Tip 1: Spicy foods and foods high in protein help to speed up metabolism
Your metabolism may be boosted by food for a few hours. Thermic Effect of Food, or TEF, is the term used to describe the additional energy required by the body to assimilate and digest food’s components.
The body needs the most energy to digest proteins, therefore increasing your protein intake might increase your metabolism by 15 to 30%. Unlike fat, which only slightly increases metabolism and has a poor nutritional density, carbohydrates only slightly increase it—by 5–10%.
