Are there foods I can eat that will help boost my metabolism? Suzie Sawyer says Foods can help boost the metabolism for different reasons. Protein-rich foods, which include meat, fish, eggs, beans and dairy, use energy in the form of calories to digest them. Some foods and drinks are also known as ‘thermogenic’ as they speed up the body’s metabolism. Green tea seems to have this effect, as do chilli peppers and ginger. Green tea is also high in antioxidants, so drink three cups daily, if possible. The thyroid gland is one of the main controllers of metabolic rate throughout the body – it controls cellular metabolism. Selenium is one of the key trace minerals needed to produced thyroid hormones. However, selenium is frequently deficient in our foods due to reduced levels…

Sugar is typically added to give the products more flavour and make it tastier. Following a low-fat eating plan for weight loss inevitably also means that vitamins and…

addictive foods

For some, it’s milk chocolate. For others, it’s crisps. I’ve even met one person who simply could not keep away from mini rice cakes spread with butter. Almost everyone who has struggled with their weight has a few foods that can be relied upon to wreak havoc on even the most carefully-planned diet. Aside from being a source of immense frustration, these foods also share another feature: all of them contain a ratio of two parts carbohydrate to one part fat. The science backs this up. In 2015, researchers from the University of Michigan took 120 students, offered them a choice of 35 different foods, and asked them to fill in the Yale Food Addiction Scale, a measure of how addictive you find a particular food. The foods were then ranked from…
