We all know that to lose weight we need to eat less and move more. Unfortunately that will always be the case, but in this blog post I’m going to reveal five natural fat burners that will help you burn more calories and lose more weight without you even realising it.

1. Essential Fatty Acids

It seems almost wrong to suggest that getting more fat in your body can help you lose weight, but it’s true. Essential fatty acids activate our “brown fat” which is a “good” type of fat that helps to burn more calories.

500g of omega-6 daily will provide you with an adequate dosage of essential fatty acids to keep brown fat active. Rich sources include evening primrose, borage, black currant and hemp oils.

Alternatively, buy a tub of this omega 3 6 9 soft gels to get your daily dosage.

2. Medium-chain Triglycerides (MCT)

MCTs are another fat that have a surprisingly positive impact on our weight. They appear to have a three pronged approach for fat burning. Firstly they have a lower calorie content than other more unhealthy fats, secondly they are less often stored as fat in the body, and finally they have been identified to enhance thermogenesis which contributes to burning more calories. To increase your daily dosage of MCTs consider adding a tablespoon of virgin coconut oil or grapeseed oil to salads or veggies.

3. Hydroxycitric Acid (HCA)

When we consume too many carbohydrates, the excess gets metabolised into fats. One main enzyme is responsible for turning carbs to fatty acids, which then get bundled together to make fat. HCAs help to slow down this fat metabolising enzyme. HCAs also stimulates the release of sugar into the blood which can help to suppress appetite.

HCAs are present in the dried rind of tamarind – so buy some tamarind fruit to take advantage of the weight loss properties of hydroxycitric acids.

4. Green Tea

Stepping away from the technical terms now, green tea is another fantastic natural fat burner. Most importantly, it helps to stimulate metabolism so our body naturally burns more calories without us realising. One study published in the American Journal of Clinical

green tea

Nutrition found that men given a green tea extract daily lost more weight than men given a placebo. The same study found that for those given the green tea extract, metabolism was heightened by up to 4% over a 24 hour period. Another study suggests that 5-7 cups of green tea daily is the optimal quantity and at these levels of consumption an extra 70 calories can be burned daily.

Aside from the impact green tea has on metabolism, it has also been found to decrease appetite, inhibit fat absorption and help glucose regulation.

5. Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV)

Like Medium-chain Triglycerides, apple cider vinegar offers a three pronged approach to burning fat and losing weight.

Drinking a glass of water with one or two teaspoons of apple cider vinegar around an hour before a meal will help to curb appetite. ACV contains a compound called pectin which mixes with water and expands in the stomach helping you to feel full.

One of the easiest ways to shed weight is to lose excess water. Excess water is often stored due to having too much sodium. ACV, with its high potassium content, flushes sodium from the body which in turn allows the excess water from the body.

Finally, ACV contains acetic acid which promotes the absorption of iron. A high quantity of iron results in a high oxygen utilization which stimulates the metabolic rate.

Buy a bottle of this Bragg’s Apple Cider Vinegar to take advantage of ACVs fantastic fat burning properties.

The above fat burners won’t make you slim overnight, but if you include them consistently in your diet you will start to notice small changes that make a big difference.
