Health Foods That Burn Fat

Herbal and nutritional supplements have the potential to assist with weight management while offering additional health benefits. Green Tea Extract contains antioxidant catechins, the most abundant of which is EGCG (epigallocatechin gallate). The British Journal of Nutrition reported that EGCG with caffeine can burn 180 or more additional calories a day, which amounts to about 22 lost pounds per year.

CLA (conjugated linoleic acid) is a fatty acid found in meat and milk that may promote fat loss along with muscle growth. A study published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition showed how it helped participants lose 5 pounds of body fat while gaining 2 pounds of muscle in just 3 months.

The Bigger Picture: More studies need to be performed on these supplements, of course. However, this research suggests that, used as directed in conjunction with a healthy diet and regular exercise, Green Tea and CLA may offer improved results for weight management and contribute to overall health.

I have been hearing about a seaweed that contains Fucoxanthin. From what I understand this is a healthy food that thermogenically burns fat. Do you have more information on this?
