Eat These Foods to Burn Belly Fat
Hey guys, Cassey here So, as you probably know, eating clean is such a big and really important part of a healthy lifestyle. You cannot out-train a bad diet Just because you do the 100 burpee burnouts and the 1000 squats challenge does not mean you can go ahead and stuff your face with a burger, fries and a coke. So if you want to look good and feel good, feel strong, healthy and fit you’ve got to feed your body, the right things.
The right things are foods that are real that are unprocessed That come from the earth with ingredients that you can actually understand. I call these foods nutritiously dense. These are foods that pack in a double or triple win punch, (punches the air). So today we’re going to share foods that actually help you burn belly fat,
These foods are typically found in two categories, And the first category are foods that help prevent blood sugar spikes. Second, one food that help speed up your metabolism, examples of foods in the first category, which will help prevent these blood sugar spikes are foods like salmon, avocado, olive oil beans and almonds.
All these foods are high in either protein fat or fiber, which means it takes longer for them to get digested.
Meaning, this will actually help prevent a sharp increase in blood sugar spikes. So if you have no idea what blood sugar is, it literally is the sugar in your blood. When you eat foods like doughnuts or white, bread, white rice, I don’t know cronuts and all that kind of sugary desserty stuff. You will have a rapid increase in your blood sugar, So this spike actually makes your hormones go out of whack, and they go crazy and then you get an increase in your abdominal fat. That’s why I always tell you to stay away from processed foods.
Well, here’s a really cool fact! So if you actually eat these foods that do not increase your blood sugar like crazy, along with carbs, for example, which are generally absorbed by your body, a lot quicker, then it really slows down the whole process of the absorption and the digestion. So, another reason why these foods are awesome for burning belly fat is because it actually takes more energy or calories to digest the food
When you eat fat or carbs, it takes about five to 15% of the calories in the food to actually digest it. Whereas with protein get this, you bring about 20 30% of the calories in the food.
Why well, protein is made up of amino-acids, and the amino-acids are bound together by peptide bonds. These bonds are really hard, basically to break apart. So, your stomach, your body, has to work extra hard to physically break them down, And that is why you burn more calories when you eat protein.
Also, because these foods are high protein and fiber, they keep you fuller longer, so you don’t over eat. This is extremely important because I feel like a lot of times. People say “. Oh, I’m eating healthy, I’m eating oatmeal and kale chips and chicken, ” or whatever. But if you eat too much an excess of calories is still an excess of calories which will cause you to gain weight All right. Let’s do the second category. These are foods that will help increase your metabolism, So foods like green tea, cayenne, pepper, vinegar and foods high in protein like eggs, meat and fish
So, how much does it actually burn A cup of green tea or a teaspoon of cayenne? Pepper can help you burn about 10 or 20 extra calories a day, But remember that it takes a deficit of 3500 calories to burn up one pound of fat Which, by the way, this is totally random, and I just learned it do. You know where fat goes when you burn it.
Take a guess right now, put it in the comments. What do you think? What do you think? Okay? Well, I was just watching the side show and I read some articles, most of the fat that you burn. Isn’t just let go through your urine or your sweat. It’s let go through your breath.
So, there’s like fat breath when you are losing weight.
Isn’t that craziness crazy, So anyway, adding these types of foods into your diet will help. But if you really want to change your body, you’ve got to incorporate exercise too. It’s all about that healthy lifestyle as a package Exercise is really important, not just because you are burning calories and burning fat, and things like that. I want you to increase your muscle mass. This is essential because when you have more muscle in your body, you’re burning more calories at rest than if you had less muscle.
Yes, It is all built in And see you gotta to get it moving and the whole body works as one, it flows. So, a really great way to increase muscle mass is to do strength, training. Now this doesn’t mean you have to go to the gym and lift weights
This means you can just use your body, your body weight, to increase your muscle mass. So, when you’re doing POP Pilates with me, this counts And also fuel up with your protein and your carbs after your workout, and then your body will have the building blocks to create that beautiful lean muscle,
And if you’re doing all that, and you’re feeling, you still have some lower belly fat. Well guys, I told you this in the last video not sleeping enough could be the culprit. Just gotta check, Instagram, Twitter and Snapchat and promise I’ll go sleep after that.
When you’re not sleeping enough, your body thinks you’re stressed And when you’re stressed your levels of cortisol will increase And you know what happens when that happens. You get lower belly fat Yeah, it’s unfortunate, but it’s true.
So make sure you got to bed you let your muscles relax, You let your mind, relax and everything will start flowing So guys. That was a lot of information, but to summarize real quickly, number one. I want you to eat foods that are high in protein and fiber so that you’re burning more calories when you are actually digesting plus it keeps you full longer, Go ahead and add a green tea and cayenne pepper for that little bit of extra burn. Do not overeat, even if it is good food because extra calories is still extra calories.
It will cause you to gain weight, increase your muscle mass by doing more strength, training exercises with me And finally, sleep more Totally. The easiest thing out of all this, So do one at a time.
