The difference between a slim person and a big person is simply their metabolism.

Metabolism is that magic that some slim people seem to have which enables them to eat large quantities of food without gaining weight.

In order to rev your metabolism and increase your weight loss process, always eat the following.

  1. Green Tea- One study has found that exercisers who drank 4 cups daily for 3 months had less belly fat than those who sipped caffeinated beverages.

  2. Mushrooms- These are high in D, a vitamin linked to reduced body fat in postmenopausal women.

  3. Tomatoes & Garlic- These two are a power pair, tomatoes have cortisol-lowering vitamin C while garlic boosts metabolism and regulates blood sugar levels.

  4. Chicken & Turkey- A research found that women who get 30% of calories from protein weigh less than those who get half that amount.

  5. Avocado- A good source of belly-fat-quelling fatty acids; great for guac, salads, and smoothies.

  6. Lemon Water- High levels of vitamin C can reduce cortisol; hydration wards off bloat while preventing metabolism plateaus.

  7. Apples.
