In brief: Yes, with muscle

What burns calories? Muscle.
So well-toned strong muscles, especially the bigger muscles of the thigh, butt and abs (the core muscles) will keep your metabolic rate higher.

In brief: Yes Turn it up

There are several ways to pump up metabolism. 1.
Don't skip meals. Evidence suggests that if you skip breakfast, your metabolism will slow. 2. Exercise daily to keep metabolism high 3. Have your doc check some important labs (iron, thyroid, and. B12, cbc).

In brief: More frequent meals

Start by eating at least 5 to 6 times daily.
As you eat more frequent but smaller meals your body will get out of starvation mode and start burning the calories. The rule is to eat every 2 hours, but smaller.
