Thermogenic Fat Burners

Thermogenesis is the boosting of the body's metabolic rate. 'Thermo' refers to the heat that's generated by this process. It can be triggered either by exercise, diet or both. You know how to get the exercise part of the equation going. Get down to the gym and, on the days you do both types of exercise, follow your weight training with cardio. Keep within your physical limits, of course. But make sure to set higher goals when your routine gets too easy.

A number of foods and supplements can fuel diet-induced thermogenics. Many studies have shown protein to be a powerful tool when used in conjunction with moderate to low amounts of carbohydrates and fats. Fresh chili pepper can spice up a meal while raising your metabolic rate by as much as 20% short-term. Green tea is rich in antioxidants and may help inhibit fat absorption.

The Bigger Picture: All of these thermogenesis promoters are readily available and easy to work onto your daily routine. For best results, divide your breakfast, lunch and dinner into 5 or 6 smaller meals spaced 2 to 3 hours apart during the day. Choose whole foods over the processed variety whenever possible and keep going to the gym. You'll find that eating right and staying fit can be a very rewarding lifelong pursuit.

Great article!!!

In my opinion, the green tea (or white tea) is the most important thermogenic. But this is just a tool: healthy diet and workout that do the difference.
