This infographic, entitled "Metabolism Boosting Foods! (Vegetarian)" lists 23 foods that are commonly thought to increase an individual's metabolic rate and aid in weight loss, including that stubborn belly fat.
A person's metabolic rate refers to the amount of energy (calories) expended by the individual and depends on many factors including his or her activity level, age, gender, height and weight.
Most of the foods listed in this infographic (with the notable exception of eggs and yogurt) contain good amounts of dietary fiber, which is considered a key component in successful weight loss.

Some studies indicate that eggs and dairy in the diet may confer small weight loss benefits in the short-term. Those studies have been disputed. But, even the findings in those studies are true, are the negligible weight loss benefits worth the long-term health risks of consuming animal products?
