How metabolic food can increase your metabolism and help you lose weight

Metabolic food, what is it? Actually it is not that hard. Every person has a metabolism. This is the system that takes care of your body, making sure it is on temperature, your heart is breathing and anything else that makes you function.

Your metabolism needs energy and every person's metabolism burns this energy at a different rate, based on factor such as body weight, genetics and environment. The energy that is being referred to is food. So why do you want your metabolism to be high? Simple the higher your metabolism, the more calories you burn, the easier lose weight. 

One way of increasing your metabolism is by going to the gym and do weight lifting. After the workout, your body needs more energy to recover, thus burning more calories.

However, food is the main pillar for effective weight loss. Metabolic food is food that makes you burn fat faster. These foods are:

- Protein rich foods

- Zinc rich foods

- Chili peppers

- Coffee & Tea

- Legumes

- Spices

- Coconut oil

Many people have lost weight effectively with metabolic cooking and I would suggest anyone to try it. Underneath are some fat burning recipes.
