Burn Calories Fast With These 6 Foods

Want to burn your calories fast? Just add these 6 foods to diet to speed up metabolism

International Business Times

Take a look at some of these nutrient-rich foods to increase your metabolism.

There are a number of drinks and other products in the market that claim to boost your metabolism. But the effectiveness of these products is, however, questionable. What goes without saying is that natural foods are the best. If you didn’t know, these vitamins and nutrient rich foods can actually boost your metabolism and give your body the sustenance it needs to survive and thrive.

Beans

Beans are loaded with dietary fibre which lowers the insulin levels and improves insulin sensitivity over time. This in turn, helps your body to store less fat. It serves as an excellent food for boosting metabolism.

Oily fish

Oily fishes such as salmon and tuna are rich in omega-3 fatty acids. These fatty acids reduce resistance to leptin – a hormone that helps in determining how fast fat is burned.

It also balances blood sugar and helps in reducing inflammation and both of them helps in regulating metabolism. So, oily fish is a great choice for boosting your metabolism.

Cruciferous vegetables

Cruciferous vegetables such as cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, and Brussels sprouts contain essential nutrients like calcium and vitamin C that will speed up your metabolism. Apart from it, they also have high water and fibre content. This combination increases the ability of the body to burn fat.

Hot peppers

You may have heard that spicy foods help in boosting your metabolism and it is true. The compound, capsaicin that makes peppers hot helps your body burn more energy. It even curbs your hunger for at least three hours after you eat. It serves as an excellent food for increasing metabolism.

Berries

Berries stabilize the glucose levels and decrease the body fat content showing beneficial effects on metabolism. Eating red berries also hasa positive impact on cardiovascular health.

Citrus fruits

Citrus fruits are great for digestion. They are low in sugar and contain an antioxidant that helps in lower your blood sugar response after meals. The vitamin C in citrus fruits helps in faster metabolism.

The All-Day Fat-Burning Diet: The 5-Day Food-Cycling Formula That Resets Your Metabolism To Lose Up to 5 Pounds a Week

Author of the bestselling The All-Day Energy Diet, Yuri Elkaim, nutritionist and renowned fitness expert, posits that no combination of calorie cutting, exercise, or restrictive dieting can help people unless they set their bodies to burn fat all day, all night, 24/7. His solution is the 5-Day Food-Cycling Formula, which resets your metabolism to lose up to 5 pounds per week.
What is the 5-Day Food-Cycling Formula? It is 21 days of prescriptive eating and exercise that lead to weight loss and the beginning of total fitness. The 5-day cycle is Day 1: Low Carb Day / Day 2: 1-Day Feast [Not what you think. SK] / Day 3: 1-Day Fast / Day 4: Regular Calorie Day / Day 5: Low Calorie Day. Repeat 4 times.6
Elkaim asserts that today’s overweight epidemic is due not only to inappropriate eating but to numerous environmental stressors. To remove some stressors, his food lists exclude the following common allergens: caffeine, dairy, wheat, rye, oats (unless gluten-free), refined sugar and agave syrup, most packaged foods, fast foods, soy, and vegetable oils. There are many delicious foods to eat (including beans and fit fats). Small amounts of goat milk products, plus ditto honey and maple syrup are also allowed.

 

What happens to 5-day cycling when you reach your 22nd day? In the final chapter, “How To Stay Lean For Life”, Elkaim draws on your 21 day experience and focuses your attention on being a “body whisperer”. He gives 3 options for modifying food-cycling and includes 10 Fat Loss Commandments.

 7 Late in 2016, Rodale Books published Elkaim’s The All-Day Fat-Burning Cookbook, containing over 125 recipes. (They look delicious.)

 

Siri Says: With the 5-Day Food-Cycling, Elkaim elevates “food as medicine” and “eating on purpose” to a new level. I acknowledge his precise science- and experience- based directives as the new way to weight loss. 5-Day Food-Cycling really is a formula for whole body fitness. Elkaim encourages vegetarian protein sources.

Researchers Find Niacin In Meteorites

Vitamins from space? Talk about a niacin flash. Scientists have discovered Vitamin B3 in meteorites. What’s next, the secrets of immortality? Read more from Live Science.

An essential nutrient for life on Earth also cooks up in space, a new study finds.

Karen Smith Crushing MeteoritesWhile scientists aren’t yet sure of the exact recipe, they think radiation-blasted ice powered the chemical reactions that produced vitamin B3, or niacin, early in the solar system’s history. A stew of dust and ice created key molecules for life in this planetary kitchen, which all later clumped into asteroids and comets, suggests the new study, published April 13 in the journal Geochimica et Cosmochimica Acta.

Some researchers think impacts on early Earth could have delivered chemicals essential for life, such as amino acids and vitamins like niacin. Today, niacin isn’t made by the human body, and must be consumed in the diet. [7 Wild Theories on the Origin of Life]

Vitamin B3 is essential to metabolism and likely very ancient in origin,” lead study author Karen Smith of Pennsylvania State University said in a statement.

Smith and her co-authors discovered vitamin B3 in eight carbon-rich meteorites. (When fragments of an asteroid fall to Earth, they’re called meteorites.) The meteorites are all CM-2 carbonaceous chondrites, one of the most common meteorite types found on Earth.

The meteorite’s vitamin B3 levels ranged from 30 to 600 parts per billion, the study reports. Related molecules discovered in the meteorites include pyridine carboxylic acids and pyridine dicarboxylic acids.

The amount of vitamin B3 in the meteorites was linked to how much their parent asteroids were altered by water, Smith said. “We discovered a pattern — less vitamin B3 was found in meteorites that came from asteroids that were more altered by liquid water,” she said. Several chemical and mineral traces in meteorites show how much an asteroid was altered by water.

The researchers also tested their theory of how vitamin B3 may form in space with laboratory experiments. “We showed that the synthesis of vitamin B3 might be possible on ice grains,” Smith said.

Earlier research has also shown vitamin B3 can be produced non-biologically on Earth, Smith said. The team plans further experiments to explore how the vitamin can form on ice grains in space.

Just One Session Of Exercise Can Improve Metabolic Health In Overweight Patients With Insulin Sensitivity

Exercise

Exercise

University of Michigan researchers has examined the effect of exercise on fat accumulation in a new study involving five obese women. In one session the women overate and did not exercise; in a follow-on session they overate and did exercise.

Researchers found that:

* the body’s fat-burning oxidation rate was reduced after one day of overeating;

* conversely, just one session of exercise increased the rate of fat-burning oxidation; and

* exercise increased the amount of fat that would eventually be stored in the muscle.

The findings indicate that even one bout of exercise helps to reduce the fat by-products inside the muscle, which affects the insulin sensitivity. The findings also suggest that a single session of exercise ‘steers’ muscle fat towards oxidation, thereby avoiding the accumulation of fat by-products.
