You do not need to starve yourself to burn fat quickly. If anything, starving yourself leads to your body slowing down its metabolism rate. When that happens, your body burns fat a lot slower and when you eat, you gain fat even quicker. You need to eat smart. You need to eat food that reduces fat. They generally pack a lot of protein, fiber, and healthy carbs. They boost your metabolism and also make you feel full for the day. For a detailed guide, you can visit tasteaholics. Without further ado, here are a few meal ideas you can try out.
Broccoli and Feta Omelet with Toast is our personal favorite. It only takes 15 minutes to make, and it is very effective in burning fat. There is a good reason why breakfast is important. If you get it right, then you will be set for the rest of the day without craving or too much hunger.
You need some cooking spray, a cup of chopped broccoli, two large eggs (beaten), two tablespoons of feta cheese (crumbled), a quarter teaspoon of dried dill, and two slices of toasted rye bread.
First, coat the pan with cooking spray, and heat a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Put in the chopped broccoli and cook it for three minutes. Then, combine the eggs, feta, and the dill in another bowl. Add the mixture to the pan and cook for a few minutes. Flip the omelet to make sure it evenly cooks and repeat the process for about two minutes or until it is well cooked. Once ready, serve with toast on the side. The ingredient and amount listed are for one serving.
For something to wet your throat, we recommend the Spiced Green Tea Smoothie. It contains a metabolism-boosting compound that makes it super effective in burning fat. You can lose as much as six pounds in eight weeks just by drinking this.
You need a three-quarter cup of chilled strong green tea, one-eighth teaspoon of cayenne pepper, a few tablespoons of lemon juice, two teaspoons of agave nectar, a small pear with skin on but cut into pieces, two tablespoons of fat-free yogurt, and plenty of ice cubes. Stick them all into the blender and blend until smooth. You can drink it cold. This ingredient is for two servings, and it can take up to half an hour to prepare.
Dessert does need to be packed full of sugar. All you need is an excellent combination of chocolate and banana. While chocolate contains metabolism-boosting compounds, bananas are full of Resistant Starch. So, you can still enjoy a delicious dessert while still losing your weight.
You just need two tablespoons of semi-sweet chocolate chips and a small banana. You need to peel and cut the banana into small cubes, though. Then, just microwave the chocolate chip to melt it down. You can do that by putting them in a microwave-safe bowl, or a heavy-duty zip-top plastic bag. Microwave at high for about a minute, or until the brown goodness melts. Once done, just dip the banana in the chocolate and enjoy the dessert.
