You might want to look into adding some simple foods that will help you do this.

Here are four simple ideas that you can start with…

Green Tea

If you always opt for coffee over tea, you could be missing out on a major metabolism boost.

In a recent 12-week study, participants who drank 4-5 cups of green tea daily, then did a 25-minute workout, lost an average of two more pounds and more belly fat than the non tea-drinking exercisers.

What’s its magic? The brew contains catechins, a type of antioxidant that triggers the release of fat from fat cells and helps speed the liver’s capacity for turning fat into energy.

Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Our bodies need dietary fat—particularly healthy oils—in order to lose weight and function properly.

The right kinds of fats and oils help quash hunger, maximize your metabolism, and speed nutrients through your body.

Healthy monounsaturated fats like olive oil can actually help the body to burn calories.

Extra virgin olive oil may also increase blood levels of serotonin, a hormone associated with satiety.

Plus, olive oil is also loaded with polyphenols, antioxidants that help battle many diseases such as cancer, osteoporosis and brain deterioration.

Whole Eggs

Although it’s true that egg whites are low in calories, are fat free and contain most of the protein found in an egg…

Eating the entire egg is beneficial to your metabolism.

The yolk contains many metabolism-stoking nutrients, including fat-soluble vitamins, essential fatty acids and — most significantly — choline, a powerful compound that attacks the gene mechanism that triggers your body to store fat around your liver.

Worried about cholesterol?

New studies have found that moderate consumption of two whole eggs per day has no negative effect of a person’s lipid (fat) profile…

And may actually improve it.

 

Water

Weight loss doesn’t get easier than this…

Simply drinking more water may increase the rate at which healthy people burn calories, according to a study in The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism.

After drinking approximately 17 ounces of water (about 2 tall glasses), participants’ metabolic rates increased by 30 percent.

The researchers estimate that increasing water intake by 1.5 liters a day (about 6 cups) would burn an extra 17,400 calories over the course of the year

A weight loss of approximately five pounds… By simply drinking water.

Most people walk around every day dehydrated… And don’t even know it.

Try drinking a little more water everyday…

And start losing some weight over time as you do so.
