We've learned about so many life hacks, but did you know that there's a hack that tricks our metabolism to be faster? Here are 5 health hacks you should know.

  1. Add lemon to your water.

  1. Add cinnamon to your drinks or meals.

Cinnamon has proved to be one of the fat-burning elements that we love! It helps maintain your insulin levels and can control carbohydrates, too! (via idealbite.com)

  1. Drink coffee before a workout.

Your workouts will be twice as effective with coffee because it improves our stamina and circulation, while reducing pain and preserves muscles. Just make sure that your caffeine fix has no cream or sugar in it. Drink it black! (via thethings.com)

  1. Eat spicy food.

Eating spicy food is actually a workout without the actual workout! Most studies suggest that when you eat a spicy meal, you'll have a temporary rise in metabolism by about 8%. (via fitday.com)
