15- Chili Pepper
Eating chili peppers is traditionally linked to boosting metabolism and losing weight.
Both green and red chilies contain capsaicin, a chemical compound that can increase fat burning and reduce appetite.
Nowadays, this substance is being used as a weight-loss ingredient in many commercial supplements.
According to a recent study, eating 1 gram of red or green chili pepper can increase fat burning and reduce appetite in people who didn’t regularly eat spicy foods.
However, people already eating spicy foods show no significant effect. The reason could be the build-up of tolerance against capsaicin.
Eating spicy foods, in general, is shown to increase fat burning and reduce your appetite temporarily. However, their weight loss effect may only be helpful in people who didn’t regularly eat spicy foods.
