Losing weight is always a battle for me. Right now Im working as hard as I could in losing some pounds and after reading that spicy foods can burn fat, I was really glad, since Im a spicy foods lover. The spicier the better. I spent most of my life with people with mixed culture, which played a greater part with my food preferences.

So heres how it works: The speed of your metabolism is often said to determine how easy you will put on weight or keep it off. To some extent this is true, your metabolism is processing of food to give the body energy and nutrients that it needs to survive. It is thought that 60% of the calories that the metabolism uses are to keep everything within the body functioning. 30% is used to give us the energy to go about our daily activities. 10% of the calories are needed to process the food that is eaten. There are many ways about how to boost the metabolism so that it burns the calories faster and thus allows us to lose weight, eat more food or eat the foods we like to eat and not gain weight. One of these is eating spicy foods which will boost metabolism and aid in weight loss. It gives a little kick to your heart rate. These little kicks will result in a temporary increase in your metabolism, which will help you burn fat a little easier for a bit.
