According to nutritionists and food experts, foods that have high vitamin C content tend to burn fats fast. These include the following fruits:

  • Lime
  • Lemon
  • Oranges
  • Grapefruit
  • Watermelon
  • Apple

The vegetables include:

  • Broccoli
  • Cabbage
  • Celery
  • Carrot

The importance of vitamin C is that it has the ability to dilute the fat in the body, hence making it lesser effective in the body. And because of this it is easier for the body to flush out, or eliminate such fats.

Certain fruits like apples contain something known as Pectin, which is a substance that is known to regulate the fat being absorbed by the cells of the body. Pectin also promotes the absorption of watery substances in the body. This then brings about the release of the deposits of fat on the cells.

Then there are the foods that one consumes for breakfast such as:

  • Oatmeal
  • Skimmed milk
  • Whole grain cereal

These are considered as sources of vitamins, minerals and fibre. These promote the break down of fat in the body. In fact, they tend to energise the body, promoting a higher metabolic rate.

Peppers and some other spices contain a substance called capsaicin that is said to encourage the body to produce more stress hormones. This increases the potential metabolic rate, which eventually leads to burning more calories.

Another fat burning food is Soy. Food experts consider this to be wonder food, as it contains chemicals that prevent fat from being deposited on the cells, breaking them down completely. Garlic juice and garlic oil has proven to have certain properties that protect the cells and catalyse the process of ridding the body of fat content.

Other foods that burn fat include:

  • Black Tea
  • Coffee
  • Green Tea
  • Cabbage
  • Celery
  • Carrots
  • Low fat cheese
  • Low fat yogurt
  • Water
  • Jalapenos
