A study found that adding a-quarter teaspoon of chili pepper to each meal can prevent overeating. Mainly because we tend to slow down and take fewer bites when our mouth feels like it’s on fire… Which explains why many people in the study stopped eating when they’d consumed just 75% of their daily calories! And as a bonus, the capsaicin in chili peppers boosts our metabolism, helping us burn an extra 100 calories a day.
