Six Foods to Boost Your Metabolism

Eat Berries

Metabolism is defined as the process by which the body converts what you eat and drink into energy. As such, it's a top factor in weight loss. To that end, Metabolic Research Center offers these six metabolism-boosting foods.

  1. High-Fiber Cereal: Start your day with a fiber boost that can help keep you feeling satisfied for hours.
  2. Berries: Raspberries, strawberries, blackberries and blue berries all are high in fiber. Not only does this make them filling, it also serves to absorb excess fat and calories.
  3. Citrus fruits: Boosting your vitamin C intake to 500 milligrams can increase fat-burning during exercise by nearly 40 percent. Lemons, limes, grapefruit and oranges are top  sources.
  4. Spicy peppers: Spicy peppers including jalapenos, habaneros and chili peppers contain the heat-producing compound capsaicin, which can boost both heart rate and metabolism. In fact, a particularly spicy meal can speed up metabolism by some 25 percent for nearly three hours.
  5. Lean protein: Studies show that people who eat lots of lean protein burn twice as many calories after a meal as those who don't. Plus, protein helps to repair, preserve and build healthy muscle tissue.
  6. Fatty fish: Omega-3 fatty acids promote weight loss by raising levels of fat-burning enzymes and lowering levels of fat-storage enzymes. Clinical studies have shown that this can boost metabolism by up to 400 calories per day. Salmon, tuna, mackerel, sardines and trout are favorites.
