5 Foods To Boost Your Metabolism For Effective Weight Loss

5 Foods To Boost Your Metabolism For Effective Weight Loss

August 14, 2016

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

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.

Cruciferous Vegetables

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

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.

Lentils

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.
