MUNTINLUPA, PHILIPPINES (Catholic Online) - Food is not really the main culprit when reducing pounds comes to mind, contrary to popular myths or beliefs. Actually, experts explain that it is best to consume fresh fruits and vegetables, along with nuts and seeds - which are known to contain fat-burning compounds - instead of cutting down on what one usually eats.

A nutrient-rich food helps to eliminate hunger and helps create fast metabolism.

Harju listed some fat-burning foods that could be included in your diet to help reduce weight:

1. Fish to reduce cravings. Include tuna and salmon, both healthy fatty fishes, in your diet for fast metabolism. These are known to trigger fullness, thus reducing the cravings to eat more.

2. Lean meat and other organics. Great sources of lean healthy protein are poultry products, such as chicken and turkey. We tend to burn calories more by digesting protein over carbohydrates.

3. Sip some green tea. Cathecin, an active ingredient in green tea and the other benefits of caffeine increases body metabolism for up to two hours after consumption. Studies show that dieters who are regular drinkers of green tea were observed to have lost more weight, compared to those who aren't.

4. Get some coconut. MCFA's or medium-chain fatty acids are some compounds in coconut which are not actually stored inside the body but are broken down for energy production.

5. Delight in avocados. An avocado can contain much more calories compared to a chocolate bar, but it offers more health benefits and has monosaturated fatty acids that are used for slow burning energy than stored as body fat.

6. Opt for green, leafy vegetables. Dark, leafy vegetables like spinach and broccoli are known to have fiber-rich components.
