthy habit when it comes to how you eat.
