I recently had a baby, and I still need to lose 20 lbs. What is a really good way to boost my metabolism?

In brief: Excercise.

Exercise is a sure bet to increase everyone's metabolism. People simply think of caloric burn as the energy expended during exercise, but in truth, exercise increases post-exercise metabolism for hours.
So more calories are burned at rest. Eat foods high in protein and avoid sugars and as much starch as possible.
