NUTRITION:
More foods for fat loss!
1.  Cold Water Fish such as Salmon, Whitefish, Mackerel, Sardines, Anchovies are high in the omega-3 fats that aid in lowering body fat and recovery from workouts.  Omega-3s improve insulin sensitivity, decrease inflammation, promote fat loss and improve body composition.

A study of healthy adults showed that taking 4 grams of omega-3s a day for 6 weeks significantly increased lean mass and decreased body fat. Other studies have shown an association of a better body composition in people who eat more than 5 servings of cold water fish a week.  Get the majority of your dietary fats from foods that are high in omega-3 fats.

2. Berries: Blueberries, Strawberries, Raspberries are great for fat loss because they contain fiber, taste great,  contain antioxidants and  lower the amount of insulin the body produces in response to eating them with high-carbohydrate foods. Raspberries, in particular, can help you feel less hungry due to a unique antioxidant called ellagitannins that have been shown to improve the brain’s sensitivity to leptin.

Add a serving of the super fruits mango, pomegranate, and tart cherries for variety. These super fruits have similar benefits to berries and food scientists have called them all “anti-obesity” fruits.
