Spices Can Help You Slim

A clinical study released recently (by the Penn State University) links the use of spices to the slimming process.

In particular spices such as paprika, turmeric, cayenne pepper and cinnamon can help prevent the build up of too much body fat.

A typical modern diet contains a high percentage of fats and carbohydrates and although necessary as they provide us with energy, can lead to a build up of fat reserves that will never get used.

Too much fat reserve can lead to obesity which increases the risk of heart disease and Type 2 Diabetes.

When we eat foods with a high percentage of fat the fat that is not used immediately to form our fuel or energy gets turned into triglycerides. Triglycerides are a type of fat that is common in the blood. Eating foods with spice can reduce the level of triglycerides by up to 30%.

Many experts within the industry connected to slimming and weight loss have thought this for some time – but now, over the last few years real concrete evidence has come to light.

One of the spices that is creating the most interest is cayenne pepper (also known as red hot chili pepper and capsicum) – the properties contained in the spice can help burn and prevent the build up of excess body fat.

Cayenne pepper can reduce appetite, raise the metabolism, burn calories, reduces body mass and reduces body fat.

If you have been looking for a reason to start the diet the you have always promised yourself – maybe adding spices to your meals would be an ideal starting point.
