    The Top 5 Fat-Burning Fruits

    The Top 5 Fat-Burning Fruits-1212732large.jpg


    Are you trying to lose weight? Now you can have your fruit and your weight loss too. Most fruit contains excessive amount of natural sugars that quickly converts into fat when eaten in excess. There are some fruits that actually work to help burn fat. Adding more of these fruits to your diet can help with fat loss. While fruit has many natural healing compounds, sometimes its sugar content can be a problem for people interested in losing weight.

    However, some fruits actually help you to burn fat. Here are my picks for the Top 5 Fat-Burning fruits.

    Avocado: Loaded with healthy Omega 9 fatty acids (the same fats found in olive oil, olives, and macadamia nuts), avocados speed the conversion of fat into energy and boost the rate of metabolism.


    Coconut: Coconut is rich with medium chain triglycerides (MCFAs) which increase the liverís rate of metabolism by up to 30 percent, according to some experts. They also help keep you full so youíre less likely to snack on junk food. Coconut oil frequently aids the functioning of the thyroid gland. Coconut oil,coconut milk (not the low fat variety), coconut flour, and shredded (unsweetened) coconut all contain MCFAs.

    Lemons: Excellent liver detoxifiers, lemons also alkalize our body. They may seem acidic based on taste but in the process of being metabolized by the body, they actually alkalize our bodily fluids and tissues. Maintaining the health of the liver is also imperative to the bodyís ability to digest and burn fat, since the liver is one of the organs responsible for these functions


    Grapefruit: Many studies confirm that grapefruit is an excellent weight loss food. In one study at Johns Hopkins University, women who eat grapefruit daily shed almost 20 pounds on average in only 13 weeks, without changing anything else in their diet or lifestyle.

    Tomatoes: Packed with vitamin C and the phytochemical lycopene, tomatoes stimulate the production of the amino acid known as carnitine. Research has shown carnitine helps speed the bodyís fat-burning capacity by one third.

    How to Benefit:

    Itís easy to reap the weight loss rewards of these fruits. Use full-fat coconut milk and oil in curries, smoothies, or baking. Try my Super Fat-Busting Green Tea Lemonade as a great way to reap the benefits of lemons. Enjoy a grapefruit for breakfast or as a snack instead of something sweet. Make your own fresh salsa or add tomatoes to soups, stews, salads, or curries. Make fresh guacamole with minced onion, garlic, lemon juice, and chopped tomato and cilantro.
    Super Health Bonus:

    Not only will these fruits help with weight loss, they have plenty of other health benefits too. Avocado helps prevent heart disease. Coconuts help prevent cancer. Grapefruit gives the liver a boost. Lycopene is a powerful antioxidant that studies show cuts the risk of heart disease by 29 percent.

    Dear Vimala, you can try Cabbage soup.

    Ingredients

    • 250g cabbage(Chop it coarsely)
    • 1 medium sized onions(Chop it coarsely)
    • garlic clove(Chopped)
    • 1 cups of water
    • tomato and carrot-1(optional)
    • salt to taste
    • Pepper powder (it tastes good if freshly ground)-2 pinch
    • Coriander leaves(add it finally for garnishing)
    • Cumin powder -2 pinch

    Method:

    • Boil all namely cabbage, onions,tomato,carrot and garlic together in 1 cups of water till vegetables are tender and cooked.
    • You can either blend the vegetables in the blender after leaving it to cool or have it as such... depends on your choice.If you do not blend you can bite pieces of cabbages and onions which few do not prefer and they would like to have a clean sip in a bowl.
    • 3. If you blend then Strain it out and again put on heat. If required you can add water and bring it to boil.
    • 4. You can sprinkle pepper,cumin powder,salt and garnish with coriander leaves.

    Transfer it to a soup bowl and have a sip of your healthy diet soup.Making it a habit of preparing healthy vegetables soups as such frequently for your family makes them stay healthy.
