Maybe you already knew that particular foods contain high thermogenic effect, which essentially means they help to boost your metabolism. However, the majority of the population has no idea exactly what foods burn calories as you chew, or contain particular nutrients and compounds that fuel your body’s internal metabolic furnace and help you literally melt the calories you consume far more quickly.
Here are ten foods that nutritionists credit with helping you burn fat…
1. Hot Peppers
Chili peppers sure do have a kick! And it’s a compound called “capsaicin” that actually gives them their zip and heats up the body internally to help you burn off those excess calories. So if you want to melt extra fat away, food experts recommend adding freshly chopped, dry, pepper spices like cayenne and red chilies, and hot sauces to your soups, sauces, and rice dishes.
