Not eating breakfast makes your metabolism worse(or at least not eating an hour after you wake up)

I think eating 6 small meals a day makes your metabolism better..like for example, by small meals i mean: yogurt and granola, oatmeal, fruit...that kind of stuff.. Eating more in small quantities is better than Eating less in large quantities. So ive heard

drinking green tea 3 times a day raises ur metabolism by 3%. so think if u burn 2000 cal/day w/o exercise, with tea u burn 60 more cals. add that up its counts for a lot.

added muscle mass increases your resting metabolism rate.

You can't equate the weightloss during the night to calories burned. 3-4 pounds seems a little high but 2 pounds is perfecly normal. Of course this doesn't mean that burning 7000 cals per night is normal. Most of the weight discrepancy is fluid loss.
