Are you struggling to find delicious food that burns fat?
Trying to figure out what to eat or not to eat was the most frustrating part during the early days of my transformation journey.
The biggest misconception that I had about food was that healthy food couldn’t taste good and delicious food couldn’t be healthy. There are many “healthy” food options that just aren’t appealing – like who wants to eat raw green vegetables forever. On the flip side the heavily marketed “delicious” food options are weapons of mass fat production, i.e., pizza, hamburger, potato chips, etc.
I was able to find a solution to this very frustrating problem and today I’ll share 7 superfoods that burn fat and satisfy your cravings.

Google “superfood” and you’ll find this definition.
I see superfoods as your go to weapons to help you burn fat and accomplish your SMART goal. I call superfoods Weapons of Mass Fat Destruction because they wreak havoc on your enemy –aka fat.
You can literally transform your body in weeks if your meals include these superfoods.
