Eat breakfast: One of the best ways to boost metabolism is to eat a healthy, well-rounded breakfast including whole grains, a hearty protein, and fruit. Choose green tea over coffee. If you don't have cholesterol issues, you could consider the economical choice of oatmeal and a boiled egg. Here is a link to healthy, protein-packed recipe from dr.

Speed metabolism.: Weight training builds lean muscle which is metabolically active around the clock, day and night. While some studies suggest that cardiovascular exercise may stimulate the metabolism for as much as 48 hours after the exercise, it may be much less time. Both are best in combination. As well, eating a small healthy meal of lean protein and complex carbs every 2-3 hours speeds the metabolism.
