Fat fighting foods

Eggs: Eggs contain the vitamin B12, a great supplement for breaking down fat cells. Eat the eggs after removing the yolk.


Low Fat Dairy Products: Considerable research indicates that low fat dairy products apart from strengthening your bones, plays an essential role in burning excess body fat. If you are regular consumer of milk or other dairy products, consider shifting to low or no fat varieties of the same. In fact lack of calcium triggers the release of calcitriol - a hormone the might lead the body to store fat.


Oatmeal: Again rich in nutrients, oatmeal also helps in lowering your cholesterol level. Oatmeal has soluble fiber which helps reduce blood cholesterol by flushing the bad digestive acids out of your system. Remember, the best kind of oatmeal is unsweetened and unflavored.


Olive Oil: Olive oil is good in monounsaturated fat and helps you burn the saturated fat, apart from keeping your cholesterol down. Try consuming a swig of extra virgin olive oil in the morning as you wake up.


Fennel has been used since centuries as a carminative, to aid digestion and help metabolize fats. It is considered to be effective in reducing cholesterol and cleansing the colon.
