There are natural foods out there that are brimming with fat burning potential. Eating these powerful foods will actually help you lose weight and in some cases even reset your whole metabolism.
Why? Because these foods contain bioactive compounds. If you haven’t heard of them before, bioactive compounds are plant-based chemicals or phytochemicals, that help boost metabolism, prevent disease and make you feel good! Bioactives are not vitamins and minerals.
Fat loss isn't only about avoiding toxic foods, its about eating more of certain foods. To lose weight in a healthy way and keep it off, you must incorporate proper food into your diet.
Examples of plant based food bioactives include:
- Carotenoids – bioactives that give your carrots, corn, tomatoes and pumpkins their distinct orange, yellow and red pigments.
- Polyphenols – a group of more than 8,000 antioxidant-rich phytochemicals such as flavonoids, lignans phenolic acid, which boost the immune system.
- Fiber – Dietary “roughage” that are resistant to the action of digestive enzymes and help food to pass through your system.
eat more of these foods and lose weight
Burn Fat with these 5 delicious foods
1) Ancient Grain Breads-
Most people wouldn't assume that eating bread could possibly promote weight loss. But at Joseph's Organic Bakery, that is actually our experience and the experience of our customers who follow our Alkaline Diet, to the point that “Eat Bread Lose Weight” has become our slogan. And there are studies to back up what we've seen on the ground. Research has shown that ancient grain breads like Kamut Einkorn and Spelt contain plant based bioactives in much higher concentration than modern wheats. In a quote from the study published in Food Research International “The concentration of WG bioactive components has been reported to be higher in ancient crops and/or minor cereals e.g. KAMUT® khorasan wheat, barley, spelt, and rye, click here to read the full study.
Einkorn (Triticum monococcum L. ssp. monococcum) is an ancient crop. In a different study researchers found that “Compared to polyploid wheats it has a higher content of proteins, polyunsaturated fatty acids, fructans, and phytochemicals as tocols, carotenoids, alkylresorcinols, phytosterols, and a lower α-, β-amylase and lipoxygenase activities.” click here to read the full study.
Phytochemicals in Kamut Einkorn and Spelt also contribute to controlling blood glucose levels and insulin sensitivity. And as we explained in a previous article, high levels of insulin in the body, and high blood sugar levels directly cause weight gain.
Proper Bread has the potential to provide up to 70% of your daily nutrient requirements. But not all bread is equal. Some breads are bad for health. It all depends upon what grain is used and how the bread is prepared.
At Joseph's Organic bakery our breads are Alkaline Superfoods, helping our customers to improve their health. We take pride in our unique preparation method which enhances the vitamin and mineral content of each loaf, while preserving the essence and nourishing properties of our ancient grain flours.

Avocadoes contain healing fat known as Oleic Acid that quashes inflammation and tissue swelling. Avocadoes also stop cytokones which puts a stop to inflammation induced pain.
Additionally avocadoes help up absorb bioactive compounds found in other foods. So pair avocadoes with other healing foods. For example, my favorite practice is to make avocado toast with ancient grain bread, or to incorporate avocado with tomatoes (another fat burning food) or apples.
Naringin is a bioactive compound in grapefruit juice that has been identified as a key agent in weight loss. Eat grapefruit whole or freshly squeeze its juice.
Tomatoes especially when cooked in olive oil (or avocado oil) unleashes lycopene known to dissolve belly fat and block the creation of new fat cells.
However, tomatoes can promote inflammation in some people. so opt to buy tomatoes that are grown in soil, not hydroponics, to minimize reactions.
5) Longjing Green Tea-
longjing green tea's bioactive compound, EGCG stimulates destruction of fat cells, and helps you burn 900% more belly fat.
Drink 1-3 cups per day.
Beware some green tea is heavily contaminated with heavy metals, so its important to buy green tea grown in good soil without pesticides, otherwise it wont have any effect.
