<ul><li><p> Foods That Speed Up Your Metabolism </p><p>Discover how you can boost your metabolism by adding certain </p><p>foods to your diet. </p><p>Metabolism is simply the process in which the body converts food into energy by burning calories. If you lead an active lifestyle and exercise frequently you will burn more calories than if you sit at a desk all day in an office. Aging also has an effect on the body's metabolism. As we get older our metabolism slows down and any extra pounds are often stored in the stomach area resulting in unsightly rolls of belly fat. Eating large meals with long gaps between them is the worst thing you can do. It may seem a good idea to skip breakfast if you are trying to lose a few pounds, however this sends signals to the brain that the body is in imminent danger of famine and as a result starts to store fat cells. If you want to lose weight successfully you need to eat 6 small meals a day. This may seem a bad idea if you are trying to lose weight, however by eating frequent small meals at intervals of no more than 3 hours apart you will help your metabolism to work effectively. </p><p>There are certain types of food that may actually boost your metabolism and can easily be added to your </p><p>meals.....Discover proven secrets to increase your metabolism and burn that stubborn belly fat fast. </p><p>Spices such as ginger and cayenne pepper generate heat in the body which burn calories in order to cool it down again. Ginger can be added to a variety of dishes including soups and stews. Use fresh ginger and grate or chop finely. Cayenne pepper may also help to reduce cholesterol. Chilli is traditionally used in curries and Mexican dishes. If you like hot dishes chop up a red chilli pepper and add to pasta or casseroles. Chilli raises the heart rate and can increase metabolism but up to 50%. If you like your chilli dishes a bit milder use a green chilli and remove the seeds. </p><p>Grapefruit can reduce the amount of insulin absorbed by the body for up to 2 hours after eating a meal. Try drinking a glass of fresh grapefruit juice first thing in the morning before breakfast, or eat half a grapefruit to kick start your metabolism. Grapefruit contains less calories than is needed to digest it. Bananas may increase the metabolism slightly and also contain potassium which can help lower blood pressure and reduce the risk of a stroke. Try a sliced banana on a bowl of oatmeal for breakfast to really give your metabolism a boost. </p></li><li><p> Oatmeal is high in soluble fibre and is a cholesterol fighting food. You will feel satisfied after eating it and oatmeal gives a slow release of glucose into the bloodstream. It's also packed full of healthy antioxidants. Sprinkle oatmeal on to breakfast cereal, or use as a topping for fruit and yogurt. </p><p>Green tea is a very healthy drink. It's high in cancer fighting antioxidants and contains polyphenols that increase the rate at which fat is burned. Green tea is beneficial in weight loss and is often found in many of the weight loss supplements such as avatrim. A cup of green tea several times a day can really give your metabolism a boost. If you don't like tea you can take it in supplement form. </p><p>Water is essential to keep your body hydrated and many people fail to drink enough of it. Water also boosts metabolism and helps to keep you feeling full. Often hunger pangs can be satisfied by drinking a glass of water. Drink at least 2 litres of water a day to boost metabolism and flush out toxins. If you find it hard to drink plain water try sparkling with a slice of lemon.
