Eating spicy foods may often be a competition or a macho pursuit. The burn of the pepper or salsa may bite but perhaps you keep eating more to show that you have more endurance than the rest. However, this spicy challenge may offer more than a show of testosterone.
Did you know that hot spices can help boost your metabolism up to 25%? In the Salsa Sexy book, our meal options encourage the use of hot spices like cayenne peppers and jalapenos. Spices make the food taste wonderful and give you fat burning metabolism benefits. Self magazine says, “Studies show that the main compound in chilies, called capsaicin, has a thermogenic effect and may cause the body to burn bonus calories for 20 minutes post chow-down.”
If you don’t enjoy spicy foods, you can use dietary cayenne pepper supplements to give your body a metabolism boost without putting the spices in the foods.
