    Are there any foods out there which speed up metabolic rate ?


    The hand of time rested on the half-hour mark, and all along that old front line of the English there came a whistling and a crying. The men of the first wave climbed up the parapets, in tumult, darkness, and the presence of death, and having done with all pleasant things, advanced across No Man's Land to begin the Battle of the Somme. - Poet John Masefield.

    Foods high in fibre and low in calories should significantly speed up your metabolism as does aerobic excercise and drinking plenty of water.

    I heard hot food would do the trick. Try to add Tabasco to just about everything you eat.

    heck, caffeine speeds up metabolism. Caffeine keeps on the insulin glycolysis/break down of glycogen in the liver mechanism. Yes that pathway is cAMP dependent, which in turn leads to break down of sugar, which is why many of your cells are more active, all that energy and nothing to do with it. Other things are like actual insulin, amphetamines, which do the same thing as caffeine but by another means, exercise, some say Vit. B's, they help by promoting production of ATP, NAD, FAD. all of which are direct products of metabolism or active players. You see carnitine in a lot of stuff, thats the protein that brings fats to the mitochondria so they can be oxidized. However if you eat a protein suppliment, most likely it will get denatured by the stomach acids, and not beable to be absorbed anways by the intestines.
