Incinerate Your Fat With These Metabolism Boosting Power Foods

Some people are lucky enough to be able to seem to eat whatever and whenever they want without piling on the pounds. This is probably due to their metabolism.

Metabolism is defined as the amount of energy (calories) your body needs to burn to maintain itself. Your Basic Metabolic Rate is the number of calories expended while at rest and in a neutrally temperate environment. For example, a 5ft 6”, 40 year old woman has a BMR of 1473 calories.

Increasing your metabolism will help you burn more calories and help to incinerate your fat. Here are some of the top ways to boost your metabolism.
Firstly, muscle burns more calories to maintain itself compared to fat.

Therefore the key is to build more muscle to burn more calories. Research has shown that adding one extra pound of muscle to your body enables you to burn an extra 35-50 calories per day. Add 10 pounds of pure muscle and burn 350-500 extra calories per day and lose one pound of fat every 7-10 days.

Certain food types help to rev up your fat burning incinerator and none more so than calcium rich foods. One study showed that middle aged women who had the lowest calcium intake put on one pound of fat each year, while women with the most calcium intake had no weight change.

Michael Zemel, PhD, director of The Nutrition Institute at the University of Tennessee identified why this happens. He found that the more calcium there is in a cell, the more fat that cell burns.

Zemel proved these findings with a study of 32 obese people put on a low-calorie diet and split into three groups: those who consumed a lot of dairy, those who consumed little dairy but took calcium supplements, and those who had a low-calcium, low-dairy diet. After 24 weeks, the group consuming the dairy rich diet lost an extra five pounds and shrank their waist by an extra inch and a quarter.

The calcium works by slightly increasing the body’s core temperature leading to an increase in metabolism and an increase in fat burning.

Here are some other quick tips to boost your metabolism.

Have half a teaspoon of cinnamon per day. Cinnamon is a tasty spice that will rev up your metabolism alarmingly. Add it to your calcium rich yoghurt for a flavourful mid afternoon snack.

Spice up your meals with chilli and spices. Studies show that spicy foods help to increase metabolism by up to 50 percent for up to three hours after eating as it speeds up your heart rate.

Iodine encourages the thyroid gland to burn fat. Fish, natural yoghurt and eggs are rich sources of iodine.

Finally, swap your regular cup of tea for green tea. Not only does green tea contain a number of cancer fighting antioxidants, it also contains a compound that reacts with caffeine to boost fat oxidisation and resting metabolism by 20 percent.   

This is just a taster of some of the powerful ways you can rev up your metabolism. There are ways to rev up your metabolism so much that you can pretty much eat as much of what you like when you likeand not pile on the pounds.
