Adding these 5 Fat Burning Foods to your diet can help speed up you metabolism and help you carry out your goal before summer time! Each of have their own reasons for burning fat, so why not incorporate them in your meals!
Healthy Foods that Speed up Metabolism #1: Tuna
Tuna is packed with omega-3 fatty acids, which stimulate the production of leptin, a hormone that increases feelings of fullness (helps you stop eating sooner).
I like to sear my tuna and add brown rice + a side of veggies. Checkout my ‘What I eat in a day’ video for a great way to enjoy it! Just replace Salmon with Tuna.
Healthy Foods that Speed up Metabolism #2: Grapefruit
Grapefruit has naringenin, an antioxidant that researchers at the Scripps Clinic in California found helps your body use insulin more efficiently, keeping your blood sugar in check and improving calorie burn. I enjoy Grapefruit in the mornings with Lemon water for extra energy and it’s the perfect starter to my day.
Healthy Foods that Speed up Metabolism #3: Rolled Oats
They help you stay fuller longer, and it’s a healthier option to regular oatmeal. Because It’s a whole grain, your body uses more energy to Digest, so it burns more calories when you eat it. Eat this in the morning to jump start your metabolism and stay full.
Healthy Foods that Speed up Metabolism #4: Green Tea
I’ve been drinking green tea since I can remember. Green tea has epigallocatechin, which stimulates the nervous system—without elevating your heart rate. This is perfect for weight loss and a great option to consider before drinking sweet tea. I drink this before bed or in the mornings; hot with lemon and a little honey.
Healthy Foods that Speed up Metabolism #5: Peppers
Thanks to a chemical called capsaicin, these veggies amp up your calorie burn too. Adding something spicy to your meal can increase your metabolism by 25%.
Consider snacking on peppers or adding it to your egg omelet in the mornings.
