This Surprising Food Was Just Proven to Speed Up Your Metabolism

You eat right. You exercise. So why are you still having trouble losing weight and keeping it off? Put down the zoodles, because a food you’ve been cutting out of your diet might be the key to a faster metabolism: whole grains. 

Here’s the gist: In a new study conducted by Tufts University, half of the test subjects were given a diet rich in whole grains, like whole-wheat bread and whole-wheat pasta. The other half was fed a diet that replaced those whole grains with refined carbohydrates, like white rice and white bread. The subjects eating whole grains lost an average of 100 calories more a day, just by consuming the extra fiber.

Does that mean you should start eating whole-grain pizza and pasta every day? Probably not. But should you swap brown rice for white in your sushi whenever possible? Totally.
