Are there certain foods that will help increase metabolism?
The answer is YES!
The types of foods that boost metabolism are known as negative calorie foods. This means that you burn more calories from digesting the food than the food is actually worth.
For example, if you eat a food containing 100 calories and you find out that the food will burn 120 calories, you have burned a net of 20 calories just by eating that food. AWESOME!
Negative Calorie Foods
Foods that are capable of producing negative calorie results include:
Warning: Avoid “empty calories” (junk food) or calories from foods with poor vitamin and nutrient content. These types of foods have a reverse effect on our metabolism; they add more to our body fat because they require fewer calories to digest than the amount of calories they contain. End result – slower metabolism.
The best way to jumpstart your Metabolism is Exercise!
