- This one is a mouthful, but have you ever heard of monounsaturated fatty acids, or MUFA’s? Simply put, this is a kind of fat that’s found in plentiful amounts in foods like peanut butter, seeds, chocolate, avocados, nuts, and olive oil. Researchers have found that, when 20% of the calories from a person’s daily diet comes from MUFA’s over a long term period of time, a small but significant uptick takes place in fat burning and calorie burning. These foods also keep your appetite down and maintain your blood sugar levels.
- Conjugated linoleic acids are found in dairy products along with calcium and vitamin D. These acids help to push glucose into your cells and stimulate fat burning. CLA’s won’t create a massive amount of fat burning, but when you eat them regularly in conjunction with the other supplements, it can nudge the efficiency of your metabolism in a stronger direction.
- Green tea is packed with polyphenols, an antioxidant which is your metabolism’s best friend. Researchers have found that in can jack your resting metabolic rate by as much as 17%. The warm feeling you get when you drink green tea is caused by your body heating up and burning calories as heat. A cup of green tea is not only perfect for a cold day, but it’s a perfect appetite suppressant.
