1.  Build muscle:  People who have muscle have a higher resting metabolic rate.  Every pound of muscle consumes 6 calories a day to maintain itself. 

2.  Kick up your workout:  By having a high-intensity exercise will give you a longer increase in your resting metabolic rate.

3.  Drink more water:  To process calories our body needs water so, increasing your water intake will help you burn more calories.

4.  Have your drinks on the rocks:  Research shows that 5 out of 6 glasses of water on the rocks takes up an extra 10 calories a day.

5.  Eat more often:  Eating small meals through out the day will increase your metabolism, but when you eat big meals with many hours between your meals your metabolism slows down.

6.  Spice up your meals:  Spicy foods kick up your metabolism. By eating a tablespoon of chopped red or green chili peppers can temporarily boost your metabolism by 23 percent.

7.  Eat more protein:  The body burns twice as many calories digesting protein then fat or carbohydrates.

8.  Drink black coffee:  Black coffee benefits you by providing a short-term metabolic increase.  A study showed that 2 cups of coffee prompt a 145 pound woman to burn 50 extra calories.  The coffee has to be just black coffee, because when you add cream, sugar, or flavored syrups will have you take in more calories then you burn.

9.  Drink green tea:  Contains caffeine and catechins which have been shown to rev up your metabolism for a couple of hours.

10.  Avoid crash diets:  Eating fewer than 1,000 calories a day is disastrous for increasing your metabolism.
