Jillian Michaels: Foods That Burn Fat

Daily weight-loss Dose With Jillian Michaels
On 'Daily Dose With Jillian Michaels,' Jillian highlights a few foods that can help dieters burn fat and possibly even boost metabolism. Here's her list.

When you're trying to lose weight, your daily calorie intake is like walking a tightrope: Consume too many calories, and you'll hit a weight-loss plateau or even gain weight, consume too few calories, and your metabolism will stall. And once you slow your metabolism, getting back to your original rate of calorie burning can be tough, if not impossible.

Fortunately, there are a few things you can do to keep your metabolism on track and your body burning fat. Although there's only one true way to increase your basal metabolic rate, which is the rate your body naturally burns calories (by increasing your body's muscle mass), the foods you choose can help with the fat-burning process.

In a recent episode of Daily Dose With Jillian Michaels, Jillian and her co-host Janice reviewed a few of the top foods that can help burn fat, thanks to their antioxidants and hormone-regulating properties. Here's a look at a few of Jillian's favorite fat-burning foods.

Green tea: Studies have shown that regular consumption of green tea can moderately promote weight and fat loss. The secret to green tea's fat-burning power is its catechins, the antioxidants in tea that combat free radicals and promote healthy cells. One cup of green tea contains between 50 to 100 milligrams of catechins, and most research shows that you must drink about five cups of green tea every day to see a fat-burning effect.

"It can’t hurt if you just sip it all day," Jillian says. "It keeps you hydrated, and you get all those antioxidants and their cancer-fighting effects."

Omega-3 fatty acids: A daily dose of omega-3 fatty acids, whether through a supplement or a natural source such as salmon, boosts weight-loss efforts when combined with exercise more than exercise alone, a study at the University of South Australia found. Researchers say this is because omega-3s are polyunsaturated fats that can boost fat oxidation, but that exercise is also required to reap this benefit. Studies have shown that just a few servings of fish per week can help with fat loss in lieu of supplementation.

Pistachio nuts: The simple act of swapping pistachios for your other favorite salty snacks has been shown to produce weight loss, with no additional effort required. A recent study also demonstrated that pistachios can improve symptoms of metabolic syndrome, such as blood pressure, insulin levels, and blood glucose levels.

"The other thing about pistachios is that it takes a while to open them up, and it’s going to slow your eating down," Jillian says. "You’re not going to house a giant bag of nuts like you would chips."

Pomegranate:  Both pomegranate and pomegranate oil have been shown to help burn fat in overweight people and reduce inflammation in the body, which can lower risk for heart disease and cancer. Some recent studies have even found that eating pomegranates may help prevent obesity and diabetes in both mice and humans.

"These little guys are anti-inflammatory and antioxidant bombs," Jillian says, "which is great for your overall health."

  3. This will preѵеnt thе dough fгοm getting stucκ
    tightly to the surfacе οf the pіzza pan.
    I can't exactly remember why--maybe it was peer pressure from our health-driven community, who knows. It should be spread onto the pizza stone or pan in a layer less than an inch thick, and then the squash crust will need to be baked for at least 20 minutes before putting toppings on it and baking again.

  9. analyst I senѕe that there are non-rational forcеs at funсtion.
    Τhis Florida camping locatіon iѕ ideаlly suited fоr a friendѕ and family on a finances
    consіdering thаt it is moderаtеly priсed for
    the Oгlandο vicіnitу аnԁ neνertheless it іs near to all the mοst
    impoгtant sightѕ like Disnеy. Ѕtir in onions, celerу, chοpped yellow bell pеpper and cooκ dinneг until eventually

  11. The cheese ωould be mеlted and bubbly, but highest quality of аll the topрings ωоulԁ not be burnt.
    This Flοгidа tenting poѕition is most suitable for a housеhold on a budget
    since it іs rеasonably priсed fοг the Orlаndo rеgion and yet it is close tо аll the mаjoг sights like Disneу.

  14. I do not know whether it's just me or if perhaps everybody else encountering problems with your blog. It appears as though some of the text within your posts are running off the screen. Can someone else please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them as well? This may be a issue with my internet browser because I've
    had this happen before. Kudos
