    Are there other ways to speed up your metabolism? Try some of the foods on this list of foods that speed up metabolism to see if you can give yourself a metabolic boost.
    Cold Water

    Drinking cold water can boost your metabolism. Not only does water flush out impurities, but as your body attempts to regulate the cold from the water, it gives you a slight metabolic boost to warm you up.

  • Green Tea

    Green tea has been shown to boost metabolism - both because of substances present in the green tea and because of its caffeine content. Green tea is also loaded with antioxidants for good health.
    Grapefruit

    Grapefruit has been shown to reduce insulin levels, which can help to boost your metabolic rate.

    Lean Protein

    Combining lean protein sources with a muscle building fitness regimen can boost your metabolism by increasing your overall lean body mass.

  • Hot Peppers

    The capsaicin in peppers can get your body revving. Capsaicin is often an ingredient in fat burning and metabolism boosting products.
    Coconut

    Recent research suggests that coconut and its oil can help to boost your metabolism. This is because coconut oil contains medium chain triglycerides, that are burned by the body more quickly. Coconut is also a healthy source of fiber, vitamins and minerals.
