First, we discuss which foods contribute to weight loss and why it works.
For example, there are certain foods that increase energy expenditure. Meaning, they have metabolic boosting properties.
Metabolism is the process by which our body converts what we eat and drink into energy. Often when we diet, our metabolism slows down because we need less energy to maintain our body.
Having a high metabolic rate not only burns calories but also gives us more energy.
There are also ingredients in foods that increase fat oxidation, which can increase fat burning by as much as 10-15%.
Furthermore, many scientific studies now show when a person adds these fat burning foods to their diet, they can lose weight permanently. You can learn more information in Dr. Michael Greger's new book "How Not To Diet."

Today's podcast explores the root of all disease, chronic inflammation. Also, the anti-inflammatory foods that can help reduce and fight inflammation.
Inflammation is part of the body's response to infection and tissue damage, and it is crucial to the healing process.
But over the last 15 years, studies show that when chronic inflammation lingers, it leaves your body in a constant state of alert.
This can lead to chronic diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and even Alzheimer's disease.
Preventing chronic inflammation and knowing the signs is crucial.
Inflammation may be associated with general flu-like symptoms like fever, chills, headaches, loss of energy, and muscle stiffness.
Inflammation can also cause redness, joint pain, joint stiffness, or a swollen joint.
It can also affect organs like the heart and cause shortness of breath or fluid retention.
Chronic inflammation can also lead to weight gain.
Protect yourself by learning the causes, symptoms, and treatment of inflammation.
Discover all the anti-inflammatory foods you can consume and how to include them in your diet.
