Part 1 – Can you “program” your body to burn fat?

can you program your body to burn fat

Fighting annoying fat is a continuous process and you can never reliably say that you won. Once you relax a little, fat is returning into play.

Fortunately, there are tricks that can encourage your body to continuously burn fat and maintain a healthy, fit shape.

Food that has the power to burn fat

Make these few foods a base for your meals and enjoy the positive changes that are happening to your body.

  • Proteins

You’re not surprised, are you? Proteins run through every topic related to fitness, but believe that there is a good reason for it. Especially when talking about the release of excess fat. Protein causes a high thermogenic effect in the body because it takes more energy for digestion. By devoting extra energy to break down protein, the body accelerates metabolism, which works in your favor, for a long time after you finish eating. Another feature that makes them ideal for diet is that a small amount of them can keep you full for longer.

The greatest amount of protein you can consume is through meat, fish and eggs, therefore you need to look at several things. Eat more lean meat such as chicken and turkey, and less red meat. While it is a good source of B vitamins and iron, red meat contains more fat and can harm your health if overused by its consumption.

Eggs also contain large amounts of protein and vitamin B12, which helps the body to quickly burn fat. But they should be taken in limited quantities because it can cause allergies. As for the fish, eat more of the one that is not very fatty. But at least once a week, do consume fish containing higher amounts of healthy omega-3 fats, such as salmon.

Milk whey protein is an excellent choice to supplement the daily protein intake and it does not contain unnecessary calories and burns fat effectively.

  • Legumes

This food is an excellent source of protein for those who do not want to eat a lot of meat. In fact, because of its nutritional value, it should be on the menu even for those who eat meat.

Legumes (beans, peas, lentils) contain few calories and are full of protein and minerals such as iron. They also contain a large amount of fiber which are an excellent macronutrient to improve the digestive system, making them among the best foods to encourage the process of burning fat.

If you can eat limited amounts, nuts are the foods that burn fat. The only problem with them is the temptation to exaggerate. And instead of one hand, you might be tempted to eat a 100 grams for a few minutes. Besides boosting the metabolism, nuts contain healthy fats and proteins, so a small amount of them can keep you satiated for a long time.

Remember that there are no fitness “diets”, rather a diet that you should apply for the long-term. Therefore, carefully include these foods into your meal plan in a way that you think will work for longer and program your body to continuously burn fat.
