A re you con­stantly fail­ing at keep­ing up with your weight loss diet? These seeds can help you burn fat. In­cor­po­rate these tiny su­per foods into your diet by whizzing them up in your morn­ing smoothie or sprin­kling them on top of soups or sal­ads.

PUMP­KIN SEEDS

Pump­kin seeds have more zinc than any other seed, which is im­por­tant for burn­ing fat. Zinc also helps the body pro­duce more testos­terone which can help you build muscle. Founder of Lon­don Doc­tors Clinic, Dr Seth Rankin says, “Fi­bre is es­sen­tial for a healthy di­ges­tive sys­tem and the good news is that pump­kins have half a gram of fi­bre per hun­dred grams, mean­ing you will feel less tempted to snack be­tween meals.”

HEMP SEEDS

These seeds are great for weight loss and brain func­tion. Hemp con­tains twelve grams of pro­tein in just three ta­ble­spoons — which helps boost muscle growth — and Omega 3, which helps burn fat.

CHIA SEEDS

Chia seeds are full of fi­bre, mag­ne­sium, potas­sium, iron and are low in fat. They will help sup­press your ap­petite and leave you feel­ing en­er­gised for longer.

SUN­FLOWER SEEDS

These are great for sprin­kling on sal­ads or soups. Sun­flower seeds are filled with vi­ta­min E, a pow­er­ful an­tiox­i­dant. They are also packed with mag­ne­sium, which en­er­gises you lead­ing to calo­rie burn.

FLAX SEEDS
