Coffee can be a great way to give you energy as well as some antioxidants, but if it’s not laden with cream and syrup.

In addition to giving you the metabolism-boosting caffeine jolt you crave, green tea is a rich source of antioxidants called catechins. For the best results,it is recommended to use fresh-brewed green tea only — it will take just a couple minutes to make it.
6. Snack On Yogurt
Probiotics may help you to lose weight, especially if you are a women. Women who consume probiotics can lose more weight.
Consuming probiotics in food form has other waist-friendly benefits: “Yogurt, like other full-fat dairy, also has a fatty acid called conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) that studies show can improve fat burning,” says Virgin. You should avoid fruit-on-the-bottom varieties, which can have as much sugar as a candy bar.
7. Take A Laugh Break

11. Stand Up When Your Phone Rings
Standing up while you’re talking on phone, will nearly doubles the amount of calories your body will burn. For example a 150-pound person burns 72 calories for an hour sitting and 129 calories for an hour standing. Walking around in the office will increase the burn to 143 calories for an hour. So you should make it a habit to stand and walk around each time the phone rings and you should get up out of your chair at least once every hour.
12. Pick Organic Produce
At the grocery store you should pick products that are organic produced. Pesticides that are found on conventionally grown produce, called “obesogens,” are blamed for slowing metabolism and predisposing some people to gain weight. One of the biggest hidden causes of weight loss resistance is toxicity. So you should buy organic whenever it’s possible and choose the cleanest, highest-quality cuts of meat.
13. Take One Bite At A Time
It may not directly influence metabolism but wolfing down your food makes it more likely you’ll eat more. It takes about 20 minutes before yhe hormone called cholecystokinin (CCK) to tell your brain to stop eating. When you engulf a burger and fries, you don’t give CCK enough time to relay the message to your brain, and you eat too much. Speed eating also raise the fat-storing insulin levels. Just as important as eating the right diet is slowing down and becoming mindful when you eat.
14. Switch Off Your Phone
The exposure to the type of blue light that is emitted by smartphones, computers, and tablets immediately before and after dinner increased hunger and impacted glucose metabolism in people who participated in a small Northwestern University study. The study authors aren’t sure of the reasons for the link, and say more research is needed — but even if the link between blue light and appetite doesn’t hold up in later studies, other research shows that limiting mealtime distractions helps control portions.
