3 ways to BOOST YOUR METABOLISM



Do not skip meals

You must eat every 3 to 4 hours. Eating regularly helps boost your metabolic rate as it has to work to digest, absorb and then use the nutrients from the food. Read: it burns fat. Or, the fancy term for this is "the thermic effect". By eating the highest quality foods, avoiding processed items, including a combination of high-fibre carbohydrates, lean protein and healthy fats, is a fast way to burn fat.

Drink green tea

High in antioxidants, green tea also contains catechins, a natural component that speeds up the metabolism. Research published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition has shown drinking three cups of green tea per day can help reduce body fat. Added bonus? Catechins have been shown to have anti-inflammatory effects, anti-cancer properties, and may help control cholesterol levels.

Improve your thyroid function

To increase your metabolism, the thyroid needs to function at it best. Your thyroid is effectively, what gets your metabolic rate going through the roof or brings it to a complete halt. Support your thyroid function by including more seafood, nuts and seeds in your diet. These foods are high in selenium, vitamin E, iodine, zinc and copper which are essential nutrients for the thyroid. - body and soul
