5 Fat-Burning Food Every Man Should Eat
Effective Fat-Burning Food To Include In Your Meals
When going after a fitness goal, it’s only normal to be picky with the food you take. However, that doesn’t mean you have to starve yourself. What you need is a guide on which food can also help you burn more fats, instead of gaining them.
And that’s exactly what I’ve got here just for you!
Natural Sweetener: Monk Fruit
According to DiSpirito, most of the sweeteners available in the market are far from being calorie-free and natural. These artificial sweeteners can also throw off your insulin production, and ultimately slow down weight loss.
He recommends getting raw Monk Fruit, which can naturally boost flavor.
Dairy Alternative: Almond Milk
While drinking milk is an important habit, it can also mess all your hard work in burning excess fat. DiSpirito shares the key, which is replacing your everyday milk with unsweetend almond milk. It can increase your calcium and Vitamin D intake.
Not to mention, unsweetened food are just around 30 to 60 calories per serving.
Gluten-Free Protein: Chicken Breast
Lean meats like chicken or turkey breast are effective fat-burning food that fire up your metabolism. All because breaking down lean meat makes your metabolism work so hard, it burns calories while you digest.
Alkaline Food: Beer
Nowadays, many athletes and nutrition experts like DiSpirito are adopting a high-alkaline diet of non-acidic fat-burning food. Because aside from reducing inflammation, it can also help prevent Alzheimer’s.
And while he also recommends high-alkaline food like broccoli, tempeh, almonds, and quinoa, beer is his favorite.
Microbiotic Food: Onions and Garlic
The microbiota in your gut needs to always be in perfect balance, says DiSpirito. Otherwise, you won’t be able to extract the right amount of nutrients from the food you eat, and burn those calories.
DiSpirito’s best bet are onions and garlic because they’re such easy meal additions, and are rich in inulin — a good bacteria-fueling prebiotic fiber. – Source
