Giving your metabolism a little jolt is as simple as having a cup of joe in the morning – provided you drink it without milk or sugar. A study in the journal Metabolism says that the caffeine in two cups of coffee can result in a 66 kilogram (145-pound) woman burning up to 50 extra calories over four hours.
