Thermogenesis is the process of burning stored fat for fuel. Thermogenic foods and supplements speed up the body’s metabolism, making it burn fat faster.
It’s important to note that thermogenic supplements lose their effectiveness over time. These products are usually made from ephedra-like chemicals and herbs, plus caffeine and other stimulants. They can even be dangerous if you take too many, or take them for long periods of time.
Thermogenic foods, on the other hand, have a more subtle effect. But you can eat them indefinitely without doing harm to your nervous system. Enjoy some metabolism-boosting servings of citrus fruit, spicy peppers, and green tea. Just a few servings a day can make your body burn more calories and make you lose weight faster!
