Tomatoes are rich in vitamin C and other natural acids that help your liver break down fat faster.
Bean can stabilize blood sugar which reduces the amount of fat storage hormones our bodies make.
Onions are loaded with chromium, which also helps with fat storage hormones.
Cayenne kicks up the heat and kicks up the metabolism up to 20%.
Garlic might actually keep pre-fat cells turning into fat cells.
Cilantro and Parsley
These herbs help flush toxins from your system.
Mushrooms provide protein, vitamin C and iron.
