Top Metabolism Boosters
Pineapple: Nibble on it to break down the proteins in your main meal and kick start your metabolism.
Cinnamon: Just half a teaspoon of cinnamon a day, sprinkled into your breakfast cereal, will help you shift an amazing one kilo every month.
Cold showers: They not only burn 500 extra calories a day, studies from The New England Journal of Medicine cite that the icy water also activates ‘brown fat’ – the good type of body fat that creates body heat, increases metabolism and burns off naughty white fat.
Green tea: This powerful antioxidant can shift fat and ramp up your metabolism by 20 per cent.
Fatty coconut milk: Believe it or not, it contains good fats that are important for keeping your metabolism ticking. One meal, like a delicious Thai green curry, can actually increase your metabolism by 5 per cent, says research published in the International Journal of Obesity.
Fresh chilies, paprika, chilli or cayenne powder: Spice things up by adding a little to your meals, and getting a met-boost as you eat.
