We know it’s a maze out there, constantly flooded with information around certain foods we should eat, those we shouldn’t - ‘good carbs’, ‘bad carbs,’ ‘good fats’, ‘bad fats’, the list goes on and on.
Ultimately a combination of a balanced diet and moving your body regularly is the recipe for success, but we also know that we can always do with a little boost in the right direction.
Our Dawn Booster has been created to aid in boosting your metabolism, naturally – but what foods can we eat that also help boost our metabolism? Look no further, we have pulled a list of these natural metabolism booster’s, so you have them all in one place:
1. Protein Rich Foods
The Thermic Effects of Food (TEF), is the consequence of eating food to boost your metabolism and protein causes the largest rise of TEF. It can increase your metabolic rate by 15-30% as opposed to 5-10% for carbs and 0-3% for fats.
Protein rich foods include lean meats, poultry, fish, seafood, eggs and dairy products – include these in your meals, and you will also be fuller for longer.2
2. Iron, Zinc, Selenium Rich Foods
Foods rich in Iron, Zinc and Selenium have different, but equally great qualities, however what they do have in common is that they all promote the proper function of your thyroid – which regulates your metabolism.
Pile up your lean meats, seafood, legumes, nuts and seeds to keep your thyroid healthy and functioning, regulating your metabolism.
3. Chilli Peppers
Capsaicin, which is commonly found in Chilli Peppers, has been said to help to boost metabolism by Thermogenesis – the body’s production of heat. In order to raise your core temperature, your body must burn calories. This is the process your body goes through during exercise – I know what I’d choose!
Simply, Coffee contains caffeine, one of the few substances known to help mobilise fats from your fat tissues and increase metabolism.
5. Green Tea
We have some mixed reviews on this one, but on a personal level, we love it. Tea is packed full of antioxidants, giving you a natural energy boost and boosting your metabolism.
Whichever your preference, there are plenty of ways to naturally boost your metabolism, paired with a healthy, colourful diet and exercise you love – you’ll be feeling great in no time.
But while we are here, who doesn’t love a helping hand? We have specifically formulated our Dawn Metabolism Booster with you in mind, ensuring it is packed full of natural, plant-based, health boosting ingredients. Dawn has a lovely blend of flavour and goodness, but it’s the matcha powder and yerba mate that you can thank for those metabolism boosting benefits.
