While totally optional, certain ingredients can provide a fat-burning boost, so include these whenever possible for maximum results:
Thanks to the spicy compound capsaicin, hot peppers like cayenne actually rev up metabolism while suppressing appetite.
This effect is especially potent if you aren’t eating much spicy food to start with, so if you hate spicy food… this is the perfect trick for you!
It’s not just the caffeine in green tea that boosts metabolism (but that helps too).
The antioxidant EGCG in green tea has been shown to literally burn fat by taking it out of your fat cells and using it as energy. The best part? It’s mostly belly fat.

If you’re a coffee lover, you might have rejoiced at learning that drinking between 4 and 6 cups per day can increase your metabolism enough to burn an extra 150 calories per day.
But there’s a catch…
This effect is temporary, as you will build up a tolerance. So I suggest rotating your coffee intake, with at least 1 week per month totally coffee-free.
Note: caffeine has undesired side-effects such as energy drain. Therefore it is not a recommendation to drink more coffee.
Having said that, if you’re already drinking more than a cup a day, it might be a good idea to rotate and keep one coffee-free week per month.
This is your chance to try natural energizers that don’t have the negative side effects of coffee, and at the top of the list - Maca. Click here to learn more about maca and other ingredients with exceptional health benefits.
Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV)
In order to burn fat, you need to regulate blood sugar, and this vinegar has been shown to do just that.
By reducing blood sugar levels after meals, vinegar has been proven to help obese people lose 4 pounds.
It's not all good with ACV and here are some of its known lights and shades.
Thanks to medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs), coconut oil can help you lose weight and especially cut down your belly fat. MCTs are great for fat-loss because the body uses them as energy before more easily than other fats.
The fat in coconut oil also helps reduce appetite and leads you to consume fewer calories overall.
