The key here is ice cold. The cold water needs to be heated up by your body, which in turn burns calories. Sure, this isn't going to create 6-pack abs, but every calorie counts. Water will also help you feel full, which will decrease cravings for unhealthy treats.

Seems obvious, right? Instead of driving through the parking garage lane-by-lane to find the spot closest to the office, why not park far away and get a morning walk in? You'll burn a few calories and save some time cruising through the lot.

After fasting all night, your metabolism has essentially stopped. Eating first thing in the morning will kick-start that metabolism for the day. Skipping breakfast will leave your body in starvation mode, which essentially halts your metabolism. Make breakfast healthy with a bowl of oatmeal, fruit, or for those on-the-go, a healthy meal replacement shake.
