Fat Loss Food

In the latest version of 180 Degree Metabolism, I promised to come up with a video compilation of some of the foods I recommended for fat loss.  For those who haven’t had a chance to read the book, the basic premise was that after you reached a point in which your metabolism was up (increased body temperature), and your hunger was down, you could begin entering an offical fat loss phase. 

In this phase adequate protein is the priority, followed by at least enough starch to get a “protein-sparing effect” and insuring that there is no lean tissue losses as you lose weight.  This equates to nearly equal amounts of starch in relation to protein, or slightly less – although the starch levels can vary depending on your appetite and personal preferences.  Last but not least is fat.  Although some will be so primed for fat loss that there will be no need to eat fat to be able to satisfy the appetite (as fat will be released in large quantities from the adipose tissue), others will need to add small amounts of fat to their food until they find that no-hunger, fat-burning sweet spot.  As always, appetite is the guide and should never be argued with, even if that means not losing an ounce of weight. 

Anyway, although the exact methods and recipes differ slightly from those in the eBook itself, hopefully this video compilation will serve as a good guide for those needing some kitchen guidance.

Shrimp in Spicy Tomato Broth

Back again with another very simple recipe.  I’ve been making this almost daily of late.  It’s quick, it’s easy, and it tastes a lot better than you can imagine.  This is a great staple dish for those of you with strong metabolisms that are ready to part with a little body fat, and is one of the several recipes included in the new 180 Degree Metabolism

Ingredients:

  • 10 frozen shrimp
  • 1/4 cup salsa
  • Splash of water
  • Handful of spinach
  • 1 cup frozen corn
  • 1/4 cup frozen peas
  • Salt
  • 1-2T butter

Directions… Throw it all in a pot and cook it until it’s done – except for the butter that is. Stir that in at the very end.  Takes 5-7 minutes.
