Day 12 New Year New You : Spice Things Up To Boost Metabolism!

So what’s the “hottest” new metabolism boosting magic potion?

Capsaicin. It’s the stuff in hot peppers that makes fire in your mouth.

And according to a new study from The Netherlands, it will keep your fat-burning metabolism at the “normal” level when you’re eating a lower calorie diet.

You see, usually when you cut calories, your body gets wise to what you’re up to and it actually cuts back on the calories it burns throughout the day. For some reason, it would rather stay fat… 🙂

But subjects in the study who took 2.56mg of capsaicin with each meal had no decrease in fat burning.

Interesting? As some of you know I’m a chilli wimp- so I’ll be trying the supplement to see what happens…

Happy Holidays

To get that much, it’s the equivalent of about 1.03 grams of red chilli pepper. But if you’re not into spicy food, you can get yourself a red pepper or cayenne pepper supplement in capsule form.
