Sound yummy? Okay, Ladies. Let’s start

1. The thermic effect is… ?

The thermic effect of food (TEF) relates to how many calories your body burns up when you eat. So eating high TEF foods is a metabolic rate booster, and it’s a way to speed up your metabolism (The Thermic Effect Of Food (What is TEF?), 2020).

The increase in metabolism from the thermic effect is largely dependent on the types of food you eat (Fat Loss Diet: Foods With a High Thermic Effect – Instant Knockout, 2020).

When it comes to different macronutrients, some require more energy to digest and therefore raise the metabolism higher than others (Fat Loss Diet: Foods With a High Thermic Effect – Instant Knockout, 2020).

Thermogenic foods boost your metabolism or are high in fat or protein; which requires more energy to digest and, so raise your metabolism. When you consume a diet heavy in thermic foods, even while resting, your metabolic rate will be higher. Researchers call this the “thermic effect.” (10 Healthy Foods That Burn Fat – The Thermic Effect of Foods, 2020) 

Here is a list of foods with a high thermic effect:

  • Eggs
  • Fatty Fish
  • Apple Cider Vinegar
  • Turmeric
  • Green Tea
  • Ginger
  • Peppers
  • Coffee
  • Olive Oil

So, now you know of a few calorie burning foods. And you want to maximize your calorie burning — who doesn’t? That said, please understand your TEF is a small part of your calorie expenditure, but you can boost it (Thermic Effect of Food and How Many Calories You Burn From Eating, 2020).

Try this to boost your TEF:

  • Get regular exercise.
  • Drink more coffee, green tea, or other drinks with caffeine.
  • Consume more ginger.
  • Eat larger meals (instead of smaller, frequent meals) throughout the day.
  • Eat more protein.
