Getting your Metabolism Rate right on Track

Most people blame their being overweight on having a slow metabolic process in their body. The truth is in the details. Metabolism is connected to weight gain but its slowness is not responsible for gaining excessive weight. What you eat and your physical activity are the main culprits. However you can change your eating habits once you know the right kind of food to eat to improve your metabolism.

Egg whites

Egg whites are rich in branched-chain amino acids, which keep your metabolism stoked, says Chicago nutritionist David Grotto, RDN. Eggs are also loaded with protein and vitamin D.

Lean meat

Lean meat is full of iron; deficiencies in the mineral can slow metabolism.
