Eat. Burn Fat.
The fall season is officially here, and it brings with it a ton of unique flavors to light up your taste buds.
But which fall foods will keep you healthy? And more importantly, which foods will keep your weight loss goals on track?
One of the best approaches to eating for weight loss, regardless of the time of year, is to choose foods that are naturally metabolism enhancing. A lot of foods contain vitamins and nutrients that speed up your metabolism during digestion, increasing the number of calories and amount of fat your body burns.
Some of the basics to look for are things like protein, fiber, and omega-3 fatty acids. But in addition to the basics, a lot of foods contain certain vitamins, phytonutrients, and antioxidants that are especially effective fat-burners.
Today I’m reviewing my top 5 fall foods for weight loss. If you want to enjoy the season without putting on the pounds, check these out.
Top 5 Fat Burning Foods for the Season
Beets make for great fall salads or hearty side dishes. Besides being packed full of flavor, beets also contain a certain phytonutrient, called betalain, that has natural detoxifying properties. I always recommend natural detoxifying foods over extreme detox fads, and removing extra toxins from your body will make your metabolism more efficient.
This fall food list wouldn’t be complete without something pumpkin related. Pumpkin seeds are a great snack to eat on a fat-burning, weight loss diet. Not only do they contain a little protein, they’re also high in monounsaturated fats that have been shown to help you burn more fat and redistribute belly fat away from your midsection.
