How to Speed Up Your Metabolism

23 August 2013

The sole reason behind weight loss is a good metabolism. But, ironically people consider ‘metabolism improvement’ as the last option, when they think about losing that extra flab. From gymming and yoga to diet plans, they do it all. But, they do not pay heed towards improving their digestion. A good bowel movement can keep your body healthy as well as toned. We bring to you a few foods that can help you in speeding up your metabolism, and thus lead to a slimmer body frame.

If you have an egg for breakfast then you tend to eat lesser amount of food the entire day. It is so because it has protein in it, which is quite filling. This automatically cuts down your calorie intake. Even a study has revealed that people on a low-calorie diet, who ate an egg for breakfast each morning lost  twice as much weight as those who had a breakfast with the same number of calories, sans the eggs.


We need not say much about this wonder product, which is actually good for your overall health. They are good for weight loss, improve blood sugar levels, and even healthy for your heart. Oats digest slowly, making you feel full for a longer time. Thus, it is a perfect ingredient for people on a weight loss spree.


Lentils are loaded with protein and soluble fibre, which help to stabilise blood sugar levels. Variations in the level of insulin (or blood sugar) cause your body to create excess fat, especially in the abdominal area. So, having lentils help you to achieve that slim and toned waistline.


Not only are they loaded with flavonoids and anti-ageing antioxidants, pomegranates are also low in calories and high in fibre. Hence, they satisfy your sweet tooth and help to improve your digestion as well. (Also read on 7 Beauty Benefits of Pomegranates.)


Capsaicin, a compound found in chillies has a thermogenic effect. Your body burns extra calories for up to 20 minutes after you eat the chillies. Also, food that is spicy and full of chillies forces you to eat slowly, thus making you more aware of how much you are consuming.

So, whenever you think of losing weight, make sure you pay your first attention towards speeding up your metabolism, and not crash dieting.
