  1. Spinach
    The iron present in spinach is thought to help keep your red blood cells healthy. Therefore spinach helps your red blood cells get the necessary oxygen to your muscles and in turn this helps to ensure your metabolism does not drop or decrease.
    Alternative: eat other foods rich in iron like kale, liver and chickpeas.

2.   Jalapeno

  • Jalapenos are great for your metabolic rate because they contain a beneficial chemical called capsaicin, which is thought to boost your metabolism and help you to feel fuller for longer. Interestingly, another perk to eating hot foods containing capsaicin is that they trigger the release of endorphins and can leave people with a feeling of euphoria.
    Alternative: if you’re not a fan of jalapenos, you could choose other hot peppers that contain capsaicin, such as cayenne pepper or chili flakes. less

  • 3  Eggs
    One of the greatest nutritional benefits we gain from eating eggs is their protein. Protein does all sorts of good things for our body, one of which is helping to support the growth of our muscles. Muscle mass is essential for those looking to boost their metabolism because the more muscle mass you have the more calories you use up.
    Alternative: lean meats like chicken and turkey, or fish like tuna, sardines and salmo

  • 4. Green Tea
    Green tea contains caffeine and catechins that are thought to boost our metabolism for several hours after drinking. Studies have found that one cup of green tea may not be enough to boost your metabolism though and it is thought that drinking between two to four cups of green tea may help you to get the boost you require.
    Alternative: other tea that contains catechins and caffeine is oolong tea, which is a partially fermented tea (green tea is unfermented) that has a sweet taste.

  • 5. Sweet potatoes
    It is thought that the antioxidant glutathione that is found in sweet potatoes is the component that helps our nutrient metabolism. Plus the vitamin B nutrient within sweet potatoes is also thought to help burn fat within the body.
    Alternative: other orange and vibrant fruit and vegetables like carrots, pumpkin, avocado or watermelon can all increase your glutathione levels and aid nutrient metabolism.
