The New Fat Bombs to Help You Lose Weight

Considered one of the most trending foods these days, fat bombs are making a splash in the health and diet world. While at first glance, the words fat bomb may turn people off, they are actually low-carb, high-fat treats that took off in popularity thanks to the keto diet. Either sweet or savory, you can enjoy these snacks in between meals or as a meal replacement. According to nutritionist Kellyann Petrucci MS, RD, these fat bombs can help curb your appetite, boost your metabolism, and regulate blood sugar at the same time.

Healthy Fats

When making a fat bomb, you can use healthy fats like cacao butter, coconut butter, coconut oil, almond butter, coconut cream, avocado, and mayonnaise. By eating smaller portions of these ingredients, you satisfy your craving for fat without having to dive into a whole plate of bacon, which can pack on the pounds. Dr. Petrucci enjoys almond butter and avocados in particular, because studies have shown that these foods can help regulate blood sugar levels.
