Hot Stuff For Fighting Fat

If you're in the market for a natural way to boost thermogenesis and you just happen to like hot, spicy food you're in for a real treat. Capsaicin, the active ingredient in chili peppers, does more than give this vegetable that spicy kick. It can also increase your metabolic rate and actually raise your body temperature. It all adds up to enhanced fat-burning potential.

The Bigger Picture: As we discussed in the Breaking News segment posted at yesterday, intense HIT style training does more to burn fat than hours of medium-intensity cardio. Sprinkle some chili peppers over a protein-packed chicken breast, and what have you got? Yet another way to help cut yourself down to a totally shredded specimen for summer. Chili peppers also make a great complement to salads and other physique-friendly fare. Dig in!
