Natural Fat Burning Foods

Questions and Answers

What are the best fat burning foods?
Posted by romer151

Hi, Romer!

With respect to "fat burning foods," there are three key ideas about nutrition to understand. Namely, the "thermic effect" of food, how to boost your metabolic rate, and the order of macronutrients your body prefers to use.

The three macronutrients of food are proteins, fats, and carbohydrates. However, the caloric cost for your body to use them significantly differs.

In relation to the thermic effect of food, refined (processed) carbohydrates and fats have about a 3% rate, which means that it requires only about 3 calories for your body to use (burn) 100 calories of refined carbohydrates and fats. By that, they are not considered fat burning foods.

Some natural (unprocessed) carbohydrates have about a 20% rate.

Proteins, however, have up to a 30% rate! So, they are considered the best fat burning foods.

Moreover, some proteins are even better than others are. We can call those super-charged proteins!

So, in terms of its thermic effect, protein has twice the power because your body must work harder to process proteins than to process either fats or carbs. (Drinking plenty of water helps your body do this.)

So, eating specific proteins can significantly rev up your metabolism and they are considered the best fat burning foods.

At the bottom of this reply, I have added links to free Internet resources for a list of fat burning foods that speed up metabolism, a list of foods that slow down metabolism, and the feeding frequency in relation to fat burning foods.

I hope this helps.

All my best wishes.

Which foods burn fat? ?

I just read this somewhere

"There are tons of foods that burn fat – it’s easy to lose weight fast if you eat certain things at certain times".

Can someone please tell me what are the type of foods i need to be eating and when, in order to burn fat?

Hi Praveen S,

ALL foods contain calories and when you eat more but burn less, then fat deposits increase. No matter how healthy you eat, it is just possible that your calorie intake increases.

So though certain foods help you to burn a greater number of calories than the calorie value of the food itself, thus resulting in a possible weight loss, the focus should be on eating the right kind of food and burning calories through movement and exercise.

However, that being said, let us turn our attention to the kind of foods that may be called as “fat burners”.

Foods that are rich in Vitamin C have the properties of acting as fat burners. Limes, lemons, oranges, grapefruit and vegetables like, broccoli, cabbage, celery, carrot, watermelon and apple fall into this category. Broccoli and cabbage contain high quantities of calcium and vitamin C, and is also fibrous.

What vitamin C does it dilutes the fat and thus renders it less effective. It also becomes easier for such fat to be flushed out of the system. Pectin is found in apples and mot fresh fruits. This substance is said to be able to limit the fat that is absorbed by the cells.

In addition to this , pectin helps in the absorption of watery substances. The reaction of the watery substances on the cells makes it release fat deposits.

Breakfast foods like Oatmeal, skimmed milk and whole grain cereal and even spicy foods containing peppers are considered as foods that burn fat. Oats are a good source of vitamins, minerals and fiber. The capsaicin present in peppers induces the body to produce more stress hormones which in turn revs the metabolic rate burning more calories in the process. Soy is the wonder product, which has chemicals, which help fat from being deposited and also helps to act on the fat deposits in the body by breaking them down. Soybeans enhance the body’s ability to do away with fat.

The juice of garlic or the oil of garlic has the same protective property towards body cells and catalyses the action of getting rid of body fat. Many Indians aware of this fact are mixing their atta with soy flour.

Black Tea, coffee, and green tea also perform the same function. Consuming these foods and doing exercise would increase the metabolic rate of the body. Since the metabolism is boosted and the foods themselves are deficit in calories, the energy and fat that is stored in the body help in the digestion process. In short such foods take longer to digest and require more energy to break them down. These foods are often termed as negative calorie foods. Such foods often contain a lot of water, high percentage of fiber and are low in fat.

Water has always been in the news. Not only is it a natural product, which suppresses appetite, flushes toxins and excess sodium, but is also known to have contributed to an increase in the metabolic rate. The liquids and solids present in soup is also said to have the same properties. Low fat yogurt has been touted to be a rich source of calcium, which helps in weight loss. The bottom line here is that your body has to be taught to burn fat efficiently. Exercise—increase your muscle density (this is the area where calories are burnt). Increase the Basal metabolic rate and burn those excess calories

Eating fruit can replace the need you feel for sugar. In fact, your body will respond positively to the infusion of natural sugars from fruits, and you will find yourself craving artificial sugars less over time. These fruits are among the best fat-burning and power foods.


With six grams of fiber in a medium-sized apple, you will help your digestive tract by eating one of these luscious fruits each day. The best part is that apples do not have any sodium or fat and are packed with vitamins and minerals. Filling up on one as a snack can take away your afternoon slump and help you burn fat.


While these fruits aren’t always in season, you should try to pick one up when you can. These fruits are wonderfully delicious and low in calories. They also have more than a single serving of vitamins A and C.


Tropical fruits often have disease-fighting properties to them. Pineapple contains bromelain, which is an enzyme that breaks down protein. Many toxin-flushing fasts use pineapple as one of the ways to rid the body of toxins, which helps with weight loss.

Other fat-burning fruits should become a regular part of your weight loss diet. They include:

* Oranges

* Lemons

* Cherries

* Papaya

* Limes

Vegetables as Fat Burning Foods

Vegetables also work well as fat-burning additions to your diet. In general, vegetables are low in fat but high in nutrients. Many vegetables, such as broccoli and celery, are so low in calories that many dieters consider them “free foods,” meaning that they do not add to your daily caloric intake. You can munch on them all you want. They will satisfy hunger and help you lose weight.


One of the most under-used vegetables, the artichoke also is one of the most flavorful and nutritious. A medium artichoke gives you more than four grams of protein and six grams of fiber. The traditional way to eat artichoke is to peel the leaves and dip them in butter, but they also work well sautéed, grilled, and in salads and casseroles.


Although they are used sparingly, mushrooms can be put in many dishes. Even if you don’t like the strong flavor of the portabella, putting small-cap mushrooms into your diet through tomato-based sauces, pizzas and other dishes really will ramp up the amount of B vitamins you receive. Mushrooms also contain large amounts of potassium, which help reduce the water-retention of your cells, a great tool in the weight loss battle.


Forget bickering over whether they’re a fruit or vegetable. Either way, tomatoes are a power food! They have more vitamins than most vegetables and include large amounts of lycopene, believed to fight cancer. Tomatoes are very low in calories given their watery content, which makes them a great for helping burn fat.

Remember that with vegetables, a more porous interior means that it has more water content, which is what you need when you’re trying to burn fat. These veggies are all great fat burning foods.

* Celery

* Carrots

* Rhubarb

* Asparagus

* Beets

* Turnips

* Green beans


Lovers of the ocean spoils should be excited to hear that seafood is one of the best sources of protein when you’re trying to burn more fat. Seafood is lower in fat and calorie content than land-roaming meats, and they often have higher water content as well.


One of the best sources of protein, shrimp is a great fat burner. An average portion of shrimp has more than 15 grams of protein and no carbs (as is true for most meats). Shrimp also can be cooked in such a variety of ways that it can become a dietary staple.


Canned or fresh, tuna offers a good deal of protein and has little cholesterol. This low-calorie food can help you get the protein – energy – you need to sustain your body without the added fat.

Questions and Answers

Which vitamins help burn fat and increase your metabolism?

I heard that there are some vitamins you can take to help you burn it off. Which ones are they?

Posted by Maria K

wilmer johnson

Vitamins cannot burn fat, nor can they increase metabolism. Rather, they give your body, muscles, and cells the background they need to help you repair and build muscle when you work out and diet. They are supplements to another diet plan. As much as some companies (the ones who are trying to make money off of you) would like you to believe it, a vitamin is not a diet plan by itself.

Best of luck.

What vitamins help burn fat?

I don"t want diet pills, want to know which vitamins, like A, B, C, ect.

Posted by WaitingForAnswers

wilmer johnson

There are really no specific vitamins that will increase fat burning to a noticable point. That falls into the hands of supplements (diet pills), which in my opinion don"t work to well themselves except for a small few.

Diet is the key to burning fat. Take in slightly less calories then what your body needs to maintain weight, and make sure you get most of those calories from good foods. Ex. Lean protein, Low glycemic carbs, and healthy fats. Another thing that you can do is to take your current daily diet, and spread it out over more meals. For example..if you are eating 3000 calories a day over 3 meals, that is 1000 Kcal per meal. Spread that out to 6 meals per day at 500 calories, and your body will be more likely to use most of those calories up without having to store such a huge surplus.

If your vitamin contains chromium pioclinate, it can help stabilize your blood sugar, resulting in a constant metabolic burn. I"d also advocate fish oil capsules, but I think that would be outside your vegan standards.

List of Foods that burn fat:

1. Fruits rich in vitamin C – Citrus Fruits: like limes, lemons, oranges, guava, grapefruit, papaya, sweet lime, tangerines and tomatoes are rich in Vitamin C and fibre and have fat burning properties so they may be called as FAT BURNING FOODS or FAT BURNERS or FIGHTERS.

Vitamin C helps the body process fat faster and also stimulates the carnitine amino acid which speeds up the body’s fat-burning capacity.

Vitamin C dilutes the fat and makes it less effective and helps in releasing the fat from the body.

2. Apples: Pectin in apple restricts the cells to absorb the fat; and also encourages water absorption from the food which helps in releasing the fat deposits from the body. The antioxidants in apples may help prevent metabolic syndrome, a condition marked by excess belly fat or an apple body shape.


Calcium Rich Dairy Products

Calcium in dairy products like milk, cheese and yogurt act as fat burner that can boost weight loss by increasing fat breakdown in fat cells. According to Professor Michael Zemel at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville, (Obesity Research, April 2004; vol 12; pp 582-590.) a dairy-rich diet with same calorie restriction can nearly double the rate of weight and fat loss. His research has shown that eating 3-4 servings of dairy products a day is more effective at enhancing weight loss efforts than calcium supplementation alone. Dairy products may therefore be termed as fat burning foods or fat burners.

The researchers found:

Overweight people who consumed 3 servings a day of calcium-rich dairy lost more belly fat than those who followed a similar diet minus two or more of the dairy servings. The calcium supplements didn"t work as well as milk.

4. Nuts help feel full while also increasing the body"s ability to burn fat, says author Jordi Salas-Salvado of the University of Rovira i Virgili in Reus, Spain.

5. Chilies: Foods containing chillies or cayanne pepper are considered to be as foods that burn fat. Chillies contain capsaicin that helps in increasing the metabolism. Capsaicin is a thermogenic food, so it causes the body to burn extra calories for 20 minutes after you eat the chilies.

6. Proteins: Protein rich foods and high fiber foods are the best as foods burning belly fat. Protein needs more energy to digest than fat as so eat low calorie dairy products, beans, whole grains, oatmeal, eggs, etc. As much as possible.

Lentils are high in protein and soluble fiber, two nutrients that stabilize blood sugar levels, therefore lentils are a great tummy flattener," according to Tanya Zuckerbrot, R.D., author of The F-Factor Diet.

7. Some of the other foods that may be included in the list of fat burning foods are asparagus, beet root, broccoli, cabbage, carrot, chillies, beans, soybeans, sweet potatoes, blueberries and watermelon.

What are fat burning foods?


I am trying to lose weight and I heard someone tell me to eat some fat burning foods to lose weight. But what are fat burning foods? How are they different from regular foods? And if possible can you give me a list of fat burning foods to help me? I heard some things like eat protein and drink water but no one told me why this is good for you. Thank you so much in advance for your help! :)

This is a great question and basically a fat burning food is a food that burns more calories than it contains. It also helps speed up your metabolism for great fat burning effect! You need a nice balance of carbs, fat, and protein. If you restrict too much of any one in particular, you body will will crave it. I"ve been researching losing weight for a long time now and I was able to lose 30 pounds in 3 months using simple nutritional advice and learning how the body works. Don"t do what many people do by eating one meal a day because it is the worst thing you could possibly do, believe me. Your body will slow down your metabolism because you are eating less and consuming less calories. You will lose weight as first but your body is built as a survival machine and it will try and keep you alive if you try to starve yourself. When your metabolism slows down, you will store fat and you will not LOSE weight fast. You have to eat food to lose weight. I know this sounds weird but any nutritionist, fitness trainer, and doctor will make you eat food in order to lose wight. Eat 3 meals a day and 3 snacks. Make sure you space them out 2 hours apart and drink plenty of water too. I"ve listed articles that help to burn fat and lose weight so focus on those foods like lean protein, vegetables, whole carbs..etc. Whatever you do, don"t go eating alot of sugary foods like cake, cookies, ice cream, fast food. I know it tastes good but it wont help you. Eat good clean food that will help raise your metabolism. You want to help boost your metabolism at all costs because that is your "fat burning engine." Focus on that and you will do just fine. The other important thing is you have to stay consistent. Don"t stop eating your 3 meals packed with good protein, some healthy carbs, and vegetables. Don"t stop snacking on healthy snacks in between either because that will help boost your metabolism. Also, don"t eat the same thing all the time, your body will get used to it and you will not lose as much weight so keep changing around your foods. For ex: Eat a yogurt for a snack one day, then a piece of fruit the next, then a handful of nuts, then a small salad…you get the idea. I go in much greater detail in the articles. By the way, an exercise program is good too. However, when you jog on the treadmill, don"t simply jog. Train like a sprinter for the olympics to lose weight. Sprint as fast as you can for about 30-60 seconds and then take a minute break by walking at a normal pace. Then repeat the process. This is called "interval training" and this will help get your heart pumping very fast and will burn calories better than just jogging. When working out, focus on big muscle groups. The biggest are legs, back, chest and abs. Every pound of muscle you gain burns about 50 calories a day so gaining some muscle will help burn calories. Hope this helps. Best of Luck!

Losing 10 lbs a month is a good and safe target. Any faster weight loss is likely to be temporary only and in most cases you regain it all.

Running, jogging, cycling, swimming, dancing, push ups, sit ups, squats, brisk walking and power walking all help for weight loss but dieting helps more.

You can always eat negative calorie foods for weight loss and below is a list of negative calorie foods that will boost your metabolism.

Negative Calorie Fruits:











Negative Calorie Vegetables:




cabbage (green)




Chile peppers (hot)




garden cress


green beans







These foods don"t actually have negative calories but when you eat these foods raw or slightly cooked your body burns more calories digesting and processing them than what is in the food itself.

For a healthy weight loss add some of these foods to your diet each day. Most of them are full of healthy nutrients.

Free List of Negative Calorie Foods

You eat an excess amount of calories. You get fat. We all know

that. But is there really such a thing as foods which make you lose


Today we"ll provide you with a free list of negative calorie foods,

foods that are supposed to burn up more calories in the process of

digesting them than are actually contained in the foods themselves.

Are there really such things as negative calorie foods?

The idea that certain foods could take more energy to digest them

than they actually provide in and of themselves certainly took the

diet industry by storm. The notion that you could eat from a list

of "wonder foods" and not only not put on weight but help counteract

some of the calories contained in the rest of your diet certainly

has an instant appeal.

The sad fact is, however, that all foods contain calories. Some,

not that many. However the body has one thing which actively works

against you. It"s the most efficient engine known to man. The

calories delivered by even the lightest foods render many times more

energy than is required to digest them.

There is one negative calorie food

To truly use more energy than a food provides, you"d in fact have to

be eating cardboard. 100% cellulose. And seeing that we humans

lack the enzymes to break it down (as opposed to cows that can

happily live on it), it would render zero calories. The process of

moving the cardboard through the body would take a small but

measurable amount of energy. The result? A true negative calorie

food. Naturally, it"s one we"d never recommend you use.

A free list of negative calorie foods

However, in the interest of completeness, here is a free list of

foods which are claimed by some to be negative calorie foods.

List of Negative Calorie Foods




green cabbage



celery root

celery chicory

hot chili peppers




garden cress


green beans

zucchini apple



lemon mango


pineapple raspberries

Food cannot burn fat. There is no food with a negative amount of calories. Any food you eat gives you either zero or a positive amount of fat.

Exercise (and, to a lesser extent, normal activity) is what burns fat.
