Foods That Will Boost Your Metabolism

Your metabolism is how your body stays alive via chemical processes on the cellular level. How fast these chemical reactions take place while your body is in a state of rest is called your Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR). Your BMR affects how much food you need and how your body acquires energy from that food. If you consume more calories than you need, your body will store them as fat.

 

There are several factors that influence metabolic rate, including genetics, exercise, gender, body fat to muscle ratio, sleep habits and age. Most people’s metabolic rate starts to steadily slow down from the age of 25. This has a lot to do with the fact that our physical activity levels tend to decrease as we get older. Exercise and proper nutrition are key to maintaining a strong, healthy BMR.

 

Your body needs a variety of nutrients in order to produce energy for protein synthesis. To a certain extent, the kinds of foods you eat can help boost your metabolic rate. Foods that are known to increase your metabolism include healthy protein sources, high fibre foods like vegetables, and foodstuffs containing omega-3 fatty acids.

 

 

Here is a list of 10 metabolism-boosting foods:

 

Almonds: high in protein and fibre, nutrient dense


Asparagus: high in fibre, protein, antioxidants and B vitamins

 

Avocados: contain complete proteins, omega-3 fatty acids

 

Blueberries: high in antioxidants for healthy cellular function

 

 

Coffee and Tea: caffeine stimulates the central nervous system, thereby boosting metabolism

 

Fish: high in protein and omega-3 fatty acids, low in fat

 

Greek Yogurt: high in protein, low in fat, contains friendly bacteria

 

Oats: high in fibre, protein and nutrients

 

Olive Oil: high in good fats and strong antioxidants

 

Spinach: nutrient rich, high in antioxidants
