30 Top Fat Blocker Foods

I’ve just been reading about foods that block fat absorpsion. And do you know what? Most of them are found in the veggie garden and orchard. Of course if you grow your own grains, you’ve got pretty much all of them covered.

So do you want to see the list (alphabetically listed)?

 

Apples Cereals Pears
Apricots Corn Peas
Artichokes Figs Potatoes
Avocados Flaxseed Prunes
Barley Kiwi fruit Pumpkins
Beans Melons Raisins
Berries Mushrooms Rhubarb
Broccoli Nuts Sweet Potatoes
Brown Rice Oats Tropical Fruits
Brussels Sprouts Okra Wheat
Bulgar Oranges Wheat Germ
Carrots Parsnips

… there’s actually 35 on this list, to be more accurate. But as you read through them you’ll notice that they are all things you can grow in your garden – no processed food here at all. Is it really that much of a surprise?

So, the bottom line is that these foods block the absorbtion of fat and they fill you up, as they are high in fiber. So they are being hailed as great weight loss foods. The other great thing is that they are high in vitamins and minerals. Imagine growing your own organic foods that help you lose weight and keep you feeling full.

I just wanted to share this as I found it really interesting.

Oh, I almost forgot…
I was browsing Amazon and found these gorgeous bathroom scales and am amazed at the fantastic feedback they’ve got. Over 3000 customer reviews, mostly raving! All you do to turn them on, is stand on them – pretty cool. Think I’ll grab a set ’cause right now (August 2011) they’re selling at a 42% discount, with a sale price of just $28.95

BTW…. tomorrow’s my first market day – wish me luck!

Happy Organic Gardening, Healthy Living…

  2. you’re very welcome Helen. That’s why I put the list up. Hope it helps you in some way, and that you focus on growing some of these things in your garden.

  3. I just found a fat blocking foods article in Prevention which was simply a ploy to get a subscription in order to get the Dr’s book of healing foods which would tell me the list of foods. I figured I could find a list and there you were. Thank-you so much!!! Fiber is common sense but it’s really nice to have your list.

  4. Thanks so much Julie – this is so wonderful for you to share, it’s great to have a list of them all together.

  5. You’re very welcome, Cassie!

  6. are there any special time that these foods are more beneficial to eat– ie. after meals

  7. Hi Steve,

    I haven’t run across anything that proves there’s a certain time that is best. The point of the list is to incorporate these into your meals. Also, I tend to take a more easy-going approach and not worry about being exactly, scientifically right. I make sure I’m eating more small meals throughout the day, instead of 3 large meals. Also, if I feel snacky, I grab a fruit from the list, or nuts. But if there’s anyone else that would like to chime in on this topic, please do so, it’s the power of the community that helps us all!

    Warmly,
    Julie
