5 Surprising Fat Burners to Help You Lose Weight the Natural Way

Ever wish eating helped you lose weight? Wish granted! We’ve got the scoop on five superfoods that actually help shed pounds—and easy and delicious ways to add them to your diet.



Almonds
Why you need them: Eating a handful of almonds a day, along with a healthy diet, might help you zap fat, suggests research published in the International Journal of Obesity. Diet-study participants who ate almonds daily for six months lost 18% of their body fat. Those who followed a diet with the same amount of calories and protein but swapped almonds for an equal number of calories in complex carbs (like wheat crackers) lost only 11%.

Best way to work them in: Theyre a great at-your-desk snack—22 almonds add up to one serving. Another idea: chop them finely and add them to oatmeal or yogurt.
