What is a Fat Bomb?
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!
