It’s time for summer fun—and for most of us that means breaking out the bikini or swimsuit. Get your body in gear by eating the foods that help you feel slimmer and sassier. Check out these 10 fat-blasting foods to get bikini ready.
Choosing fat-blasting foods is only one part of staying fit and healthy for life. Regular exercise is a must, too!

Filled with fiber and rich in pectin, a substance that stops cells from absorbing fat, this superfood is one of the easiest bikini body foods to fit into your day. Grab one to snack on or blend a Cinnamon Apple Smoothie.
Wild-caught salmon spurs the body’s production of leptin, which naturally suppresses the appetite so you’re less likely to overeat. Try Salmon Provencal with Wilted Spinach and Olives, a yummy dish that’s easier to make than it sounds!
3. Whole Grains
The body burns more calories digesting these skinnylicious fat-blasting foods than refined (processed) grains, like white bread. This week, add Whole Grain Penne with Greens & Beans to the menu.

Sliced fresh avocado is one of the tastiest foods for burning fat. It delivers hunger-busting fiber and a serving of monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFAs), which contribute to belly fat burn. Avoid processed dips, and treat your body to healthy Avocado Dip instead.
All berries are loaded with nutrition, but we especially like raspberries because they offer ketones, compounds that help the body break up fat more effectively. Who knew fat-blasting foods could taste so sweet? Indulge in Raspberry-Peach Sorbet.
6. Leafy Greens
From kale to spinach to broccoli, leafy greens fill you up on fiber and nutrients—without excess calories. For a healthy lunch, wrap up a Spinach & Bean Burrito Wrap.
