Aug 16 – How to boost your metabolism naturally!

Here are some of my top tricks in how to boost your metabolism naturally

CINNAMON

When cinnamon is added into your food be it on your porridge, as a marinade a topping on your yogurt or even on your salad you are helping to boost your metabolism as cinnamon helps the blood sugar be transported into the cells around your body for energy this resulting in less fat being stored. You will only need to add around ¼ – 1 teaspoon of cinnamon to your food every day to see the benefits.

GREEN TEA

Caffeine alone will boost your metabolism increasing your heart rate which leads to greater calorie burn. However, green tea also contains catechins which are a substance that has been suggested to help burn belly fat. You should aim to try and drink around 8-ounce cups a day to see the greatest benefit.

YOUGART

Dairy has recently been given a bad name for containing a lot of calories and bad fat, however this not the truth and in fact dairy can be very good for us as it contain a lot of friendly bacteria and good fats. These together have been suggested to be able to try and reduce the amount of fat absorbed around the fat.

COFFEE

As mentioned above caffeine can help kick start your metabolism as it jump-starts the lipolysis which assists in the breakdown of fats. You should aim for 1-2 cups of coffee per day.

CHILI PEPPERS

Chili’s are often found in curry’s, Indian food, Chinese food and other wonderful dishes from around the World. These spicy little peppers contain a compound called capsaicin which provides the fiery flavour and helps to boost your metabolism. Capsaicin not only boosts your metabolism but also increases your body temperature which helps with additional calorie burn.

CHICKEN AND FISH

After consuming any food your body has to digest it which in turn burns calories. Lean proteins like chicken and fish take more digesting so more calories are burned opposed to when foods like carbs and fats are consumed.  This suggesting that consuming proteins opposed to any other foods will burn more calories and boost your metabolism.
