We all know the fat loss superfoods: avocados, chillies, and leafy green vegetables. All of these have been hailed as fat busting heroes, but 6 new foods are starting to make some waves. They promise to cut fat faster while promoting a lean, toned body. It may be time to hit the supermarket and restock your cupboards! Have a look:
1. Coconut Vinegar
Coconut vinegar is primarily used in Southeast Asian foods and is similar to other vinegars in its fermentation process. It is low in calories and carbs which means it has a low glycemic index, meaning that it will not cause your blood sugar levels to spike. High in potassium, this vinegar can help you process sugars more quickly. The best part is the taste, it packs less of a kick and can be used day to day. It even makes a great detox drink -- mix with warm water and drink in the morning! It is even beautiful in your salad dressings
Cinnamon is great for boosting your metabolism. A faster metabolism means less stored fat. This spice is also a big helper for reducing blood sugar levels. Add some cinnamon to your tea or coffee in the morning or sprinkle some on your oatmeal. For some great ways to work cinnamon into your meals, check out the BodyRock Meal Plan!
Kelp is a major part of the Japanese diet. Rich in minerals and nutrients, kelp speeds metabolism which aids weight loss. Kelp is similar to seaweed and can be used as nice side dish to your regular meals.

4. Turmeric Milk
Turmeric stimulates the gallbladder to produce bile acids. Bile acids help you break down food and digest fat. Because this helps your digestion, turmeric helps you to avoid gas and bloating. Add turmeric to milk and you're set. Just be sure to adjust it to your personal tastes as turmeric can have a bit of a burn.
5. Pomegranate Juice
Full of fiber, pomegranates make you feel full. This, of course, can be useful when trying to cut calories by preventing you from overeating. The antioxidants found in pomegranates are great for digestion which can also help you lose weight.
6. Wormwood Tea
Wormwood is a great for detoxifying your body. It speeds up metabolism and digestion which means your body will rid itself of toxins much more quickly. It is important to note that it can also have adverse effects so you should only drink it in moderation and for no longer than 4 weeks.
