A Simple 3-Step Formula To make A Fat-Burning Meal

STEP 1: Select green and/or fibrous vegetables

Green Fibrous Vegetables

  • Asparagus
  • Green beans
  • Broccoli
  • Spinach
  • Dark Green Lettuce
  • Green or red pepper
  • Cucumber
  • Peas
  • Snow peas
  • Artichoke
  • Cabbage
  • Eggplant
  • Radishes
  • Cauliflower
  • Tomato

 Combine that with one of the lean proteins. These lean proteins have a thermo effect on the body, increasing the metabolism and even suppressing the appetite.

Lean protein:

  • chicken breast
  • turkey breast
  • very lean red meat such as top round and lean sirloin (grass fed is especially nutritious)
  • almost all types of fish
  • shellfish and other seafood
  • egg whites (whole eggs in moderation)
  • Beans, especially navy, pinto and black beans.

STEP 3: Add natural starchy carbs or grains to your meal, in an amount that you feel your body would tolerate. (some people have a carb-intolerant body type; in that case fruits would be a great replacement)
