Cold showers and laughing can make you thin!

Here are these and other interesting ways to boost your metabolism...

How many of us might have that one annoying friend who eats cheesecakes and a load of chocolate, hardly exercises and yet looks thin? The secret to her slimness is having a good metabolism. Translated, metabolism simply means the rate at which body burns the food that is eaten. Some researchers have even argued that a good metabolism beats any dieting regime. Here are different and easy ways to speed up metabolism levels in your body...

Try pineapple
Pineapple has bromelain, which directly impacts the digestive system by aiding the absorption of nutrients. A sports medicine doctor from New York informs that it is used by gastroenterologists to treat gastrointestinal disorders. The bromelain in the fruit helps pancreatic cells break down food substances.

Eat spice it up
Chillies are said to fire up metabolism levels. Studies say that capsaicin generated by the spicy food oxidises layers of fat. Spicy foods are said to rev up the heart rate and with more energy, while digesting these foods, more calories are burned.

Sip on green tea
Flushing it out can also slim you down and green tea helps in this regard. Studies show that catechins found in green tea can boost metabolism and reduce body mass index. Green tea is also known to lower LDL (bad) cholesterol.

Take a cold shower
Bet you didn't know this! It's true. You can melt the pounds off by simply taking a cold shower. This causes you to shiver, which can increase your metabolism due to the muscles contracting. As body tries to get back to its normal temperature, it attempts to warm up and thus activates the immune system, releasing more white blood cells in response. Cold showers also work very well with the lymph system, carrying the fluid up through the body. These showers also improve circulation.

That's right! Researchers say laughing out heartily 100 times is the equivalent in energy expenditure to 10 minutes on a rowing machine or 15 minutes on an exercise bike.
