Here I give you 12 tips which can help you make a better metabolism. Eat protein in every meal. Rich sources of protein are lean meat, legumes and fish. Be careful in each serving of protein, which it should not exceed the 30 grams. For example, 30 grams are equivalent to one cup of low fat cottage cheese or 2 pieces of chicken breast without the skin.   Avoid foods that are rich in cereals and flour, like bread and pasta.

6. Consume low fat protein. For example, s…
