Answer by Matt
Girl, the first thing you should be doing to boost your metabolism is eating small, frequent meals.

Just digesting food requires you to expend energy, and your body interprets frequent eating as an indication that you are not starving.

Why is this important?

Because thousands of years of evolution have primed your body to look for signs of impending famine — and not eating is one of them. When your body thinks that you don’t have enough food available because you aren’t eating enough, it will begin to conserve energy by slowing your metabolism and holding on to fat. On the other hand, if it thinks you have plenty of food to eat, it will amp up your metabolism and release fat.

Also, by eating smaller meals, you’ll be less likely to consume more calories than you body will need over the next 2-3 hours, which will reduce the likelihood of excess calories getting store as fat.

So in addition to the great foods that you names above, you need to make sure you are eating 5-6 small meals a day. A small meal is around 200-250 calories, which will add up to around 1500 calories a day.

When you do eat these small meals, try to always balance it out with some protein and a little good fat. So for instance, a cup of low-fat cottage cheese, an apple and a tablespoon of peanut butter would be a good, balanced meal. The protein and fat keeps your blood sugar in check and discourages you body from socking away calories as fat.

Other foods that may help boost metabolism include black coffee (no cream or sugar), black tea (unsweetened) and green tea.

Black tea is particularly interesting because recent research has shown that regular black tea consumption can reduce your body’s tendency to store fat by reducing cortisol levels. Cortisol is a hormone that your body releases when under stress and it can cause the body to conserve fat. The people studied who consume tea regularly (three times a day) had lower abdominal fat than those who did not drink tea.

Finally, it’s really important to make sure you’re getting plenty of lean protein and complex carbohydrates in your meals. Lean protein includes low-fat dairy, chicken breast, tuna, seafood and fish, lean cuts of beef like top sirloin and filet, and lean pork like tenderloin. Egg whites and beans (kidney beans, pintos, white beans, garbanzo, etc) are also great protein sources with little or no fat. Oatmeal is one of the best complex carbs you can eat (in addition to fresh/frozen fruits and vegetables.)

Rice is fine in moderation provided it’s brown rice, which has the fiber and hull still intact. You main goal is to eat your food in as “whole” of a state as possible — this ensures you get all of the nutrients and fiber.

Best of luck!
