The best way to lose weight and shred fat is to have fun with the journey.
& that journey starts with what you cook in the kitchen.
Remember, the key to weight loss is to mix things up. That way you’re always looking forward to the next meal and so on. It’s also about knowing which foods to incorporate in your diet that contain fat burning capabilities.
So let’s not waste anymore time..
Here are the 4 must have foods that will help keep you motivated to shred more fat!
Coffee not only wakes you up but can also help you lose weight. Here’s why.
As you may have already know, coffee provides a great source of caffeine. This caffeine enhances mood and improves mental plus physical performance.
Caffeine my friend is the key.
In one study, participants took 600 mg of caffeine in a span of 12 hours. Adults who had more lean muscle burned an extra 150 calories in the 12 hour span.
I do want to warn that taking high doses of caffeine can lead to insomnia and the feeling of being light headed.
The recommended dosage for adults is 400mg. For those who take a pre-workout, know that you’re adding an extra 250-400mg of caffeine from pre-workout alone.
Also in order to receive the full fat burning benefits coffee has to offer, please avoid adding sweeteners, creamers, or fancy coffee drinks.
Yes, i’m talking about your favorite drink from Starbucks.
As you can see from the picture, a Starbucks Grande Caramel frappuccino is 400+ calories greater than a simple cup of black coffee.
Starbucks drinks can be full sugar and unwanted carbs. If you truly cannot live without having starbucks in your life, here’s a few suggestions.
Purchase a Starbucks House Coffee and drink it black. Meaning no sugar, syrup, or milk. I do recommend adding Splenda or Equal as a sweetener since both provide 0 calories.
Also to spice up your black coffee try adding some cinnamon to it.
Research has shown that cinnamon provides a quick boost to your metabolism causing to burn even more fat.
Always on the go? I would recommend purchasing Starbucks VIA packets and adding them to your water bottles. Starbucks VIA is great since it’s instant and comes in a variety of flavors.
My point is, know exactly what your drinking the next time you buy some coffee.
Just know your macros, because you might just be able to fit a frappuccino in your diet! Learn how to calculate your macros by reading our ebook.
