How to Eat More and Lose Weight

Go ahead and splurge on that third cup of coffee. Each cup of caffeine you drink gives you a powerful boost -- in your metabolism. The more you drink, the more you'll burn.

As far as food goes, fish is pretty amazing. Ingest 300 mg of fish oil a day and your metabolism will burn an extra 400 calories. Get your fish oil in capsules and you won't have as much fish to filet.

Lean red meat burns calories while you eat it. Your metabolism has to kick into high gear to break it down. Plus, the muscle it builds burns more calories per pound than fat.

Organic fruits and vegetables are pesticide free. Pesticides aren't just icky, they slow down your metabolism. Stick to pesticide-free fresh food and your metabolism will burn faster while you eat.

We all know that water is good for you. But did you know that it also speeds up your metabolism? Water quickly flushes fat and calories through your body so that you absorb less.

Your metabolism has to speed up to return cold drinks to body temperature. Drink 8 ice-cold glasses of water a day and you'll burn an extra 490 calories per week.

The capsacin in hot peppers burns your metabolism along with your tongue. It also curbs your appetite so that you eat less later. So the next time you pig out, spice it up then eat till you pop...or burn out.

THE SERENITY PRAYER

GOD GRANT ME THE SERENITY
TO ACCEPT THE THINGS I CANNOT CHANGE;
COURAGE TO CHANGE THE THINGS I CAN;
AND WISDOM TO KNOW THE DIFFERENCE.

LIVING ONE DAY AT A TIME;
ENJOYING ONE MOMENT AT A TIME;
ACCEPTING HARDSHIPS AS THE PATHWAY TO PEACE;
TAKING, AS HE DID, THIS SINFUL WORLD
AS IT IS, NOT AS I WOULD HAVE IT;
TRUSTING THAT HE WILL MAKE ALL THINGS RIGHT
IF I SURRENDER TO HIS WILL;
THAT I MAY BE REASONABLY HAPPY IN THIS LIFE
AND SUPREMELY HAPPY WITH HIM
FOREVER IN THE NEXT.
AMEN.
