20 Great Fat Burning Foods To Boost Your Metabolism This Fall Season

In the fall the number one thing that we worry about is gaining weight during Thanksgiving and the holiday season. Below are pictures of 20 great fat burning foods to help boost that metabolism in no particular order. This article was inspired by the following articles: Womans Health Mag , Bembu.Com and include some of my own ideas. When I was on a serious hard core diet I ate these foods religiously. With the help of eating right I had gone from 140 pounds to 120 pounds in a little over a few months. Along with doing this I was at the gym for three hours every day burning about 500 calories a day in order to drop the weight. I have always wanted to do one of these lists because I had seen them on so many websites and in so many videos. I will also include a really great work out video from YouTube that is included in some of my old weight loss tips.

1. Raspberries

Raspberries are very known to be fat burning foods. I did a lot of research back when I myself was dieting and it really does wonders. I used to eat them by the carton because of the fact that they were fat burning foods. I very much trust Raspberries.

2. Blueberries

"Berries, in general, are great for weight loss and fat loss. That’s because they are loaded with polyphenol antioxidants that can help burn fat as well as prevent it from forming. Various studies conducted on both rats and humans have looked closely at the role berries play in weight loss. Researchers have found promising fat-loss results. We singled out blueberries, however, because they are a great source of the antioxidant resveratrol, which researchers say can turn harmful white fat into calorie-burning brown fat."- Bembu.com

3. Watermelon

Watermelon is extremely fat burning. Watermelon has a lot of water which helps you speed that metabolism!

4. Green Tea

"Fires up fat burning"- Womans Health Mag

5. Spinach

"Spinach is low in calories and carbohydrates, yet high in fiber. That’s a great combination if you’re looking to lose weight! Plus, Swedish researchers found women who consumed spinach for three months experienced a drop in weight, hunger, and cravings. You can eat spinach in several different ways, fresh as a salad or cooked. Along with fresh spinach, you can also get it frozen. It works for weight loss by adding bulk to your stomach without packing on the calories."- Bembu.com

6. Grapefruit

"Lowers insulin, regulates blood sugar and metabolism; be sure to eat the fleshy white membranes" - Womans Health Mag

7. Peanut Butter

"Boosts testosterone (a good thing even in women), builds muscle, burns fat" - Womans Health Mag

8. Whole Grains

"Small doses prevent body from storing fat" - Womans Health Mag

9. Turkey

"Build muscle, strengthen immune system"- Womens Health Mag

10. Fish

"Trigger fullness, fire up fat burning" - Womens Health Mag

11. Eggs

"Build muscle, burn fat" - Womens Health Mag

12. Pineapple

Pineapple is very fat burning as well. Pineapple has always been a favorite of mine. I used to eat dried pineapple with my raspberries in order to boost my metabolism.

13. Tomatoes

"Is it a fruit? Is it a vegetable? Who cares? All you need to know is that it’s got a ton of good things for your body to help you burn fat and lose weight! A team of Japanese researchers discovered a powerful fat-blasting compound in tomatoes called 9-oxo-ODA. Other studies have found the beta-carotene and lycopene in tomatoes benefit fat loss. Researchers found people who eat beta-carotene and lycopene-rich diets have smaller waists and lower belly fat.
Additionally, tomatoes are low-calorie, low-fat, and rich in fiber! Like any bona fide superfood, tomatoes bring more to the table than just weight loss. They contain antioxidants that ward off various diseases and illnesses. So next time you go food shopping, be sure to add tomatoes to your cart."- Bembu.com

14. Apples

"Apples are often viewed as the ultimate health food and rightfully so. They offer the body many health benefits, including weight loss. That’s partly because apples are high in pectin, which binds with water and limits the amount of fat your cells can absorb. Additionally, apples are high in fiber, which makes you feel full for longer. Just be sure to chew your apple really well before swallowing and go organic so you can leave the peel on! Did you know the peel is loaded with beneficial nutrients?" - Bembu.com

15. Pears

"Pears often get overlooked as the long lost cousin to apples, but they too offer a host of benefits, including weight loss. Just like with apples, pears contain pectin and are rich in fiber, which helps beat mid-morning or afternoon snacking. If you don’t keep pears in your house, then it’s time to start. You can eat them plain as a snack or you can cook with them!" - Bembu.com

16. Cantaloupe

"Cantaloupe is a great weight-loss food since it’s high in filling fiber and the fat-fighting compound beta-carotene. It’s also sweet, yet low-calorie, making it the perfect treat. When it comes to eating cantaloupe, though, doctors say it’s best to eat it alone. In an interview about proper food pairing, Dr. Joseph Mercola said:
“‘Eat melon alone, or leave it alone, or your stomach will moan.’ In short, melon does not digest well with other foods and will frequently cause problems unless you eat it alone.”" - Bembu.com

17. Oranges

"When you chomp into an orange, chances are you think of their amazing dose of immune-boosting vitamin C. But did you know they also aid weight loss? While this fruit does contain a nice amount of sugar, the fiber in oranges actually helps to regulate your blood glucose levels. Additionally, oranges are low-calorie." - Bembu.com

18. Nuts

"Build muscle, reduce cravings" - Womans Health Mag

19. Sweet Potato

"Sweet potatoes aren’t only a delicious Thanksgiving food. They’re great for dieters because they have fewer calories than regular potatoes and also help you stay satisfied between meals. They’re often called a “slow carb” because they’re digested slowly. Additionally, they’re loaded with powerful nutrients that stabilize blood sugar, lower insulin resistance, and prevent calories from converting to fat. If you’re addicted to spuds this could be the perfect food for you!" - Bembu.com

20. Asparagus

"Asparagus aids weight loss in a few ways. First things first, it’s a natural diuretic, meaning it can help rid the body of excess fluid. Second, asparagus is a detox food, meaning it can help expel toxins and other waste from the body. Lastly, it benefits digestion by feeding the gut’s good bacteria (AKA probiotics). That’s not to mention that it’s a superfood that contains plenty of vitamins and minerals that help you all-around.
A lot of dieters like the way asparagus tastes and it’s very easy to prepare." - Bembu.com

Now that you know some of my old secretes I'm going to share with you a really great video in order to melt away that fat after Thanksgiving. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
