If you want to increase your metabolic rate, it is very important to eat plenty of calcium-rich foods.

A University of Tennessee study confirmed that people who consume 1,200 to 1,300 milligrams of calcium a day lose twice as much weight as those who consume it in smaller amounts.

1. Omega-3 Fatty Acids

Omega-3 fatty acids are found primarily in fish but are also present in nuts and seeds, flax, and hemp seed oil.

These foods speed up metabolism because they reduce the production of a hormone called leptin (a natural chemical that slows metabolism).

In fact, a study at the Mayo Clinic found that African tribes that included plenty of fish in their diet had leptin levels five times lower than those without.
