Turn up the heat

Using hot spices in your dishes will help decrease the cravings for food. That is what the research stated in the British Journal of Nutrition. Want one more reason to include some heat? Researchers with the State University of New York at Buffalo discovered that capsaicin (a substance present in chilies) causes your brain to produce feel-good endorphins.

Hot sauces are a great way to up the heat in your meals. Just be careful to read the ingredients label and check to see how much salt you will be consuming.  Too much salt will make it harder for you to lose weight.

Capsaicin can make you feel fuller and maybe a bit happier. Can someone please pass the hot sauce?
