Can Fat Bombs Help You Lose Weight? Dr. Kellyann on the Dr. Oz Show

What are Fat Bombs?

Fat bombs are little low-carb, high-fat treats that became popular from people on the keto diet… they can be either sweet or savory—that you can eat as a replacement  meal or a fun snack. They’re loaded with fats that curb your appetite and rev up your metabolism. Many people report that fat bombs give them an extra boost of energy for a workout; and help them fight cravings for hours—plus they make your taste buds happy!

Warning! If you’re eating fat bombs to lose weight, you need to eat them as part of a low-carb diet. They can’t do their job if you’re loading up on carbs! Eat them once a day as a snack or to up the level of healthy fats in your diet. Many people eat one for breakfast or lunch on the go—and they’re full.

Here’s what’s great about fat bombs: They’re super easy to make, and you can take them on the go as long as you have a fridge or a little cooler so they don’t melt. They’re guilt-free and can support your low-carb, keto diet!

How Can I Make Fat Bombs? 

There are three ingredients to fat bombs: fat, flavor and fun fillings!

For FATS, try these:

  • Cacao butter
  • Coconut butter
  • Coconut oil
  • Almond butter
  • Coconut cream
  • Bacon fat
  • Avocado
  • Homemade mayonnaise

Make sure you watch the portion control on the fats here—eating a whole pan of bacon or a whole jar of nut butter can really impact your weight loss goals. Check out my portion control guide for more details on this! 

I especially recommend using the healthy fats like almond butter and avocado, because studies show they:

  • Benefit insulin and blood sugar levels
  • Decrease the risk of Type 2 Diabetes
  • Reduce risk of cardiovascular disease 

To add a burst of FLAVOR, here are some ideas:

  • Lemon
  • Dark chocolate
  • Salt
  • Stevia or monkfruit sweetener
  • Herbs and spices like cinnamon, ginger, cayenne, you name it!

And try these FILLING ideas for sweet fat bombs:

  • Nuts
  • Chia seeds
  • Shredded coconut
  • Cacao nibs

For savory fat bombs, try:

  • Smoked salmon
  • Egg yolks
  • Olives
  • Bacon
  • Sun dried tomatoes
