Posted by Kimberly Vegliante on Oct 26, 2017 6:00:00 PM

  • FODMAP
  • Whole 30
  • Gluten Free
  • Lactose Free
  • 2 ingredient
  • 3 ingredient

  • Vegan

Everyone would like to burn more calories faster and better, but is it actually possible to boost your metabolism and lose weight just by eating?  It is, if you eat the right kinds of foods at the right times, in the right amounts, and by eating those foods that burn more calories by chewing and digesting them.  

 

At one time, it was thought that a calorie was simply a calorie.  We used to think that if you eat 500 calories of carrots or 500 calories of cheesecake, your body will burn or store them exactly the same, right?  Wrong!  Newer science tells us that calories are not all alike, and it's important to know how they affect your metabolism.
