Feed Your Body's Furnace

To spike your body's metabolism to get rid of belly fat in the pubic area you need foods that are known for their fat-burning abilities. Protein-rich foods can accelerate the body's metabolism because the body has to work harder to break down protein for the body to digest it. Some protein-rich foods are black beans, chicken breasts, cod fish, egg whites, salmon, string cheese and venison, which is deer meat.

Perform Cardio and Strength Training

Performing cardio and strength training can increase your metabolism. According to Lara McGlashan MFA CPT of "Oxygen Magazine," lifting weights stresses and breaks down your muscles, which respond by building more muscle cells; these new cells require energy, and burn three times more calories than fat cells, even at rest. Some muscle-building exercises that are sure to get your metabolism revved up include barbell front squats, lunges and barbell shoulder presses. Also, according to Charlotte H. Anderson of "Shape Magazine," performing HITT cardio, or high-intensity interval training, boosts the body's metabolism by burning more calories and fat even 24 hours after performing a HITT cardio session, which can help rid you of belly fat in the pubic area.
