5 Fat Burning Superfoods

5 Fat Burning Superfoods

Congratulations! You’re already on the right track to a healthier, leaner lifestyle by jumping into HIIT. Throughout each workout, you’re going to burn a lot of fat, but eating the right foods will help you reach your goals faster. Try these fat burning super foods to help you burn more fat. 

Dark Chocolate

That’s right, if you have a sweet tooth, you’re in luck. Your favorite dark chocolate can facilitate fat burning. If your dark chocolate contains at least 70% cocoa, then it will lower the stress hormone cortisol, which has been linked to slowing your metabolism. Dark chocolate also contains caffeine that speeds up your metabolic rate. So your chocolate is working hard to help you burn fat! 


They may be small, but eggs are an entire meal in a shell. Packed with high-quality protein, eggs contain all nine essential amino acids that help build new muscles. On top of building muscles, they also help you burn fat.

Sesame Seeds

These seeds are great little fat burners. They contain proteins that break down fat and help lower cholesterol. Eating sesame seeds can also help you feel full, so that you won't be as tempted to snack on junk foods.


It’s common knowledge that oatmeal lowers bad cholesterol and helps protect against cancer. It’s also packed with fiber which slows down starch digestion. Starch is what brings on intense food cravings. When you don’t crave as much, you make better, healthier food choices.


It's loaded with vitamin C, which is an incredible antioxidant, but it also helps your muscles burn off fat for energy. This will help speed up your metabolism.

Incorporate these superfoods along with regular HIIT exercises into your routine to help burn fat fast. If you have not experienced HIIT training, contact your local FIT36 studio today. Visit
