8 Foods that Speed Up Metabolism

Since 2012, I’ve been creating digital wellness guides and researching natural beauty products, HIIT workouts, functional exercises, body positivity, self love, and tips helping you explore wellness and feel good.

Welcome to this post: 8 Foods that Speed Up Metabolism.

A recent focus of mine has been on METABOLISM: What slows it, what accelerates it, how important is it? One of the conclusions I’ve come to is that there are certain foods that contain components that actively amp up the body’s metabolism.

With that in mind, I decided to create a “Meta Drink” that contains several powerful foods. I drink it in as few gulps as possible, as the taste is INTENSE! (After you read the ingredients you’ll understand).

8 Foods that Speed Up Metabolism

-Cinnamon (ground)

-Ginger (ground)

-Cayenne Pepper (ground)

-Maca Powder

-Lemon Juice

-Orange Juice

-Grapefruit Juice

-Coconut Vinegar

The liquid ingredients help the ground ingredients come together. Sometimes adding a splash of water helps make this mixture more drinkable. I drink this first thing in the morning and I find it wakes me right up and revs my energy.

Thanks for stopping by this post: 8 Foods that Speed Up Metabolism.

  1. How much of each ingredient?

    Reply
    • I eyeball all of it– I’d estimate it’s about a tablespoon of each ground ingredient and a few tablespoons of each juice & the vinegar.
