Avocados actually are ultra-speed fat burner. It plumps up the membranes of cell, and enables them to fasten the fat burning hormones, and switches off the body’s fat storing hormones. It also fastens metabolism rate while protecting body’s energy producing cells from damage.

2.      Whole Grains

While breaking down whole foods, human body burns double ratio of calories as compared to that while breaking down processed foods. And it gets even tripled in case of fiber enriched whole foods such as brown rice and oatmeal etc.
