Increase the number of calories spent and reduce your calorie intake if being overweight is due to overeating and not following a sensible diet. A high-protein diet can boost metabolism by up to 80-100 calories per day and your body burns calories when digesting and metabolizing the protein you eat. One of the best things you can do to become healthier is to eliminate the vast majority of added sugar, added fat, and processed food.
