Fat Burning Foods - Part 2

fat burning foodsContinued from where we left off a few days ago, another great source of fat burning food is that of the pomegranate. It has a high level of Conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), polyphenols and antioxidant.  CLA is said to help in the firming process of our tummy as it causes the lowering of body fat and increase in lean muscles. Polyphenols helps our body to burn fat via inducing the thermogenesis process, where the body burns fat to maintain its core temperature. The high antioxidant property of pomegranate reduces the amount of free radicals cortisol in our body.  Cortisol will encourage lean muscle break down to produce energy for the body while promoting fat storage in our mid section.  Eating more pomegranates will stop these bad cortisol from spoiling our fat burning and muscle building regime.

Lentils provide a great source of minerals for our body, which is essentials in the fat burning process and also it has a filling property which helps us feel full and thus won't overeat and get obese in the process.  Lentils also are rich in plant proteins and low in carbohydrates which show us why they are an idea food if we are to keep our body fat composition low.  Its high fiber content helps to reduce our body cholesterol as well.

Foods that are rich in Omega 3 fatty acids like fish are a good source of fat burning food. So how does it work here?  Well, Omega 3 is said to help increase the permeability of the cell membrane and this can help increase protein synthesis improving our glycogen storage capacity as a result.  This in turn helps to regulate more Leptin production in our body as our insulin levels are more balance.  The more Leptin in our body, the less easy we will feel hungry. Leptin is a hormone produced by our body fat.  Which means the more Leptin is produced the more body fats are used and the less easy we will feel hungry.  Less insulin level in our body means less fat will be stored into our tummy.  Omega 3 can also improve the fat burning process in mitochondria, our fat burning furnace in our body.  It is like adding oil to a burning fire which helps it burn even more efficiently our stored fat. 

Finally, the all important source of life, where everything is originated from and that is water.  Without water we all will not be able to survive anyway.  Water is the source of minerals which helps to regulate our body’s metabolism.  With a well metabolic rate, our body will burn fat more easily, keeping our body fat at an optimum level at all time.  It is important to know that all our cell activities in our body, including the fat burning process, requires water in order to be able to carry out in an efficient manner.  That is why we need to drink at least 8 glasses of water everyday so that our body can perform at the healthiest level for our own benefit.
