So your going to the gym but still think there is more you could be doing in your spare time?
Some fruits are naturally high in sugars so if they’re eaten in excess, the body will convert said sugar into fat. So Below are some easy, available fruit you can introduce into your diet to help with metabolism, deliver high anti-oxidants and some are said to even help prevent cancer!! They say diet constitutes 80% towards losing weight and getting in shape so my top 5 are;
We love an Avo at Fitness Hacks! They deliver a whopping amount of Omega 9 fatty acid, the same stuff can be found in olive oil and macadamia nuts. Avo’s speed the rate which the body converts fats into energy and boosts metabolism.
Ze Coconut ja? Is rich with medium chain triglycerides (MCFAs) I know I know i’m a geek.. MCFA’s basically can increase the liver’s rate of metabolism by up to 30 percent! The best thing is that they keep you full so you’re less likely to snack on junk food. Coconut oil, coconut milk (not the low fat stuff), coconut flour, and shredded (unsweetened) coconut all contain MCFAs.
Sweet sweet lemons, excellent liver de-toxifier. Maintaining the health of the liver is essential to let it perform its role of digesting and burning fat.
In one study at Johns Hopkins University, women who ate grapefruit daily shed almost 10Kg on average in only 13 weeks, without changing anything else in their diet or lifestyle! We recommend this with regular exercise though..
The big tommy-ah-toes are packed with Vitamin C and stimulate the production of the amino acid, carnitine. Research has shown carnitine helps speed the body’s fat-burning capacity by one third.
Heeeeeeeeeere come the facts!!
Not only will these fruits help with weight loss, they have plenty of other health benefits too. Avocado helps prevent heart disease. Coconuts help prevent cancer. Grapefruit gives the liver a boost. Lycopene is a powerful antioxidant that studies show cuts the risk of heart disease by 29 percent.
Thanks for reading and have a grand old weekend.
