It must be nice to eat as many carbs as you want, not keep track of your calorie intake each day, work out every now and then, and still have a nice spankin’ summer body.

Yes, I am referring to all you fast metabolism having people.

 However, having a fast metabolism isn’t always greener on the other side. Yes you can eat whatever you want at whatever time you feel like it but if you are consistently feeding your body unhealthy foods, it can affect you in the long run. This is why eating healthy is crucial to living a happy and healthy lifestyle. After all, it’s not about how you look but rather how you feel inside.

 Those who don’t have a fast metabolism have to find alternatives to boost our metabolism. Here I have a list of foods that can boost your metabolism naturally. No pills, au naturel.

Foods That Boost your Metabolism

1. Egg whites. Make scrambled egg whites and add either/or sliced ham, chicken, or turkey with a pinch of pepper and you’ve got yourself a delicious breakfast.

2. Water. According to, drinking cold water “forces your body to use more calories to warm it up.”

3. Chili peppers. Add a few chili pepper flakes to your avocado toast in the morning.
