Add These Four Foods To Your Diet And Your Body Will Burn More Fat

January is proven to be the month where gyms are the busiest. With New Year’s resolutions in full force, you’ll often find a long line for the shoulder press, and you’ll definitely be hard-pressed to get ample room in your usual morning Zumba class. Year-round gym-goers may joke around at the end of the year to prepare for the resolution rush, but it’s very real.

While working out is crucial for getting healthy, happy, and fit,you won’t make any progress as long as you keep fueling your body with junk. You can do as many burpees, squats, sprints, deadlifts, and downward dogs as you want, but if you continue with the sweets and luxurious dinners out of moderation, you’ll never reach your resolution. But where do you begin? You never want to deprive your body of what it needs, or your sweet tooth from what it wants entirely.

For starters, learning about what specific foods do to your body can really help you make the perfect get-happy plan for 2016.Did you know that some foods can actually help your body burn fat faster? Some of them may already be some of your favorite foods, and you just didn’t know it. Add these four fat-burning foods to your diet, alongside your favorite exercises, and you’re already on your way to looser jeans.

There’s A New Vegan-Ish Diet That’s Changing The Rules

If you can’t imagine abiding by the laws of veganism, a diet that excludes some of brunch’s best offerings, you might be pleased to know about a new food fad that permits breakfast lovers to have their omelets and eat them, too. 

Many not-quite-vegans are including eggs in their otherwise animal product-free regimens, and these so-called “veggans” (clever, right?) are using #veggan on Instagram to prove how much a runny yolk can change a dish. 

Elizabeth Ward, a registered dietitian who previously served as a spokesperson for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, points out that eggs are incredibly nutritious and satisfying. She supports adding them to an eating plan.

“Being a vegan can be tricky because you need to be careful about getting enough of some nutrients,” she said.

Vitamin B12 and choline are two essential nutrients that are found in higher amounts in animal foods, and they’re often better absorbed from animal foods, too. According to Ward, eggs can help to fill some of the potential nutrient gaps that vegan diets pose: “They are an excellent source of choline, and provide vitamin B12 and iron, as well as protein and many other nutrients,” she said.

Indeed, eggs have long-been dubbed “the perfect protein,” with one large egg contains six grams of the most readily available protein to the body.

Outdated wisdom suggested eggs could contribute to high cholesterol, but recent studies show that the food’s good cholesterol doesn’t raise a healthy person’s risk. In fact, according to the Mayo Clinic, some studies have shown that moderate egg consumption (about seven a week) can actually help prevent the risk of some heart-related conditions.

What’s more, eggs are affordable, portable and pair well nutritionally and deliciously with many plant-based foods. 

The rising term “veggan” comes at a time when there are seemingly millions of specialty diets under the sun. Whether you’re a flexitarian, a bacon-after-beer subscriber or a vegan before six, the truth is is that there are many ways to be healthy — and it doesn’t really matter what you call yourself. If you stick to real, whole foods that you feel good about eating and that fuel you’re body, you’re doing alright, whether you have a cool Instagram hashtag or not. 

H/T Well and Good
