Although there is no food that is going to burn body fat, there are some foods that can be effective to add to your diet if your goal is to stay in a calorie deficit. In this blog we will explore what type of foods you could consider adding into your diet to make your life easier while dieting.

What makes a good food for fat loss?

A food is that is good for fat loss are ones that are satiating for less calories. Foods that are high in protein also have a higher thermic effect, meaning your body uses more energy to digest the food. Taking this into account let's have a look at the list of the top 10 foods.

1. Chicken Breast

Chicken breast is high in protein and it is also one of the leanest protein sources available. Opting for chicken breast over an alternative like chicken thighs will save some calories as chicken breast is the leaner source. 

2. Potatoes

Potatoes are one of the best carbohydrate sources available when it comes to staying in a calorie deficit. This is because they are high on the satiety scale while being low in calories. Be mindful of how you cook them as this can make the calories add up.

3. Greek Yoghurt

Greek yoghurt is another great option for a high volume food that is low in calories and high in protein, ticking the boxes to make it a great addition to a diet. 

4. Oats

Oats really are a superfood in general and they're also a great option if you are looking to stay in a calorie deficit. Oats are high in fibre meaning they leave you feeling full compared to other food options. Oats can also be mixed with protein powder to give them that extra protein boost.
