Top 10 Fat Busting Foods
Published: 09 January 2017 (2862 Views)
The key to a healthy lifestyle is eating a balanced diet and getting plenty of exercise. However, if losing weight is your aim then there are a few foods that you should be incorporating into your diet to aid fat burning. Here are our top 10 foods for getting the weight off.

Fat-busting food 1: Smoothies



This is a very easy way to get your essential vitamins and minerals in right at the start of the day. Breakfast smoothies are a great option as they contain a good amount of protein and fibre, which will help to keep you feeling full until your next meal, they're also a great way of packing in your five a day. Many smoothies also speed up your metabolism, helping to aid fat burning throughout the rest of the day.  

Fat-busting food 2: Sushi


Sushi is amazingly healthy and is full of superfoods. What's more, if you're stuck for time you can order a takeout and it's still a healthy choice. Stick to the rolls containing avocado, vegetables, salmon and tuna as the best fat busting aids and you'll also find that they aid healthy digestion and help lower blood pressure too.

Fat-busting food 3: Lentils


This superfood can be easily incorporated into many different dishes and is also a common ingredient used in many Indian dishes. Eating lentils will keep your heart happy and healthy while also supporting your metabolism. They can be found in Indian favourites like tarka dahl and green curries. The demand for convenience worldwide has grown considerably over the past couple of years, which means you can often have these dishes delivered to your door no matter where you are!

Fat-busting food 4: Berries


Eating a selection of berries can provide you with more health benefits than you would first think. Berries can help to improve your overall heart health and are also a good way to control your weight. They can make you feel fuller for longer, therefore preventing cravings for fattening foods. Try blackberries and cherries mixed in with some almonds as a nice snack.

Fat-busting food 5: Peanut Butter



You might be a bit skeptical about this one but peanut butter is often considered a healthy fat due to its monounsaturated fat content, which can aid weight loss. Similarly to lentils, peanut butter can prevent cravings for junk food by making you feel full for longer. Some research shows that peanut butter can also improve your metabolism and help you to burn more calories when resting.

Fat-busting food 6: Red Kidney Beans


A study carried out by the European Journal of Nutrition found that people who eat four servings of beans a week while on a low-calorie diet lost more weight and saw improvements in blood pressure and cholesterol levels than those who did not include beans in their diet. Kidney beans are best used in place of other foods higher in fat and calories.

Fat-busting food 7: Chilli Peppers


Chillies are great fat burners. Usually, eating hot foods make us sweat and feel warm. This is due to capsaicin, a chemical found in chilli, converting energy immediately to heat. This is useful if you're on a diet as the calories are burned straight away rather than stored in your body.

Fat-busting food 8: Spinach


This is really the ultimate superfood as it is extremely rich in nutrients and contains vitamins A and C in plentiful amounts. It also helps to get rid of toxins in the body while being low in calories. This is ideal for weight loss as you are still getting all the nutrients you need without consuming a large number of calories.

Fat-busting food 9: Brown Rice


If you usually have white rice alongside your meals, try swapping it for brown rice, which is a great source of fibre. Brown rice is considered a complex carbohydrate so works to prevent the build up of fat in the body, and it tastes just as good as white rice too.

Fat-busting food 10: Eggs


Great as part of a balanced breakfast or lunch, eggs contain a large amount of protein to keep you feeling full and also improve your metabolic rate, making it easier to burn calories. Eggs also contain vitamin B12, which can help to keep your energy levels up throughout the day.
