 The Holiday season can certainly take a toll on the body. In the last days of 2017, you may be considering a detox to start your new year off right.

Green Tea

If you didn't already know that green tea is on the list of naturally metabolism foods, you do now! However, it's not technically a food, its a drink but you get the point. This brew or anything with green tea extract for that matter is proven time and time again to naturally accelerate the metabolism. By incorporating green tea into your diet routine you are not only supporting your weight loss efforts but also your overall health. Studies show that green tea helps protect the body from cancer-causing free-radicals.

Spices

They serve a greater purpose than just being flavorful! Black pepper, cayenne pepper, chili powder, and even ground ginger have one very important thing in common—they accelerate your metabolism. According to the National Institutes of Health, says the seedier and more pungent the spice, the greater source of energy. The study also showered that out that participants who consumed meals seasoned with ground black pepper, powdered ginger, powdered onion, red pepper, and mustard seeds burned more than 1,000 additional calories per day!

Nuts, Seeds and Fish

Nuts, seeds and fish are all quality sources of not only protein but Omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3 fatty acids are a sure fire way to boost your energy levels and speed your metabolism. Omega-3’s reduce the level of the hormone, leptin, which allows the metabolism to work at a faster rate.

Water

We know, water is also not a food. However, the more water you drink during the day and between meals, the more fat your body can burn. Drinking at least 17-ounces of water per day can increase your metabolic rate by 30-percent for both males and females.
