1.Fatty Fish

Fatty fish such as salmon, tuna, mackerel, herring and sardines contain large amounts of omega-3 fatty acids which, besides lowering cholesterol, also hasten the metabolism rate. Omega-3 fatty acids alter the level of leptin — a hormone that directly influences metabolism and determines whether you burn calories or store them as fat. Fish also provides ample protein and the best way to eat it is grilled, with steamed vegetables on the side.

2.Citrus Fruits

Fruits such as grapefruit, lemon, sweet lime, papaya, guava and tomatoes are rich in Vitamin C and fibre. Vitamin C helps the body process fat faster and also stimulates the amino acid known as carnitine — carnitine speeds up the body’s fat-burning capacity. Citrus fruits also have high water content and provide around 50 to 75 kcal, leaving us satiated for a longer period of time.

7.Low-Fat Milk

Skim milk, low fat cheese, and yogurt are good sources of calcium, which helps break down fat cells. Some studies show if we do not get enough calcium for the body, then it can trigger the release of calcitrol, a hormone that causes fat stored in the body.

8. Cereals

Jowar, Bajra, and yeast-containing complex carbohydrates, which release glucose slowly when broken down during digestion. Glucose helps keep your blood sugar levels. Grains are also a source of food rich in fiber and vitamin B complex, which plays an important role in metabolic control.
