In order to lose weight, you have to pay attention to your diet. There are certain types of food which will boost your metabolism.
Green tea – This tea is rich in antioxidants and has a lot of benefits to health, including boosting your metabolism, says nutritionist Jackie Nugent. It contains substances called catechins and is proven to reduce body fat, and caffeine in green tea is an additional stimulant that increases the level of energy that the body spends.
Eggs – Whether you eat scrambled eggs, poached or hard-boiled eggs, they are definitely the ultimate morning meal. Eggs are considered foods that supply our body with very high quality protein, and eating eggs increases calorie burning. One study showed that egg-based breakfast increases fat loss by 65 percent in overweight people who follow the reduced diet plan. Breakfast is rich in protein, such as eggs, increases satiety and metabolism by 10 percent, says nutritionist Nugent.
Hot peppers – Chili pepper gives much more than great taste. It also put your metabolism in top speed. Studies have shown that capsaicin, a natural substance found in chili peppers gives them a hot taste, helps with weight loss because of the potential to produce heat, burns calories and melts fat, says Nugent. Hot peppers also increase the feeling of fullness and therefore you eat less.
Coconut and palm oil – Consuming pressed coconut oil and palm kernel oil is proven to accelerate energy expenditure and metabolic processes, says clinical nutritionist Laura Lagano. One study has shown that women who consume two tablespoons of coconut oil a day have less body fat around the waist and higher levels of good cholesterol. The key is in the capping portion, because both types of oil are very calorific and contain 40 to 117 calories per bucket.
Nonfat dairy – Studies have shown that a diet rich in calcium from dairy products accelerate weight loss. Why? Insufficient calcium starts release of calcitriol, a hormone that forces the body to store more fat. Dairy products with low fat promote weight loss, but at the same time allow the body to absorb calcium it needs.
Quinoa – To burn fat, you need to insert in your diet foods rich in fiber, which takes longer to digest and thus help accelerate metabolism. The fibers also increase the feeling of satiety. Quinoa is super grain that provides 12 grams of fiber per serving, almost two times more than other grains.
Bananas – This fruit has a bad reputation when it comes to losing weight, but without justifiable reasons. Firstly, one large banana provides almost 500 milligrams of potassium, which helps the body to regulate the minerals and liquids and can accelerate metabolism, says Nugent. Bananas also lowers blood sugar levels, and some studies have shown that if you just smell a banana, it can suppress your appetite.
