3 Fatty Foods That Can Actually Help You Burn Fat
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

If the title of this article has you a little confused, you are not alone. There are literally millions of frustrated drop out dieters who have learned the hard way that their understanding of nutrition and more specifically fat is totally wrong. While most of us know the basics about which foods are healthy and which are not, there is a ton of grey area in the realm of fatty foods that weight loss experts are starting to shed some more light on.

The truth is that fat is not the horrible thing it is made out to be. In fact, most government-issued nutrition guides recommend that fat composes 30% of your daily caloric intake. The confusion starts to mount, however, when the consumer is left to determine which fats and which foods can lead to healthy lifestyle and dramatic, effective weight loss. Let’s discuss three of these fatty foods that can help your fat burning goals.

Fat Burning Food #1: Avocados

Growing in popularity over the past 15 years, avocado is absolutely loaded with nutrition and healthy fats. Rich in fiber, antioxidants and vitamins, this miracle fruit helps to regulate your appetite and stimulate the fat burning hormones that are already in your body. They’re a great option for adding a nice creamy texture to any meal without compromising calories or sacrificing quality.

Fat Burning Food #2: Egg Yolks

If you’re surprised, don’t be. In fact, you should be more surprised that egg yolks have been given such a poor reputation to begin with. Yes, they are fatty and known for having cholesterol, but egg yolks are a great way to get quality nourishment for each of those important elements of your diet. Not all fat is bad, and not all cholesterol is bad. If you incorporate healthy fats like the kinds in egg yolks, you actually balance your own fat profile and make the fat that is in your system the most beneficial it can be. One last thing; the purer the better –try to shop for free range eggs!

Fat Burning Food #3: Grass-fed Beef

Lately, a lot of information has come out about the feed farm animals are given and how it affects our health down the line. It’s important to remember that cattle are meant to eat grass, not grains and not corn. Sadly, that’s where most of our meat at the supermarket comes from; it lacks optimum quantities of healthy fats like omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins and quality protein. Purchasing grass-fed beef is clearly the healthier choice and it will expedite your fat loss process.

If you have learned two things from this article, let them be the importance of quality food sources and the fact that fat is an essentially part of any healthy diet. Keep working towards your goals and don’t fall into the traps of the diet industry!
