Burn Body Fat With These Vegetables And Spices

I bet you didn’t know that there is a specific class of vegetables that contain very specific phytonutrients that actually help to fight against belly fat.

Most folks do not know that there are certain chemicals in food and also in the environment like herbicides, pest control products that contain petrochemicals that can behave like xenoestrogens.

These xenoestrogens can cause problems in both sexes because they can cause hormone imbalances if there is excess exposure to them.

These estrogenic chemicals that we are exposed to on a daily basis can stimulate your body to store belly fat, along with many other problems.

So here’s where this specific class of vegetables comes in handy

Certain cruciferous vegetables have specific nutrients that fight those xenoestrogens that are making you store more belly fat. The best vegetables are brussel sprouts, cauliflower, kale and broccoli.

The fact that these vegetables work against the estrogenic effects will enable you to fight and reduce belly fat.

So there you go just another excuse to do what mom always told you and eat more broccoli!

As I tried some of these vegetables I learned to like them with a little garlic and melted grass fed cheese to improve the taste. You will come up with your own favorites, I am sure.

Now , there are some spices that also can help you burn off the fat

There is a compound in chilis called capsaicin that increases your energy use up to 23 percent when eaten in the morning.

Also, black pepper creates increased body heat, called thermogenesis , which helps burn calories

3. Turmeric has both anti-cancer and pro-thermogenic support. Best of two worlds if you ask me.

Combine all three spices and add them to you meals you get an increase in the benefits of just one. Triple team your fat.

You just do not want to over use these spices or you may end up with too much heartburn. Burn stomach fat , not your stomach lining.

1. Make a delicious low fat mayonnaise by combining one teaspoon of Dijon mustard or satay sauce with a low fat yogurt.

3. Stuff vegetables like capsicum and zucchini with flavored fillings or minced chicken, white meat or fish. These are healthy and contain low fat.
4. Take pita bread roll ups or wraps with salad fillings.
5. Eight hours after waking up, our metabolism slows down that is why 30 minutes of exercise before dinner will increase the metabolism for about two to three hours. This produces an increase in burned fat even hours after the work out is over.
6. Add alfalfa or mung beans to salad to get extra iron.
7. Good cooking and healthy eating begins with learning about nutrition and how to prepare healthy recipes.
