You may or may not be aware that there are certain foods that are natural metabolism boosters. Have you ever thought about combing a few of these to get the most out of a meal?
Pairing the right foods together can make such a difference to achieving your goals. We know that 80% of all weight loss comes down to nutrition and only 20% is exercise.
Update some of your current meals with these combinations below:
Cayenne & Chicken
Chicken is a protein rich food that can also increase post-meal calorie burn by as much as 35%. Cayenne pepper is one of the best spices you can add to any meal! Researchers say that it can help blast away stubborn belly fat!
So next time you’re wondering what to season your chicken with… add cayenne pepper!
Capsicum & Eggs
Did you know that eggs contain a metabolism-boosting nutrient called choline? Or that Capsicums are a good source of vitamin C? Vitamin C can help fight off cortisol which is a hormone that causes fat to accumulate around the midsection.  
So next time you scramble up some eggs, simply roast a few chunks of capsicum and enjoy them together! This combo is nutritionist-approved and is an amazing way to start your day.
Oats & Berries
Both oats and berries contain insoluble fiber which boosts levels of ghrelin (a hormone that controls hunger!) AND berries are packed with chemicals called polyphenols that aid weight loss and can actually stop fat from forming!
We know what we will be having for breakfast or a snack!
Nut Butter & Bananas
Nut butters are packed with unsaturared fats (the good fats) which can help get rid of excess fat stored in the body. Bananas help to ward off mindless snacking so pairing these two together makes for a great snack that will keep you full and help burn fat!
You can either make your own nut butter at home or by one from your local health food store. When buying one in the store make sure there are no unwanted, or unnecessary additives.
Yogurt & Cinnamon
Did you know that diets rich in both calcium and vitamin D can significantly decrease the amount of fat the body absorbs and stores? Cinnamon not only tastes great, but it contains powerful antioxidants that improve body composition and insulin sensitivity.
Since cinnamon also helps to fight inflammation, and yogurt works as a probiotic to balance your gut health — you’re getting much more than just a metabolism boost! There are so many benefits from this pairing!
