Pile on the proteins. Research
shows that protein boosts your metabolism, causing you to burn an extra
150 to 200 calories a day! When this happens, your body actually works
harder, causing you to burn more calories. Fish and chicken breast meat
are awesome proteins.
Go for spicy. Fiery food like
chilli and peppers can also speed up your metabolism as well. A study
showed that eating one tablespoon of chopped red chillies actually
boosts your body’s production of heat, causing you to experience a
temporary metabolism spike of about 23 percent!
Exercise the right way. If you
are on the treadmill, rev up your workup by alternating between
sprinting and running at an easy pace. Adding this variety makes your
workout more effective, increasing your metabolism. Or incorporate
strength or resistance training at least two or three times a week. This
can help you put on much needed muscles to get toned and to have a
positive impact on your metabolism.
