Boost your metabolism: exercise more.

Foods that make you lose weight: lower calorie ones.

There's no magic, just do more and eat less.

You're welcome. Lots of people will have all kinds of theories, but the reality is your fat stores are a result of the balance between how much energy you burn over a week and how much you consume over the same period. 

Daily fluctuations don't make much difference, it's more what you are doing consistently.

3 meals / day vs 5 meals / day does not really matter. 

Find extra ways to be active ( be creative) and reduce meal size, calorie content, frequency (once again, be creative and vigilant - cut out butter, cream, that extra spoonful).

You'll lose weight, that is all you need to know. The rest is over thinking.

So i had this article on metabolism. Hope it helps!

Salmon, sardines and tuna are great sources of Omega-3 fatty acids, which will lower the level of a hormone called leptin in your body. Studies show that it's easier to lose and keep off weight when your leptin levels are lower, rather than higher. There are other benefits to eating fish, as well, like the cancer-fighting and healthy-heart properties of Omega 3.

Foods rich in protein like eggs, lean meats, beans and even peanut butter will boost your metabolism. Protein is a necessary building block for our bodies and it's vitality important in keeping a metabolism going. Of these foods that speed up a slow metabolism, peanut butter gets unfairly criticized as a bad food choice. But with any food, moderation is key. You can enjoy peanut butter in moderation and still lose weight steadily, or avoid gaining any lost weight back. Peanut butter can be a healthy addition to your diet, with its good fats and metabolism-boosting protein.

Other foods that speed up a slow metabolism include foods containing hot peppers like jalapeño, cayenne or habanero. Spicy foods make your body run hotter for up to 3 hours. They're thermogenic, in that just the act of digesting them speeds your metabolism.

Whole grains like oatmeal boost metabolism by being slow to digest. This gives you the feeling of being full longer, and serves to keep blood sugar levels on an even keel. This keeps minimal amounts of insulin in your bloodstream, and keeps your body from going into fat-storing overdrive. High levels of insulin are linked to metabolic syndrome symptoms like obesity, belly fat, and high blood pressure among others. So whole grains should be a vital part of your diet for many reasons, not just because they're one of the top foods that speed up a slow metabolism

Olive oil is one of the foods that speed up a slow metabolism thanks to its load of Omega-3 acids. It's a great source of good monounsaturated fat, the kind of good fat your body has to have, too.

Don't forget that exercise boosts your metabolism in a more permanent way, by increasing active muscle tissue throughout your body. And eating in itself keeps your metabolism stoked. Never skip meals, especially not breakfast, that's like refusing to put logs on a fire but expecting it to keep burning anyway. And add these foods that speed up a slow metabolism to your diet to bring you closer to your goals.

Increasing the amount of fat you consume ( olive oil etc ) will not help. Sorry, and I don't mean to cause disharmony, but it won't.

Thermogenesis means creating heat. You will not significantly increase your body temperature, by eating a food, it's pretty constant at rest. 

You will increase body temperature by exercising. 

If this is offensive to the other poster, I'll remove it, but the reality is : less energy in, more energy out. 

That's it. 

Truly.

I did not mean that u have to increase intake of olive oil- I meant that u should take olive oil instead of unhealthy oils. And if u didn't notice it is mentioned at the end of the article that exercising is the best and the most permanent metabolism booster!

No offense taken!

Yeah I did notice that, I mentioned it to clarify because in most instances I have found that people having trouble losing weight take recommendations about fats and oils as a sort of free pass to consume these fats because they promote weight loss, which clearly they don't. 

Weight loss problems are generally a mental issue with individuals looking for any kind of "out" that let's them convince themselves that what they know is bad for them is actually good.

Well as i heard from a dietician, with eatin 2 boiled eggs on every morning(be sure its yellow side is still a little liquid) body burns fat like you run 2 hours each day. You guys can try it. It is really working, but it can be really boring and disgusting to eat 2 whole damn eggs for every single day. You can lower the number and can try to cook it in different ways.
