A list and summary of what fat burning foods are and why they can help some people lose weight without feeling hungry.
With so many diets out there in the world it’s hard to know which one will truly help with weight loss. There are low carbohydrate diets, low fat diets, liquid diets, fasting, and every other type of diet based on just about every food imaginable. There’s the popcorn diet, the peanut butter diet, cabbage soup diet, an ice cream diet, and even a beer diet.
One health plan that seems promising and has worked for others to lose weight is based on fat-burning foods. The book Fat Burning Foods by Judy Jameson goes into detail as to why fats are bad and a diet consisting of 65% complex carbohydrates is much better. For those who are allergic to wheat or prefer a higher protein diet, this probably won’t be something that appeals to them, but being able to eat as much as one wants of the top foods that supposedly burn fat is quite enticing for many dieters.

What Fat-Burning Foods Are
These are foods that are so low in calories that the body burns more calories just to chew and digest them than the foods themselves have. The foods listed are also good sources of fiber that help many people to feel full longer. Hunger and a lack of food variety are usually the main reason most people stop a certain diet.
Fat Burning Fruits
The fruits listed here are high in vitamins yet low in calories. They can be eaten in any quantity until one feels satisfied. The list of fruits that can help burn fat includes apples, apricots, blackberries, blueberries, cantaloupe, cherries, cranberries, grapefruit, grapes, honeydew, lemons, limes, mangoes, nectarines, oranges, papaya, peaches, pears, pineapple, prunes, raspberries, strawberries, tangerines, tomatoes and watermelon.
Fat Burning Vegetables
These fat-burning vegetables should be eaten raw when possible or lightly steamed or sauteed to retain as many vitamins as possible. Like the fat-burning fruits, quantities are unlimited and includes artichokes, asparagus, beets, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, celery, corn, cucumbers, eggplant, green beans, kale, leeks, lettuce, mushrooms, okra, onions, parsley, peas, peppers, pumpkin, radishes, red cabbage, sauerkraut, scallions, spinach, squash, string beans and turnips.
Fat Burning Proteins
Most sources of protein are too high in calories and fat to be on the list of foods that can be eaten in any quantity. The diet restricts other proteins like chicken and turkey to five ounces a day. Red meat should only be eaten twice a week. Cod, crab, flounder and lobster is safe to eat until one is satiated.
The foods listed above can be eaten any time and in any amounts until the dieter feels satisfied. They can be mixed and matched and enjoyed any time. Although raw is preferred, some of these foods should be cooked, such as the fish, pumpkin, Brussels sprouts, and others.
How This Diet Helps With Weight Loss
Any diet that restricts one food group or greatly reduces it will surely allow a person to lose weight. And, though there are other foods on the Fat Burning Food Diet, the ones listed above are at the core of it. There are also beans, rice, pasta, legumes, chicken, and other healthy foods listed. Even so, some people may tire of tasteless nonfat cheeses, the lack of butter on their bread or veggies, and it may be too low in fat for some.
Overall this diet plan is based on foods that are healthy for the human body. Of course, each person is different and should consult their physician before going on any diet.
