Foods that burn fat? You might think this sounds too good to be true, but our nutritionist Lucy-Ann has come up with a list of foods which do just that: help your body to metabolise fat and burn calories. From protein bars to other surprisingly healthy snacks, here is what you should be eating as part of a balanced diet:
High in fibre and a very low GI, rye bread helps to control appetite and lower glucose levels to support fat burning. Science shows rye bread can be used to decrease hunger feelings both before and after lunch when included in a breakfast meal.
Flaxseeds are an excellent source of the essential omega-3 fat, ALA, which helps to activate certain enzyme pathways involved in fat metabolism. Consumption of essential fats leads to better fat burning and less fat storage. Fibre content also boosts the feelings of fullness.
Protein bars like our Trek protein rich bars are also high in – you guessed it – protein! Again, this is a nutrient which enhances the body’s fat burning abilities.
A low GI fruit, apples contain a high percentage of pectin, a soluble fibre that’s been shown to help with weight loss. A diet high in soluble fibre helps to control appetite, balance blood sugar and promote fat metabolism.
