Probably red hot chili peppers and other exotic spices that allegedly increase your metabolism helping you burn more fat. Theres a hint of truth to it. The fat-burning (thermogenic) effect of spices do exist. ◦ helps increase your metabolism, but at a small level ◦ doubtful whether they actually aid in fat loss.
  3. 3. Fat-burning foods – a myth orreality? A great alternative to spices is consuming protein. ◦ considered to be the most thermogenic food (the body uses a LOT of energy to digest them). Lean meat such as turkey, chicken breast and other lean red meat are good sources of protein.
  4. 4. Other fat-burning foods Salmon and tuna (and almost all other types of fish) ◦ Fish is a great source of protein and Omega 3 fatty acids, which helps boost metabolism. ◦ Omega 3 fatty acids help control leptin levels in your body, which results to more calories burned.
