Do specific foods or activities increase my bodies, metabolic rate?
Your body uses more calories to break down and utilize carbohydrates and proteins than it does when utilizing fats. Therefore, a higher carb & protein intake can theoretically increase your metabolism, but only ever so marginally so don’t worry about it. Just eat as close to a balanced diet as possible – and don’t tell me you don’t know what that is – because you do. If you don’t know here is a solution RESET. On the activity issue, use your common sense – the harder you work the more calories you burn.
