4 Metabolism-Supporting Foods You Should Have Every Morning To Lose Weight By March, According To A Doctor

Dr. Amy Lee is a board-certified physician in internal medicine, medical nutrition, and obesity medicine and a fellow at nucific:

As a weight loss specialist, I am dedicated to using my knowledge of nutritional science to optimize my health. I also strongly believe in practicing what I preach to my patients because I have the benefit of learning this information through my years of training.

I would like to share with you what I eat most days in the morning to optimize my metabolism. First, metabolism is a very generic word and what it means is what the body does by using the fuel we eat (in the form of food) to perform various functions and create energy. The body has the ability to store fuel in fat cells or burn it for energy.

These are the foods that tend to promote metabolism, and that I eat most days (when I can):

Eggs, egg whites, and whole eggs

Eggs are a lean protein that consists of all 20 amino acids, which are the building blocks of muscle cells. The more functional your muscle tissues are, the more calories you will burn. This relates to resting metabolism, basically the calories you expend at rest.

Natural yogurt

Also a lean protein derived from dairy products. I say plain because flavored options often contain much more added sugar. Sugar is stored in fat cells, so you should avoid it at all costs. Yogurt is great because of the built-in natural probiotics, which are bacteria that promote good health and play a role in how the body burns calories and even controls our hunger hormones.

Among the many fruit options, I am a big fan of berries due to their stringy nature. Sure, there are some natural sugars, but remember, there’s also the innate fiber that helps the body process sugar much more efficiently so the body doesn’t end up storing it. Fiber also helps eliminate inflammation from the body.

Nut Butter No Added Sugar

I’m a big fan of taking a tablespoon or two of the natural no sugar added almond butter, right out of the jar. I especially enjoy the kind with the oil separated from the nut butter paste which keeps the contents nice and moist. Nut butter is a great lean protein, plus some nut-derived fiber. This is also a great way to get protein as well.
