Try This Seasoning to Help You Slim Down

This Week's TipsTry This Seasoning to Help You Slim Down

Wouldn't it be great if you could just sprinkle something on your food to help you lose weight? Research suggests these fiery flakes might fit the bill: crushed red pepper.

A small batch of studies has shown that a key ingredient in hot peppers -- capsaicin -- may help curb appetite and hinder the storage of fat.

Slim and Spicy
If you're serious about losing weight, red pepper flakes alone aren't going to move the dial much. But they could be a useful addition to a legitimate weight loss plan. Researchers in one study concluded that capsaicin may boost sympathetic nervous system activity in a way that dampens hunger and calorie intake later in the day. And related research found that capsiate -- a capsaicin-like compound from sweet peppers -- hindered fat storage and boosted weight loss.

Fiery-Hot Weight Loss
Besides possibly helping you lose more weight, adding heat to low-calorie meals will boost flavor and interest as well -- whether you choose capsaicin-rich cayenne pepper, diced jalapenos, or any variety of hot chili peppers. Try a few of these pungent pepper recipes from EatingWell:

Hearty, spicy, and low fat. Everyone wins with Three-Bean Chili.

Light, aromatic, Asian inspired. Treat yourself to Coconut-Crusted Tofu with Peach-Lemongrass Salsa.

Cheesy, gooey, hot. Give your toasted cheese some zip with Hot Chile Grilled Cheese

I've actually heard that before about hot sauce. So yes, that makes sense to me.

I love me some spicy foods, and I sprinkle (or dump) crushed red peppers on EVERYTHING. I have also heard that this works for weight loss so thanks for posting about it!

I love spicy foods, too. My favorite lunch is: rice, carrots, onions, red peppers, ketchup and rooster hot sauce. I know it sounds dumb, but I love it. It takes a long time to eat, and I normally have to drink two big glasses of water with it.
DISCLAIMER: I expect to lose this weight over the next 6 months to 5 years. I'm not going to feel like a failure if it takes an entire month to lose 1 pound. I'm going to feel like a success when that happens! I may offer advice that I'm currently not taking myself. Feel free to call me on that!

I know I feel more satisfied by something with a lot of flavor.
Whether you think you can, or you think you can't--you're right.

How to loose the last 6lbs
You're not obese let alone morbidly so. You lose the weight the same way you lost it before. A calorie deficit.
