Metabolism Boosting Foods

Here is a list of some metabolism boosting foods. Try adding these varieties to your diet and receive all their health benefits

Did you know drinking a glass of tomato juice every day can help reduce the risk of heart attack and strokes and people with type ll diabetes? They also help reduce the risk of Cancer ( prostate, bladder, breast, lung and stomach), sun related skin damage and macular degeneration and cataracts

tomatoes are a great source of:

Lycopene, Vitamin C, Alpha and Beta Carotene, Lutein, Potassium, B Vitamins, Chromium, Biotin, Fiber

Try roasting tomatoes in the oven at 300 degrees with some garlic and thyme- use these on top of salads. Use salsa as a dressing or a marinade on chicken. Use tomato paste as a thickener in soups

Iced Green Tea or Coffee

Experts seem to be in agreement that the caffeine in coffee and green tea is an effective way to boost your metabolism but you probably need two cups a day to have any effect. Why drink them iced? Iced drinks force your body to work to warm up, which burns more energy. And as for the green tea, some might also recommend adding in lemon juice to mix, as it is also thought to help your metabolism function better. 

Ice Water

Water is arguably the most cost-effective and accessible beverage you can drink to help boost your metabolism. Studies have shown that   dehydration, even in small degrees, can contribute to the slowing of your   metabolism, so make sure you’re not skimping on water throughout the day. Better yet, as with the coffee and green tea, drink your water icy cold to help force your body to burn more energy.

Grapefruit Juice

Studies have shown grapefruit juice (and grapefruits in general, really) to be effective in boosting one’s metabolism and contributing to weight loss. This is thought to be thanks to the fruit’s apparent ability to reduce high insulin levels, helping one’s body to better metabolize fat. A word of warning, however, to those on medication: the chemical components in the fruit have been found to inhibit the metabolism of certain drugs. 

Did you know? Fresh ginger has an ingredient which has metabolism-boosting compounds known as- capsaicin, piperine, and gingerols.
