There is a fat-burning substance that is present in spicy foods such as peppers Its called Capsaicin, and it helps boost the metabolism.
Unfortunately, not many find it favourable to sink their teeth into spicy foods simply because they are not able to tolerate the strong taste. With this, they are unable to achieve the desired effects of the Capsaicin substance.

Adding spicy foods in your meal can contribute to increasing the rate of metabolism of your body thus helping the body to burn more fats and lose unwanted weight.
