The term 'hack' is being used a lot lately. While it used to have a negative connotation, these days to 'hack' is to find a quicker, easier and more effective method for achieving a goal.
There are life hacks (like packing Christmas ornaments in empty egg cartons), food hacks (like placing a handful of cherry tomatoes between two plates and using a knife to halve them all in one fell swoop), and as I'll share with you today, fat loss hacks.
Fat loss hacks are ways of doing everyday things, like eating, in a way that promotes fat loss and blocks fat storage. Sounds pretty great, right?!
Here are my 7 most effective Fat Burning Meal Hacks...
Fat Loss Hack #1: Cauliflower Rice
Serve shredded, sautéed cauliflower
as rice, rather than traditional brown or white rice. You can even add your favorite spices and flavor additions as you do with traditional rice.
Fat Loss Hack #2: Vegetable Noodles
There are many ways to create and enjoy noodles made from vegetables, rather than noodles made from grains. The veggie noodles are a hundred times less fattening than grain-based noodles, so what are you waiting for?! Use a spiral slicer
to turn zucchini or butternut squash into noodles; bake a spaghetti squash and scrape out those nature-made noodles; or simply use a traditional veggie peeler to create long noodle strips from zucchini.
Fat Loss Hack #3: Lettuce Wrapped
By simply replacing your sliced bread and buns for large pieces of lettuce, you’ll quickly eliminate a couple hundred empty calories from each meal. Once you get used to the crunch of the lettuce you’ll enjoy your new style of sandwich and burger even more than the traditional way.
Fat Loss Hack #4: Protein Powder
Did you know that protein powder can be used in many recipes to increase the protein? Replace a portion of the flour in your pancakes with high quality protein powder and you’ll see how delicious it tastes while being so much healthier for you. At Zone we have a protein powder that is only 3 ingredients, plant based and has zero sugar! Great to add to cooking!
Fat Loss Hack #5: Coconut Oil
Replace the vegetable oil in your kitchen with coconut oil, and enjoy benefits such as increased fat burning and reduced appetite. In addition, you’ll be avoiding the pitfalls of other, less healthy oils and fats. Coconut oil can be used in virtually any recipe – both stove top and baking.
Fat Loss Hack #6: Stop Trying to Figure Out Sweeteners
Just get rid of all sweeteners. When you need something sweet reach for a piece of whole fruit. Avoid sugar and move on. And yes, all sweeteners count even those without calories and "natural." All sweeteners produce and insulin response. Insulin is a fat storage hormone.
Fat Loss Hack #7: Water
Replace high calorie beverages with crystal clear water. This simple hack could quite possibly change your life. If high calories, sugar-laden beverages make up a significant part of your daily calories then switching to water will swiftly induce fat loss.
And yes, this includes diet drinks! In fact diet drinks not only still cause your body to store fat but they also are terrible for your brain. Get rid of them.
