Foods That Jump-Start Your Metabolism
ALMONDS: Because they’re naturally dense, almonds provide a large amount of healthy macronutrients and good calories in a small portion size.
SALMON: Even though it contains more calories than most white fish, salmon is low in saturated fat and high in protein and the healthy omega-3 essential fatty acid.
SPINACH: Leafy green vegetables like spinach provide more nutrients than any other food. Eating spinach can protect against arthritis, colon cancer, heart disease and osteoporosis.
WHEY PROTEIN: The highest quality and best form of protein, it provides the body with the necessary building blocks to produce amino acids that are used for building muscle tissue.
WATER: Although not technically a food, nearly 67 percent of our body weight is actually water weight. Our muscles are 75 percent water and our blood is 83 percent water, so it only makes sense that adequate hydration is needed to enjoy optimal body function.
