Do Certain Foods Burn Fat?

Jan 25, 2008
Hey Gang Rob The Fired Up Nutritionist Here Again!!

Ok do certain foods burn fat........ This is always a fun question to ask and even more so to hear the responses from people!!

The question of do certain foods burn fat, is responsible for all those ridiculous diets on the market such as the cabbage soup diet and the grapefruit diet!

I have even heard the silly saying "A Grapefruit a day keeps the fat a way"!!

So seriously... when people ask do certain foods burn fat....... What does that mean, do they think the foods themselves FIRE UP the fat and burn it down?? If so no no!! They do not!

So if you were thinking.... "Ok I have heard that certain foods burn fat, so all I have to do is make sure to eat that food a few times a day and poof there goes the fat".... Then I hate to be the one to burst your bubble but it will not happen....

However what does happen is that in a way certain foods burn fat by giving you more energy and speeding up your metabolism..... What happens when you have more energy?? You what? Move More!

Now what happens when you move more?? You Burn Fat Quicker! So yes I guess in a way certain foods do burn fat!

The certain foods that burn fat that most people talk about are the citrus fruits, such as grape fruit, oranges and even lemons and limes!

Now would I depend on just eating an orange or two a day to burn my fat! That's a big negative!!

But what the heck it can not hurt, so throw some citrus fruit into your daily diet and get moving more!

Another way to look at the question do certain foods burn fat is to understand that food combinations and when you eat your meals can also speed up your metabolism and burn more fat.

On this note what you should focus on doing is eating 5-6 smaller balanced meals through out the day. So instead of chomping down on 3 big meals and then snacking away all night......

Have a breakfast, then a mid morning snack, then lunch, a mid afternoon snack, dinner, then an evening snack....

And the best case scenario would be to have a protein source and a carbohydrate source in each of those meals and during your main meals added a healthy fat source such as almonds to it.

And example of a balanced breakfast could be two boiled eggs and your grapefruit or a side of all grain toast for example.

A great snack that I enjoy is cottage cheese mixed with your favorite flavored yogurt.

Even the odd protein bar a few times a week makes for a great snack.

So do certain foods burn fat? I guess the answer is yes and no. When studying this question I would focus more on when to eat my meals and my portion sizes verses the question do foods burn fat. You will see better results!
