Jillian Michaels' five best weight loss fat burners, from fish oil to green tea

When it comes to weight loss, celebrity trainer Jillian Michaels has become famed as the go-to guru. She's taken on the role of tough-as-nails trainer on "The Biggest Loser"  and written best-selling diet books such as "Slim for Life: My Insider Secrets to Simple, Fast, and Lasting Weight Loss" (click for details). Now Jillian's serving up the best fat-burning foods and supplements - and we've got the skinny here, as reported in the Examiner.

Jillian recommends these fat burners because they're shown to boost metabolism, build lean muscle and accelerate the weight loss process, according to Everyday Health:

  • Green tea shrinks fat cells and slims your waistline, according to a new study. Try Yogi Blueberry Slim Life Green Tea.
  • Fish oil activates proteins in your body that boost fat-burning mechanisms. Take supplements or eat seafood such as salmon. Our favorite: Bumble Bee Foods Wild Pink Salmon, Skinless & Boneless.
  • Pomegranates contain anthocyanins, which halt the growth of fat cells. Try sprinkling on cereal or stir into yogurt: Dried Pomegranate Arils.
  • Berries boost fat-blocking abilities in your body.
  • Drink water to wash away the bloat, stay hydrated and halt fluid retention.

In addition, Jillian has concocted a cookbook to help you make fat-burning meals: "The Master Your Metabolism Cookbook." And for help with both diet and fitness, click here for information on her book "Making the Cut: The 30-Day Diet and Fitness Plan for the Strongest, Sexiest You."
