3 Foods That Actually Burn Fat

Oct 30, 2020

Did you know that some foods can burn body fat while you rest?  It may sound too good to be true, but some foods can boost your metabolism and burn fat. Finding these foods may seem stressful, but I’m sharing my favorite foods that burn fat and taste delicious!

1. Fish

Fish is an excellent source of protein. It is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which help reduce inflammation, along with decreasing the risk of heart disease. The high amount of protein in fish can leave you feeling fuller after a meal, increases your metabolism, and helps burn fat while your body is resting. 

Try adding more fish into your meals throughout the week. Get started with some of my favorite recipes like baked salmon with butternut squash and kale or cod with balsamic cherry tomatoes. Both are packed with protein and healthy fats to help your body burn fat quicker!

2. Greek Yogurt

Greek yogurt is another food that helps burn fat. It is a great source of protein, potassium, and calcium. It also contains probiotics that can reduce bloating and keep your gut healthy. 

The high protein in greek yogurt boosts your metabolism, causing fat to burn quicker. It also contains conjugated linoleic acid, which promotes weight loss and fat burning. Make these lemon blueberry frozen yogurt bites your go-to snack to keep you feeling full in between meals and curb those unhealthy cravings.

3. Eggs

Raise your metabolism and burn calories throughout the day by incorporating more eggs into your diet. Egg-based breakfasts are rich in protein and can keep you feeling full for hours. Try these egg white muffin cups that also contain greek yogurt for an extra boost of protein. Or, make a delicious egg white frittata for your next breakfast to get a boost of protein at the start of your day!

These high protein, fat burning foods are delicious and easy to add into any meal. If you want to learn more about other foods that will help you burn fat and meet your health goals, connect with me to discover the ways that I can help you live your healthiest life.
