It’s the time of year when fitness participation among women takes a bit of a nosedive. The New Years’ resolutions usually worn off by now, and summer and bikini weather are still too far away to overcome the exercise dread that many women feel. Also, because there’s less daylight, we tend to just have less energy than we do during other times of the year. But our cellulite doesn’t care about the amount of daylight, so it’s helpful to pay a little bit of attention to your diet even if you’re not training for the Iron Woman triathlon just yet.
There is quite an abundance of weight loss tips and diets that work running around in the fitness, health, wellness, and weight loss world. There are many diets (for our purposes, we will define “diet” here as a short-term change in your normal eating habits to produce a weight loss result) that will help you lose a bit of weight, at least for a short while. People have put together all sorts of programs to help you control your body weight and body fat percentage.
But for how long? If you don’t enjoy life while you’re dieting, I guarantee you won’t be on your diet for long. It’s just our nature. We may agree to suffer, but only if we know somewhere in the back of our minds that it will be temporary. But lasting body mass control and healthy living depends on developing lasting, positive lifestyle habits.
Here’s where fat burning foods for women come in. As the name suggests, fat burning foods help set up the metabolic conditions for your body to use fat for fuel, rather than sugars. The result is that you don’t store fat at nearly the same rate as in the reverse condition.
The fat burning food recipe is simply this: eat meats and vegetables, seeds and nuts, some fruits, very little starch (bread, rice, cereal, potatoes), and no sugar. While it may sound difficult, it turns out that natural, healthy, fat burning foods are delicious without all the added crap.
