Give Your Metabolism a Boost With These 4 Meal Combos

August 20, 2015 2 min read

Your metabolism plays an intricate role in your weight. A slow metabolism can hinder your goals, and a fast one can make life a lot easier. But it's not as black and white as having a fast one or a slow one! There are a lot of factors that play a part in ensuring your metabolism is working at a diligent speed, especially what you eat. If you feel like you're working out a ton and eating well, perhaps you need to switch up your eating habits. Try these four meals plans to make the most of your weight loss goals and give your metabolism the boost it needs to aid in the process. 1. Eggs, Salsa and Avocado Fuel up on protein for breakfast to avoid overeating throughout the day by eating eggs. Add salsa to ignite the fat burning hormone norepinephrine. Incorporate avocado for a healthy dose of monounsaturated fats which stimulate the body to use fat as fuel. 2. Chicken, Grapefruit Wedges, Spinach and Kale Protein uses more of your body's energy to digest than carbohydrates, which helps to boost your metabolism. So savor some chicken for lunch atop a kale and spinach salad, which are packed with fiber and antioxidants. Add a side of grapefruit, which is known to aid the release of all the nutrients your body needs from those healthy greens. 3. Beef Tenderloin, Broccoli and Sweet Potato Along with being a good source of protein, beef is a proven metabolic powerhouse. Eat it with dark green veggies and a fiber-filled sweet potato to help aid in muscle recovery post workout. 4. Cottage Cheese, Blueberries and Chia Seeds If you eat dinner early enough, chances are your stomach is starting to grumble a couple hours before you hit the hay. But don't opt for the ice cream or the chips just yet. Try some cottage cheese, which is a low-fat, slow digesting protein. Add some blueberries for a healthy dose of antioxidants, and top it all off with a sprinkle of chia seeds, which are known to reduce the appetite. What metabolism boosting meals do you love?
