Number 1 Food that Burns Fat

Oatmeal for burning fat

If you could choose one source of complex, starchy carbohydrate for a fat loss program, this would be it!  Gluten-free oatmeal is the one carbohydrate food that virtually 100% of all bodybuilders and fitness models eat on a daily basis.

What makes it so great?

Well, although it’s a starchy carbohydrate, gluten-free oatmeal has a nice balance between carbs, protein and good fat.  A half a cup contains 3 grams of fat, 27 grams of carbs and 5 grams of protein.  The low glycemic index, combined with the presence of protein and fat makes oatmeal a very slowly released carb – exactly what you’re looking for when you want to get lean.

Make sure you choose the all-natural oats especially old fashioned oats.  Stay away from sweetened and or flavoured oatmeal packets. Gluten-free oatmeal is delicious with natural (sugar-free) apple sauce and cinnamon. 

Or try some crushed walnuts or flaxseeds in your morning oats, which will give your “porridge” a nice crunchy texture while adding those desirable “good fats” we all need.  For a complete meal, try a couple of scoops of protein powder, preferably whey-based.
