SPICING UP THE FIGHT
Hot peppers help melt love handles


Love to have your food extra hot? Well, other than spicing up your taste buds, chilli pepper also helps in losing those extra inches around the waist.
Scientists have said that hot peppers contain a substance called capsaicin that can actually cause your body to heat up.
However, now researchers have found growing evidence that the body-heat-generating power of peppers might even lend a hand in our quest to lose those extra inches accumulating around the waistline.
And fortunately for those who do not appreciate the “burn” of hot peppers, there are plants that make a nonburning version of capsaicin called dihydrocapsiate (DCT) that could have the benefits of peppers without the pungency.
Researchers at the UCLA Center for Human Nutrition said that data provided convincing evidence that, at least for several hours after a test meal was consumed, energy expenditure was significantly increased in the group consuming the highest amount of DCT. In fact, it was almost double that of the placebo group. ANI
