The Top 5 Fat Burning Foods For Faster Weightloss

A good diet & exercise is always going to be the most powerful way to lose weight but certain foods encourage the body to burn fat faster. If you want to lose weight it would be worthwhile for you to know what they are. We've listed the top 5 for you.#1 Eggs (and more specifically egg yolks):All the egg nutrients except for the protein are in the yolk and an egg is one of the most complete foods you can eat. If you have eggs for breakfast you will feel less hungry for the rest of the day.  Eggs also contain vitamin B12, which is key to helping your body break down and burn fat. Try and pick free range eggs from pasture fed chickens as they are a good source of omega-3 fats.#2 Oatmeal:Oatmeal is rich in soluble fibre. This assists in flushing bad digestive acids out of your system and thus lowers cholesterol.#3 Low fat milk and natural yogurt:Studies have shown that women who eat low fat dairy products 3 to 4 times a day lose 70% more fat than those that consume a low amount of dairy. The fat breakdown in cells is likely to be caused by the calcium, protein and the amino acid leucine that is found in these foods.Lets pause here quickly and note that our top 3 fat burning foods can be eaten right at the start of the day for breakfast!  An excellent way to start your day with the goal of maximizing fat loss. On to number 4...#4 Avocados:Avocados are often thought of as a "fatty food" - maybe so but they contain all healthy fats! Avocado is super-high in mono-unsaturated fat, but also power-packed full of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.  Guacamole (mashed avocados with garlic, onion, tomato, pepper) is one of the best toppings created full of fat burning potential. Add it to any meal throughout the day.#5 WalnutsAll nuts are good but walnuts are one of the few plant sources of omega-3 fats crucial to health.  One reason for nuts being good fat burners is that not all of the energy in them can be broken down but they are filling thus helping you to eat less.Good ways to integrate these foods into your diet to increase fat loss:
Try and add these foods and their variations to each of your meals.  Fortunately you have plenty of scope.  For example eggs can be eaten in a number of different ways and for all meals: Hard-boiled, soft-boiled, omelette, poached etc.
These foods can also make up excellent  snacks for example the avocadoes and walnuts.
Look for related foods e.g. Tomoatoes, Almonds, Cashew Nuts that you can also include.
