How to lose 10 pounds fast by boosting your metabolism

Saturday, January 17th, 2009

Do you wonder why some people easily lose 10 pounds and some don’t? It’s because some people don’t maximize their body’s metabolism by eating the right food. Yes, the right diet can boost your metabolism and easily aid your weight loss.

So what are the metabolism allies that are right for your goals?

Green Tea. It is not only full of antioxidants but also can keep you alert and active. If you’re active and don’t feel sluggish you tend to work out more or do more activities. So the logic is, the more active you are, the more calories you burn. If you’re not a tea person, go for coffee instead. It packs the same benefits and has some anti-aging properties too.

Eggs. Yes, the yolk included, this weight loss ally can keep you feeling full for a longer period of time. Although you need to eat small meals every 3-4 hours, all you need after a full breakfast with eggs is a light snack and you’re ready to get busy again.

Water. Eight or more glasses a day or more is what your body needs. You need water to aid digestion. It also keeps you hydrated after an hour of working out.  The more water you drink, the less sugary drinks you have room for.  And the same for foods.  You cannot eat foods and add on the calories when you are full of drinking water.  Add some lemon or lime juice to give it some flavor.

Fish or fish-oil supplements, particularly salmon, sardines and tuna. Its omega-3 content keeps the pounds at bay because it keeps your leptin down. Leptin aids your metabolism. The lower its level, the faster your metabolism becomes. Eat fish to burn more calories. The good news is, if you are not fond of eating fish, fish oil supplements can work just as well.
