Metabolism is genetic, but it can be improved by eating the right food. Metabolism is the body's process of converting what you eat and drink into energy. In this process, calories from food and beverages are combined with oxygen to produce the energy that the body needs in order to function. Instead of munching on chips, cookies, and other unhealthy snacks, switch to healthier options that boost your metabolism and promote a healthy weight loss. Listed below are healthy and tasty snack options for boosting metabolism that are all below 100 calories.
