3 Ways To Boost Your Metabolism

Fit in fiber: High-fiber foods help keep your digestive tract healthy. One type of fiber, called soluble fiber may help lower blood glucose and cholesterol levels. Fiber may also help boost metabolism because the body tries to digest it, which burns calories in the process. High fiber foods include whole grain breads and cereals, fruits and vegetables, and beans.
Eat breakfast: Your body stays in sleep mode all night, so give it a jump-start in the morning with a great breakfast. Choose a bowl of high fiber cereal, some fruit and healthy protein food, such as egg, low fat cottage cheese or some peanut butter. People who eat breakfast are more likely to lose weight then people who don’t.
Include protein: Make sure each of you meals contains protein. It takes more energy for you body to digest protein than carbs. Protein helps maintain our muscle mass. Choose healthy proteins such as skinless chicken or turkey, lean beef, eggs, fish, lower fat cheese and tofu.
