For those of you who like a hot sensation to accompany your meals, you are in luck! Adding cayenne pepper to your beloved avocado toast, or jalapeños on your nachos is not only a flavorful and spicy addition but also offers some serious benefits to your metabolism. A chemical called capsaicin which can speed up your metabolism for three hours is commonly found in peppers.
Experts from food distribution companies advise people to indulge and benefit from this food group. Try adding chipotles or jalapeños to soups and egg dishes for a spicy kick, and sprinkle cayenne pepper in everything you consume, from salad dressings to chocolate cake.
Of course, it isn’t solely about the food that you eat. Lack of sleep adversely affects your appetite-regulating hormones and makes your body ill-equipped to process sugar thereby leading to unwanted weight gain. It has also been linked to a significant increase in the risk of obesity, so make sure that in addition to eating healthy, you are also getting enough rest.
Add to all this regular physical activity like exercise to help you stay flexible, toned and invigorated to face each new day no matter what.
