For all the naysayers on the cayenne pepper boosting your metabolism, she is correct. Google it. As little as 1 tbsp. hot peppers in a cooked dish can boost your metabolism. The effects may be temporary (but isn't all metabolism boosters somewhat temporary?) and it affects each person differently, but if you were to introduce more spicy food in to your diet you would see a change. Even a sprinkle of cayenne on a boiled egg can certainly boost it for a little while, again, it is how it affects a person individually. I learned this in my Nutrition class at culinary school. We were juicing every morning and one day we added in cayenne pepper, wow, what a difference. I've been using this little trick for a while.

"Red Pepper, when eaten early in the day, decreases food intake later in the day. Some credit the ingredient capsaicin for being the catalyst for decreasing overall calorie intake and for increasing metabolism." from You on a Diet by Dr. Roizen and Dr. Oz. Capsaicin also has anti fungal and anti bacterial properties. This can have other health benefits as well. I mix vinegar hot pepper sauce with salt water for a sore throat gargle during cold and flu season.

Your diet sounds super extreme. Are you sure you are losing fat and not just water and precious muscle? Doesn't sound like a great idea, but hey if it works for you then go for it.
