The Fat Killers in Nature

Who wouldn't want a miracle pill that makes all our love handles disappear? Unfortunately, this does not exist. But there are small miracle cures from nature, which support and accelerate the weight loss process. They are natural remedies that boost your fat metabolism and increase calorie consumption.


Hot makes you slim. Chilies contain capaicin, an alkaloid that produces a heat and heat stimulus in the body. This not only brings beads of sweat to your forehead, but also increases your personal energy consumption. This is because your body has to compensate for the increased heat production and at the same time consumes more calories. How about adding some chili flakes to your next piece of meat or vegetable?


Grapefruits score high on naringin, a bitter substance that stimulates fat breakdown in the liver. Plus, this substance is responsible for the flavor. The liver normally stores fat, but naringin affects three proteins to break down more fat and lower "bad" LDL cholesterol.


Just like chili, ginger contains pungent ingredients that stimulate heat production, circulation and digestion. As a result, your energy levels increase.

Tip: Pour hot water over a few slices of ginger and add a dash of lemon juice. Ginger tea is not only a super fat killer, but also the secret weapon against colds. And to make the tea a little sweeter, you can add a teaspoon of honey.

In your next porridge or yogurt, you should add cinnamon. This is because studies have shown that cinnamon boosts glucose uptake by cells, which means less insulin needs to be secreted. Insulin is a hormone that inhibits fat burning. When buying cinnamon, you should choose high-quality cinnamon, or Chinese cinnamon. The effect is much stronger than with conventional Ceylon cinnamon.


L-carnitine should be a familiar term to every experienced athlete. It is considered the top fat killer from nature, it is a protein from two amino acids. L-Carnitine is indispensable for the fat metabolism, it enables the decomposition of long-chain fatty acids. Your body can produce L-carnitine itself to a certain extent - but it is dependent on vitamin B6, vitamin C, niacin and iron. You absorb the majority through food. You find the protein mainly in red meat, e.g. lamb and beef.


Iodine is a component of the thyroid gland hormones, which stimulates the energy metabolism even in rest phases - and thus also the fat burning. iodine suppliers are sea creatures such as algae, cod and salmon. These also have a high protein content.

Dietary fiber

Dietary fiber cannot be digested by the body, but that is not necessarily a bad thing. Because they have an enormous swelling function. By stretching the stomach wall, the brain releases messenger substances that convey a feeling of satiety. That means you'll be fuller longer, despite low calories. Quinoa and chia seeds are among the miracle foods that keep you full longer. If you like it more classic, go for legumes like lentils, beans or peas.


These foods are super easy to incorporate into your diet. However, you should not overdo it, because more does not necessarily mean better. In addition, you should focus on high-quality products, as these often contain more of the substances mentioned and stimulate the fat burning faster or better.
