How to Burn Fat

Tuesday, November 13, 2012

Munch on one of these before you hit the gym!

Raw Coconut Water
Tend to, uh, glow a lot at the gym? Sip on some coco water before your workout. It has carbs and potassium to keep you fueled and hydrated.

Low-Fat Cheese on Wheat Toast and an Orange
The cheese gives you protein and calcium, which helps keep your muscles and bones healthy, while the whole wheat toast is a complex carb, which helps fuel your workout. What's up with the orange? Foods that contain vitamin C help metabolize fat faster and allows your bod to burn calories easier. Win-win.

Dried Fruit
Think: a box of raisins or little package of dried apples or bananas. The natural sugar in these will morph into energy for your body. If you need something more substantial, sprinkle them over protein-packed Greek yogurt.

This grain is packed with healthy carbs and protein to keep you feeling full and fueled through your workout. Don't like the taste? Oatmeal has similar benefits.
