What Is A Fat Bomb?

When you begin looking up different keto dessert recipes, you will often come across something called a fat bomb. So, what is a fat bomb? This is nothing more than a small treat or snack that gives you a nice boost of fat. It is often meant to help satisfy a sweet tooth and give you an easy way to eat healthy fats and reach the fat goals each day (usually 60-80%). Fat bombs range in flavors, but often provide a nice sweet treat for you to enjoy while on keto.

Why Are Fat Bombs Important?

As you know, keto isn’t just about cutting carbs…you must also add in more fat. You need healthy fats to enter ketosis, a state where your body burns fat for energy. This is what makes the ketogenic diet so beneficial for weight loss and continued weight management. Some people experience difficulty with their fat intake, which is where fat bombs come in. Here is more information about keto fat bombs and how they can help you.

The Purpose of Fat Bombs

As you know, the main purpose of fat bombs is to increase your fat. There are many days when as much as you try, you just can’t get your fat percentage up high enough. This often occurs when you are too busy to eat much more than a salad, or when you aren’t doing much cooking. During these days, you can enjoy a fat bomb that should already be stored in your refrigerator or freezer and ready to go.

Example of Fat Bombs

Here are some recipes that are popular for fat bombs, though you can definitely change them to fit your personal needs.

Chocolate and Peanut Butter

A classic fat bomb you will see from other people is one made with chocolate and peanut butter. This gives you a sweet treat in a healthy, keto fat bomb. It typically includes peanut butter, cocoa powder that is unsweetened, and coconut oil. Many of the chocolate fat bombs use something to sweeten them like Stevia or Truvia.

Coconut 

Some fat bombs are just meant to boost your fat for the day and still satisfy your sweet tooth. These not only have coconut oil, but often include shredded coconut as well, so they are best if you actually like the taste of coconut. They frequently have other flavors like vanilla, strawberry or even dark chocolate chips that are raw and unsweetened.
 

Summary

When used strategically keto fat bombs can help you reach your desired fat intake as well as being super delicious. However, you can have too much of a good thing. Eating them every day is NOT recommended as it may lead to a weight stall or even cause weight gain. BE WARNED.
