Food combination rules to follow
Combine spicy food with protein
By doing this you’re guaranteeing that your calorie burn will increase throughout the day.
Not only does protein have staying power, meaning it will keep your stomach full for a longer period, but it can also help burn more fat.
Combine healthy fats with carbohydrate-rich foods
The truth is we digest carbohydrates very fast, therefore, it won’t keep you full very long.
They give us the energy and fuel we need for our regular workouts.
But when you add healthy fats it digests more slowly which means that you feel fuller much longer and will help to curb your cravings.
Great examples of healthy fats include olive oil, coconut oil and avocado.
Combine water with high-fiber foods
Have you ever tried to eat dry oats without water?
It feels like all the water from your mouth and throat just evaporated!
That’s because foods high in fiber needs plenty of water to properly digest.
When you eat the fiber-rich foods they stay in your digestive track much longer, which means it help to reduce food cravings.
So whenever you’re snacking on some dry whole grain food, make sure that you do so with a tall glass of water.
