How Chili Peppers Burn That Fat During The Holidays!

See also

Research now shows that capsaicin - which gives peppers their kick - promotes weight loss. How? It triggers changes in proteins that help fight fat accumulation.

The hotter the chili, the more capsaicin. If your tongue is new to the game of hot spices, start mild with chili powder and work your way up to jalapenos and habaneros.

How can you use it during the holidays? Easy! Bake apples with cinnamon and chili powder, create a fruit salad with pineapple, chili powder and lime juice and add chilies to hummus.

BONUS: The heat of the chilies turns up your body's internal temperature keeping you warm in the colder months!
