Exercise! Any type of physical activity helps.
Eating a good breakfast every day helps your metabolism get going in the morning.
Strength training helps too, I think.

yeah, build muscle! Muscle is like a fat burning machine, the bigger the machine the better! Generally at least

Eat as much as you can get away with. And in addition to exercise, be active all day in small ways.

Also, get tons of sleep, trust me on this one. When you are tired your metabolism slows down.

calorie shifting- or atleast an 'off diet day" every 3 weeks or so. Don't go crazy, just eat a bit more to jump start metabolism again

I agree with all of you.

Kelly315 - that works so great for me. It just sort of kick-starts your body. I did that when I was on Atkins & it always worked. And even now that I'm just eating less calories it helps a lot. It takes a couple of days to get rid of the water weight, but then you get back to losing.

Definitely build muscle. Muscle is metabolically active and the more you build, the more you'll burn calories, even at rest.
