You may have heard that if you boost your metabolism it will support you lose weight and burn more calories?
So if quick and easy weight loss is your goal you meet might be interested in these five simple ways you adopt to boost your metabolism.
Eat More Fish and Seafood.
You may have read about the benefits of taking fish/omega oil capsules to get omega-3 fatty acids? You also find omega-3’s in fish like sardines, herring, tuna, mackerel, trout, and salmon. Studies have stated that if you consume fish like these, you can boost your calorie burn by as much as 400 calories a day!
Eat more green leafy vegetables.
Green leafy vegetables like collard greens, dandelion greens, kale, chard, and spinach are packed full of vitamin C, vitamin A, calcium, and lots of fibre. These vegetables naturally high in antioxidants and they are so very healthy for you, but what also helps you increase your metabolism is the fibre content in these vegetables. Your body is going to burn many more calories because of the work it takes to digest the fibre in these foods.
Eat Tomatoes every Day.
Tomatoes are really great for you because they have lycopene. Lycopene is the antioxidant that has been found to have natural cancer fighting qualities. Tomatoes are also a good source of fibre. The key ingredient for eliminating fat, however, are the acids in tomatoes that help your body get rid of fat from your system.
Eat more fruit and juices.
Whole fresh fruits have actually been said to have “negative calories” and this means that your body will burn more calories digesting the food than it stores from eating the food. To ramp up your metabolism you may want to try adding fresh fruits like blueberries or strawberries or bananas to your cereal or your smoothies every morning.
Eat spicy foods, chilies, and curries.
Have you ever eaten a spicy meal and felt your body break out in a sweat? The capsaicin in many hot peppers and other spices literally fire up your metabolism because of the “fire” it creates inside your body. Some studies have said that there is a 50% increase in metabolism after eating a spicy meal that contains capsaicin. So you may want to keep a bottle of hot sauce on your table and add it to your dishes at meal time
Now you have five ways you can boost your metabolism and burn more calories. Tonight, you just might want to have some spicy Cajun blackened salmon for dinner, a big salad with lots of dark green leafy vegetables and tomatoes. And for dessert a fresh fruit salad.
