[ Weight Loss Myth: Certain Foods Make You Burn Calories ]
WebMD says… There is conflicting information about whether or not certain foods can increase your metabolic rate, making you burn more calories. While different foods offer different health benefits, people are often left wondering if calories vary from one food to the next.
A calorie is a calorie, regardless of where it comes from. There are no foods that increase your metabolic rate, or help you burn calories, she says. Even if certain foods do increase your metabolism, the amount is too insignificant to make it a magic bullet.
Instead, start weight lifting. Why? Because by building muscle you increase the number of calories your body burns when at rest. It is also recommended that you eat foods with a high water and fiber content because they stay in your system longer, a plus for taking off the pounds if weight loss is your goal.
