Method 1: By Eating Fat Burning Foods

Celery is a fat-burning food.

There are some foods that may help boost your metabolism regardless of whether or not you are exercising. Some of these foods are called negative calorie foods, because they take more energy to digest than their total calories. Others offer a high return in nutrition for a low amount of calories and other have diuretic properties that help eliminate water from your system. Some fat melting foods work because they contain mild stimulants, that boost your metabolism or they contain antioxidants that encourage your metabolism to turn ingested calories into fuel, rather than fat.

  1. 1
    Eat whole foods, which forces your body to burn more calories than refined foods.
    Good examples of whole foods include oats, long grain brown rice and whole grain bread. White flour, white rice and corn meal are examples of low fiber, stripped foods that quickly to sugar in your bloodstream and cause weight gain. Furthermore, your body has to work harder to digest the fiber in whole foods because they still have the germ or hull on the grain.
    Cooked brown rice is a good example of a whole food.

    Choose lean cuts of meat and forgo being a vegetarian or vegan.
    If you are not willing to exercise then you need to eat a very high protein diet, which has a thermogenic effect on the body. When you eat meat you expend about a third of the calories contained in the meat to burn it off. This means that a 300-calorie piece of chicken requires another 100 calories to even digest it. This causes weight loss without you making much of an effort at all, except for eating the piece of meat in the first place.
    Chicken is a high protein thermogenic food because it takes more calories to digest it than it contains.
