    The truly observant will note that all of the foods from the negative calorie foods list previously posted on this site are included in this list. That wordpress themes is because it takes energy for your body to process food and if you are eating less calories than you are burning then your body has to burn fat as fuel to do its job thereby putting your metabolism in overdrive.

    In the interest of giving you a complete list, the how and whys of each of these foods powers was omitted. If you want to know more about a particular food then please leave a comment and it will be added to the list of articles that will be written in the near future.

      Honestly, If you really want to lose weight I would cut out as many bread products and pastas as possible. I am not saying go on a low carb or no carb diet because that doesn’t suit everyone though you can if you want to. If you are looking for a safe low carb diet look here (http://theskinniestyou.com/metabolism-miracle-review/). Simply cutting out as much bread as possible will melt the pounds off faster than you can believe so really the best metabolism boosting bread is no bread. As for butter a little bit won’t kill your diet but it isn’t really metabolism boosting. I guess a vegan butter made of soy might count as metabolism boosting but really if you are cutting out bread you won’t be needing much butter. Smart balance light is actually vegan and sold in most stores including Walmart and tastes like regular butter. I use it and love it. Hope that helps.
