Not recommended.: Regular exercise would bolster your metabolism. By increasing your muscle mass, you will have a higher metabolic rate again. Some studies suggested that having a cup of coffee prior to exertion may help you burn off more calories but this has not been confirmed. I would not recommend using any drug for this purpose.
