1. Lift weights: The average woman in her 30s who strength-trains 30 minutes twice a week will increase her resting metabolism by 100 calories a day.

2. Eat breakfast: Eating a nutrient-rich morning meal shortly after getting out of bed literally wakes up your metabolism.

3. Eat lots of protein: Because it takes longer to burn protein than carbs or fat, your body expends more energy absorbing the nutrients in a high-protein diet.

4. Stand: Sitting too much is bad for your help, get on your feet.

5. Cold water: Drinking lots of cold water speeds up your metabolism temporarily.
