Struggling to lose weight? It can feel frustrating, especially when your weight loss journey seems to have plateaued. No one wants to spend lots of money on a nutritionist or expensive surgeries. So why not look for a natural alternative?
Here, we’ll discuss some possible natural fat burners that can help you in your weight loss process. We’ll break down what we mean exactly when we talk about fat burners and give you nutritionist-approved advice.
What Are Fat Burners?
There are various types of “fat burners,” including natural sources from foods and drinks and supplements. When we talk about fat burners, we generally refer to products that help your body burn stored fat. They do this by turning that fat into an energy source for your body.
Many supplements or “diet pills” will claim to drastically improve your weight loss, boost your metabolism, increase your energy for physical activities, and even curb your appetite.
It’s important to note that these fat burners affect everyone’s bodies differently. In this article, we’ll discuss tested options that have proven fat-burning properties. Keep in mind that the effects might look different for your body. That is why we recommend trying several options to see what works best for you.
Spices can be one of the easiest ways to incorporate natural fat burners into your diet. Both ginger and cinnamon have thermogenic properties. This means they raise your body’s internal temperature enough to burn more calories and use more energy.
Spices like cumin and turmeric have also been shown to increase weight loss and decrease body fat. Additionally, turmeric contains curcumin, a substance with powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
Green tea has long been shown to help you burn fat through a process called thermogenesis. There are supplements that contain the more concentrated green tea extract, but you can achieve similar results by drinking a few cups of green tea a day.
Similarly, green coffee beans (or raw coffee beans) can lead to reduced fat deposition and can be consumed in liquid or supplement form.
Of course, there are many bottled drinks that claim to help you lose weight as well. We have found that many of them do not deliver on their promise, or require special programs or instructions to be followed.
We prefer more naturally based products and have found great results when using a powdered drinks or teas we can make at home. These combine both the convenience of a quick drink with a healthy, natural option.
Fruits and Vegetables
If you don’t feel like seeking out fancy supplements, there are some fruits and vegetables that have similar fat-burning properties. Both garlic and chili peppers also have thermogenic properties, so don’t steer away from spicy food if weight-loss is your goal!
Additionally, adding fruits like grapefruit, apples or berries to your daily routine and diet can help you in your weight loss journey. Fruits like these are low in calories, but high in vitamins and fiber.
There are lots of supplements on the market that claim to help with weight loss. We’ve already discussed green tea extract and green coffee bean extract options, but there are other options you might consider as well.
Caffeine is often advertised as a way to burn excess fat, but beware – taking too much caffeine may have more negative side effects that outweigh the positives. Protein powder and soluble fiber might also be worth considering.
Incorporating Natural Fat Burners Into Your Diet
Losing weight can be a frustrating process. Experimenting with natural fat burners could help get you past your weight loss plateau but it’s also important to gather as much of your own research as possible.
Remember that there likely is not one “magic” fat burner that will give you a six-pack. However, experimenting with some of these natural products could help you achieve your goals.
