6 Fat-Fighting Super Foods

The best news we’ve heard yet this year: Chocolate helps boost our metabolism.  While calories are the key to diet success (or failure), certain ingredients can help speed up your slim-down. “Foods stimulate the body to produce hormones.” Explains Jonny Bowden, PhD, CNS, author of The 150 Healthiest Foods on Earth. “Some of those hormones coax your metabolism into fat-burning mode, and others make it sluggish and more apt to store fat.”

 

DARK CHOCOLATE

Studies suggest that daily consumption of 1.5oz of dark chocolate (70% cocoa or higher) reduces the stress hormone cortisol. Stress has been linked to causing a sluggish metabolism.  A study done by the Archives of Internal Medicine found that adults who consume chocolate regularly are actually thinner than those who do not.  This seems like a pretty sweet study to me!

 

Other unexpected fat -fighting super foods include EGGS, PEANUTS, SESAME SEEDS, YELLOW BELL PEPPER, WHEY PROTEIN SMOOTHIES (such as Wellness International’s ProXtreme) and of course we have to add in WATER.
