Fat Burning Compatible Food #1
Say hello to hot peppers! Fresh is always best like chili peppers, habaneros and jalepnos but cayenne pepper is also a wicked secret weapon.
All these hotties have the secret ingredient known as Capsaicin. With ingestion your body will experience an increase in temperature and burn carbohydrates at an accelerate pace which is why it has been known to regulate blood sugar levels and current studies are being done on using it for diabetics.
After looking into this more I found some other very cool studies which show its ability to kill prostate cancer cells, leukemic cells and even lung cancer cells! It is also in a phase 2 trial to help treat osteoarthitis and post surgical pain.
Basically it’s pretty impressive and I don’t know how much you have experimented with cayenne pepper in your cooking but it is awesome on all meats, yams, potatoes, and even yogurt or nuts. Buy lots of it and use it as much as you can, you’ll get a kick out of it!
Fat Burning Compatible Food #2
It may be an acquired taste, or it just may be the fact that you haven’t really had high quality sashimi, but fish is a wicked way to lower your body fat. If you find an authentic Japanese restaurant try some sashimi which should not taste fishy and basically melt in your mouth (that is when you know you have found quality sashimi!).
Ok, so it doesn’t have to be raw but the omega 3 fatty acids found in raw fish can be arguably better than cooked fish. The link here is that Omega 3 fatty acids aka fish oil has been known to lower leptin levels in our bodies.
What are leptin levels?
The lower our levels of leptin in our body the faster our metabolisms are which means our bodies are burning calories just by including fish oil. In fact, a study by french researchers shows that men who replaced just 6 grams of fat in their diets with 6 grams of fish oil lost an average of 2lbs in just 12 weeks.
The good news is that you can also do this much easier by having a fish oil supplement and preferably one that is comprised of wild fish which are less exposed to toxins in our seas. One of the best in the market is AllMax Nutrition Omega 3 a or if you’re on a more serious budget you can try NOW Ultra Omega-3.

Good old natural oats. You got love the oats since they are a complex carbohydrate and high in soluble fiber.
What this means is that our bodies have to expend a whole lot of calories just to break it down and the soluble fiber means that it slows down our absorption of the carbs by our digestive tract meaning less chance that they will be stored as fat and more chance that we will be expending them quickly when we exercise.
So simple and yet so effective including oatmeal as part of your morning ritual is worth gold.
