Pulled this from blog. Good stuff for successful weight loss.

Metabolism Killers:
  • diets that are consistently low in calories without any cheats, refeeds, or high days
  • diets that are low in protein and fat and high in processed carbs
  • going hungry most of the day and eating a 1-2 big meals
  • hours of moderate aerobic exercise followed by hours of sitting at a desk or in front of a television
  • light weights and high-reps, you know, for toning...

Metabolism Boosters:
  • diets that zig-zag calories so that some days there's actually a surplus
  • diets that are high in lean protein, healthy fat, and fresh fruits and vegetables
  • eating every 2-3 hours for a total of 6-8 small protein and carb balanced meals per day
  • brief very intense cardio intervals combined with a high general daily activity level
  • heavy total body strength workouts
