10 Fat Burning Superfoods

Burning fat isn’t the easiest thing in the world to do so you need all of the help you can get to slim down and tone-up. Most nutritionists and trainers will tell you that 80% of your results will come from your diet. So it makes sense to fuel your body with the nutrients it needs to get the job done.  One of the best ways to do that is to incorporate specific fat burning superfoods that can help to rev your metabolism and burn that stubborn fat.

What is a superfood? There is no exact scientific definition for superfoods, but they are generally accepted as foods that contain high amounts of vitamins and minerals needed by the body to function.  They are also known as good sources of antioxidants that help protect the body against cell damage and the progression of debilitating diseases.

Different superfoods work differently. While some help to keep your extra weight off by filling your stomach with nutrient dense calories and fiber, others help boost your metabolism by helping you build lean muscle.

Another action of superfoods for weight loss is that they provide the body with extra energy to sustain daily activities. This will help to keep you energized and motivated to complete the workouts necessary to achieve your fitness goals.

So, without further ado, here is a list of 10 fat burning superfoods.


Tomatoes contain a fat-burning compound called 9-oxo-ODA (octadecadienoic) which is found in red fruits. It also contains lycopene and beta-carotene that can help in reducing stubborn belly fat. Tomatoes are also low in calorie and high in fiber which makes it a filling fat-burning superfood.
