1. Eggplant, a powerful fat-burning food
If you are familiar with eggplant dishes, you may have noticed that this vegetable acts like a real sponge that absorbs oil. The flesh also captures and retains fat from the body, facilitating subsequent removal. This fat-burning effect of eggplant is favored for weight loss mainly because of its high content of dietary fiber, especially pectin. For best results, steam or roast eggplant.
