here are seven metabolism-boosting foods from Cosmopolitan:
Chicken is packed with protein, which is essential for maintaining muscle mass-and the more muscle mass you have, the more efficient you are at burning calories. Protein takes more time to digest than carbohydrates, so you’ll feel full longer.
Calcium consumed in tandem with an amino acid found in dairy products has been shown to burn fat. It has more protein that the regular kind-so you boost the fat-burning benefits.
Consuming two to four cups of fresh brewed green tea daily can help you burn about an extra 50 calories a day. It’s teeming with catechins, nutrients linked to increased metabolism and a smaller waistline.
It’s a fat-melting morning meal. Eggs are loaded with protein (which will keep you feeling full for longer).
When you drink ice water, your body actually expends energy, warming the water up to your natural temperature.
Capsaicin, the ingredient that gives chili peppers their fiery kick, can also fire up your fat-burning furnace.
These nuts contain the right balance of healthy fat, protein, and fiber, and together they rev your metabolism and keep you feeling satisfied.
