Looking for a metabolism booster? You can seamlessly integrate these six foods to boost your metabolism, raise your immunity to disease, and fight the aging process.

Lean Meat

There are several benefits to making lean protein a core component of your overall diet.

1) Your metabolism slows down when you have an iron deficiency. Eating more protein, like lean chicken, beef and turkey will help balance your iron and keep your metabolism in an optimal state.

2) Lean meat takes more energy to digest. The effort and energy required to process these foods keeps your metabolism in high gear.

3) Eating a high protein diet will aid in muscle preservation. Why is this important? Because the muscle mass you have directly effects your resting metabolic rate. The more muscle you have the more energy and calories it requires to maintain.

Chili peppers

You don't have to shower all your food to get the benefits of chili peppers. Adding a bit of chopped pepper to one meal per day will not only kick start your metabolism, but increase your vitamin C intake.


Garlic not only helps boost your metabolism it also increases immunity to aging and disease. Adding garlic to your meals, even in small amounts increases the total calories you'll burn and lower the bodies production of fat cells.


Berries are great metabolism boosters because they're so high in fiber. Even though the body cannot digest fiber, it will expend calories and energy trying. An added benefit is the high fiber "washes out" fat and calories as it passes through the digestive tract. Strawberries, blueberries and blackberries are all great choices.


Coffee, unfortunately, has become an over sweetened beverage enjoyed often in social settings. Thanks to Starbucks and other coffee chains, it has the potential to become an unhealthy habit.
