Eat your way to a higher metabolism with these foods
The weight loss struggle is real and as we get older and our metabolisms slow down, weight loss goes from real to real hard, but you can eat your way to a metabolism boost with these foods.
Drink up on green tea, specifically matcha. This Japanese tea contains the antioxidant EGCG which is known to speed up metabolism. You'll need at least 5 cups to do the trick but matcha packs the punch with 3 times more EGCG.
Grapefruit: it may be sour but its connection to weight loss is sweet. The compound naringin found in this fruit can lower blood sugar which can lead to a trimmer waist.
The foods that will boost your metabolism:
Dairy gets a bad rap for its link to bloating and bad skin, but studies have shown that dairy's calcium and protein can promote weight loss. If you're already taking on a low cal diet, dairy can help speed up the weight loss process, but cheese and yogurts can be high in fat, so stick with reduced fat or nonfat greek yogurt.
Drinking cold water can also give your metabolism a boost. Experts credit the work it takes your body to heat the water to body temperature. ￼
And if you like an extra kick in your curry you're in luck. Experts say spicy food can increase your heart rate, resulting in a metabolism boost. Bonus: capsicum found in chili peppers is a known appetite suppressant.
