6 Fatty Foods That Actually Burn Fat

Food - general


To lose weight you just need to cut fat out of your diet, right? Wrong.

Dietary fat has been demonised for decades. In reality, it's essential for a healthy diet and weight loss!

Fat is not the enemy, and these 6 fatty foods have so many benefits for your body, including helping curb that gut.


Avocados are packed full of monounsaturated fats and are incredibly nutritious. They are loaded with fibre, and even have more potassium than a banana.

Adding avocado to your day is easy - you can put it in salads, meals, or even your man shake! Just keep it to a quarter or half per day.


Nuts are full of healthy monounsaturated fats, protein, and vitamins. Studies have also shown they help to reduce risk factors for metabolic syndrome such as cholesterol and high blood pressure.

Make sure to include nuts as one of your daily snacks, they taste great and are incredibly nutritious.


Oily fish like Salmon, Tuna, and Mackeral are incredibly rich in Omega-3 fatty acids, which have been shown to reduce inflammation and potentially lower the risk of heart disease, cancer, and arthritis.

These fish are also an incredible source of quality protein.

Not a fan of fish? You can also get these amazing benefits from chai seeds and flaxseed, which is why we put both in The Man Shake!

Dark Chocolate

It's official, dark chocolate is seriously a superfood.

Containing healthy fats, it also contains vitamins A, B, and E; calcium; iron; magnesium; and antioxidants in the form of flavonoids.

But don't go smashing a whole block just yet! Enjoy a square or two a day.


Eggs are an amazing source of protein and omega-3 fatty acids. Each egg contains around 5g of fat, only 1.5g of which is saturated.

Studies have found that the cholesterol in eggs has no effect on your blood cholesterol levels, so start cracking to reap the benefits.

Grass-Fed Meat

That's right, grass-fed beef contains up to 50% more healthy omega-3 fatty acids than regular beef. It is also higher in key nutrients like antioxidants and vitamins.

And, let's be real, grass-fed beef tastes better anyway, so head down to your local butcher for a good cut.
