In brief: Healthy Lifestyle
Not skipping meals will help boost your metabolism. Eating smaller healthy meals/snacks 4-6 times a day keeps your metabolism going, skipping meals can slow it down.
Exercise also helps. Muscle requires energy, even when you are not doing anything. So the more muscle you have the more your metabolism needs to work to make energy for your muscles. Good luck!

In brief: Increase muscle mass
The healthiest way is to increase muscle mass by healthy diet and weight-bearing as well as aerobic exercises.
More active muscles will burn off more calories, even some when they are resting i.e. During your sleep. Fat does not burn calories! it actually stores enegery/calories!
