You can burn extra calories every day when you choose to eat healthy foods that rev up your metabolism. Healthy foods together with exercise have a vital role in triggering and increasing your metabolism and facilitating your metabolic functions as well.

What follows are 10 foods that are most certainly in the arsenal of ingredients that will boost your metabolism and help you to stay trim.

Granny Smiths Apples

A Granny Smith a day could keep you slim, a study found. Non-digestible compounds found in apples promote the growth of friendly gut bacteria, which stabilises the metabolism and creates satiety. That’s according to the results of a new study that singled out Granny Smiths as your best bet for gut health.

Eggs

Eggs are full of protein and contain nine essential amino acids your body needs to thrive. Eggs are cheap and versatile,don’t like them boiled, scramble them or make a delicious omelet.  People who eat higher amounts of protein at breakfast feel more satisfied and are less likely to reach for unhealthy snacks later on.

Berries

Berries are rich in disease-fighting polyphenols; and compelling new evidence reveals that a powerful way to protect aging arteries is to consume more plant polyphenols. These effects are particularly notable in cranberries, strawberries, and blueberries. Studies suggest these compounds reduce body-weight gain, inhibit fat accumulation, possess anti-inflammatory and anti-diabetic properties, and alter gut flora to inhibit the growth of harmful pathogens.

Avocados

Avocados are high in appetite-suppressing healthy fats, meaning it doesn’t spike blood sugar levels and can take up to six hours to fully digest. Avocadoes are also rich in L-carnitine, an amino acid that may fuel your metabolism. Need say more, more avocados in your plate.
