7. Drink green tea to boost metabolism
Green tea has been heralded as a superfood (or, rather, super drink) for a while now. There is evidence that the active ingredient catechin helps improve your metabolism. Catechin is an antioxidant that helps release fat from fat cells, speeding up the rate your body converts fat to energy. Green tea has shown to improve your metabolism anywhere between 5 to 17 percent.
What to do: Drink at least one cup of green tea a day, preferably in the morning. Doing this, you’ll be sure to start your day off on the right foot by getting hydrated, and it’s small amount of caffeine will help you get the day started. Try looking for natural green tea that you steep yourself and add some lemon for added detox.
