Three ways to boost your metabolism

Over time, our metabolism slows down, which can lead to putting on unwanted pounds. There are dietary adjustments which can help reduce weight gain. Try these suggestions:

  • Choose healthy carbohydrates. Replace refined, high-glycemic-index carbs (white bread and white rice) with unrefined, low-glycemic choices (whole grains, vegetables, fruits, and beans). The latter do not cause the spike in blood glucose levels that encourage the storage of fat.
  • Use spices. Capsaicin, black pepper and ginger all generate heat in the body, leading to more calories burned.
  • Drink green tea. The main antioxidant polyphenol in green tea stimulates the body to help burn calories.
