Myth or Fact? Eating Hot Peppers Helps You Lose Weight

This MIGHT be a fact!

It seems not enough studies have been done to consider this a solid fact, but spicy foods contain a heat generating component called capsaicin; this component is what causes your body heat to rise when you consume spicy foods which causes your metabolism to speed up.

Plus the heat generated on your tongue should slow your eating thus allowing you to feel full before overeating.

Just be mindful of your intake because excessive consumption of spicy foods can have negative effects as well.
