Do you also dream of losing weight by eating? Well, that will not happen eating tamales, being honest. But, if you add foods such as chia or green tea with cinnamon sticks to your diet, that dream could become a reality. By the way, do you know what foods speed up your metabolism?

1. Fruits of the forest

The fruits of the forest, also called berries, have many health benefits.Strawberries and blueberries, above all, inhibit the accumulation of fats, have anti-inflammatory properties and are beneficial for our intestinal flora. And do you know what is the best part? They're delicious!

2. Cinnamon 

Cinnamon contains many benefits for our body. It not only accelerates the metabolism and favors the elimination of accumulated fats, it also has anti-inflammatory effects and stabilizes blood sugar levels. 

Cinnamon is very versatile; It can be used in both sweet and salty foods.You can get it in branch or powder. The cinnamon stick is almost always used in infusions, such as tea (or coffee, in the case of the bravest).Cinnamon powder combines excellently with desserts, such as rice pudding. 

3. Chia seeds 

Full of nutrients, the chia seed is one of the most used superfoods in the world, both at breakfast and at lunch or when making smoothies. It contains a lot of omega 3, fibers and proteins, all in exchange for a reduced amount of calories. 

As the saying goes: "Chia is health, Chia is love." Well, you're right, I just invented it. But it's a pretty accurate saying, Let's popularize it!

4. Green tea

Not only is it rich in antioxidants, it prevents diabetes and promotes good digestion, it also speeds up your metabolism! 

5. Eggs 

On the one hand, eggs provide us with the essential amino acids that we all need. On the other hand, they are rich in proteins, vitamins and minerals. Consuming eggs, especially at breakfast, will make you feel satisfied during the rest of the day, it will prevent you from eating too much at lunch and it will give you a lot of energy.

6. Ginger

Thanks to its ability to reduce hypertension, inflammation and absorption of glucose, it has risen to fame in a short time. 

But, beyond the benefits mentioned above, ginger accelerates metabolism, promotes the burning of fat and makes us feel less appetite.In addition, it is good for relieving stomach discomfort such as constipation, gas, belching, nausea or indigestion, among others.  

7. Cayenne pepper

Cayenne pepper or red pepper accelerates your metabolism, activating your stress hormones. When the autonomic nervous system is activated, noradrenaline also increases, as if you were trying to run away from something or someone. Through this process, thermogenesis is activated.Just 20 minutes after consuming cayenne pepper, you will be burning fat.

8. Avocado

The avocado, like the egg, gives us tryptophan and many other necessary nutrients, such as omega 3, magnesium, magnesium, copper, iron, zinc, phosphorus, vitamin A, B, C and E. It also contains a lot of folic acid. This, added to iron, keeps us safe from anemia.

With these healthy foods (many of them also delicious) your metabolism will work to the maximum and you will begin to burn calories much more quickly and effectively. However, it is always good to accompany these diets with exercise, although as the saying goes, "the abdominals are made in the kitchen". Remember that these foods alone do not work as well as they do in a balanced diet.
