Have you ever wondered which foods burn the most fat? Well we certainly did so we decided to look into it. While no single food can blast the fat off your body (although how amazing would that be?!) some smart swaps can improve gut health and help you to feel less bloated. Now we’re not going to lie, we were hoping to start this article and find some sort of link to chips causing major weight loss but unfortunately, we couldn’t find that information anywhere. However, when it comes to healthy eating and fat burning, these foods have your back.
Peanut butter is filled with 8grams of protein and 4grams of fibre, which makes it a perfect snack to keep you fuller for longer.

The smashed avocado obsession may actually result in something beneficial besides spending our entire pay-check on it at brunch dates!

This delicious fruit assists the body in using insulin more efficiently, which keeps your blood sugar in check and can assist in burning more calories. Just make sure that when eating it for breakfast or as a snack… you aren’t sprinkling sugar on it!
Quinoa has sort of taken over the world and we can see why. It is absolutely delicious, versatile in cooking and has some amazing health benefits. Quinoa provides long-lasting energy, keeps you fuller for longer and feeds on the good bacteria that live in your gut naturally to prevent bloating.
Food such as tempeh, sauerkraut and miso contain probiotics, which are friendly bacteria that help boost immunity, regulate gut function and say good-bye to bloating. If you aren’t a huge fan of the above you can opt for unsweetened plain Greek Yoghurt instead, simply have it in your morning smoothie or as a snack when you’re on the go.
