Fat-burning foods are food that burn more calories than the calorie content of the food itself. The book Fat-Burning Foods summarizes 10 basic Do's on how to lose weight by eating fat-burning foods. First, eat a much as you want of the 30 fat-burning foods. Eat complex carbohydrates like fruits, vegetables and grains fro these foods should provide 65% of your daily calories. You should eat from 30 to 40 grams fiber daily. Eat no more than 20% t 30% of your total daily calories as fat. If you can, avoid FAT! Up to 10% to 15% of your daily calories can be from animal protein, however, eat no more than 5 ounces of animal protein in a day. Too much red meat is not good for the body. To determine the percentage of calories from protein, multiply the grams of protein by 4, divide that number by the number of calories and multiply by 100. Here is a sample menu of fat-burning foods.

1 cup orange juice
1 slice melon
1 ounce prepared cereal with 1/4 cup skim milk
1 oatmeal muffin

1 pasta meal
1 sliced tomato
1 muffin

curried chicken salad
brown bread
1 slice upside-down cake

1 cup air-popped popcorn

Quite yummy, actually. Now if only we could combine the eating man's diet and fat-burning foods diet, that would be pretty perfect.
