Food is not just something to fill us up, it is medicine and fuel. If you’re looking to lose weight or just maintain a healthier diet, selecting foods that naturally help burn fat and support your energy body will make a world of difference.

Coconut Oil - Coconut oil has hundreds of uses outside the body, but when consumed the benefits are simply incredible! Research shows it helps reduce abdominal obesity in women and regulates healthy thyroid functions. It is also a safe alternative to olive oil when cooking at high heat as it doesn’t break down and produce cancer-causing carcinogens.

Broccoli - Packed with vitamin C, vitamin K, dietary fiber, folate, potassium, and much more, this popular veggie has a wide variety of health benefits. It actually stimulates an enzyme which, in turn, stimulates fat burning in your body. Green veggies are, across the board, very good for your health.

Quinoa - Though difficult to pronounce, this ancient grain has been consumed for thousands of years by civilizations who cherished it for its multiple health benefits. This grain, high in amino acid, actually makes your body work to digest it—which means you literally burn fat just by eating it! It also has about twice as much fiber as any other grain, which relieves constipation and helps remove waste.

Onions - Dreaded ‘onion breath’ be gone! Onions contain anthoxanthins (‘thin’ is even in the name!) which boost your energy, regulate your blood pressure and can even help prevent cancer. A diet rich in onions promotes healthy cholesterol and lower blood pressure.

Spinach - Unlike kale, you can eat this leafy green everyday without encountering digestive problems. It contains thylakoids which have been proven to burn fat by increasing metabolism and even reduce cravings. Also, spinach will give you energy and support brain health.

Grapefruit - Not new to the weight loss community, grapefruit has been highly regarded for years as a fat burner. High in fiber, low in calories, an appetite suppressant, acid reducer, etc—eating grapefruit every day can really improve your health. *Consult your doctor if you’re on medication that could be impacted by grapefruit.

Green Tea - Drinking a lot of fluids while trying to lose weight is incredibly important. Some benefits of green tea include: gentle laxative, increased energy, steady energy boost without crash, antioxidants, improved digestion and the list goes on.

In order to get maximum results from your diet and exercise routine, it is important to eat foods that will nourish your body and mind. Try working some of these ‘superfoods’ into your diet and watch the fat melt away and your overall health improve!

Afterall, “you are what you eat” so be super!
