Top Thermogenic Foods

Eating frequently is not only important for metabolism, it is important for maintaining your lean muscle. The breaking down of food requires energy! If you are not eating enough, your body still needs to get this energy.

Muscle contains vast stores of glucose, if you don’t consume it, it will consume you. So while you may lose weight initially by skipping meals, the negative consequences far outweight the benefits. When you really understand the process of thermogenesis you will never want to skip a meal again!

Below are some top thermogenic foods to consider incorporating in your regular diet:

1. Oatmeal (not instant)
2. Sweet Potato
3. Brown Rice
4. Cottage Cheese (low fat)
5. Eggs
6. Chicken
7. Fish
8. Apples
9. Berries
10. Thermogenic Soup
