Which foods increase metabolism?

Your body converts food into fuel. The faster your metabolism is, the faster your body can turn nutrients from food into energy. Having a slow metabolism means your body tends to store nutrients as fat instead of burning them up. A high metabolism diet aims to make your metabolism faster, so you burn fat instead of storing it.

For most people, processed foods, breads, pastas and grains are foods that block a properly functioning metabolism!

Switching to a whole-food diet is the first step to boost your metabolism. Certain foods that aid in the process are:

  • Almonds
  • Beans
  • Berries
  • Celery
  • Chia seeds
  • Apple cider vinegar
  • Cinnamon
  • Coconut oil
  • Fish
  • Grape fruit
  • Green tea
  • Lean Turkey
  • Lean meat
  • Egg whites
  • Lentils
  • Jalepanos
  • Spinach
  • Watermelon
