How to Speed up your Metabolism to Burn Fat and Calories [HOW TO]

Drinking and eating certain foods and beverages can speed up your metabolism so you can confidently step on that bathroom scale without being surprised. Use the following tips then to keep on top of your diet and exercise plan so you can maintain a healthy weight.

Include Spice in your Diet

If you want to stay slim and trim, then include entrees in your diet that are flavored with spice. That means you’ll want to keep your kitchen cupboard stocked with spicy ingredients, such as chili, Tabasco sauce, and cayenne peppers. The capsaicin in chili peppers actually revs up the adrenaline in your system which in turn speeds up your metabolism.

Make Green Tea your Beverage of Choice

Make green tea your beverage of choice and you will benefit by having a slimmer body. The catechins in green tea are antioxidants that also increase your metabolic rate. In fact, green tea has been proven to burn an extra 70 calories per day, so it’s a good drink to add to your daily menu.

Choose Foods made of Protein

It also helps to include more protein in your diet. For example, you might have eggs for breakfast, chicken salad for lunch, or yoghurt for a snack. Protein can also be found in foods, other than animal products, such as legumes, beans and whole grains.

Combine Aerobic Exercise with an Interval Workout

Incorporate aerobic exercise, such as dancing or jumping rope, with such exercises as lunges, pushups, and squats. This type of routine is much more effective in giving your metabolism a boost than merely walking on a treadmill or pedaling a stationary bike in order to get fit.

When you Choose to Eat or Exercise Affects your Metabolism Too

Also, when you choose to eat or exercise can affect metabolism too. Breakfast is always a good meal to eat for elevating your metabolism, followed by, say, a half hour of walking – both the meal and activity will aid you in burning more calories throughout the day.

Try Not to Skip Meals

When you skip meals, your body goes into defense mode, thinking that it is not going to receive any more sustenance. As a result, the metabolism starts to slow in order to conserve energy, stockpiling your remaining reserves.

Other Foods that Keep you Slim

Therefore, include nutritious foods in your diet whose vitamins and chemical properties boost one’s metabolism. For example, grapefruit is such a food as is oatmeal. Water, too, is helpful if you want to efficiently burn calories as it detoxes your system, flushing out the toxins that cause the metabolism to function at an unhurried pace.
