Milk~ contains calcium, which acts as a metabolic trigger (helps boost metabolism). A University of Tennessee study found that dieters who consumed 1,200 to 1,300 mg of calcium daily lost almost twice as much weight as dieters who ingested less calcium. Also, drinking a cold glass of milk helps you burn calories, since your body needs to heat up the milk using energy.
Green Tea~ has a chemical called EGCG that causes the brain and nervous system to run faster and helps you burn more calories. Researchers found this out, along with the great news that you don’t have to engage in exercise for this to happen; it occurs when your body is at rest. In other words, drinking a cup of green tea before bed can help you burn more calories in your sleep.
Grapefruit~ The grapefruit diet is not a myth. Eating half a grape fruit a day can really help, especially at breakfast. Grapefruit is a NEGATIVE CALORIE FOOD which means it takes more calories to digest the food than are actually in the food. Studies indicate that the unique chemical properties in this vitamin C-packed citrus fruit reduce insulin levels, which promotes weight loss and boost metabolism.
Try adding these to your diet! They’re low in calories, and help you burn more (:
