9 Fat-Burning Eating Tips

Ever since you were a kid popping Flintstones Chewables, you've known that Vitamin C is good for you -- and that certainly hasn't changed. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant AND has been shown in studies to help burn fat. So, if you're looking for a snack, how's about a nice, juicy grapefruit? The theory is that grapefruit helps to lower insulin levels, which keeps you from being hungry all the time! We know it smacks of classic diet food, but those Ruby Reds are MIGHTY delicious! If it's too sour for you straight, sprinkle it with some no-calorie sweetener like Splenda or stevia.

Fairly good information except stay away from the chemical artificial sweetners. You're much better off just using stevia which is a natural powdered sweetner that's even sweeter than sugar. It actually helps the body maintain correct insulin levels and is alkalizing. It is found in the natural herb section of stores. Also, watch what kind of fish you eat. Some have high levels of mercury and other toxins. It's best to eat fresh caught Atlantic salmon for omega 3 oils.
