Foods that makes you shrink!

Always hungry, but want to shift those last few stubborn pounds so you’re beach ready?
We’ve discovered some secret foods which will actually make you burn calories. Read on to be amazed.

  1. The darker the better – Dark Chocolate, 70% cocoa or more. Studies have found ingredients in chocolate actually reduce levels of the stress hormone Cortisone. Cortisone in excess can be harmful to the body’s digestive system, flooding the body with excess glucose it does not need.
  2. Eggs, Eggs, Eggs – Eggs contain all the essential amino acids needed to build muscle tissue. As muscle burns fat quickly, the more muscle you have, the more calories you burn.
  3. Smoothie for longer – When introducing a smoothie in to your day, make sure you add a dose of whey protein. This contains a muscle-building protein which will help reduce the loss of lean muscle mass. It will also help you stay fuller for longer.
  4. Vitamin C – Make sure you have enough Vitamin C in your diet, whether it’s from raw yellow peppers or an orange. This will help produce the hormone Carnitine which helps muscles use up the fat in your body for energy. Get juicing.
  5. Peanut Buttery good – Although peanuts are calorie dense, by introducing a small amount into your diet every day, these little gems can help increase your metabolic rate. You may even treat yourself to a scoop of peanut butter in your shake… !
  6. Any finally the most effective way to torch those calories, WATER!

Squeeze a little lemon juice in your water for a fast way to drop pounds. Lemon juice not only encourages healthy digestion by loosening toxins in your digestive system, but also relieves bloating and indigestion.  Drinking water and lemon juice can actually help fight hunger cravings because of the fibre within.

Add the above in to your daily consumption and see the difference it could make to you.
