Unlikely But Medically Proven Diet Tips

Well, I intend to try a few of these 15 medically proven diet tips – nothing to lose. A svelte GroovyChick en route – watch this space. Likey, likey the red wine tip.

1.    People who have acupuncture once a week lose an extra 4.5 kg (10 lb) in three months. Applying needles at pressure points is thought to trigger electrical pulses that suppress appetite.

2.    Sprinkle cinnamon into a yoghurt each day to burn fat. The spice is a powerful metabolism-raiser. Half a teaspoon a day is enough to burn an extra kilo a month.

3.    A glass of carrot juice a day will help you lose 4lb over 12 weeks compared with non-juice drinkers. It’s high in fibre and nutrients that help burn blubber.

4.  Take a calcium supplement. You’ll lose 2.6 per cent more fat than those who           don’t.

5.    Red meat can help you lose weight. It packs a lot of the proteins that help you maintain muscle mass – and muscle burns four times as many calories as fat.

6.     Drizzle on some soy sauce to shed the pounds. Research shows soy proteins interact with receptors in our brains that tell us we’re full.

7.    A daily glass of red wine can stop you putting on fat, especially around your belly. Resveratrol from the grapes inhibits the development of fat cells around your waist.

8.    Eat pomegranates. Their seed oil reduces the body’s abilities to store fat, and they’re so sweet they’ll curb your desire for sugary snacks.

9.    Sip green tea. It contains a compound that reacts with caffeine to boost fat oxidation and resting metabolism by 20 per cent.

10.  Eat chilli con carne once a week. An enzyme in kidney beans tells the body to break down stored fat instead of carbohydrates for energy, while mince boosts your metabolism.

11.  Choose spinach ahead of other greens. It packs double the fibre, which helps the body process fats more efficiently.

12.  Swap your regular cheese for goat’s cheese. It’s 40 per cent lower in calories than cheese made from cow’s milk.

13.  Eat pineapple. It’s not only a great snack to spark your metabolism, it contains bromolina which helps break down protein.

14.  Add paprika to meals. Its ground red peppers contain six times the vitamin C of tomatoes, crucial for helping your body to turn fat into energy.

15.  Take conjugated linoleic acid capsules every day. These acids, which are found in red meat and dairy products, help to slow the growth of fat cells, so you will lose 9 per cent more fat over the course of a year.
