Chillis, the red hot way of losing weight

Eating chillis can make you lose weight by speeding up your metabolism and burning fat, scientists have found.

Researchers claim that heat generated by the spicy food oxidises layers of fat as well as increasing metabolism. And those with mild taste buds can also benefit from peppers without having to endure the stinging aftertaste. An equivalent of the main ingredient, capsaicin, has been found in non-spicy varieties of the food as well.
