Complex Carbohydrates

The secret to choosing a food that “burns calories” while you are eating it, is to choose a food that is high in fiber. If you are serious about losing weight and improving your overall health, you should cut simple carbohydrates out of your diet. Yes, that means avoiding white rice, white pastas, white breads and sugary foods that have no fiber. If a food has carbohydrates but no fiber- then, leave it alone. Instead eat more brown rice, brown pastas, cereals, whole grain breads and fruits and vegetables, which will provide a slow steady of release throughout the day and burn calories during digestion.

Raspberries… Really?

Raspberry

While researching for this article, I was surprised to see how much of an effect raspberries had on burning calories. Basically, the raspberries are an easy calorie burning food because they are high in fiber, containing a whooping eight grams per serving. Because there is so much fiber, your digestive tract has to burn extra calories to move the fiber through your system, which results in a net calorie loss (which is a good thing for weight loss)! In addition, one cup of raspberries only contains 64 calories, states the USDA. Therefore, try to include this fruit in your daily diet as a snack to help with weight loss.

You will be surprised how much better you will feel if you take your diet and food choices seriously. In addition, you will also find that you will successfully lose weight with much less effort.
