While it sometimes feels like the speed at which your metabolism is burning can seem out of your control, certain foods and habits can promote a happy, supercharged metabolism. On top of exercise and adequate sleep, the foods that you consume every day play a large part in how efficiently your body is able to break down the food that you consume. Avoid a sluggish, sub-par metabolism, and feed yourself with metabolism-boosting foods that can help you reach your weight-loss goals that much quicker.
