We all want to lower the levels of fat in our bodies and to look better and these tips will help you do just this.
Break Down Fats by Adding Vinegar to Your Meals
According to the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, vinegar can help you to lose weight and decrease the amount of body fat that you have by ten percent.
Vinegar contains acetic acid, which increases the number of proteins used to help break down fat, which helps to decrease fat storage in the abdominal region.
There are many ways to increase your consumption of vinegar. You can soak veggies in a teaspoon of vinegar and a quart of water before steaming your vegetables.
You can also marinate your meats or use oil and vinegar as a dressing for your salads to maximize the fat burning potential of vinegar.
Rather than reaching for an antihistamine the next time you experience a bout of hay fever, opt for natural medicines.
Researchers have found that antihistamines can boost your appetite and reduce your fat metabolism.
The Journal of Obesity reports that men who used antihistamines to treat allergies are 55 percent more likely to gain weight during allergy season than those who do not use antihistamines.
Trim Down with Salads
Eating a salad with each meal can help make you feel fuller longer and aid in weight loss.
In addition to this, using a dressing that contains low-sodium soy sauce, olive and honey can improve the body's ability to burn fat, according to research performed by the University of Illinois.
Honey contains antioxidants and prevents omega 3 oils from oxidizing, which helps them remain effective to aid in weight loss.
For a tasty dressing combine 2 parts olive oil, one part soy sauce and one part honey.
Massage Your Belly
The Iranian Journal of Health and Physical Activity reports that massaging your abdominal region for fifteen to twenty minutes each day can help decrease the amount of fat in the abdominal region.
Massage increases local metabolism and increases fat burning in the abdominal region.
After dinner, lie down on your bed and massage the abdominal region for fifteen to twenty minutes to help decrease abdominal fat.
Protein Shakes Are Your Friend
Drinking a protein shake can increase your metabolism for hours according to Singapore Dore Aesthetics.
When choosing a protein shake, opt for one that contains whey protein and drink it post workout to boost your body's ability to burn calories.
Whey protein, according to a Swiss study, reaches your muscles faster than other types of proteins.
If you need to slow down digestion and prevent hunger pangs, try a drink that contains casein.
Avoid Low Fat Snacks
A study published in the Journal of Marketing Research showed that those who consume low-fat snacks end up consuming 28 percent more calories than those who ate healthy snacks.
Low-fat snacks typically contain around ten percent less fat than regular snacks; however, many dieters think these snacks contain less than 40 percent of the fat of a typical snack. Low-fat snacks do not necessarily mean low calorie.
