The Most Effective Metabolism Boosting Foods You Should Try
There are many weight loss programs based on boosting the metabolism in order to speed up fat burning and digestion. There are drugs that help with that but there are also metabolism boosting foods you can add to your daily diet in order to burn fat and feel healthier.
Here are a few of the helpful foods to consider for improving your metabolism:
1. Egg Whites
Egg whites are rich in protein and in Vitamin D, as well as in branched-chain amino acids. According to nutritionists, all these help speeding up your metabolism.
2. Lean Meat
Lean meat is one of the most famous metabolism boosting foods. Very rich in iron, it helps the body get enough of this mineral which is absolutely essential for the good functioning of the body.
3. Chili Peppers
As strange as it may seem, chili peppers are among the most effective metabolism boosting foods. Their effectiveness comes from their capsaicin content. Capsaicin is a chemical compound with very good anti-inflammatory properties. It helps improving the blood circulation, thus simulating all other organs and cells in the body.
There are studies that show people who drink coffee have an average metabolic rate 16% higher than non-drinkers or those who drink decaf.
5. Green Tea
Green tea contains EGCG, a compound that promotes fat burning, as indicated by several studies. A few cups of green tea per day might help you boost your metabolism more than you can imagine. Just try it for a week or two and you are going to see the difference.
There are other foods that can help you boost your metabolism such as whole grains, lentils and milk. Ideally, you should add to your daily diet at least three – four servings of such foods, if not more. The better your metabolism is, the healthier you are going to be. Food will get digested faster, the intestinal transit will happen faster and your body will enjoy the energy supplied by nutrition without you having to feel bloated or constipated because of a very slow metabolism.
Last but not least, you should know that exercise is as important as food in this process of transition to a higher metabolic rate. Always make sure you walk for at least 30 minutes a day if you can’t do more difficult stuff. It may seem hard in the beginning, but once you are going to enter a routine, you are even going to miss your walk or your exercises if you will need to skip them some days.
Food, exercise and a good night sleep are the basic elements of a healthier and happier life, so don’t waste any more time. Start today, change your diet for the better and go out there to enjoy the fresh air and the movement that will keep you young, healthy and in an excellent shape even in your elderly years.
If you only eat junk food and sit on the couch all day long, you are going to be sorry sooner or later.
