High Thermic Effect, Boost Your Metabolism

Burn More Calories 

Did you know that certain foods can actually boost your metabolism? It is called the high Thermic Effect. Protein-rich foods actually take more energy to digest than carbs or fats. Thus increasing our body’s metabolic rate by increasing our energy expenditure. 

Boosting Your Metabolic Rate You May Be Able To Lose More Excess Weight

It has been proven that people who consume a minimum of 29% of their total daily calories from protein, had a higher metabolic rate than those who consumed fewer protein-based foods. 

The thermic effect of food (TFE) refers to the number of calories your body needs to digest, absorb, and process the nutrients in your foods. 

Diets high in protein have also been shown to reduce the drop in metabolisms often seen during weight loss by helping your body hold on to its muscle mass.
