Add These 4 Surprising Fat Burners to your day says Health Magazine. Pears, Grapefruit, Almonds, and Dark Chocolate.
PEARS: Rich in Fiber (one pear packs 15% of your daily recommended amount). Pears help you feel full and keep you from overeating. Eat a pear before a meal and keep the skin on as most of the good fiber is in the skin.
(also keeps you from having a shape like one)
GRAPEFRUIT: Eating half a grapefruit before each meal may help you lose weight. A compound in grapefruit helps regulate insulin,a fat storage hormone. Peel and segment and add to a spinach salad. It's also great with shrimp.
(important work here when we're talkin getting every possible fat cell out of storage)
ALMONDS: Eating a handful of almonds a day along with a healthy diet might help you zap fat. Dieting study participants who ate almonds daily for 6 months lost 18% of their body fat. They are a great snack - 22 almonds add up to one serving. Or chop them finely and add to oatmeal or yogurt.
(most lose the almonds before the 18% body fat but we like the phrase zap fat so we'll try to do better)
CHOCOLATE: Dark Chocolate and other foods high in antioxidants - may help prevent the accumulation of fat cells in the body. Melt a 1/2 ounce of dark chocolate in the microwave for 30 seconds and spread on a half of graham cracker, its just 98 calories.
(the key here is not repeat this action over and over and over)
Seriously, which of you babes already knew all this? Even about the pears?
