There are so many little tips an tricks to getting you the body you desire! One of them is eating proper foods, and knowing what foods can help make an impact on how lean you are. Here are some foods that naturally speed up your metabolism due to more work your body has to put in.

First of all, eating breakfast can make a huge difference in metabolism. Your metabolism is like a fire: If you don’t add wood, your metabolism will die down. If you don’t eat regularly, your body doesn’t have fuel and your metabolism will slow down. Your best bet for breakfast will have carbs, protein, and a fruit or vegetable–like a bowl of oatmeal with eggs, and berries. After that, make sure to continue to eat every two to three hours.

Green Tea : Studies have shown that people who drink about 24 ounces per day of green tea burn 70 to 100 more calories per day due to the antioxidants called catechins. Brew your own green tea because the bottled green tea you find in stores may be diluted with water or have a lot of sugar.

Coffee : Research shows that the caffeine in one cup of coffee can temporarily increase metabolism by 15 percent.

Whole grains :
High-fiber foods take your body longer to digest, which helps speed up metabolism due to the thermic effect of food. Whole grains like brown rice, oats, quinoa, and barley are very high in fiber.

Vegetables : Broccoli, cauliflower, and Brussels sprouts are especially high in fiber. Your body works hard to digest all vegetables, which ups your metabolic rate. But don’t limit yourself to just these because all vegetables have fiber and your body needs a variety of nutrients.

Raspberries : Any fruits with edible seeds or skin like raspberries, blackberries, and pears are especially high in fiber. Don’t worry about the sugar in fruit because it’s a natural source of sugar.

Cold Water : Drinking five to eight glasses per day of very cold water helps speed up the metabolism because your body has to use energy to warm the water back up to your normal body temperature, 98 degrees.
