Struggling to lose weight? Check out the foods you eat. Research has shown that specific types of food rev up your metabolism, helping you burn more calories. Green tea, chili peppers, even foods rich in omega-3s such as salmon or walnuts, increase your body’s ability to burn fat.
Studies also show that one of the best ways to increase your metabolism is to eat breakfast. By not skipping your first meal of the day, you can increase your resting metabolism by as much as 10 percent! Just eat healthy and don’t load up on buttery pancakes. Try fat-free yogurt, healthy cereals and fruit, even peanut butter on bananas or toast.
And don’t forget to exercise — that boosts your metabolism, too!
