  • Let’s take a look at five fat burning foods.
  • 1. Almonds:

  • Nut consumption may help weight loss as you will feel full faster and eat less.
  • They will also lessen your food cravings.
  • Tip: Just eat them raw with some pink Himalayan salt or try our almond milk.
  • 2. Figs:
  • Figs are an excellent source of dietary fiber, providing 14.6g per cup, which is 58% of the recommended daily value. Fiber facilitates digestion and helps us feel full, so we will eat less.
  • Make sure to get fresh figs while you can, because their season is short. However, dried figs are sold year around and have as many health benefits.
  • Tip: Eat them whole or chop them and add in salads for an interesting twist.
  • 3. Grapefruit:
  • This healthy fruit is a great source of vitamin C and E, which both help to reduce cell damage and improve blood circulation, which can prevent cellulite. Grapefruit juice is one of the best fat-burning foods and a cellulite remover. 
It helps metabolize sugar in the blood and reduces fluid retention.
  • Tip: Eat a grapefruit for breakfast with some raw organic honey and cinnamon drizzled on for taste.
  • 4. Lentils:
  • Organic lentils and other legumes are great sources of iron, which is a nutrient that the body needs to metabolize fats that we eat. They also reduce cholesterol.
  • Tip: Add some organic lentils to a soup to boost the iron levels in your diet.
  • 5. Oranges:
  • A study from Arizona State University shows that a lack of vitamin C reduces the body’s ability to use fat as fuel, which leads to fat storage in the body. Organic oranges are a great source of vitamin C and can help your body burn fat naturally.
  • Tip: Add an orange your favorite smoothie or just eat one raw.
  • AS ALWAYS: Check with your health practitioner before you change your diet. These organic foods are not meant to replace any treatment or drugs you are taking. If you are taking any medication, DO NOT consume grapefruit or its juice as it may interfere with the metabolism of the drugs.
