If you want to boost your metabolism, you need to include whole foods into your daily diet. Nutrient-rich whole foods are naturally cleansing which is the key to effortless weight loss.
Excess weight will stay on your body if you have poor digestion, are dehydrated, eat more calories than you burn, don’t exercise regularly, have hormone issues, thyroid issues, leptin resistance, or have a buildup of toxins in your system.
Once you begin to support your digestive system, remove toxins from your body, exercise, balance your hormones, reboot your thyroid, and stay hydrated, your metabolism will improve which will help you maintain your idea weight.
Whole foods are rich in all the nutrients your body needs to boost your metabolism and stay healthy.
Two of my favorite healing foods for boosting your metabolism include:
Coconut meat, virgin raw coconut oil, and the coconut milk from the coconut are all fantastic whole foods to eat for a healthy metabolism. Coconut oil and the meat of coconuts contain medium-and short-chain fatty acids that the body immediately uses for energy production. Coconuts contain the fatty acids lauric acid, capric acid, and caprylic acid. This unique composition of coconut meat, coconut milk, and its oil will increase your metabolic rate and prevent coconut from being stored as fat when you eat it.
Beets are one of my favorite foods. They are a potent blood builder and they help remove toxins from the body. Beets are rich in key antioxidants, vitamin C, vitamin A, iron, calcium, magnesium, folate, and fiber which all work together to keep the body strong and boost your metabolism.
