There are hundreds of articles online that will talk to you on “easy” or “quick fixes” to burn fat and become the most ripped person on the planet. The majority of them are bull.

They will try and bluff their way into saying you can transform into an absolute shredded machine in just two weeks – no matter what condition you’re currently in.

The reality is it takes time. Just like everything worthwhile.

Something that we always tell people is that this is a lifestyle change. Not a diet. Not a two week fix. A lifestyle.

So, with that being said, here are a few key foods that you should add to your lifestyle, in order to help burn fat.

Fatty Fish

One of the best foods for shifting fat is fish – especially fatty fish. You have so many options, too – Salmon, Sardines, Mackerel – any fish that is rich in Omega 3.

The beauty about fish is it helps in more ways than one. Yes, this article is focusing on foods that help burn fat, but, fish also reduces the risk of heart disease – something we can all be happy with.

To boost your fat loss regime and to protect your heart, try to add fish into your meals at least 2 or 3 times a week.

We simply don’t start a morning without it. Coffee has been our wakeup call for a long time and with good reason. Not only does it help inject life into our metabolism from the get-go, it also helps enhance our mood and improve mental and physical performance.

For fat burning, aim for between 1-2 cups of coffee a day. Try not to overdo it though, as coffee overload can bring a number of side effects including anxiety and sleepless nights.

 

Green Tea

Green tea has been a popular weight loss and detox beverage for many years. Studies suggest that it may help reduce heart disease risk and protect against certain types of cancer.

We have read a number of articles that go against the Green Tea benefits, but, in our opinion, we only see good things from drinking 2-3 cups a day.

One big benefit is that it helps to clean out your system, adding more water and healthy vitamins into your diet. It will also curb and cravings throughout the day, thus keeping you on track to your goals.

Protein shakes

Protein is always mentioned in weight loss articles. The reason for this is due to protein helping to fuel muscle as well as not adding fat.

Something we swear by, with our workout programs, are protein shakes. Protein shakes help combine muscle growth with fat loss – the perfect combination.

Whey protein is also great for minimising any cravings you may have. Within minutes of having a protein shake, you will feel much more full. This helps to curb them bad habits of snacking on sweets and heavy carb foods.

Don’t forget, the more muscle you have, the more calories you will burn in normal day-to-day activities. So, try not to avoid weight lifting during your fat loss plan. It’s just as effective as cardio in many senses.
