Metabolism is the fuel-burning furnace in your cells that determines whether you’ll be nicely muscled or marshmallowy. Here’s a list of food options that aid in the calorie-burning process.
Drink tap or mineral water, not purified water. In a Swiss study, purified water didn’t boost men’s metabolic activity, but water that contained minerals did.
Whey protein is better than casein protein. A Swiss study found that it has a larger thermic effect than casein protein, meaning it requires more calories to digest.
Use olive oil, not flaxseed oil. Both are sources of omega-3, but olive oil triggers a larger post-meal burn than flaxseed oil, according to a Canadian study.
Oolong tea trumps green tea. Both can elevate your energy expenditure, but oolong tea’s jolt is more than twice that of green tea, a study from Japan found.
5) Cheese And Bread
Eat cheddar on wholegrain bread, not processed American cheese on white. Whole foods can boost your post-meal burn by 87 per cent, say researchers in the US.
