It is important to know which foods help you burn fat, and which ones prevent you from burning fat. This is helpful not only to look better, but to improve your health and lessen the risk of developing serious health issues.
The first step is to cut down on fast food and other processes convenience foods. Even though they are a quick and easy source of food if you have a busy lifestyle, they end result will not be a pretty sight. A better alternative would be to take 2 or 3 days a week, and prepare food in advance which you can place into containers and simply heat up the required serving size. This method also helps you plan your calorie intake in advance.
The reason you should cut down on carbs when you are trying to lose weight is to assist the fat burning process. The body uses an enzyme known as hormone-sensitive lipase (HSL) to break down fat in the cells and use it as energy. However, this only happens when insulin levels in the bloodstream are low. Thus, when you eat carbs and it causes your blood sugar levels to spike, too much insulin is released and HSL cannot perform its duties. When considering which carbs to include in your diet, look at foods that are slow releasing, such as whole grains, fruits and veggies. Many processed foods that contain a lot of salt, also have a lot of calories. Consuming too much salt can lead to water retention and ineffective weight loss.
