    • Tangerines, limes, papaya, grapefruit, oranges, guava, tomatoes, celery
  • Supplemental Vitamin C
    • It supports Carnitine metabolism in our bodies, which helps us to burn free fatty acids (fatty acid shuttle) in our mitochondria.
  • Cayenne and Curry and Green Tea have thermogenic properties, as well.
    • Green Tea in trials has documented fat burning (thermogenic) activity.
  • Other foods and nutrients that can help burn fat:
    • Apple-pectin reduce fat cells ability to absorb fat
    • Leafy greens, arugula, & lettuce
    • Watermelon
    • Cabbage reduces conversion of sugars and carbohydrates into fats.
    • Omega 3 fatty acids enhance the bodies fat burning activities
    • Omega 3 fatty acids reduce insulin resistance
    • Omega 7 oils (newcomer to the party), known as Palmitoleic acid. Purified forms dramatically improve insulin resistance, which can help a pre-diabetic and type-II diabetic. Also aids your ability to burn sugar and fats much more efficiently.
    • Lentils are very alkalinizing and contain high fiber. Plus, they cause the body to expend more in calories to expend it versus the calories it carries.
