My 5 Favourite Fat Burning Foods

Foods in stomachFat ‘burning’ foods are all the rage these days. Of course, they don’t literally burn fat. What they do is help you lose weight through doing a host of helpful things like keeping you full and increasing your metabolic rate. With that said, here’s a short list of my favorites and why I like ‘em!

1. Nuts – When I’m hungry, I love grabbing a handful of nuts (hah!). I take a small zip-lock bag to work and munch on them during the day. Try and stay away from salted, just go for plain.

2. Cherry Tomatoes – These are awesome when you’ve got a hankering for something sweet. I keep a fresh bowl on my kitchen counter-top and pop one or two when I’m passing.

3. Watermelon – I love eating watermelon with a bowl of naturally sweetened yoghurt. It’s also great to eat by itself on a summer’s day. My dog loves it, too!

4. Popcorn  – This is another great little snack you can make in under 5 minutes. Air-popped is best. Add your own flavorings to a plain bag and enjoy.

5. Eggs – The reason I love eggs is they’re just so versatile. I like to cook 1-2 hard-boiled eggs, refrigerate them overnight, chop them up and mix with mayo and curry powder, then add to salads and crackers.
