How can I boost my metabolism?

Drinking two cups of water increases the metabolic rate of men and women by 30 percent.

The metabolic boost starts within ten minutes of drinking water and reaches a maximum within an hour. In the 90 minutes after drinking a single, tall glass of water, study subjects burned about an extra 25 calories. Do that four times throughout the day, and you could wipe out 100 extra calories.
