Q: What are good fat-burning foods?
A: The concept behind fat-burning foods is the thermogenic diet: some foods require more calories to digest than they contain. These food include berries, celery, grapefruit, etc. This being said, these foods do not actually burn fat and there is no such thing as a “fat-burning food.” There are certain foods that can naturally help boost your metabolism, such as hot peppers (for example, jalapeños and habanero peppers ), green tea and vinegar. The increase in metabolism these foods provide is minimal and does not contribute to significant weight loss. Bottom Line: The best way to speed up your metabolism is to exercise and eat at least every four to five hours. If a food or supplement is advertised as being “fat-burning,” it is being misleading.
