There are many ways to approach the loss of excess body fat. As we point out in TurboCharged, there are good ways and bad ways. Today we want to take a quick look at food choices and how they will influence both the rate of fat loss and your overall experience while dramatically changing your body composition.
Weight loss is not the same as fat loss and that is why monitoring your body composition while dieting is critical to your ultimate success.
What are the best foods to eat for fat loss?
To start, no matter what anyone tells you, a caloric deficit is required. You need to eat fewer calories than you expend over the course of time. There are no magic foods that will allow you to eat more calories than your actual energy requirement and still lose body fat. You can get fat eating too much of anything. This is a fact.
In a nutshell, the best foods for fat loss will be low in calories but high in nutritional value. Building the bulk of your diet around food choices that meet this description will allow you to consume a greater volume of food, provide the highest level of nutrition per calorie, while at the same time creating a caloric deficit. It is a win-win situation.
Therefore, the ideal fat loss foods are fresh fruits, leafy greens and non-starchy vegetables. It is neither necessary nor ideal to eat these foods exclusively while on a fat loss program. These foods will provide highest amount of moisture content, fiber, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and phytonutrients, required for optimal health, per calorie consumed. Building the bulk of your diet around these foods provides optimal nutrition with the least amount of calories which makes them the best choice even when fat loss is not the goal.
