Eat More Fruits and Veggies
Chewing foods takes energy, which is why eating fruits and veggies is one way to boost your metabolism. To maximize their metabolism-boosting benefits, enjoy produce in its whole, natural state — munch on an apple instead of applesauce and make a salad with big chunks instead of smaller, diced pieces. Taking more time to chew means your brain has more time to register that it's full, so you consume fewer calories. Aside from raw fruits and veggies, these filing veggie meals will boost your metabolism.
