Want to slim down while eating delicious food? Well, this may not be as absurd as it sounds, after all. On the shelves of the supermarkets, there are some foods that according to research, have fat burning properties:
* Almonds: these nuts are rich in alpha linolenic acid, which accelerates the metabolism. Research has shown that people who ate 85 grams of almonds a day (about a dozen almonds) reduced their weight and the ratio of their body mass by 18%.
* Blackberries and blueberries, which are rich in vitamin C: These fruits, as proven by research from the University of Arizona, help your body burn 30% more calories during exercise. They contain flavonoids, an ingredient that is the enemy of fat. Research published in “American Journal of Clinical Nutrition” showed that women who consumed more flavonoids showed a smaller increase in body weight over a period of fourteen years.
* Soy: It is rich in choline, a compound that prevents the process of absorption of fat from the body and dissolves the stored fat.
