While there are many foods that lead to weight gain, there are others that do the opposite. If you want to burn more fat, try adding these foods to your diet to give your metabolism a natural boost:

Whole grains – foods like oatmeal and brown rice are rich in fiber and your body burns twice as many calories breaking them down than processed foods.

Lean meats – according to health.com, Protein has a high thermogenic effect: You burn about 30% of the calories the food contains during digestion (so a 300-calorie chicken breast requires about 90 calories to break it down).

Hot peppers – chili peppers have a special compound that gives your body kick, generating heat that helps melt away the calories. Many health experts recommend adding cayenne or hot sauce to your soups, eggs or meat for an extra metabolic boost.
