You want your body to utilize the fuel you are giving it, not store it as body fat because you are putting in too much of the wrong stuff!
On the other hand, there is good news! There are foods which can actually help you to burn body fat and keep your weight under control

Get Slim with Grapefruit
Fresh grapefruit for breakfast?
Grapefruit might not be the best-tasting food there is but boy does it deliver a hard punch when it comes to fat loss.
Grapefruit is said to be a negative calorie food, which means that your body uses more calories to burn it than what it contains. Grapefruit also has a good amount of fibre, around 2 grams in half of the medium-sized fruit. Fibre-rich fruits make you feel fuller for longer meaning you are less likely to snack etc. This is because fibre slows the rate at which your stomach empties, lengthening the time of digestion.
Glorious Green Tea
Green tea is one of natures little elixirs for weight loss. A cup of the green goodness contains lots of antioxidants which help to fight diseases such as cancer and high cholesterol. Green tea is also great for fat loss and speeds up your metabolism due to the caffeine and Catechins it contains. Try swapping your normal cup of tea for drinking green tea during throughout the day as this can help you burn an additional 75–100 calories per day. For maximum benefits try drinking a cup of green tea with every meal you have during the day.
Lean Mean Proteins
If you want to lose weight, make protein the focus of your meals. Protein is slower digesting meaning you stay fuller for longer. Protein shakes are also a great idea if you need something to eat while you are on the go. For example a good protein shake for breakfast which would provide you with a slow release of energy would consist of 1 scoop of protein, 25g of oats, 1 teaspoon of peanut butter blended with unsweetened almond milk. Eating a protein-rich diet can help people lose weight because it can help them avoid overeating.
