Increasing your metabolism helps you burn fat more quickly. Believe it or not, carbs actually help on a diet because they give your body the energy it needs to burn off calories. Don't skip breakfast, and when you sit down to eat, opt for hot meals to speed up your metabolism while you eat. And, of course, make sure you get plenty of exercise to condition your body to burn fat more efficiently.
