Coffee is one of the most popular beverages worldwide.
It's a great source of caffeine, which can enhance mood and improve mental and physical performance. To get the fat-burning benefits of caffeine without the potential side effects, such as anxiousness or insomnia, aim for 100–400 mg per day. This is the amount found in about 1–4 cups of coffee, depending on its strength.
2. Fatty fish
Fatty fish is delicious and incredibly good for you.
Salmon, herring, sardines, mackerel and other oily fish contain omega-3 fatty acids, which have been shown to reduce inflammation and decrease heart disease risk.
In addition, omega-3 fatty acids may help you lose body fat.
Eggs are a nutritional powerhouse.
Although egg yolks used to be avoided due to their high cholesterol content, whole eggs have actually been shown to help protect heart health in those at increased risk of disease. In fact, one of the reasons eggs are so filling may be due to the boost in calorie burning that occurs during protein digestion
4. Coconut oil
Coconut oil is loaded with health benefits.
Adding coconut oil to your diet appears to increase "good" HDL cholesterol and decrease your triglycerides, in addition to helping you lose weight.
Unlike most oils, coconut oil remains stable at high temperatures, making it ideal for high-heat cooking.
Consuming up to 2 tablespoons of coconut oil daily may help maximize fat burning.
5. Green Tea
Green tea is an excellent beverage choice for good health.
Studies suggest that it may help reduce heart disease risk and protect against certain types of cancer.
Drinking up to four cups of green tea daily may provide a number of health benefits, including potentially increasing the amount of calories you burn.
6. Whey protein
Whey protein is pretty impressive.
It's been shown to promote muscle growth when combined with exercise and may help preserve muscle during weight loss.
In addition, whey protein seems to be even more effective at suppressing appetite than other protein sources.
7. Apple cider vinegar
Apple cider vinegar is an ancient folk remedy with evidence-based health benefits.
It's been credited with reducing appetite and lowering blood sugar and insulin levels in people with diabetes. Including apple cider vinegar in your diet may help you lose body fat. Start with 1 teaspoon per day diluted in water
8. Chilli peppers
Chili peppers do more than add heat to your food.
Their powerful antioxidants may reduce inflammation and help protect your cells from damage. What's more, this compound may also help you burn more calories and lose body fat.
9. Oolong tea
Oolong tea is one of the healthiest beverages you can drink.
Although it receives less press than green tea, it has many of the same health benefits, thanks to its content of caffeine and catechins.
Small studies in men and women suggest that drinking oolong tea increases metabolic rate and promotes weight loss. What's more, one study found that oolong tea increased calorie burning twice as much as green tea did.
10. Full fat Greek yogurt
Full-fat Greek yogurt is extremely nutritious.
First, it's an excellent source of protein, potassium and calcium.
Research suggests that high-protein dairy products can boost fat loss, protect muscle during weight loss and help you feel full and satisfied. Eating Greek yogurt on a regular basis may provide a number of health benefits.
11. Olive oil
Olive oil is one of the healthiest fats on earth.
In a small study in 12 postmenopausal women with abdominal obesity, eating extra virgin olive oil as part of a meal significantly increased the number of calories the women burned for several hours.
To incorporate olive oil into your daily diet, drizzle a couple of tablespoons on your salad or add it to cooked food.
