Best Foods To Fix A Broken Metabolism

Your metabolism determines how quickly your body burns calories. Here’s what to eat to fix a broken metabolism.

If you have trouble losing weight, You might be worried about your metabolism.

This video and article show you what you can eat to revive your metabolism.

Why Is Metabolism Important?

Your metabolism powers everything you do from moving to breathing.

So, if you’re breathing, then your metabolism is working, but it might be sluggish due to years of yo-yo dieting, or from eating a poor diet.

You want to eat foods that will support your metabolism and bring it back to life.

Here’s What To Eat To Fix Your Broken Metabolism:

1. Eat foods high in fiber

Studies have found that high-fiber foods help you lose weight without feeling hungry.

Fiber isn’t easily digested, so it makes your digestive system work, but fiber passes through your system without causes your blood sugar to rise.

Fiber is not found in animal foods, it’s only in plant foods. So make sure you’re eating vegetables, nuts, seeds, and fruits.

2. Eat protein

Your body burns more calories digesting protein than fatty foods or refined carbohydrates.

Eating protein-rich foods, like nuts, seeds, beans, and lean meats can boost your metabolism.

3. Eat plenty of iron-rich foods (especially important for women)

The chemical processes that run your metabolism rely on oxygen.

Your blood cells need iron in order to carry oxygen around your body.

Women lose iron each month due to menstruation.

Eating iron-rich foods like spinach and beans can support your metabolism and promote weight loss.

4. Eat enough

You want your body to work for its calories, so feed it plenty of low-calorie foods that fill up your plate, like leafy greens.

These foods give your stomach and digestive tract a lot to work on, so those calories break down slowly supporting your metabolism for hours.

One Easy Meal Per Day Is All You Need To Fix Your Metabolism

You can pull all of these foods together into just one meal a day by simply adding a large salad to your daily diet.

Make your lunch a large spinach salad topped with black beans and sunflower seeds. This will provide your body with a lot of food, a lot of fiber, a lot of protein and a lot of iron.

If salad bores you, then put spinach, frozen blueberries and a spoonful of ground flaxseed in a blender and create a smoothie.
