Here are three ways to increase/boost your metabolism naturally. Easy things that can be added to your daily routine. Found on Livestrong's website, these way may be of no surprise to some of you, but can definitely be a good reminder!
1. Eat Grape fruit:
Research suggests that eating grapefruit, which is packed with fiber and vitamin C, can help you get lean. In the May 2010 issue of the "American Journal of Physiology-Endocrinology and Metabolism," scientists found that grapefruit is rich in nootkatone, a compound that activates a protein that increases energy expenditure.

2. Drink Green Tea
Drinking green tea not only supplies heart-protecting antioxidants, but it also supports the metabolism. A study published in the December 1999 issue of the "American Journal of Clinical Nutrition," subjects consuming green tea extract elevated their energy expenditure and fat oxidation for 24 hours.

3. Drink More Water
Drinking adequate amounts of water is crucial for overall health. A study published in the September 2000 issue of "Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism," reported that drinking a half of liter of water caused a boost subjects' metabolic rate by 30 percent that began within 10 minutes and lasted for 30 to 40 minutes.
