Looking to Rev Up Your Menu Plan?

Someone's Meal Plan Listing Breakfast Items

After years of procrastination, you’re finally ready to begin eating healthier in order to lose weight. Unfortunately, you don’t know where to start. If you can relate to this scenario, consider building your new menu plan around metabolism boosting foods.

All of the life-sustaining, physical and chemical processes performed inside your body each day require energy. Your metabolism manufactures this energy necessary to your health and wellbeing. Increasing your metabolism will help you lose weight faster. The following, five foods all contain metabolism enhancing properties.


Consuming more protein is the easiest way to boost your metabolism. So, to start your day off right, think about eating a couple of eggs. Hard-boiled eggs are a healthy, portable option. 


Coffee contains metabolism boosting caffeine. When drinking this warm, comforting beverage, leave off the sugar, cream, and milk to minimize calories.

Dark Chocolate 

Besides caffeine, dark chocolate is packed with catechins. These substances are believed to be able to increase your resting metabolism rate. Because luscious, dark chocolate is calorie and fat dense, so limit your consumption of this treat to one ounce per day.


Cinnamon contains trace amounts of the chemical capsaicin. Consuming foods with capsaicin is thought to stimulate calorie burn. To incorporate more cinnamon into your diet, add it to:


  • Oatmeal
  • Plain, Greek yogurt
  • Baked sweet potatoes
  • Whole grain cereals
  • Baked apples


Quinoa is a great source of metabolism boosting protein. This healthy grain is also packed with health benefiting iron, manganese, and magnesium. To add more quinoa to your diet, use it instead of plain rice in your favorite recipes. 

If you’ve struggled to lose weight for years, you might feel like giving up. Fortunately, by eating sensible foods that speed up your metabolism, you can likely start shedding those extra pounds you’ve been carrying around for far too long. If you need help creating a smart, metabolism boosting diet plan, consider scheduling a free consultation at a Metabolic Research Center near you.

MRC of Vancouver started me going in my attempt to loose 30 years of weight gain!! I have been using their program for about 18 months and have actually lost 30 pounds. I have changed the way I eat. I've learned what foods are best for ME. By analyzing my DNA and hormones, they helped me learn to eat what was right for me. I have "tweeked" my purchases and preparation of food to make eating healthy and still fun for me. I eat lots of veggies and salads and include a healthy diet of protein. These are very satisfying. Do I "cheat" now and then? Yes, but I don't like how I feel after eating sugar and lots of carbs so I return to my good foods quickly and continue to see my weight drop. I walk my little dog four times a day and have a part-time job that allows me a lot of movement. I feel so healthy and wonderful. It's easy to continue to eat and live a more healthy lifestyle! When I confessed about eating the wrong "foods", the gals simply encouraged me and gave me fresh ideas to satisfy my taste buds. I always felt I could be honest during my consultations with no fear of being lectured! I plan to continue until I reach my desired weight. I expect to reach my goal by 2017. After I reach my weight goal, I plan to remain in good health with my new found healthy way of eating the calories I need to maintain my proper weight. My Dr. is very pleased at my progress. She wondered how I have lost 30 pounds.
