Your metabolism plays a very important role in weight loss and keeping you healthy. This is because a faster metabolism helps you with digestion and burning fat, even while you’re sleeping. On the other hand, a slow metabolism can negatively affect your weight loss by slowing down the results.
As a slimming spa, we always advise our clients to work on increasing their metabolism for fast, long term results.
If you are not blessed with a healthy metabolism genetically, the good news is that you can still increase your metabolism and speed up your slimming goals. Fill up on the following five foods to increase your body's fat-burning power.
Almonds and other tree nuts are rich in essential fatty acids that help boost your metabolism effectively. As they are small in size and easy to carry, you can use them as a snack to keep you full until your next meal, or can chop them up and use as a topping or side dish.
Vegetables like cabbage, broccoli, and cauliflower are rich in Vitamin B, which has a healthy impact on your metabolism. Making these cruciferous veggies a part of your daily diet will ensure that your body’s metabolism works at a faster pace.
Oatmeal is a top choice to start the day for most people. It is rich in fiber, thus making your body work more to digest it, which helps in burning more calories throughout the day. Moreover, oatmeal can also lower your cholesterol, keeping your heart healthy.
Berries - Raspberries and Strawberries
Apart from being delicious, berries can be a great source of health and nutrition. Berries are rich in anthocyanins, which stop individual fat cells from getting larger. They also help in releasing adiponectin, a hormone that decreases inflammation, lowers blood sugar, and reverses leptin and insulin resistance.
Studies reveal that nearly 20 percent of women are iron deficient, which is bad news for your waistline. Your body can't work as proficiently to burn calories when there is a deficiency of iron. One cup of lentils provides 35 percent of your daily iron needs, resulting in an increased metabolism.
Incorporating these 5 foods in your everyday diet can give a healthy boost to your metabolism, while improving the results of your weight loss efforts.

Thank you so much! Not only I lost some cm but I spent great time here. Each session I came more relaxed. What more can I expect? Thank you again and see you next time.

Great service & ambience at slimspa.
A big thank you to all spa team for your nice welcoming, always smiling, for your patience and efforts to meet any needs. I have not always been an easy going client but you have all been very consistent in your efforts and always very comforting. Slimspa is not only a spa but a lovely family.
Thank you, had a lovely and relaxing lymphatic massage.
Dear Slimspa, You are one of the best spa but there will always be one more room for improvement. Your room lights, more machines so we can enjoy more time to have our treatments. We like all your staff, they are really good. Keep it up! God bless!
Slimspa Team, Thank you for your special treatment. Your spa is very welcoming and professional. I had satisfying results and will come back for sure.
To Slimspa Having a great healthy figure is a compromise and full time job. An awesome diet and gym is the key but for a faster result I tried manual massages and endermologies, the results were amazing, long lasting and meet all my expectations. Cellulite is not about exercise as much as intake of water & estimulation through massages and that's what I got from these treatments & great increase in collagen in my skin. I truly recommend LPG products and treatments,I am happy client.
I had got a very impressive result from my anti cellulite treatments and really like to thank my therapist Soumiys for being so professional , precise and patience . The spa itself is very clean , the staff were friendly and my treatment always starts & ends on time .
Amazing spa and reasonably priced for LPG! I had good results and the therapist Ciby is so knowledgeable and professional. Definitely coming back!
Had a great experience with Hanna. She matched my colour perfectly and I find her cut the easiest to manage and style.
It was a pleasant experience. The staff was friendly, made me feel welcome and explained everything / procedures for my treatment to me. I will definitely go there again for future treatments. Thank you so much. I have already experienced some of the desired results - just two weeks after my first treatment! So I already booked my next treatment and am very excited about possible future results.
I had a wonderful experience with the spa, the combination of treatments was very helpful on my goal to get a better figure. The personal was professional, I believe they have always keep the expectations to reality and would recommend to anyone who wants to achieve results.
The Hydrafacial was totally excellent. The great ambience coupled with the helpful and kind behaviour of the staff, the treatment was not only useful for my skin but also had been a very pleasant experience
Currently undergoing Venus Legacy sessions (with Somaya) and manual anti cellulite massage (Warda) and they do wonders! After four sessions I see the results. Everyone is super accommodating and professional.
Really impressed with this place. They offer all types of solutions for slimming and body contouring. Had cellulite treatment here and was more than satisfied with the results. The staff are very professional and very friendly and they will give you the best advice and solutions.
Efficient, friendly, personalized attention and warm service. Very comfortable going ahead with their treatments owing to their experienced staff.
