It's getting chilly out there, so why not heat things up a little?!
One great piece of nutritional information we'd like to share with you is that spicy foods can aid in your hCG weight loss program at OMNI Medical Center ! According to a recent article on a British fitness web site, spicy foods help burn fat because they temporarily increase your metabolic rate.
Some spices have even been found to raise your metabolic rate by as much as 50% for up to three hours after you consume the hot stuff on your plate!
The reason spices boost your metabolic rate is because they raise your body’s temperature (you will notice this yourself when eating spicy foods), which in turn raises your heart rate.
Spices are also believed to have thermogenic properties (which means they stimulate your body’s fat burning process).
You may have even noticed that cayenne, a red hot chili pepper, is found in many weight loss pills because it stimulates fat burning.
The overall result is that eating spicy foods can increase the amount of fat and calories you burn for a short (but beneficial) amount of time following consumption.
