3 Metabolism Myths Busted

3 Metabolism Myths Busted! 

1. Green tea and chili peppers boost metabolism  

The truth? Some studies have shown that these foods temporarily speed up metabolism, but it isn’t enough to offset eating tons of extra calories.

2. Eating late at night slows down metabolism 

The truth? Weight gain is caused by the extra calories you eat, not when you eat them. Even though you’re more likely to snack aimlessly late at night.

3. Your metabolic rate can’t change 

The truth? You can actually boost metabolism by building lean muscle mass. That’s because muscle burns more calories per hour than fat.
