8 Natural Fat Burners To Keep You In Shape This Summer
Posted on June 16 2017
Warm summer nights, exotic holidays, barbeques and summer parties. Summer is finally here, and all that work training in the gym is paying off; you fit beautifully into your summer attire and look even better than you’d hoped in those holiday snaps.
At times like these, it’s so easy to let yourself go and undo all of that hard work you’ve done over the previous months. At Nutriseed, we live for good times and delicious food, so go ahead and (in moderation) enjoy! However, if you had enjoyed a little more than you’d hoped, the below natural fat burners can help to get you back on the right track to looking and feeling your very best.
Due to a compound of bioactive ingredients found in grapefruit, research has shown its great ability to lower insulin levels, a fat storage hormone. Have one slice before breakfast, or add into your smoothie or porridge, leaving the day for it to do its thing.
- Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA)
Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA) is the name given to a group of chemicals in the fatty acid, linoleic acid, and is naturally found in foods including cheese, whole milk and butter. A more convenient way to get this into your diet, however, is via natural supplements, and Nutriseed CLA Softgels can be found here.
- Matcha Green Tea and Other Herbal Teas
Caffeine, when enjoyed in the correct amounts can help to boost energy, motivation and your metabolism, (especially when training). Matcha green tea along with other herbal teas including Yerba Mate and Oolong Tea are all healthy sources of caffeine, and a cup just before training will help to boost fat burn. Nutriseed Organic Ceremonial Green Matcha Tea can be found here, and Nutriseed Yerba Mate here.
- Probiotic Foods
As mentioned elsewhere on this blog, Probiotics are ‘good bacteria’ found in a number of fermented foods, and then reside in your digestive tract, and have a number of benefits, including that of fat storage. In order to increase your probiotic intake, consume foods including kefir, cultured vegetables and natural yoghourts.
- Cacao & Chocolate
Chocolate lover like us? Well fear not, cacao in its rawest form is rich in antioxidants, which prevent cells from being oxidised and turning into fat. Simply add a scoop of raw organic cacao powder into your favourite shake or smoothie. If eating chocolate, opt for dark chocolate with no less cacao content than 90%. Nutriseed Raw Organic Cacao Powder can be found here.
- Cayenne Pepper, Cinnamon & Turmeric
Besides adding a deliciously warming spicy kick to your recipes, studies have shown that the heat from various spices including cayenne pepper, cinnamon and turmeric may also help the body’s ability to burn fat and suppress hunger. If you enjoy a spicy kick to your food, sprinkle a little of each on your savoury meals. Nutriseed Ground Cinnamon can be found here, and Nutriseed Turmeric Powder here.
- Get Enough Sleep
Getting enough of quality sleep is an often overlooked area, but be sure it is of huge importance when trying to the pounds off. Getting between seven and nine hours of quality sleep each night is best and will help to control cortisol levels and leave you in the best state to train harder and achieve.
- Do A Cold-Pressed Juice Diet
A Cold-Pressed Juice Diet might just be the best your body needs to get it back into check after a summer of fun. Find out more about the Nutriseed Cold-Pressed Juice Diet here.
