It’s true, certain foods can actually help you burn fat. There are nutrients and compounds found in some foods that help increase your metabolism, use energy to digest, burn fat, and build muscle. And combining these foods with regular exercise and a healthy lifestyle will help you shed the fat, and the pounds, faster.

You don’t need to have a strict, boring diet. A lot of foods that help burn fat are full of flavor, can be cooked in a variety of ways, and can be eaten as a snack or part of a meal. To lose fat and weight, and to get much-needed energy for exercise, eat these ten foods that help burn fat…

1. Avocados

A lot of people think avocados are bad for you because they’re high in fat. But the truth is, avocados are made up of good fat, and can help your body turn off fat storage hormones. The healthy monounsaturated fats in avocados turn off your hunger, with plenty of protein and fiber to keep you full and give you the energy needed for a good workout. You get the necessary fuel and the fat is readily burned off during exercise. One of the carbs found in avocados also encourages and increases calcium absorption, an integral part of getting rid of unwanted fat. So bring on the guacamole!

This means that even though avocados are considered a high calorie, high fat food more than two thirds of the calories in avocados come from monounsaturated oleic aci, which the body utilizes as a slow burning energy source. So consider monounsaturated fats over polyunsaturated fats to improve blood sugar balance and glycemic control, which can prevent weight gain and diabetes.
