Excessive fat in the body can cause a host of health complications such as diabetes, blood pressure, gout and disorders related to the gallbladder. However, there are certain food types that can help you achieve a healthy body with optimal fat levels.

Some food items that help in fat loss are as below:

Greek yoghurt 

Greek yogurt differs from other yogurts because it goes through a straining process to remove the whey. Whey is a liquid that contains lactose, a natural sugar found in milk. Greek yogurt is a popular dairy product. This type of yoghurt contains higher amounts of protein and fewer carbohydrates as compared to regular yoghurt. It will help you feel full for a longer duration and prevent over snacking.

Green tea 

Tea is the most consumed beverage in the world behind water. Green tea has been used in traditional Indian and Chinese medicine. Apart from its antioxidant properties which are beneficial to the body, it also raises the metabolic rate in the body to burn calories. Catechin is a compound present in green tea that aids in removing belly fat.

Chili peppers

 Chili peppers are widely used in many cuisines as a spice to add heat to dishes.  They contain a compound containing capsaicin that helps in boosting metabolism which in turn burns fat.


Chicken mostly consists of lean protein that requires more calories to digest as compared to digesting fats and carbohydrates. Lean protein also helps build muscle in the body which burn more calories when the body is at rest.


Cinnamon is a spice that is made from the inner bark of trees scientifically known as Cinnamomum. Cinnamon aids the body in transporting the sugar into the cells so that it can be used as energy and not stored as fat.


Whole eggs are among the most nutritious foods on the planet, containing a little bit of almost every nutrient you need. Omega-3 enriched and/or pastured eggs are even healthier. Eggs are considered to be a type of super food as they contain plenty of minerals and vitamins. Eggs also contain protein that helps in feeling full for a longer duration.

Non starchy vegetables 

Low starch vegetables are rich in important vitamins and minerals (micronutrients) and water content. This means they are naturally rich in nutrition and low in energy – making them one of the most nutrient dense foods on the planet. Non starchy vegetables such as carrot, squash and zucchini contain fiber that help you feel fuller. They also contain very less carbohydrates so they do not add much calorific value to the body.

Optimizing your nutrition goes beyond choosing a single food, it is important to eat a healthy, low fat foods.
