Fat Burning Foods Myth

I have to admit something…I am going to upset a few of my good friends when I crush this nutrition myth. But if I have to sacrifice myself in order to help you out, then that’s what I have to do.

So here’s the final (and most ridiculous) nutrition myth…

The Myth – Fat Burning Foods Exist

This is wrong.

Fat burning foods are the “unicorns” of the nutrition world.

They do not exist.

And when you think about it, the term doesn’t make sense.

How can a food cause you to burn fat?

It can’t.

Foods GIVE you energy.

They don’t cause you to burn fat.

When you eat food, the hormonal changes in your body SLOW fat
burning, they don’t speed it up – no matter what you eat!

Listen, the experts mean well.

They want to show you a list of foods that will help you with fat
loss, but it is a myth that “fat burning foods” exist.

And yes, they are right that whole, natural foods such as chicken
breasts, eggs, nuts, fruits, and vegetables all help you lose fat by
controlling your appetite and by not causing you to gain fat, but
NOT ONE of those ingredients actually burns fat.

Now some might argue that eating hot peppers or caffeine or even
green tea can burn fat, but do you seriously think that eating those
foods is even 1/1000th as effective as a workout?

They aren’t.


Instead, keep your nutrition SIMPLE. Focus on whole, natural foods
and limit high-calorie, high-sugar foods to just a couple of treats
per week. Combine that with your favorite Turbulence Training
workouts and you’ll lose fat fast.

Let me know if you have any questions or need help with anything.
