Hot Peppers to burn calories

Chili peppers are tasty in all kinds of food from tuna salad to pizza.  I try to add them to at least one dish a week not only for the spicy kick but because they suppress appetite and help burn calories.  Red chili peppers are one of the best "fat burning" foods.  The spicier the pepper, the better.

When eating a chili it increases your core body temp which leads to the increased calorie burn.  Eating chili's, especially Cayenne peppers can reduce hunger and increase energy. The capsaicin found in Cayenne pepper speeds up your metabolism and also sheds unwanted toxins from your body.  It also can reduce blood cholesterol.
