Is there really such a thing as fat-burning food? Well, of course there is — we’ve compiled a whole list for you. But really, when you dig around and do some research, a food that actually burns fat seems to be more of a myth. There actually is some truth, however, behind the science as to why this catchy “food burning” phrase was coined.

It is true that foods do indeed have qualities that require more energy to digest. Others stimulate certain hormones that cause the metabolism to speed up. And still others cause changes to our body temperature, which requires more energy to maintain to where it needs I be.
