Anything that helps BURN FAT....... I'm all over it!
Especially if its some sort of FOOD! LOL
Today, I have a deelish protein shake that is not only yummy, but yes, it helps BURN FAT. Its because it has shredded coconut and it helps burn fat. Shredded coconut has tons of benefits, check it out. And though some foods can help you burn fat, EXERCISE helps you BURN TONS OF FAT.
By the way, thanks to all My YouTube Subscribers for trying out all the WORKOUTS. I love getting your feedback on there. So far, the most viewed recently has been the CELLULITE FIGHTING BUTT WORKOUT. I knew you were going to love that one. Hey, if you haven't SUBSCRIBED yet, make sure you do so that you can get FREE ACCESS to all my workouts.
Oh, and you know what else adding shredded coconut would be amazing in?
My "Fabulous Pancakes" from My Eat To Be Fit Healthy Recipes Book. They are cinnamony and delicious as they are but since coconut is so good for you and tasty, it would make these pancakes even more yum. These pancakes are one of my favorite breakfast dishes. They are right up there with the Blueberry Pancakes I told you about yesterday.
Health Benefits of Shredded Coconut:
- The fats in shredded coconuts travel faster to the liver for immediate oxidation (burn), so it increase fat burn and metabolic rate.
- Anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties, which help fight infections.
- Good for the heart.
Ok, let me give you this recipe already, but you better try it. I promise you won't regret it, its great for a post workout shake. Its really yummy, and its chocolate. Almost as good as my favorite Protein Shake Recipe for Nutty Choco-Nana Shake. If you want that recipe too, its on My Pinterest Board For Shakes and Smoothies.
