Here are some ways to stoke your metabolism up if you are still having problems with losing weight. these are all from the latest research on weight loss.
1. Studies have found that actually water does have an effect on your metabolism,a study which was correlated in Germany showed that by drinking water the participants metabolisms rose by thirty percent which is quite good.
Water also will suppress your appetite we often mistake from thirst and therefore eat more,try this tip have some water about twenty minutes before your main meal you will probably find that you will eat less.
2. Drink green tea, it has been found from studies that, it has metabolism boosting properties, also green tea is very high in antioxidants and overall it doesn’t taste that bad, it probably sounds for worse than it actually is that there is no reason why you shouldn’t try it.
3.Have some soup,various studies have been done regarding soup, as well as speeding up your metabolism, it also suppresses your appetite and with it being a liquid type of food it will also feel you up.
4.Eat some grapefruit, studies were done regarding this fruit at a clinic and it was found that the people who ate some grapefruit with their meal lost three point six pounds, within three months, another good thing about grapefruit is it keeps your insulin levels in check which if you have high levels of insulin which can cause you to gain weight, insulin is a fat storage hormone.
5.Eat even more fruit, a few days back now I wrote a post about Apples and how they can help you lose weight, if you eat one Apple before each meal about half an hour roughly this will suppress your appetite and because of the pectin in the Apple, you will eat less food. You could also eat pears as well in conjunction with the apples.
6.Vegetables, get into the habit of eating broccoli lots of studies have shown that this vegetable will help you lose weight in the long run, and it does taste quite nice, not only that broccoli is packed with phytochemicals,which helps prevent disease.
7. Add some yoghurt to your shopping list has been found, that people who eat dairy foods, with calcium in do in fact lose weight. Just make sure it’s a low-fat variety of what you are eating.
8. Porridge, one of my favourite breakfasts, oatmeal as its otherwise known has lots of soluble fiber and high in carbohydrates which will keep you feeling full for longer.
9.Turkey or chicken tends to be packed full of protein,another good metabolism booster studies have shown this time after time.
10.Spicy food hot foods such as pepper also have fat burning properties as well, things like chillies etc, these foods stimulate your stress hormones which in turn speed up your metabolism.
