The best foods to boost your metabolism
24th April 2018
We all have differing levels of metabolism and this is down to the rate at which our bodies burn calories. As well as exercising and getting the right amount of sleep, we can give our bodies a helping hand by including lots of the right foods in our diet. Here are our top food picks to boost your metabolism.
Makes friends with Yerba mate
A type of tea, Yerba mate is well known to provide a wide range of health benefits. We add it to our Daytox blend as it’s been found to slow down digestion, keeping you fuller for longer in addition to increasing your energy levels.
Spice it up
Spicy ingredients like chilli peppers, wasabi and cayenne pepper are thermogenic foods which heat up the insides of our bodies, helping the body to burn fat. Curry for dinner, anyone?!
Powered by avocado
Apart from the fact that it’s an excellent food to start the day with, avocado contains plenty of healthy fats that get your metabolism going while maintaining stable blood sugar levels. Add this to the fact that you’ll be less likely to snack, and you can see why avocados can help you maintain a healthy weight.
Eat your kimchi
You’ll find that probiotic-rich foods like the fermented favourite kimchi is beneficial for your gut health and can help reduce bloating. As it makes it easier for your body to break down nutrients properly, it can in turn increase the efficiency of your metabolism.
Get with the beet
If Olympians drink beetroot juice before and after exercise, it’s got to be good for us, right?! A study has shown that after taking it athletes’ muscles worked more efficiently so it’s an ideal addition to your diet especially if you’re sporty.
