A recent analysis of several clinical trials found that supplementing one’s diet with nuts could help people lose weight, especially when nuts are used as a substitute for other foods, such as complex carbohydrate-loaded bread(5).

One study comparing diets which included either almonds or complex carbohydrates found that the almond group had a significantly greater reduction in their BMI(6).

4. Coconut Oil

Coconut oil is a saturated fat that can provide the body with energy without pesky fat accumulation. The medium-chain fatty acids which make up coconut oil are burned up for fuel by the body, rather than stored as fat(7).

Coconut oil also has a calorie burning effect(8). According to studies, coconut oil can boost your metabolism, causing you to burn calories at a faster rate and giving you more energy as well.
