Grapefruit has all the main workings of a weight-loss food. It’ll kick start your metabolism, but still keep you feeling full. The fruit has heaps fibre. Whether you choose to eat one for breakfast or serve it on the side with grilled chicken, this fruit will help curb any unhealthy cravings.
Spices like ginger, cinnamon, cayenne, and turmeric may help you burn more fat. They are a must with most meals. I love turmeric on y chicken. It is also reported to lower inflammation.
We call almonds the King or Queen of the nuts. They are so versatile; you can put into anything or eat alone. They are one of the best workout snacks since they’re high in protein and carbs but are also lightweight and relatively non-perishable. For weight loss, almonds will help reduce your desire to overeat but still keep your energy levels high.
Green tea has been shown to help increase your metabolic rate so that you can burn 70 to 80 additional calories just by drinking just 3 to 5 cups of green tea per day. Let’s do the maths, over a year you could lose 4kg just by drinking green tea! Of course, taking a 15-minute walk every day will help burn even more calories. Many of our Bondi Beach Teas have green tea as part of the proprietary blend.
