New Delhi: Regular exercise is key to building muscle and losing fat, but eating well and avoiding unhealthy foods are important in order to shed those extra kilos fast.
But, it's not just the food you eat, in fact the way you eat them matters when it comes to maximum fat-burning! Below are a few tips on how you should be eating these foods, considered best for weight loss:
Extremely low in calories and high in nutrients, tomatoes have plenty of reasons that can help you lose weight and slim down. Unlike other veggies, tomatoes are more nutritious when cooked. That's because cooking increases concentrations of lycopene, the predominant carotenoid found in tomatoes.
Who doesn't like to bite that juicy strawberry? While the idea of eating pre-sliced strawberries might seem easier and convenient, it's best to eat them whole or slice them right before eating. If you cut them much before eating, the fat-burning vitamin content of these sweet treats can be compromised due to prolonged exposure to oxygen.
Yes, you've heard the difference between regular and Greek yogurt. But, it's possible that you're prabably unaware about this magical trick – water that usually settles on the top of the container – from which you can get the most of fat-burning properties. Actually this 'water' is packed with protein, vitamins, and calcium. So, next time you open the lid and see this water, don't get rid of it!
