Although weight loss is predominantly based on your activity level and your calorie intake, increasing the amount of consuming certain foods can make your metabolism burn at a faster rate.
Research shows that there are some proven strategies to increase your metabolic rate and burn fat for longer periods throughout the day.
After a meal, blood sugar increases and triggers an increase in insulin. This sends a signal for sugar to be taken up into muscle and fat cells until there is a drop in blood sugar.
Many people have created a dysfunction in this system from over-consumption of carbohydrates (as simple sugars) and saturated fats, causing insulin to be more dominant. This is a signal for fat to be stored.
This dysfunction is typically due to poor eating habits, physical inactivity, and stress.
However, with some simple changes to your diet, exercise program, and lifestyle, anyone can rev up their metabolism and start burning more calories throughout the day.

Bananas are healthy for belly fat and bloating. Its essential component is potassium that helps to dilute and regulate the salt we ingest which is found in many foods.
By eating bananas which have as much as 400 or more grams of potassium, the sodium is regulated and thus produces less swelling. Bananas are the ultimate weight loss food.
Almonds contain a compound that limits fat absorbed by the body. In fact the American Heart Association showed that eating just 1.5 ounces of almonds every day led to a reduction of leg and belly fat.
Cinnamon and nutmeg are thermogenic; they raise your body’s metabolism so you effortlessly burn more calories even while you’re resting. A mere half-teaspoon can give you the full thermogenic effect.
