Dr Oz: Fat Bombs + Low-Carb Diet
You can find recipes for fat bombs all over the internet which is why Dr Oz wanted to ask nutritionist Kellyann Petrucci whether consuming these fat bombs was actually a good idea. Fortunately, she explained that they are because they’re made from high fat, low carbohydrate, and low sugar ingredients to make a treat that’s good for you. The most important thing everyone needs to know is that in order for them to work in your favor, they should be eaten as part of a low-carbohydrate diet and you can’t eat too many.

Dr Oz: How To Make A Fat Bomb
So how do you know what sort of fat bomb would work best for you? It’s important to understand that the base of every fat bomb is a healthy fat. You can use coconut oil, almond butter, mayonnaise, or avocado. They help stabilize your blood sugar which in turn makes you feel much better overall.
Once you have a healthy fat as a base, you want to choose some add-ins for flavor. Kellyann suggested ginger, cinnamon, lemon, chocolate, stevia, or cacao chips. Then for a filling, you can go for a sweet or savory taste. Some options for fillings include sun-dried tomatoes, eggs, olives, salmon, cacao nibs, chia seeds, almonds, walnuts, or coconut.
Perhaps the best thing about fat bombs is that you can use them as a meal replacement or a snack. They might make for one easier breakfast for people on the go first thing in the morning.
