"By facilitating hormonal action, cyclic AMP may
regulate the body's thermogenic response to food, increase the body's basic
metabolic rate, and increase utilization of body fat"

Eating a big breakfast fights obesity and disease - Science Daily,
8/5/13 - "Metabolism is impacted by the body's
circadian rhythm -- the biological process that the body follows over a 24
hour cycle. So the time of day we eat can have a big impact on the way our
bodies process food ... 93 obese women were randomly assigned to one of two
isocaloric groups. Each consumed a moderate-carbohydrate, moderate-fat diet
totaling 1,400 calories daily for a period of 12 weeks. The first group
consumed 700 calories at breakfast, 500 at lunch, and 200 at dinner. The
second group ate a 200 calorie breakfast, 500 calorie lunch, and 700 calorie
dinner ... By the end of the study, participants in the "big breakfast"
group had lost an average of 17.8 pounds each and three inches off their
waist line, compared to a 7.3 pound and 1.4 inch loss for participants in
the "big dinner" group ... those in the big breakfast group were found to
have significantly lower levels of the hunger-regulating hormone ghrelin"

- Can you really change
your metabolism? - MSNBC, 10/20/06 -
"although your metabolism is usually fairly stable,
there are several things you can do to help rev it up ... Exercise is No. 1
... Don't skip meals ... Colder weather increases metabolism"
Pill 'could lead to longer lives' - BBC News, 3/31/05 -
"the mice with the highest metabolic rate lived
around 25% longer than those with the lowest ... When mice were given
thyroxine, they had increased metabolic rates and lived longer ... However,
a leading specialist in human hormone disorders said the findings would "not
be true for humans""
Green Tea Boosts Metabolism Without Increasing Heart Rate - Clinical
Psychiatry News, 3/04 -
"Patients took two 375-mg capsules twice daily, for
a total daily epigallocatechin gallate dose of 270 mg ... By week 12, body
weight decreased by a mean of 4.6% and waist circumference by 4.48%"

- I’ve heard that receiving
weekly B-12 shots can help your metabolism. Any truth to it? - Dr. Weil,
Uncoupled and surviving: individual mice with high metabolism have greater
mitochondrial uncoupling and live longer - Aging Cell. 2004
"We sought associations between longevity and
individual variations in energy metabolism in a cohort of outbred mice. We
found a positive association between metabolic intensity (kJ daily food
assimilation expressed as g/body mass) and lifespan, but no relationships of
lifespan to body mass, fat mass or lean body mass. Mice in the upper
quartile of metabolic intensities had greater resting oxygen consumption by
17% and lived 36% longer than mice in the lowest intensity quartile"

mouse - Am J Physiol. 1998 Sep;275(3 Pt 2):R667-72 -
"These findings demonstrate that CLA reduces body
fat by several mechanisms, including a reduced energy intake, increased
metabolic rate, and a shift in the nocturnal fuel mix."
Feeding acetyl-L-carnitine and lipoic acid to old rats significantly
improves metabolic function while decreasing oxidative stress - Proc
Natl Acad Sci U S A 2002 May 14;99(10):7184 -
"Feeding ALCAR in combination with LA increased
metabolism and lowered oxidative stress more than either compound alone"
