Grapefruit In addition to vitamins C and A, pink and red grapefruit contain fat-burning, hunger-busting compounds.
These bitter compounds help regulate appetite and metabolism.
Cinnamon The potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory compounds in cinnamon make it especially beneficial for weight control.
Cinnamon helps regulate blood glucose levels, supports healthy metabolism and reduces food cravings.
Beans and lentils provide plant-based lean protein, belly-filling fiber and nutrients like iron, zinc, folate, magnesium and potassium with minimal calories and fat.
This makes them excellent foods for supporting metabolism and weight management.
Peppers All varieties of peppers contain metabolism-supporting capsaicin which has been shown to promote fat oxidation and energy expenditure.
They also supply antioxidants, vitamins and satiating fiber for few calories. Add peppers liberally to meals and snacks.
Oats Whole grain oats digest slowly to keep you feeling fuller longer while minimizing blood sugar spikes.
Oats contain beta glucan fiber that may increase post-meal calorie and fat burn as well.
