Thermogenic Foods That Will Give You Warmth in the Wintertime

11/14/2016 6:50 PM Comments Posted By Floralyn Teodoro
To lessen your heating equipment costs for at least a bit this cold season, get to know the different food items that will help keep you warm naturally.

With the projected increase in winter heating costs for this year, as compared to 2015, the winter’s worth of needed natural gas for an average home will reach $635. According to the Energy Information Administration, gas bills will rise by more than 20 percent for this year’s winter.

You can lessen your winter heating costs by at least a bit with the foods you eat. By supporting your body’s production of heat, you can feel extra warm this cold season without the extra costs.

“Thermo” means heat while “Genesis” means create. When put together, Thermogenesis refers to the production of heat within the tissues of the body to raise the body’s internal temperature. There are different classifications of thermogenic processes: exercise-associated (EAT), non-exercise activity (NEAT), and diet-induced (DIT).

But, in this article, we’ll only tackle diet-induced thermogenesis (DIT). DIT is the production of heat in the body, especially in the body’s brown adipose tissue (BAT), which happens after eating certain thermogenic foods. The brown fat cells produced are great thermogenic machineries that provide an alternative means of heat regulation.

As this season’s temperature gets cooler and cooler each day, you may be starting to layer on thicker clothes to keep you warm on the outside. To regulate your internal body temperature too and keep you warm on the inside, here are foods and beverages you must intake for extra warmth:

Lean meats & proteins

Diets rich in protein produces the most thermic effect inside the body. The calories from protein are transformed to heat rather than merely stored as available fat.

Sources of protein include poultry, nuts, eggs, and lean meat such as pork tenderloin and lean beef. Protein also helps combat iron deficiency which causes cold hands and feet.

Complex carbohydrates

Complex carbohydrates such as brown rice, whole grain products, potatoes, oats, and fiber-rich foods need more energy to break down than simple carbohydrates such as food products made from white, refined flour.

A longer time of breaking down food results in more energy used which then results in a higher production of internal heat in the body.

Fresh ginger root

Besides the many health benefits of ginger , it also induces thermogenesis which gives off body warming benefits.

Ginger aids in healthy blood flow and in keeping away the chills brought by wintertime.

More so, this wonder spice can be added to different meals, soups, and even beverages.

Green tea

Green tea is rich in caffeine and catechins that both work great in boosting the body’s heat production. This is also why those who want to lose weight make green tea as one of their go-to diet beverages.

But, if you’re not much of a tea person, you can sip coffee instead. The caffeine in coffee also induces the body’s heat production.

Bananas

This potassium-rich fruit does more than just help you aid your muscle cramps. The B vitamins and magnesium present in bananas also help in regulating your body’s internal temperature during the cold season.

More than a banana’s health benefits, its versatility is also remarkable. It can be added to different dishes, snacks, smoothies, etc.

Chili Peppers

The capsaicin content of chili peppers have been proven not just to stimulate energy-burning, it also converts white fat to brown adipose tissue or (BAT).

As compared to other spicy foods that just make you feel hot, chili peppers directly induce thermogenesis. Likewise, the piperine in black pepper also does the same.

The next time you go grocery shopping, make sure to purchase the above thermogenic foods to help keep you warm this cold season – the natural way. You’ll cut down your heating bills as well!
