10 Fat Fighting Foods

We usually think of food as causing fat. But did you know that some foods can fight fat? It is true; some foods can actually help you lose weight and burn through fat, just by eating them. Who knew? Here are ten of the best fat fighting foods.

The Bulletproof Diet

It isn’t fair to judge a diet by its marketing. It is even more unfair to judge a diet by the graphics used on promotion web sites. But the Bulletproof Diet sets a new standard for both of these measures. The marketing and graphics have the delicacy of a sledge hammer. Is there anything behind the hype?

Is Gluten Free the Latest Fad?

The phrase “Gluten Free” seems to be popping up everywhere. Many supermarkets have entire isles dedicated to gluten free foods. Before long, someone will be marketing gluten free water. What is this all about, and why should we care?

Chances are, you’ve never actually seen gluten, but you eat it every day. Gluten is a protein that is in wheat, rye, barley, oats and hops. It is the sticky bit that makes bread hold together. It gives pasta that silky smoothness. So what’s not to like?

The Acid Reflux Diet

Sour stomach? Eat something that didn’t agree with you? Really yearning for some Tums? These symptoms could be clues that you are suffering from acid reflux. At best, acid reflux can take the joy out of a good meal. At worst, it can deliver all the pain and panic of a heart attack. What can be done to minimize this scourge of modern life?

The Belly Melt Diet

There is a time for everything, and everything in its time. This old chestnut is making the rounds again, this time as the basis for a new diet. The Belly Melt Diet promised quick weight loss without starvation, just by sensing and resetting our internal rhythms.  Claims like “Lose 19 pounds in only 35 days” are being tossed about. Could our body clock be the secret to a flat belly?

The Fresh Diet

Many people eat poorly because they don’t have time to cook. Others say that they don’t know how. Fast food is their easy alternative, but that leads to poor health and weight gain. What can we do? The people at The Fresh Diet have one answer: delicious food delivered to your door that can help you lose weight! What’s not to like about that?

The Amino Diet

Amino acids are the building blocks of our bodies. Twenty (or so) amino acids come together to create the proteins that form our tissues, muscles, hair and skin.. Logically, proteins that we eat are digested and reduced to their amino acid components. Makes sense, right? So it isn’t too surprising that someone has created a diet named after these hard working molecules: the amino diet.

Is Organic Food More Nutritious?

Organic foods are grown without artificial chemicals. They are not treated with synthetic fertilizers or pesticides. Since organic farmers do not use chemicals on their crops, the water that runs off their fields is also free of artificial pollutants. This is all good! But are organic foods necessarily better for you than foods grown with synthetic chemicals? Possibly not, it turns out.
