11 Surprising Foods You Didn’t Know Burn Fat

Red Peppers

How many of you love your hot peppers? While  hot cayenne peppers set your mouth on fire and make you sweat, red peppers also help  you lose weight. Here’s how they burn fat.Ever heard of cortisol? This is known as a  stress hormone. When you’re feeling on edge, your cortisol level shoots up. This leads to belly  fat storage. When you bite into a red pepper, the Vitamin C attacks your cortisol  and begins to reduce it. As a result, your belly fat will burn away slowly.Red peppers also contain something  called capsaicin. This increases the rate at which you burn your  fat. The great thing about red pepper is that they fit with an  assortment of delicious meals.I personally enjoy them mixed in with my stir fry, which can be made with other easy  ingredients right on your home stove.

Peanut Butter

A study from 2009 showed that nuts in general  will lower the risk of weight  gain and obesity in adults.You’ve probably heard more about peanut butter’s  protein content then its ability to burn fat. Well actually, it’s with the help of protein that our bellies burn the fat. This protein  also helps you recover from a workout.The only problem is finding the right  brand of peanut butter. The normal type of peanut butter is loaded with sugar,  salt and preservatives. What you want is an organic brand. Two tablespoons of  organic peanut butter holds only 2% of your daily recommended carbs and sodium. It  also carries 7% of your daily dietary fiber.So if you’re craving a midnight snack,  and you don’t want to gain as much weight, slather a bit of organic peanut  butter over some whole wheat bread.

Coffee

 Caffeine boosts your metabolism.  Now I know it’s not for everyone, but all you coffee drinkers should listen up.A hot cup in the morning is exactly what  your system needs to start burning fat. But you’re going to have to make some sacrifices.  That medium coffee with double cream and sugar, drop it. In order to burn fat,  you’ll need to drink it black.A study from all the way back in 2006 showed that  people who drink black coffee have a metabolism 16% higher than those who don’t drink it. The  higher your metabolism, the quicker you will lose weight. Not only that, but you can also enjoy  more food since your body breaks it down quicker.Another piece of research showed that lean  people who drank caffeine saw their fat burn 29% faster, whereas obese people  burn fat only 10% faster.
