Get A Natural Boost for Shedding Those Pounds

With Summer Time now upon us, a lot of us are concerned more than ever with our weight. Whether you are frolicking on the beach in your bikini or pulling that cute little dress out of your closet, you want to look your best! Well, looking your best involves getting a handle on your waist line and tossing those bad eating habits that you picked up during the Winter months.

What foods will help you shed those pounds naturally??

Grapefruits- The Grapefruit has an enzyme that can reduce fat formation by lowering the body's insulin levels (the lower the insulin spike after a meal, the easier your body can metabolize the food). Grapefruits are also high in fiber and water content, which means that eating a few slices of grapefruit before a meal can ensure that you don't overeat.

Organic Apple Cider Vinegar- Apple cider vinegar works well as an appetite suppressant because it helps in the reduction of water retention capacity and the increase of your body's metabolic rates. Mix two teaspoons with sixteen ounces of water, and sip the solution before or with meals.  Make sure to get Raw Organic Apple Cider Vinegar that is unfiltered, unheated and unpasteurized.

Green Tea- Green tea extracts contain polyphenols and caffeine amounts which are thought to trigger thermogenesis (body heat creation) and promote fat oxidation (using stored fat to produce energy). Green Tea can also act as a diuretic, ridding the body of excess fluids and water. Drink 2-4 cups daily to burn 70-80 calories through the thermogenesis process.

Green Vegetables- Green Vegetables contain small calorie amounts in both raw and cooked forms, and contain lots of vitamins and nutrients. If you don't like to eat your veggies plain, try a low calorie dipping sauce or drip. Or, you can try adding any leftover veggies to pastas or stir-fry to make smaller portions more filling.

These are just a few ways that you can kick-start your new, healthier diet regimen just in time for Summer! Stick to the natural methods for aiding weight loss; stay away from diet pills and fat burners as they can have various effects on your heart or liver.
