Fat burning food is something about which everyone needs to know. Continuing to write about it, hope this guides many readers to have a healthy life. Some studies suggest that vinegar (especially apple cider vinegar) activates enzymes in your body that break down fat. However, evidence is skimpy. Proponents of the vinegar diet claim that apple cider vinegar boosts metabolism. Other studies have shown that apple cider vinegar helps balance blood sugar levels by lowering the glycaemic index of a meal. This may aid weight loss by preventing blood sugar spikes. Finally, vinegar’s anti-fungal properties can help fight candida, a condition that may lead to cravings for carbohydrates and sugar and therefore to weight gain.

Green tea contains chemicals called catechins that help you burn fat. They not only increase your metabolism so you burn more calories (even when sitting still), they also increase the rate at which your liver burns fat. The recommended amount of green tea for good fat-burning effect is four to six cups per day.
