Red Pepper as an Appetite Suppressant

According to a study on the effects of red pepper on thermogenesis and appetite by scientists at Purdue University, 1 gram of red pepper eaten with a meal can not only suppress appetite but also cause the body to heat up (thermogenesis), burning calories in the process. Is this the new miracle food for natural weight loss?

Not quite.

First, the suppressing effect on appetite was significant in participants who were non-users (did not usually eat red pepper), but not in habitual users. This suggests that if you decide to use red pepper as an appetite suppressant, it may only work until you become accustomed to eating red pepper. The effect of red pepper on both appetite suppression and thermogenesis is apparently mediated by the burn in your mouth, so taking it in capsule form would not be expected to have as much effect.

Second, the effective dose in this study was 1 gram. This was about three times greater than the amount of red pepper participants who were non-users “preferred” on their food.

Bottom line. Adding red pepper to your food might help suppress your appetite and burn calories, unless, of course, you happen to like red pepper, in which case it probably won’t help you much.

Weight Loss Tip: Add some red pepper to your food. It can’t hurt, and might help you lose weight naturally; but don’t cancel your gym membership just yet.

What a great web log. I spend hours on the net reading blogs, about tons of various subjects. I have to first of all give praise to whoever created your theme and second of all to you for writing what i can only describe as an fabulous article. I honestly believe there is a skill to writing articles that only very few posses and honestly you got it. The combining of demonstrative and upper-class content is by all odds super rare with the astronomic amount of blogs on the cyberspace.

Heya! I realize this is somewhat off-topic but I needed to ask.
Does running a well-established blog like yours require a lot of work?

I’m brand new to running a blog but I do write in my diary everyday.

I’d like to start a blog so I can share my own experience
and thoughts online. Please let me know if you have any kind of recommendations
or tips for brand new aspiring blog owners. Thankyou!
