Ignoring Exercise

The majority of the calories you burn each day are determined by your resting metabolic rate (RMR).

RMR is largely a function of how much muscle you have on your frame, and how hard that muscle is made to work. Therefore adding activities that promote or maintain muscle mass will make your body work harder and elevate your metabolism. Weight training is the single best form of exercise for achieving these goals.
