Garlic: You might not like the mouth odour after eating garlic but, this ingredient is used in preparing almost all the Indian curries and sabzis. Garlic is an effective fat-burning food as it contains Allicin (a compound) that helps lose weight. Allicin lowers bad cholesterol levels and fat deposits from the body. It is like an appetite suppressant that controls cravings thus making you feel fuller for a longer duration.
