10 Foods You Need To Include In Your Daily Diet To Help Burn Fat

Sugar and carbohydrates cause fat. There are certain foods you can eat that will help melt tummy fats and extra weight in your arms, legs and butts. Take a look through this list to see which of these fat-busting foods you already eat, and which you need to eat more of.

1. Water

Although last on the list, drinking sufficient water daily may be the best thing to help reduce body fat.  Drinking water can boost your metabolic rate by 30%. Drinking warm lemon water first thing in the morning really enhances your daily digestive process.

Water helps move food and waste through your body. Your body is mostly water, and when you sweat, sleep, or otherwise deprive yourself of this essential fluid, your body has a harder time breaking down food and will ultimately retain more water.

2. Green Leafy Vegetables

Of course dark, leafy green vegetables will show up on this list. Vegetables are a great food for melting away fats, especially when consumed as juice. They have almost no carbs or calories, and still makes you feel full.

With an abundance of phytochemicals and nutrients, vegetables don’t just help you cut fat, it also helps improve your gut health, immune system and general health. Start including at least one glass of juice in your diet every day.

3. Chili Pepper

Capsaicin, the compound that makes hot peppers hot, enhances calorie burning even when you aren’t working out. Capsaicin also has the ability to reduce hunger, meaning that peppers will help you eat less and burn more.

4. Flaxseeds

Flaxseeds are a great source of Omega-3s and alpha-linolenic acid and can be mixed into dinners, salads, and juices. These omega-3s have been found to stimulate fat-burning and slow fat storage.

You can add flaxseeds or the oil in your smoothies or salads.

5. Oatmeal

A good, natural carb, oatmeal is rich with fiber and digests slowly, keeping your blood sugar and insulin levels low. Your body will burn more fat during exercise when you’ve had oatmeal earlier in the day.

Research has shown that athletes who consume slow-digesting (complex) carbs in the morning burn more fat throughout the day than those who eat faster-burning (refined) carbs.

6. Walnuts

Another food rich in monounsaturated fats, walnuts are super-high in omega-3s. Just 1 ounce of these nuts gives almost 3 grams of alpha-linolenic acid, a healthy fat that your body can’t produce on its own.

Alpha-linolenic acid is one of the healthy fats your body needs to help your metabolic system work at top-notch. These essential fats can only be obtained through foods, and walnuts are one of the best foods for it.

7. Ginger

Ginger is great to be added into your juices and smoothies. It’s been used for centuries to help with digestive problems, inflammation, and blood flow issues. Ginger is anti-inflammatory and can help with muscle recovery—which makes it a great post-exercise food.

8. Olive Oil

Like avocados, olive oil is another great source of healthy fats. Olive oil lowers bad cholesterol and helps your heart pump oxygenated blood throughout your body.The monounsaturated fats in olive oil are burned as energy instead of stored as fat in your midsection.

9. Grapefruit

A study at Scripps Clinic in San Diego reported that eating half a grapefruit or drinking 24oz of grapefruit juice daily helped subjects lose an average of 4 pounds over 12 weeks. There was no change to their diet, and some even lost more than 10 pounds without dieting.

How does it work? Grapefruit lessens the level of insulin your body needs to use, and has a compound called naringin which prevent fat from being stored. So a little grapefruit every day can go a long way.

10. Avocado

Avocado is full of monounsaturated fats and mannoheptulose, a carbohydrate that enhances your body’s calcium absorption and encourages fat burning. You’ll easily get the nutrients and fuel from avocados—especially when exercising. You can add avocado to breakfast, lunch, or dinner—even to your smoothies.

Juice Fasting Basics – Plus Free Juice Fasting Webinar


Juice fasting can be a powerful way of cleansing our body. There is no faster and more effective way to eliminate a host of toxins that you have accumulated for decades through processed foods, pesticides, herbicides, heavy metals, pharmaceutical drugs and other environmental contaminants.

Before movies like Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead came out and popularized juice fasting for rapid physical healing, rejuvenation, and weight loss, juice fasting has been used to experience higher states of awareness, mental clarity and deep spiritual realizations. No matter what your intent is, juice fasting is guaranteed to produce massive changes in your physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health. In this blog post I am going to briefly discuss some important key points of juice fasting.

What is Juice Fasting?

Juice fasting is a type of fasting and “detox diet” in which a person consumes only fruit and vegetable juices. Being available only in digestible carbohydrates, these foods are digested rapidly. People choose to undergo juice fasts for various reasons and via various methods.

Juicing at Home vs. Buying from the Store

It’s easy to make your own juices–just buy a juicer, fruits and vegetables and some mason jars for storage, and you’re all set. But isn’t it easier to just buy a bunch of juices from the store, or through a cleansing program online? Sure it is, but it’s a lot pricier, and sometimes not always the healthiest route to go. Many bottled juices sold in grocery stores have extremely high sugar contents and artificial additives that almost cancel out their healthfulness of juice fasting entirely. If it’s freshly juiced at the store though, then it’s most likely pure juice with nothing else added. Just be sure to check the ingredients and double check with someone who works there.

If you opt to juice at home, why not try these juice recipes from our website?

Daily Planning

Juice cleanses can last as long as you’d like them to. But if you’re just starting out, you might want to limit your first fast to four – five juices a day for two or three days so your body and mind have time to adjust. After all, it’ll probably be the first time you live off of liquids for a long period of time. And if you choose to do a second juice fast in the future, extending it to one week wouldn’t hurt.

But listen to your body. If you feel faint, constantly hungry or nauseous, you may want to consult a doctor to find out if juice cleansing is right for you.

How Much Juice Should I Drink During a Juice Fast?

Many people make the mistake of not drinking enough juice. Not drinking enough juice can cause very unpleasant healing reactions and ravenous hunger. This is not about hunger or deprivation – this is about nourishing and healing the body. Drink as much juice as desired. Drink at least a gallon per day, and more if there is hunger. If there is hunger, it means not enough nutritionally based juice is being consumed. Ideally, it should actually feel as if one is drinking too much juice. So remember, when it comes to juice fasting, more is better.
