When your blood sugar increases, so does the amount of fat that is stored. Cinnamon can make it easier to maintain weight by help regulating blood sugar. Cinnamon also uses extra energy to metabolize, so this can have you burning calories faster.

Another benefit of cinnamon is that of being an appetite suppressor. It can make you feel full by slowing down the process of how fast food moves through your stomach.

Cinnamon can easily be added to your diet. Try sprinkling some cinnamon on your yogurt or over your oatmeal. You can also add it to your protein shake, coffee, or tea.

Cayenne Pepper

This spice can really jump-start your metabolism There is a natural chemical in spicy food that can have your body burning more energy. Increasing your temperature with heat, your body will burn more calories by trying to cool itself down. However, over time, your body can become accustomed to this extra heat, so it will take more heat to triggere the cooling down process.

Cayenne powder can easily be added to your diet. Add it to stews or soups in small amounts. Another popular way is cooking chicken wings in a sauce with it. Just a small pinch of cayenne pepper can actually increase your metabolism by as much as 25% for as long as three hours after consumption. So it is important to really watch the amount you use to get this metabolism boosting benefit.

Garlic can be used for more than fighting off vampires! It can also fight off the fat too. It can help decrease the production of fat and increase the number of calories burned. The decreasing of the production of fat can also help regulate cholesterol. So not only can you boost your metabolism, you can get other health benefits from garlic.

Garlic also works just like pepper because the body will have to work harder to cool down after you consume it.

Garlic can easily be added to your diet also. You can add it to sauces, mix it with mash potatoes, or sprinkle it in on some bread.
