    To help boost your metabolism, zinc reduces hunger by increasing your level of leptin, a key hormone that alerts the body when you're full so you won't keep eating when you're no longer hungry. You can buy zinc in 15mg packets or simply get it from your multivitamin, which usually contains about 12mg of this essential mineral.
