We’re heading into a marathon of eating and boozing with this holiday season. You can either surrender now, knowing that you’re going to be packing on the pounds, or you can take a stand and minimize the damage that you’re sure to do to your body.

I’ve already given up on this battle. I started eating Christmas cookies left and right, and can’t wait for the big feast. If you’re ready to fight the good fight, reach for these fat-burning foods:

Salmon– Salmon boosts your metabolism and melts fat because it is full of Omega-3 fatty acids. It’s good for heart health.

Turkey– Turkey is packed with fat burning protein and is even leaner than chicken. Be sure to avoid turkey that is injected with fats, such as butter.

Broccoli– Broccoli not only burns fat, it is also low in fat. Due to the fiber, calcium and vitamin C in broccoli, it boosts metabolism.

Hot Peppers– Peppers are filled with capsaicin, a substance that causes the body temperature to rise, which helps shed unwanted inches around the waistline.

Asparagus– Asparagus cleanses the body because it has chemicals called asparagines, which bust up fat cells and get those cells flushed out.
