Did you know that you can combine food to help you burn fat, beat bloating and also boost your metabolism?

Sounds too good to be true, right? Well according to Dietitian Vidhi Chawla teaming up different food items can actually be really beneficial when it comes to losing weight.

“There are certain food combinations that can help you burn fat, beat bloating and boost metabolism. Do not skip your breakfast; it may cause you to not consume adequate amounts of fibre and nutrients. It can also increase bouts of acidity,” she tells The Indian Express.
